I know... I was thinking the same thing. Probably blue interior. Like most Fleetwood Limiteds...

Nah, I am looking to get away from the repair cost of the N*s. I appreciate the offer, though. :bouncy:

The Fleetwood stopped production in 1996, but a special model was produced by Superior Coachworks of Lima, OH, under orders from Cadillac, from 1998-1999. Only about 700 were produced. It is basically a DeVille that was stretched a foot- 6" in the cab for the rear seat and 6" in the trunk.

Ths car began as a Sedan de Ville and was shipped to Superior Coachbuilders, whose MAIN BUSINESS is limousines, Livery Sedans, Flower Cars, and Hearses.

Cadillac made up a SPECIAL oprion for cars that there going to go there to be converted into FLEETWOOD LIMITEDS .... it was a "Mandatory" option, meaning you could NOT get one of these without the option, BUT this option was NOT included in the base list price! THE Option:-

there's the brochure for these non-fleetwood fleetwoods

i would really love to get one, but i do fear the heavy duty suspension repair costs... and the almost non-existent replacement parts for the coach-built interior parts

They are very unique, but I am afraid they are not different enough (aside from the extension) to interest me enough to even test drive one.

AGREED, AGREED, and AGREED!!!!

I'll stick with the O.G. body on frame dinosaur thank you very much. I can't imagine that big FWD barge driving any nicer than my RWD barge. Actually I think it would be worse, considering the lack of low end grunt of the N* and all that added weight from stretching it out.

I do wish my Fleetwood had those fold down wood writing tables though, that's a very nice Bently/Rolls Royce type of touch. (Hint to Cadillac, make that standard if you ever build another uber-lux barge).
