Can someone please help me. An 88 Brougham I'm looking at has a funny number that I cant figure out. 1G6DW51. Could this be a dealer special order? Thanks.

hmmm:

Digits six and seven represent the body style:
47-two-door coupe
69-four-door sedan
57-Eldorado coupe
69-Seville four-door sedan
67-Allanté
anything special done to it that you know of?

Only thing I know is it was owned by the owner of a Cadillac dealership, it is a 4 door Brougham d'elegance.

The same car, almost four years later?

Are you the same guy? Or just happened to find the car?

To answer the first owner's question, not there is nothing "special" about the car except the factory options.

The 51 in the VIN denotes a "69 Four Door Sedan/ Four Window Notch Back, with manual seat belts".
