    I've never been a fan of red interiors, but you just can't beat white/white on a classic Caddy.

    Beautiful Coupe!

    I have always been a fan of red interiors. When I was a kid my dad had a 1969 Corvette Stingray white with red interior. He got so many women he literally had to beat the ***** off of him because of that car. I loved red interiors ever since.

    Oh yeah, that is s big problem. It is one of the reasons why my Eldorado is in the upholstery shop today. It is a red on red car though.

    This guy has been trying to sell this for a while:

    The economy stinks out here. He just isn't going to get it here. He needs to take it national.

    A beat down brougham but it has 350,000 miles on it!

    On the white coupe, why does the invoice picture say 4 door????
    Misprint on the invoice, I find that hard to believe.

    On the 350 miler, "all the pieces you need to build a 2 door."! ...what?

    Thats pretty wild. Off to the right under description it says 1980 Coupe Fleetwood. With Deville scratched out. Im guessing it was a misprint. Pretty wild

    Have a look at this Beautiful Cadillac. Right up my alley!!
    1980 was the year to have with this body style. Good old carburated big block Cadillac under the hood, even if it was rather anemic compared to its 500cu zenith in the 1970 Eldorado. I still think white is the wrong color on this car though, they look a lot nicer in burgandy, black, navy blue, dark grey, red, dark green, etc Darker colors IMO are the way to go on cars with lots of chrome, its a great contrast and just makes the chrome pop.

    I'm going to speak in the defense of red interiors. My 89 has a red interior and I absolutely love it. Mine is a little worn, but if you keep it cleaned and conditioned, it looks amazing in the sun, and at night when it's illuminated by the interior lights, it looks so damn luxurious.

    I was wondering who would notice that. lol lol Well, maybe only half the interior is good and the backseat portion of the body is rotten. Cut out that section and you are set.

    This doesn't look too bad---what pictures there are of it anyway.

    Another one where it might have sold already if it had some DECENT sized pictures. I didn't know they had a turbo option back then. Riiiiggghhhhtttt...

    ^^^I see I was beaten to this 1980 Brougham Coupe...
    Beautiful Caddy. My brougham coupe I had would have looked like this, if the previous owner left the top whiteinstead of redoing it in blue to match the interior it had...
    I miss that Caddy

    Apparently the 6+ months I spent searching for a Fleetwood was just a dry season. I was having a hard time finding one that wasn't a rustbucket, or junkyard fodder, let alone one in my favorite color. Now that I've bought one, they're popping up all over, this one only 20 miles away. For that price, I'd hope it's mint. Annoying.

    With that many miles it is not likely to be mint or have the window sticker still on. My 1986 has less miles than that car and it is nearly ten years older. lol lol lol

    I learned long ago that high miles don't always mean a bad car. And low miles don't always mean a nice car. For that price, though, I imagine it's a well-kept one. I may go see it just out of curiosity.
