Fleetwood Cadillac History 1982

Fleetwood Cadillac Moels & History 1982

Two Fleetwoods were available this year: The Fleetwood Brougham as a 2-door coupe and a 4-door sedan; and a Fleetwood Limousine as a 4-door sedan, 4-door formal limousine, and a commercial chassis.

While the innovative (but flawed) variable-displacement V8-6-4 engine no longer powered other Cadillacs, it remained active under limousine hoods for several more years. Fleetwood’s standard limo seated eight. For an extra thousand dollars or so, the Formal limo held seven, with a sliding glass partition between compartments. A second control panel let passengers adjust temperature and power windows. Heather cloth interior came in black or dark gray-blue. Front compartment of the Formal limo was black, with black leather in seating areas.
