Fleetwood 60 Cadillac Models & History 1970

The Fleetwood models had all equipment offered in DeVilles plus Automatic Level Control. The Brougham also came standard with adjustable reading lights; Dual Comfort front seat with Two-Way power adjustment (left side) and a padded vinyl top. Distinguishing Sixty-Specials externally were bright metal wheel house moldings; wide full-length rocker panels with rear extensions and block lettering, denoting the series, positioned in back of the front wheel opening. At the end of the 1970 model run, the “standard” Sixty-Special sedan was dropped. A noticeable trim change was the use of a thin, horizontal belt line molding on all 1970 Sixty-Specials.
