I know the black primer makes it look like crap, but gotta get rid of that surface rust....what more could you ask for for 400 bucks...its a 74 with a 472 with 71K miles

Very nice car!!! I almost hesitate to say the word "Potential", but that car has a LOT of it... Potential has cost me a LOT of money in the past, but it looks like you have a BIG project to work on! 472s are gas-guzzlers, getting about 10 mpg if you're lucky, but you have quite a jewel in the rough there. Good luck!

What is the extra small seat there in the middle?

Were these cars factory produced or conversions?

put a '75/'76 nose on it :)

one of the many cars my father/grandfather has is a '71 Fleetwood limo (factory) I should get some pics... it is just like this one minus the rust, they used to use it for weddings and stuff.

I agree I like the limo overall but the 74 nose is by far my least favorite. I could really get to appreciating the incredible back seat room one of the Fleetwood 75s have.

You sure don't see many '74-'76 Fleetwood 75s anymore.

That one is similar to my limo, except mine has the partition window making it a limo and not the 9-passenger sedan which yours is. Mine also has the leather front seat. The 9-passenger sedan is the best bet for owners with long legs- the limo front seat does not go back very far due to the space needed for the partition window and motor.

The Fleetwood '74-'76 75s are quite a bit longer than the Fleetwood Brougham (252.2" compared to 233.7").

I actually bought this car because it didnt have the partition, they have one here at a junkyard that does and I couldnt drive it comfortably because Im to tall. that and I paid 400 for this one and he wants 600 for the one at the junkyard that probably doesnt run.
