Welcome to my listing for my lovely well loved rare, recently commissioned and stunning condition, 1981 Cadillac Fleetwood Brougham in Black. This jaw dropping American cruiser has been well looked after. It performs and stops exactly how it should and has been very reliable since it's extensive re-commissioning (engine rebuild costing many thousands). This car received many compliments out and about, it certainly is a rare interesting sight. I am more than happy to discuss the car and am very enthusiastic about it, please feel free to contact Stuart on 07888 822949 The car comes with MOT until Dec 2021, ready to be enjoyed this summer! A Brief Background About The Car The origins of this classic cruiser stem from it's purchase originally from the prestigious American Car Dealership, Lendrum and Hartman in London. The car was then used in the 1980's through to the early 1990's as a department store prop (this is why we believe this is such excellent and clean condition!). The car has only been stored in a dry and warm garage and religiously only taken out in dry sunny weather (a weekend driver!). This can be proved by the original bright blue interior and seats which have not suffered at all from the usual wear or tears of cars from this period of time. Engine And Gearbox The gorgeous 5.7L engine sounds fantastic and is very happy to cruise at any speed you choose. It is a reliable and comfortable ride, the engine keeps a very good temperature and does not use any excess fluids.I am very proud of the engine bay after sourcing and installing many new parts and made sure the car is reliable and good to look at too! Some of the many parts purchased and fitted to the vehicle include - * Fullly Rebuilt 5.7L V8 Engine * Rebuilt TH400 Auto Box * New Inlet Manifold * New Quick Fuel Carb * New Water Pump * New High Pressure Pump * New Headman Headers * New Brakes All Round * New Master Cylinder & Servo * All New Shocks * All New Tyres * New Headlights * New Alternator * New Propshaft * Limited Slip Diff * New Distributor Leads * New Camshaft + Lifters * New Key + Spare * New Rear Bumper Fittings Exterior & Paint Work The paint is finished in an original dark and shiny Gloss Black (not resprayed!). I've always felt this has given the car more of a "Executive" finish and looks exciting against todays modern car dull greys/silvers. I have kept the paint polished and maintained as well as the underneath clean - there is no rust to be found anywhere. This top of the range classic Cadillac saloon has many nice exterior touches, it features many shiny metal chrome trim pieces and original hubcaps. All panels are overall straight and the trim sections are in good order. All glass is is in great condition and the badges around the car look fantastic. Underneath the car is solid (including sills) has already had some of kind of rust proofing applied and looks excellent. Interior The very 80's interior is very clean and as close as it can be to "as new". The comfy, blue velour front and rear seats, matching door cards and roof lining are in great condition with no staining or cigarette markings etc. The drivers seat bolster even remains un torn and un-worn! The fully intact dashboard has no cracks whatsoever and all equipment and functions operate as they should. There is also a custom made 3 piece custom gauge mount which looks the part! Suspension & Tyres The suspension and rear end of the car has benefited from being reconditioned and many parts painted. The tyres are new and in excellent condition, there are no knocks or squeals anywhere. Any questions please feel free to message me, I have videos of the vehicle running and driving also if needed!
