Ugly my opinion.  The lines don't flow.  The rear window is higher than the rear passenger window and rakes at a different angle.  It's awkward looking.

It'll move pretty quick, IF it is what he says it is.

A lot of the 70s & 80s Cadillac wagons have vinyl roofs to cover the body work; I've always liked the ones that don't.  

Reminds me of the 86 we owned.  Definitely like the Dark Blue instead of the Black.

Has the same ill fitting back window that messes with the lines.  It must have been an off the shelf Chevy part.

Our car started out as a 1986 Fleetwood Brougham.  Bought new & sent to a custom coach shop on the Eastside where it was married to part of a Buick (or was it Olds?) station wagon that took a hard front hit.   Might still have the paperwork somewhere.

I think that if matching moulding was used on the rear side windows it would look a lot better. True the size throws it off too, but I wonder if they had used the Olds Vista Cruiser windows in it what it would look like?  :chin:

Guess Mr. Joisey who bought our wagon decided it was time to let it go to the next buyer.

Exhaust pipes look the same.  Did yours have a 427?

Its the same car, same wheels, same interior, same engine.  New owner had it repainted, rechromed, polished trim & detailed engine compartment.  Think the dyno slips are still in our files.  That's the 3rd engine that was installed by the original owner - he drove fast and loved to show off.  

We co-owned the car for 10 years with a friend.  He would never get off his ass to work on it and we got tired of it laying around.  To prevent any hard feelings we bought out friend's investment & sold the car.  

I read the listing quickly - did it mention the skid plates & 2 speed rear end?   ;D
