    Maybe it was a press car for 7-up or something.

    Those wheels are worth something. Otherwise, it either needs redone or replaced.

    Nothing more laughable than folks ruining the looks of these cars then attempting to sell them at a higher price. Its like taking a Picasso or a Monnet and adding your own colors to it then saying that will be an extra 10k because I made it 'better'

    Anyone had to change the cats on one of these cars and have a recommended replacement brand / source?
    Oh good! Its much closer to you than me. He has come down on the price some but I'm sure you could shake him down a bit more. Are you looking to replace with new parts?

    Hard to say. I'm open to options, but IMO price is still very high for the work needed.

    Probably look to replace with factory, but maybe not. Either way, must be done post haste. Car cannot be registered in metro Atlanta as it sits.

    ...and it goes so well with the faded blue interior

    Really clean looking Fleetwood coupe. Have I mentioned how much I really want one of these, lately?

    Here's another winner. Was there a discussion before about John Deere paint jobs? Are they a "thing"? Apparently so...

    According to the description he hasn't got around to 'improving' the interior. I foresee yellow vinyl seats, speakers, and TVs galore.

    According to this, 1938 was the first Cadillac-offered sunroof.
    For "modern" cars, it looks like 1969 was the first year.

    Nice looking Brougham if the price stays low enough. I prefer black, but I've got a soft spot for the blue ones. My grandpa had a blue one when I was little and I fell in love with it.

    I do believe the front clip on this car was replaced with one off of a DeVille, because the hood ornament and accompanying trim do not match the rest of the car. Small thing to correct, but it probably WAS in an accident. Also, the poor grammar in the ebay post is a laugh and a half.

    I'd agree with it being in an accident. It also has a deville front bumper (note the rubber pieces on the bumper- thin white line means deville)

    1976 Talisman with Astroroof. Condition looks good but I'm not so much a fan of the Continental kit and grille:
