I got a 2fer with this find of classic caddies. I found them tucked back in the corner of a Pasadena parking structure, a 1964 Coupe Deville Convertible and a massive 1966 1967 (I think) Cadillac Fleetwood. One was the car of the masses. The latter was the largest mass produced car of its time, meant for the person who wanted the biggest most limo like car they could get right off a dealers lot.
The ’64 Convertible is what stopped me in my tracks with one thought “want”. To see more carpy cell phone pics of the two you must make the jump.
I have to admit the Cadillac Fleetwood carries a special memory or two. It was the car of choice for my friend Van’s Dad when we were growing up. That beast had a much longer wheelbase, usually a foot or more, than the standard caddy and it was all put into the back seat leg room so even as teens we could sit back there with our legs stretched out.
The glory of that car for us was the fact it was so heavy it could plow through any amount of snow. Any amount which made it great for use as a “tow car” on snow days when his Dad would get a giant rope and tie on a dozen sleds behind it and spend hours just towing us neighborhood kids around the block.
