The Fleetwagon: 1971 Cadillac Fleetwood Wagon

General motors made a number of wagons based on their body-on-frame C-body platform, including the Buick Estate, Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser, Pontiac Safari, and Chevrolet Kingswood and Townsman. But GM never gave Cadillac a big family friendly wagon, so you’ll need to find one that’s been converted by a car customizer, like this next thing. Find this 1971 Cadillac Fleetwood Wagon bidding for $14,000 in Stanley, WI via auctions. Tip from Orlando.

From the seller:


This 1971 Cadillac Fleetwood “El Deora” station wagon is reportedly one of only three units that were assembled by American Sunroof Corporation using a rear-wheel-drive Sixty Special chassis and elements from related General Motors vehicles. In 2007, it received an exterior restoration as well as a new headliner and carpeting. It draws power from a 472ci V8 paired with a three-speed automatic transmission and comes with power windows, cruise control, Coker whitewall tires, and a roof-mounted luggage rack. Finished in white over a brown leather interior, this custom Cadillac is now offered by the selling dealer with a clear Illinois title.


The body was customized by American Sunroof Corporation (ASC) to include a wagon-style rear end from related General Motors vehicles. The exterior was refinished in white and the brightwork was refurbished in 2007. Features include quad headlights, a chrome luggage rack, vertical taillamps, and “El Deora” badging on the tailgate.


The interior is fitted with a brown leather split bench up front, a solid bench in the rear, and coordinating finishes for the dash, door panels, and newer headliner and carpeting. The dash is complemented with woodgrain veneer. Amenities include a push-button radio, power windows, cruise control, automatic climate control, and second-row footrests. The selling dealer notes that the clock and the dome light are inoperative.
