John R 1971 Cadillac Fleetwood 75 4dr Limousine

My Classic Caddy Limo

I bought my 1973 Cadillac Fleetwood 75 Series in December of last year. It has 48,000 original miles with the 472 CI motor. I had the car delivered from Kennet, Pennsylvania. From what I am told, the car was a funeral service car from new. Once it was retired from the fleet, a private collector bought it and stored the car until his death. Sometime afterwards a collector car dealer bought it, and that is when I purchased the vehicle. She is beautiful inside and out and original. I have always wanted one of these limos since I was a kid and still can't believe I own one so beautiful. I am a big Elvis fan and saw an Elvis impersonator when I was 12 years old. He had one of these limos in front of the venue he was performing at, and I couldn't stop looking at it. I guess that car was seared into my consciousness! It was only later I learned that the real Elvis always rode in these cars to and from his concerts. I don't know if Elvis ever rode in mine, but I can always dream that he did! The looks she gets when I take her on the ride is fun. The car makes people smile and want to get a closer look. By the way, her name is "Priscilla", of course!
