Sandy...
Did any of the earlier years (80's - 92) have an option or as a standard feature, the wheel skirts, or was that a FWD fleetwood/ 60 exclusive?

In the '80s certain years of the RWD Fleetwood/Brougham had mini skirts. The FWD Cadillacs of 1984.5 to present, only the Fleetwoods had skirts.

I can remember the dealer that I bought mine at had one in stock, when I ordered mine. He said that they didn't stock them because their "average" customer had a hard enough time raising the money or credit or meeting the payments on just a basic deVille and that in 85% of the situations, a deVille was more than they could really bite off. Yet..... the one that they DID order, they ordered with the ULTRA Pkg, with the 22 way power seats, which added $3,500.00 to the sticker! Ummmmm. During the course of the year, I recall seeing 3 Sixty Specials in their inventory. The told me that they sold one about every other month!!! So, 3 in stock was a 6 month supply!! They sold like 35 Caddies a month at the time, so outta 70 Caddies, 1 would be a Sixty Special. They probably sold (counting mine) under 6 for the year. Someone else ordered one. It was nice. A black-on-black with Garnet leather with MY chromed wheels and a moonroof. In 1995 they traded it on a Seville and the dealer wholsaled the car out, never to be seen again. It was filthy but no damage anywhere.
