The Cadillac Fleetwood Brougham was a short-lived model from 1977 to 1986, as Cadillac's pinnacle full-size luxury car. Available as a sedan or coupe, we've got a fine example of a 1981 Cadillac Fleetwood Brougham Sedan in our inventory right now, with just 6,300 miles, as reported by the current owner. This Bill Mitchell-designed land yacht is a perfect reminder of how opulent American luxury cars could become. Why not buy this well-preserved classic and relive those days?
Brown is a very Seventies color, which is where this 1981 Cadillac Fleetwood Brougham Sedan hails from. That's why it looks right in its Golden Brown paint job, a feat that many modern cars would struggle to pull off. Quad headlamps, wire-effect wheels, a vinyl-wrapped roof, the Cadillac hood-mounted logo, and long overhangs all embody the stereotypical American land yacht. This car comes in at 221 inches in length, with a 121.4-inch wheelbase, so you can imagine how much overhang there is. Inside, you've got a tan interior with plenty of wood trim on the dash and door cards. There's plush leather buttoned seating for five adults, and we are told that the front seats are power adjustable. The door locks and windows are power operated as well; there's said to be air conditioning and even cruise control for the ultimate in hassle-free driving at the time. The doors themselves are hefty affairs with plenty of padding for the armrests and spacious ashtrays to accommodate the copious amounts of cigar ash generated by the well-heeled from the Seventies and Eighties. They've also got reading lamps, as this was the pre-smartphone era when passengers talked to each other or simply read a book to pass the time. They could also fire up the Cadillac Symphonic Sound System, which included a radio and an auto-reverse tape player.
This Land Yacht of a 1981 Cadillac Fleetwood Brougham Sedan has a 6.0-liter L62 V8 driving the rear wheels via an automatic transmission.
