Description

As usual Fleetwood exterior trim and interior appointments enriched the Series 75 in 1966. The first major redesign since 1961 featured a full perimeter frame. The new look brought the appearance of the big sedan and limousine up-to-date so that it matched the visual impression of other Cadillac lines. A big jump in sales for both regular production models was the result.

New at Cadillac for 1967 was a redesigned side panel contour that created a longer look and more sculptured appearance. Technical improvements included a revised engine valve train, different carburettor, Mylar printed circuit instrument panel, re-tuned body mounts and a new engine fan with clutch for quieter operation.

Despite not altering its popular product in any major way and maintaining the same basic styling and engineering in 1968, in 1969 Cadillac was restyled in the Eldorado image and only 995 units were produced. These had a completely new 7.7 litre V8 engine that produced 375 HP. They were also made to meet ecological requirements and it was the first car to travel 500,000 miles during tests in laboratory.

This example, one of the last produced before the Eldorado redesign of this line is not only special for this reason, but also as it has a mediocre 27,718 recorded miles. Finished in Sable Black with Dove Grey interior and has been kept in good general condition.

Additional equipment includes; automatic height control, automatic climate control system, electric windows and air chassis.
