1996 Fleetwood inquiries

Recommended Posts

I have always had a soft spot for specifically a 1996 Cadillac Fleetwood. I have possibly found one but could use some info from here.

Car has 22k miles. NY owned but never winter driven. Always stored in a heated garage. Supposed to be near mint. ( I have not seen it for myself)

Black and chrome, no landau (surprised)

Asking price is too high for me personally at 10,500. But if the car was as nice as it is said to be I would like an idea of a fair price I should entertain.

Honestly in all of my sights of this era and newer is that they do not retain a high value. I have seen nice ones that just sit waiting for a buyer that may never come. I am really looking for a DD so this would not be a great fit for longevity. If the price was right I would buy it as a DD and coat it annually. 

Can someone give me an idea of how far off I am from logical thinking...

KBB says typical asking is $6.2K with typical sales rage $4k-6.7K.  Low miles and if it is actually in great condition certainly makes it worth more to me.

So maybe offer then $5K, let them know you plan to keep looking, but to contact you if they later decide to accept your price?

I share your enthusiasm for these models but I can't imagine with gas prices going up they are salable except to a true enthusiast.

Thanks. Fuel is a sore subject... 

a few unique problems to these Caddys is the lack of manufacturers of parts. For my Seville parts are nearly impossible to find, and have been for a long time now. 

They are not like Chevys, Fords, and Chryslers that you could get most parts for.

Rock................Nice car but $10k nice?

I see a couple of them in Tampa area.

Some have sunburn and parking lot scars for $6k asking.

Needing some TLC too..........

Is it a dealer?

SCREW gas prices..........

Brandon just released all that oil to benefit us!  Refiners make Millions!

WE pay 5 cents a gallon less!

I save my gas money to RIDE!

Mmmmm Black Fleetwood.............

I do care about the gas prices only because of how much it costs to fuel. I average about 80-90 a week.

It is better in the warm months when I can ride the motorcycle. Even that is noticeable. I was paying about 5.50 to fill up, now almost 10.

Car is not from a dealer, but rather part of an estate. I really need to see it for myself...

Check Tampa area FB.

Sure its gotta be a 96?

Several 03-04s dirt cheap!

Sure..........they gonna need TLC.

But if you want a $pendy nice one .....you gotta pay!

See several Allantes dirt cheap too.........

BUT...........Buyers for these are few and far between.

(Except for a Caddy nut with the sickness!)

Specifically 96 is the most desired. I cant stand the early 2000s ones. Also did not care for the Allante. Looks nice but probably the hardest to find part. 

If I could find a decent one for a decent price that I would be comfortable using for a DD I would jump on it. My Seville is still a garage queen. (another one that is impossible to get parts for) I don't need... another mint one
