My Boy Blue- 1967 Cadillac Fleetwood Brougham

Last week at the NY Auto Show, Johan De Nysschen was fielding questions from a circle of roughly twenty auto journalists (and myself) about Cadillac's future plans.  On his last call for questions, I briefly considered asking whether there would be a CT6 Bro-ham or CT6 Talisman edition on the horizon.  Sensing he might not have been amused with my question, I kept it to myself and giggled at what his response might have been.  Sadly, the combo of baby blue paint over baby blue leather seats over a baby blue dash is not available on the 2017 Cadillac option list.  The color palette of the 1960's cars was quite a bit more adventurous than today.  Don't worry though as this 1967 Cadillac Fleetwood Brougham is for sale in Wappingers Falls, NY for $7,500 via craigslist.



The seller claims this beauty rides like a dream and has all the bells and whistles a car could have in 1967.  Optional equipment included are: power steering & brakes, power door locks, soft ray glass, twilight sentinel, power front adjuster, 6 way bench seat, 4 way driver bucket seat, automatic climate control, and trunk lock.


The Caddy has had a host of maintenance noted: rebuilt starter, new voltage regulator, new battery, new battery cables, new muffler, new hood insulation, good original driver side mirror, good original door release handle, oil and filter change, lubricated front end suspension, and passed NYS inspection in 2015.


The car has a claimed 68,000 miles on it.  The odometer is shown under the giant ribbon style speedometer.  Those style of speedometers were once common place and were last seen in the GM G-body cars.

Cory has stripped the Mercedes C43 interior and is about to swap in the C43 headliner into the C36.

  3. The woman who owned this car originally had a beehive hairdo and thought the Monterey Pop Festival was a gathering of fathers.
