It seems like every post recently starts the same: “It’s been a while since I posted a car…” You know what? It’s been a while since I posted a car. However, I’m feeling fancy, so let’s get fancy with this 1967 Cadillac Fleetwood Seventy-Five (limo). That’s right. The car that looks like something a past President would have driven in. (Apparently an ex-president of South Africa did).

Definitely not in its current state though. While it may look fine from a distance, aside from the fact that its ass is on the ground, up close reveals that neglect is taking its toll. While it’s not THAT bad, the paint is starting to rust in some parts, as well as some of the chrome.

Speaking of the outside, this is a lot of Cadillac. We’re talking a length of 244.5 inches. That’s over twenty feet long! If that wasn’t enough, she’s got a curb weight of over 5450 pounds. That’s a big girl. However, under the hood is a 429 cubic inch V8 that makes an advertised 340 horsepower. Apparently it’s enough to propel all that from zero to sixty in about ten seconds. Crazy, right?

It is a limo, so what about this inside? Well, it’s a bit worse than the outside. It’s ripped, torn, pitted, dirty, and so on, but this is Rotting in Style! That’s just the way I like it.

It has quite a bit. There are footrests that can turn into jump seats. There are temperature controls, window controls, partition controls, and perhaps an ejector seat button? While I like my idea better, apparently that’s part of the AM radio control system. I believe that and the partition (and partition controls obviously) where options, because I didn’t see them in pictures of all the Fleetwood Seventy-Fives when I was doing research.

Up front is a typical 1960s Cadillac look. There are a couple extra buttons, switches, and dials that I am not sure about, but hey, it’s a limo. Even the driver seat is one long, comfy bench.

While I don’t think this car will be toting around the rich and famous any time soon in its current condition, it still has that timeless automotive fashion as sit here, Rotting in Style.
