Looks like a 1959 Fleetwood 75...

The car pictured is a 1959 Cadillac Fleetwood 75. This was an extended commercial chassis and was primary used in livery service and by funeral homes as family member support vehicles. The Fleewood 75 came in with both a limousine divided (with solid and sliding glass partition) cabin and with no partition. Both variations came with two "jump" seats for additional passenger seating in the rear compartment.

It's a 59 Series 75. However, the Series 75 and the Commercial Chassis are two different animals. The Commercial Chassis, used for Hearses, Flower Cars, Ambulances, was on a 157" wheelbase where the Series 75 had a 153" wheelbase.

The Series 75 had two variations, formal limousine with partition window, and black leather drivers compartment, and Executive 9 passenger sedan with matching drivers/passenger's compartment trims and no partition.

^^^ I think you have the definitive answer to you question about the year and model of this cadillac limousine. Mr. Rizzo is the resident authority on Cadillac limosines and commercial vehicles.

Yeah, but I answered first. So I'm best...

That's the holy grail of Cadillac Limos.

'59's are prized but unfortunately, because of their over the top styling, the butchers, hot rodders and "purple skull" crowd have destroyed or otherwise molested a large number of Series 75's and commercial vehicles so finding a pristine, untouched car is very difficult and VERY expensive. I've seen '59 flower cars, not running, and rough, but whole command $10k prices just because they weren't subjected to the "flames n sidepipes" treatment.

While many go for these, they are not the "ultimate" for me personally, as I reserve that lofty spot for the '74-'76 cars.

Thank you Orconn! I'm flattered!

I hope you came to know what kind of car is that one.
