Exceptionally clean for 96,000 miles. Nice looking, but sadly it has none of the options that were available on this car, except for Remote keyless entry.

No Moonroof, chromed wheels, heated windshield, anti theft security, or comfort seating pkg. Only option that I see is leather interior. It's Light Beige Metallic with "Neutral" Interior.

what is the comfort seating package?

The Sixty Special is one of my favorite E bodies, the other being the Fleetwood Coupe

lol... thorw a newer set of wheels on it, like I have done... and none of thsoe other options besides maybe the moon roof were needed or useful... basically if I was in the market, I wouldn't let the "low options" detur me... well, my car is a very low optioned car (leather seats, gold badges and auto turnk only)

Comfort Seating Pkg. is:
POWER reclining Driver & Passenger Seatbacks
Driver's side memory recall for 2 drivers
Easy Exit and memory posistion for driver seat
(when you turn off the car, the driver seat powers all the way back
for "easy exit" and remains there. When you get in next time it then recalls where it was last time you drove it.)

I agree with Leloz about the interior condition. They could of had it detailed by their detail department. It looks like it was not even vacummed - including the trunk. Our Cadillac dealer only charges $129 for complete detail. I'm taking mine in next month.

Wow that easy exit thing is cool! Was that ahead of it's time? Has anyone else noticed that the seats on the 93 Sixty Special are different than the seats on the 92 Sixty Special, they have a different leather design.

The 1993 Sixty Special IS the 1992 Fleetwood. The 1993 Sixty Special ULTRA IS the 1992 Sixty Special. The names were shuffled for 1993.

1992 . .1993
Fleetwood . .Sixty Special
Sixty Special . .Sixty Special ULTRA

Interesting...I didnt know that there was a Sixty Special Ultra, I just thought they combined the Fleetwood and Sixty Special in '92 to make the '93 Sixty Special.

IMO the '89-'92 Sixty/'93 Ultra seats are flat out ugly... I don't care how comfy they are or soft the leather is.... they look like seats that would belong in a late 80's exotic muscle car or something.

The '93 Sixty seats I like alot, I like the extra creases, they look soft too.... the DeVille seats, you really don't sink down into them... actually my back seat isn't very worn, and thus very firm... so you actually sit ontop the seat, it just feels very different, the driver seat, and to a slightly less degree, the passenger seat have kinda sunk.... which IMO makes it a bit more comfortable.

Funny that you mention that Rick, a while back, i was at a used car lot, and there was a REALLY gorgeous '93 SDV...white, dark blue cloth top, dark blue leather, six slot wheels 98k miles $3250 :mad2: :( well anyways, I sat in the car, and you really sink into the leather seats as opposed to my cloth ones. You dont sit "on" my cloth seats, you sit in them, but you REALLY sink into the leather. I had the seat as high up as it could go, and i could barely see the indicator lights on the right side. It was wierd, if all leather devilles are like this, im glad i have the cloth version

yeah, in those pictures, I don't like the Ultra (the looks) but I really like the Sixty.

The '91 Coupe that we test drove before I got the '93.... well, this car was stright from NYC and it showed... plus it had 167k miles which was the main thing that turned us off.... but black simulated convertible top, black outside, black leather interior, dark tinted windows.... talk about a Mafia car :) thats just how the guy explained it too "its a big ass fvckin Mafia car"

anyway... when I got int he passenger side,, I just remember sinking down right into the seat... it was so comfortable...

I have been unable to reproduce that experience in the '93..... you just don't sink down....

I dunno... ya know, maybe I do, but since its my daily driver, I don't realize it... come to think of it, the seat in my Olds was more firm, you didn't sink down (as much) yet that car has soft seats compared to others....

and the '79... yeah, you sink into that one more, especially the back seat where you even sink into the back...gosh that car is comfortable!

come to think of it... "normal" cars that I have been in...2000 Tundra, 2001 Stratus, 1994 Jetta, 2001 Jetta etc... have all been more firm, and then when I sit in the Coupe, I do sink in.... so maybe the placebo effect is in place here and I just don't realize it.

I know today, when I got in my car... havn't drove it for 2.5 days... I was like... *THIS* is my car, and I was comfortable...

is it just me, or is the only real comfortable driving position is with the seat lowered all the way, but then just a quick tap to make the rear of the seat not rest in the bottom out position (when its all the way down, it seems to be more rough... a tad) then bring the front of the seat up slightly more then the back, to give the seat a reclined feel... then ajust the backrest accordingly to give you a relaxed, yet still upright position.... then the key.... the steering wheel *all* the way down... so that it faces you nearly stright on?

both the Olds and the '79, the steering wheel isn't *all* the way down but it feels perfect... for some reason, the only way the '93 feels right is for it to be like that.

last week I was playing with the seat, putting it up more... it was just wayy too high, I felt like I was sitting in the middle of the cabin, nothing looked right or was in reach correctly, and then to reach the pedals I had to move the seat up (I sit kinda far back... or so it seems) I dunno... hard to explain.

interesting......

When my car was in the body shop, I had to drive my dad's 97 Lumina for a week, now let me tell you a thing or two about uncomfortable seats, they are "scooped out" like they dont have a flat bottom like the devilles do, and they have a curved backrest too. which for me is quite uncomfortable. Here is a pic
The seats in this car are too low for me, and i think they are flat and lack cushioning. But I would have to say the car that has the all time worst seats of any car i have ridden in is my friends' '98 Eclipse GS Convertible. These seats are literally like sitting on concrete. There is no padding anywhere. (But she loves the seats in my car!) anyways, I would have to say the best seats of any Cadillac I've ever sat in are either the '78 Eldorado Biarritz because you immediately sink into these seats, and its very difficult to get out, It's like sinking into a favorite smoking chair in an old dark english gentlemens club, where you can smell the cigar smoke, cognac and burbon lingering in the air. Heres an example



The second most comfortable seat I've ever sat in in any Cadillac I would have to say is the 1990 Brougham D'Elegance w/ leather. It's almost as plush as the seats in the '78 Eldorado Biarritz. In comparison to the seats in my '92 deville, the brougham's seat actually had more side support. It felt like you were sitting "in" this seat more than I was used to in my car, very supportive and very comfortable, and IIRC, the backrest came up higher than it does in my car.



From what I've seen at auto shows and by going to many many new car dealers, no one makes seats like these anymore. Nowadays, everyone wants firm seats.
