You cannot car fax anything before 1981 so save your money. Sounds like a winner so far.

STFU man. It is a really good car. You have to appreciate them to know what he had there.

Imagine taking a Barcalounger to the Drag Strip. And winning.

I'd rather take a Barcalounger down to Daytona Beach during Spring Break, and score...chicks. I enjoy driving too fucking much to introduce the pungent odor of mothballs and Geritol into the mix

It's burgundy with white interior, a tiny bit of surface rust, cracked rear tail light, flat tires and and dead battery. I don't want a project, but tires, battery, a tail light and a little rust don't scare me.

Shane's observations are where I'm at...fuel injection, interior problems, I don't want to deal with that. I've seen the bumper extension rot, don't like it but could deal with it.

4:00 tomorrow we'll see...I'll give an update tomorrow night.
Don't screw around.

Buy it.

It is NOT some Chevy, and it is not some
B-O-P. It's a CADILLAC, from when they still had traces of greatness in them and name still meant something.

At that mileage, consider it a barn find.

If that mileage is correct you could clean it up and flip it for a LOT of $$$

But you know what?

I think you would like it, a lot.

Don't forget the white belt and white shoes to be period correct.

And yes, they will swallow up your golf clubs very nicely in the trunk, they will lay flat in there.
