Very nice, miles? Yr.? price paid if you want.
That is such an awsome color! It looks similar to the Crimson Deville our dealership has in the showroom.

She's a 1989 with a lil' over 120k. I paid $2,200 for her with 115k from a Cadillac collector parting with the lovely lady you see here, and an 88 that wasn't the gem she is. I was originally interested in his white with blue top 88 priced at $850. He parked the 89 next to the 88 most likely on purpose while I was looking at the 88. I noticed the 88 was missing some emblems, the action on the key lock was a bit rusty, a couple of windows didn't work, steam came out of the floor vens due to a busted heater core and there was no headliner. I then checked out the 89 and the difference was like night and day. The 89 sounded better, rode smoother and there was kind of a sence of belonging if you can understand that, as I sat in it. It was almost like I had been driving the car for years during that test drive. The only money it needed put into it was tires and belts/hoses. The guy also had a 79 Coupe DeVille which I also test drove for sale. He had a 1990 Brougham as a daily driver, an early 70's Sedan DeVille, and a 63 Fleetwood Brougham, all original. It was I guess you could say, true love. :)

I notice one strange difference with your car Dope. The Cadillac emblem on the trunk is on the left instead of over the 5.0 emblem. Never seen one there before.

Yeah, it was removed and replaced incorrectly most likely for the new paint. I can kinda see part of the foam from the last "c" in Cadillac still above the "5.0 LITER" but it's been painted over. I've been tossing the idea around of moving it in it's correct place but I dunno what the paint looks like under that "Cadillac."

If it's just glued you could probably buff it out, proceed with caution!!

Nice Cadillac! I especially like the personal touches such as the animal print pillow in the back and the fuzzy dice. Very elegant ride you have there! I go f_cking ape over the late 80's Broughmans. You chose....wisely

Thanks V. I had leapord print seat covers too but the seats were so mice it would've been a crime to cover them. Barge, it's glued on, but It's not really too much of a bother. It makes it an original to me. I'll always be able to recognize her.
