This 1988 Cadillac Fleetwood Brougham is just a powerwash away from regaining its former elegance. Or, as my grandfather would have succinctly put it, “It just needs a little elbow grease.” Cadillac sold over 53,000 of these big four-door, rear-wheel drive sedans (other than the stretch limos, the only RWD Caddy left in the catalog), equipped with a 5.0L 4-bbl V8 and (I’m sure a much-appreciated) 25-gallon fuel tank. If the Fleetwood Brougham’s mile-long list of standard features wasn’t enough for you, there was always the Fleetwood Brougham d‘Elegance package which added (among other things): Twilight Sentinental — which automatically turned on your lights at dusk; controlled cycle wipers; cruise control; automatic luggage compartment release; six-way power front passenger seat; and rear seat reading lamps. We came across this white RealRide last year in Kenmore. It looks like it was bought new at August Cadillac in Niagara Falls.
