    Wow, my kind of car!

    I guess my Dad's was a '74. His had round headlights, this has rectangular. And his wasn't a Fleetwood, only a DeVille. It was his last car before he passed on. Nice boat. Gads, what legroom, specially in the back seat! Could be a show car.

    8-Track? 8-Track? :-)

    It would be a garage queen. I would let that unit go to someone who would put a lot of time into enjoying it.

    I would go look though! The car might just grab you.

    That thing is a tank. I like the 100 mph speedometer, too! Let us know if you take the plunge.

    Wow, it's in surprisingly good condition --- the only thing I can see wrong at first glance is that the holder for the driver's seatbelt (on top of the seat) is missing. Which being a piece of plastic from the 70's that gets a lot of use, is not unexpected.
