i wonder why they put all those other car names in the keywords section at the bottom and didn't even put fleetwood in there ... :hmm:

does seem legit though

... also it has all power options!

"Fleetwood" is already in the listing title and description.

Beautiful car!!

Seems to be a pretty standard price to me. Either you don't shop around or Fleetwoods are rare in Seattle. Either way, I blame hipsters.

I keep a regular watch over the local Fleetwood Broughams in Florida. There is a Coupe Brougham that has been being relisted for the last three years with a 350 in it. I have talked the owner down to $2700. One day when I decide I want to buy it, I will head out.

The price this guy is asking in Seattle would have bought you a triple white (with red carpet) '92 De'Elegance in Miami with wire wheels, sunroof and all other options. The car looked literally brand new and was listed as having "0 Miles" (Which was of course inaccurate...because there is just no way)

I contacted the owner and he wanted $5k, which is a lot for a FWB, but in the end it sold for $4k. He also had a blue one later on, again with all options. Interestingly, in spite of a near identical condition, he only asked $3,500 for the blue one.

Prior to buying the Lincoln, I looked at all the local Broughams, even went to see a few. I will in the end buy another, but am trying not to sacrifice any more of my parking spots at the moment, as there are times I actually regularly use the vacant ones. There have been two Lincolns in Fl recently that have particularly appealed to me. I found one by complete accident, but it was exactly like one I always said I would like to own (And particularly rare and specific, so I will probably not find another one, even if I were looking) in Daytona that sold for $2,000. If I had the parking reserved for it already, I would have bought it during the CLC meet.

Looks to be in very nice shape and offered at a fair price if it runs well!

I'd agree. In this day and age, cars of such vintage are seen as gas hogs, so they likely don't sell well, especially in your *ahem* eco-friendly part of the world.

Florida, especially, seems awash in cheap, nice Cadillacs!

^This. Where you can get a showroom quality FWB for $5k and call it pricey.

Austin finds ones in that price range all the time in Georgia and FL. I think they're just less common up there.

I saw one of those with a black exterior and the wheels from the last generation Fleetwood that Austin showed me once and decided if I were ever going to get one, that would be it.

:yeah: You could probably park near a truckstop with showers, and you'd have a better "house" than many folks! :histeric:
