    1968 Fleetwood 75 Limo

    Has anyone reading this owned the 68 Fleetwood 75 Limo? Looking at one of these which is in decent condition as a unique alternative to every other caddy out there, and wondering what is the going rate for these, as well as what are common problems above and beyond the standard 68 cadillac devilles?

    I'm looking to own it through the winter and sell it so I can pickup a convertible next year... are the limos an easy sell or are they more difficult to sell over the other models?

    Thanks for the advice!

    Re: 1968 Fleetwood 75 Limo

    The limos are rare, but they can be a very tough sell due to their size. Most people don't have the room to store them. The formal limo is probably the tougher sell vs the 9 passenger sedan, as the formal car can be uncomfortable for taller drivers because of the very limited adjustment range of the front seat. The biggest thing with the Series 75 is the separate rear AC unit. They can be pricey to fix if not fully operational. Also, there are many bits of trim unique to this model, so make sure the car you pick up is complete. Other than that, check for rust in all the usual places and that all the options work as they should. Mechanicals are stock 1968 Cadillac. In absolute top condition, these cars shouldn't cost more than about 15-17K. A nice driver quality example should run closer to 9-10K. Good luck!

    Thanks for the advice. The car is about 1000 miles away, so would have to transport it, which I'm willing to do, but the other guy didn't seem comfortable using an escrow service, so don't think it will work out.

    Thanks again!
