Fellow Cadillac fancier and photographic contributor to this fine website, Jayson Coombes, alerted me this weekend to a most excellent example of 1966 Cadillac he spotted online. This gorgeous Fleetwood Series 75 Formal Sedan, painted in Nocturne Blue, if my estimations are correct.
It was originally listed on this website. A true time capsule, with a mere 15,000 miles on the clock. From the pictures, I believe it. Sadly, she’s since been sold, hopefully to a happy new owner. Anyway, I eagerly scrolled through the pictures. Said photos are very well done. I love it when a photographer knows what he’s doing. So many times, too many times, that is not the case.
So many horrible craigslist and ebay ads have led me to keep my expectations low. Honestly, does NO ONE realize you can turn your cell phone sideways and get the whole frickin’ car in the frame?! But never mind. These pictures are the opposite of those terrible CL, et al, sale photos.
And 1966 was a very good year for Cadillacs. I plan on doing a more comprehensive post on the ’66 Cadillacs at some point in the future, but today, just enjoy the pictures, and remember when Cadillac was truly the Standard of the World. Nothing but photos of classic Cadillac style to follow, but trust me, you’ll enjoy them. My hat’s off to the photographer for Pedigree Motorcars, at any rate. Well done!
OK, OK, one final word: Gaw-juss!
