What are your two favorite Cadillac models? Not necessarily any year, just the two models you like most.

Mine are...

1. Definitely the Fleetwood Series Seventy-Five. I will consider the nine-passenger sedan and limousine as one model since, except for the partition window, the right rear door lock and the rear power door lock switch on the limo, they are essentially the same car.

2. The Fleetwood Brougham. Especially the years when they had their own exclusive wheelbase (1965-1976).

Sixty Special Fleetwood because of its embodiment of Luxury and because the Fleetwood name is almost synonymous with Cadillac.

Series 61 de Ville because of the slight differences in wheel-base, trim, and options and because I like the V-emblem better than the wreath.

The Devilles are technically Series 62s. The Series 61 became the Calais.

My 3rd choice would probably be a Coupe de Ville. A step up from the Calais but lighter than a Fleetwood Brougham so acceleration is a little faster.
A Coupe de Ville would be the ideal Cadillac to modify for more power.

I love the Fleetwood. Nothing embodied the prestige, class, and formality of a Cadillac better than a Fleetwood in a subdued color.

I also love the convertible models, the 1970 and older ones before they switched to the vulgar Eldorado platform.

Yes, those Fleetwoods were really something. One reason, IMO, why Cadillac was higher in prestige than Lincoln... Lincoln did not offer a car with an extended wheelbase like Cadillac did with the Fleetwood Sixty-Special and Brougham.

I agree. I definitely prefer the RWD, 1970 and older DeVille convertibles over the Eldorado convertibles.
