The fourth generation Chevrolet Caprice (which was the final generation of the wagon version) was also sold as the Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser, Buick Roadmaster, and Cadillac Fleetwood. There were various trim differences between the different stalls of the GM stable, but Cadillac did not get a wagon version. Somebody saw that as an insult to the brand that bares the name of the founder of Detroit (Antoine de la Mothe, sieur du Cadillac 1658-1730) and they fixed it with what can only be described as a pretty good example of a Fleetwagon (and way better than the Leepu & Pitbul Caprice of the Craprice from the other day).

Occasionally the internet delivers something good. Not always. Mostly it produces bad news and insufferable spam, but today I stumbled into the perfect car for a badge that wanted to use on Halloween. What’s a badge? It is the little icon you see next to DT posts that are created by DT’s logo guru Kaibeezy (read more about the DT badges here). Anyway, I’m posting this next car ONLY because it matches the classic DT 59 Cadillac Eureka Landau badge. Find this 1974 Cadillac Fleetwood Hearse offered for $8500 in Phoenix, AZ via craigslist.
The Cadillac Fleetwood Talisman was sold from 1975-1976 as the ultimate expression of domestic opulence. It combined the long wheelbase girth of the Seventy-Five limousine with the package of the Fleetwood sedan all for an astonishing MSRP that could hit $17k in 1975 (when a Corvette cost $6,800). You don’t seem many around today, but if you’ve got the space for a 19.5 ft car (that is more than a foot longer than a second gen Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Van), it does seem like something worth a second glance. Find this 1975 Cadillac Fleetwood Talisman offered for $18,500 in Tulsa, OK via craigslist. Tip from Cory.
This next car comes right behind another big long wheelbase oddball with an extra set of jump seats, but it isn’t an ancient lumbering Volvo. It is a big V8 powered American luxury boat that seats 8 people and has enough velour to make any 80s fan happy. Find this 1986 Cadillac Fleetwood 75 offered for […]
To say that this next car will need some restoration is a bit of an understatement. The interior will need to be nuked from orbit (it’s the only way to be sure) and there is enough rust to earn a spot on the endangered species list…but…BUT…this thing is wicked sweet. It started life from the […]
This next car comes from Tanj! who writes: Not mine. Saw this as part of my morning searches. Low mile 1995 Fleetwood Brougham for sale in Austin for $4.3k. Leather seats look presentable. All chrome bits are intact and look undamaged. Even better all the plastic trim bits on the chrome and bumpers appear undamaged. […]
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 […]

In 1993 the Cadillac Fleetwood name was somewhat returned to its former glory when it was pulled off the front-drive C-body platform and plopped onto the rear-drive D-body shared with Buick Roadmaster, Chevy Caprice/Impala SS, and Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser. For the post part, the Fleetwood is a certified grandpa machine, but occasionally you’ll find a […]
When somebody claims they have a bulletproof car, it might be that they’ve added a few old phone books to the doors (thanks for that tip Burn Notice on USA!) or possibly even some safety glass, but when you find a car that was used by the Department of Defense to ferry around the Joint […]
