Final Fleetwood: 1992 Cadillac Brougham Elite 49K Survivor – SOLD!
February 25, 2021 Update – we confirmed the seller of this “Classifind” deleted their listing, so we’re now able to call this one “SOLD!” While this one got away, please reach out either by email or call Rudy directly if you’d like to be informed when we come across something similar.
Yes, I know. 1992 was not the final year for the Cadillac Fleetwood and this example currently originally listed in January 2021 in Fayetteville, Georgia in fact, technically this isn’t even a Fleetwood as Cadillac Marketers made the latest in a series of botched moves several model years earlier when they tacked the brand name onto the GM Division’s new front-wheel-drive platform. I also realize from 1993 Cadillac moved the Fleetwood name back to the rounded traditional body-on-frame, rear-wheel-drive chassis. Sorry, as good as the rounded “Shamu-the-Whale” body looked Buick Roadmaster or Chevy Caprice trim, it never looked like a Cadillac to me. For these reasons, 1992 Broughams such as the white 49K mile example will always be the last true Cadillac Fleetwood in my humble opinion, even if it came powered by a Chevy small block. Also notable is that the chassis design of this vintage of real-wheel-drive Cadillac dates back to 1977 and this was the last Cadillac that did not come equipped with airbags.
What really sets this low mileage survivor for me is the white-over-red interior. I believe GM called these color combinations “Compact-A-Color” or something similar: if you know, please comment below to correct me if I’m wrong about that. White leather easily gets dirty just looking at it, so the condition of this car’s interior is simply outstanding.
In addition to hosting car shows and judging, Antique Automobile Club of America (“AACA”) Chapters hold touring events where members can drive their classics to a destination. Many members have one classic for judging but then have a different car that’s more comfortable to enjoy for the touring events. This Cadillac Brougham Elite will do great in both situations, so if you prefer keeping your car collection to just one classic, this may be the Caddy for you.
The current caretaker has their Brougham priced at $18,000. The Hagerty Insurance Online Valuation Tool confirms the private seller has their Cadillac priced between this guide’s #2 “Excellent” estimate of $14,500 and its #1 “Concours” appraisal of $21,400. Like it or not, prices for this classic Caddy’s jumped from old used car levels over the past three years but luckily have stabled somewhat during 2020.
