1979 Coupe Deville, 1995 FWB & 6 Other Non-Cadillacs.
Just bought this 80 FWB Coupe D'Elegance with a true 72k for $1500. Tell me what you think.
I had to do it Ben. I wasn't looking for another car right now, but i've always wanted a FWB coupe and IMO 80 is the best year with the 368 and TH400. The D'elegance package is just the icing on the cake.Oh my God! It reminds me of my '83 *sniff*.
I sold that in hopes of finding a white Fleetwood Coupe some day, now you bought one. I saw that on eBay and was considering it, but the blue interior turned me off. I already have two cars with dark blue, I don't need a third.
So, what are your plans? Total resto like with your Brougham, or does it need it?
Not sure yet, but I think i'm gonna leave it bone stock and build my 78 up a little bit. Wire spokes are def on the priority list.F'n awesome. Time for a 500 ...
I love the velour seats. My other Cad has leather, but nothing compares to the pillow cloth. And yeah, I'll get some nice clear pictures up right after I detail it. Right now it's kind of dingy on the pass side and needs a good compounding.hey dude NICE car! i love the d'elegance cloth seats. pretty much the same car except for you have 2 less doors than me. lets see more pictures already!
Didn't get on it yet, but i'll def let you know. As far as cruising the 368 feels pretty much on par with the 425. My 425 is freshly built, so i'm sure it's a little ballsier than this 27 yo 368 if you put them side by side.Say, how's the 368 compare to the good old four-and-a-quarter as far as power goes? I've always wondered how much of a difference that liter actually made. I know the 425 was rated at like 180hp and 320 lb/ft for the 4bbl and the 368, IIRC, was like 150hp & 270 lb/ft. Is it a big difference?
Yours looks great. I can't wait to detail the hell out of this one.Wow! Deja vu for me! Mine is an 81, with the exact same int/ext. I bought it locally last fall, for close to the same price as yours.
Thanks...On a side note i'd love to see some pics of yours. A blue coupe is what I was looking for when I bought my blue Fleetwood.Nice find. :thumbsup:
