1968 Cadillac Fleetwood 60 Special Sedan
Mesa, AZ 85215
From around 1956 until the mid 1980s, Dodge, Plymouth and even Chrysler squads were the most ubiquitous police cars in North America. In fact, the biggest department, the NYPD, used Plymouth and Dodge squads almost exclusively until the rear-drive M body car was finally axed in 1989.
The no-frills Savoy two-door sedan was home to another engine of considerable repute, the infamous 413 Max Wedge, a Super Stock monster block Chrysler introduced in the spring of 1962.
Classic Car Overview
I am the 3rd owner of this garage kept 4 door luxury sedan. It has a 472 cubic V8 engine rated at 375 hp, a turbo hydramatic transmission - with only 62,546 original miles. I purchased this vehicle in 2005 with under 61K miles from a retired police officer. The glove box even has the Cadillac Salesman’s business card from the 2nd owner from the mid-70's. The upholstery has been professionally updated including seats, doors, headliner, & carpet. This consists of 3 complimentary colors that give the interior a classic look. This car has been garage kept since purchased (including previous owner), so the dash is perfect, no cracks or peeling - all original.
The Cadillac also includes a custom headliner for the 40" x 55" three fold sliding ragtop. The ragtop was installed by the manufacturer, Street Beat in Phoenix. The clock does not work & the rear passenger window does not roll down from the driver's seat, but works sitting in the back seat. All the wires have been checked & my guess is one of the window switch’s needs to be rebuilt. I’ve had all the necessary work performed to the engine & braking system. Some of the work performed includes: new spark plugs & wires, electronic igniter, distributor cap, electronic distributor coil, oil & filter, rebuilt carburetor, new battery, left & right rear wheel cylinders, left & right calipers, brake pads, left & right brake line hose, wheel seals, thermostat, PCV valve, brake fluid, vacuum hose, flushed radiator, & new valve cover gasket.
The AC system is complete & I was told the condenser needs to be rebuilt or converted to current R134A. The stereo system consists of matching Kenwood amplifiers & Polk Audio speakers. The entire system is controlled with an Eclipse CD Navigation head unit & secured with a Clifford alarm w/motion detector & hood pin switch. This sounds system & alarm was professionally installed, as evident with all receipts included w/sale of vehicle. Being a 40 year classic, there are some minor dents & scratches. The previous owner had put the two dents at the ends of the car-drivers side rear fin & passenger side front chrome bumper (see pictures).
Paint still shines as shown but its just not a $35,000 vehicle. With little investment in new paint, this can easily sell for profit. There is also BFGoodrich Silvertown's 235/70/15 which includes the classic 3" white walls. I've only driven 100 miles on these tires which included a 4 wheel alignment. In addition to the Silvertown whitewalls, I also purchased a new 225/70/15 all-season spare tire for the trunk. I have the receipts for all of the work & accessories installed on this vehicle that will be provided with the sale of vehicle. I will be happy to work with you & your shipping company if need be. Buyer is responsible for all shipping costs. Has been appraised by all my insurance carriers for $20,000.
***Update***After a recent oil change and inspection, they noticed a small transmission leak. I took it to a tranny place here in Arizona and they found the leak and said it would cost $500 to fix or $900 for a rebuilt job with 1 year warranty. I will wait for the buyer to decide if they want this fixed or not due to the warranty being here in Arizona. This is the reason for the $1,450 price drop from the original asking price (transmission rebuild and time). If I fix, then the price will increase the cost of the rebuild.
