UP FOR SALE IS MY 1996 CADILLAC FLEETWOOD BROUGHAM (SS). IT IS NAVY BLUE WITH A NICE GRAY INTERIOR.

THE CAR HAS 139,000 SHOWING ON THE ODOMETER. THIS IS PRETTY MUCH A NICE RUST FREE EXAMPLE THAT HAS BEEN WELL PRESERVED. IT STILL HAS THE ORIGINAL NAVY BLUE PAINT. IT IS STARTING TO SHOW SOME SWIRL MARKS, A LITTLE FADING, AND SOME SPIDER WEBBING ON THE TAIL SECTION.

AND NOW THE GOOD. SINCE I HAVE OWNED THE CAR I HAVE PUT THE FOLLOWING PARTS OR UPGRADES ON THE CAR, "BIG BLUE":

1. STAYING WITH THE BLUE THEME, WHEN WE TUNED UP THE CAR, I USED AC RAPID FIRE, SPARKPLUGS, BLUE 8MM TAYLOR SPARKPLUG WIRES. WE ALSO INSTALLED A NEW OPTISPARK, AND CRANK SENSOR. ALSO DID AN OIL CHANGE AND USED SYN-BLEND 10W-30 VALVOLINE MOTOR OIL.

2. WE FLUSHED THE RADIATOR AND HEATER CORE (NO LEAKS), AND INSTALLED A COMPLETE GOODYEAR BLUE HI TEMP RADIATOR AND HEATER HOSE SET. (USED PARTS RECOMMENDED FOR A 96 IMPALA SS WITH SAME LT-1 MOTOR), NEW 190 DEGREE THERMOSTAT, WATER PUMP, GASKETS AND PRESTONE ANTIFREEZE.

3. INSTALLED A NEW COLD AIR INTAKE, WITH A "BLUE" FILTER.

4. FLUSHED THE TRANS, REPLACED THE FILTER, AND USED SYNTHETIC TRANS FLUID.

5. REBUILT THE REAR (HAD SOME BEARING NOISE) USING THE BETTER TIMKEN REBUILD KIT, INSTALLED THE UPGRADED 3:42 REAR GEARS(FROM SUMMIT RACING) AND INSTALLED A POSI UNIT OUT OF A 95 IMPALA SS. ALSO PUT IN NEW SPRINGS SINCE WE ALREADY IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD.

6. SINCE WE WERE UPGRADING THE REAR, WE ALSO INSTALLED THE DISC BRAKE ASSEMBLY FROM THE 95 IMPALA SS ONTO THE REAR ( A FEATURE NOT OFFERED ON THE FLEETWOOD FOR SOME REASON). AT THIS POINT WE ALSO INSTALLED ALL NEW BRAKE LINES, ALL NEW ROTORS, NEW BRAKE PADS, AND ALL NEW REBUILT CALIPERS TO ALL 4 CORNERS. I ALSO INSTALLED THE STEALTH BRAKE UPGRADE SO INSTEAD OF THE 95 UP FRONT 5 REAR BRAKE PRESSURE, I BELIEVE IT GIVES YOU A 65 PERCENT UPFRONT, 35 PERCENT REAR BRAKE PRESSURE. IT IS A LARGE CAR, AND YOU WOULD LIKE IT STOP MORE EFFICIENTLY!

7. I THEN HAD SOME AUTO GAUGES INSTALLED UNDER ASH TRAY TO MONITOR THE OIL PRESSURE AND WATER TEMP, SINCE CADILLAC DOESN'T THINK YOU NEED TO KNOW ( ALL IDIOT LIGHTS ). THEY SPLIT THE OIL LINE SO YOU STILL HAVE THE GAUGE LIGHT UP ON THE DASH OR IS AN EASY UNINSTALL IF YOU THINK IT LOOKS TACKY ( SO 60'S - 70'S).

8. INSTALLED 2 1/2" TURBO MUFFLERS

9.INSTALLED NEW AC COMPRESSOR, HAD SYSTEM PURGED AND ALL NEW FREON PUT IN

10. TO FINISH OFF THE SS UPGRADES, WE PUT THE 17 " FACTORY IMPALA SS WHEELS
TO GIVE THE CAR A MUCH BETTER LOOK AND STANCE. I WILL SELL WITHOUT THE IMPALA SS WHEELS FOR LESS, IF YOU WOULD RATHER PUT YOUR OWN STYLE OF WHEELS ON THE CAR.

11. AFTER ALL THE UPGRADES, I ALSO SENT THE COMPUTER SENT OUT TO PCM FOR LESS SO THE CAR COULD UTILIZE ALL THE UPGRADES. IT IS SET UP TO USE 91 - 93 OCTANE.

12. SINCE THE UNDER CARRIAGE WAS SO CLEAN I ALSO HAD THE WHOLE UNDERSIDE SPRAYED WITH EASTWOOD ENCAPSULATOR AS A RUST PREVENTIVE TO INCREASE THE LONGEVITY OF THE CAR.

AS FAR AS THE INTERIOR GOES, I DON'T THINK ANYONE EVER SAT BACK THERE ( I DID AND IT FEELS LIKE BRAND NEW). EVEN THE PASSENGER SEAT FEELS NEW, AND THE ORIGINAL OWNER MUST HAVE BEEN A LIGHTWEIGHT, BECAUSE IT STILL HAS A NEW FEEL TO IT. ALSO IT ISN'T ALL CRACKED OR WORN LIKE I SEE ON A LOT THE CARS WITH MORE THEN 50000 MILES. NO CRACKS IN THE DASH, CLEAN ORIGINAL CARPET, NO HOLES . IT STILL HAS THE ORIGINAL AM/FM/CASSETTE AND FACTORY SPEAKERS. ALL THE WINDOWS GO UP AND DOWN , DOOR LOCKS ALL WORK, THE HEATED SEAT LIGHTS UP, BUT I DIDN'T USE DURING THE WINTER AND I CAN'T SAY FOR SURE IF THEY STILL HEAT UP.


FEEL FREE TO CALL WITH ANY QUESTIONS. I DO HAVE AN ANSWERING MACHINE. IF YOU LEAVE A MESSAGE, I WILL TRY TO GET BACK TO YOU AS SOON AS I CAN. 717-665-9408

WITH 139,000 MILES, IT WILL PROBABLY NEVER BE A SHOW CAR, BUT MECHANICALLY, THIS A GREAT DRIVER, LOOKS GREAT AND A FUN CAR TO DRIVE.


THANKS FOR LOOKING, RICK . THIS AD IS ALSO ON CRAIGSLIST, IN LANCASTER PA (WITH LOTS OF PICTURES)
