Autotrader Find: 6-Door Cadillac Fleetwood With 42,000 Miles

What are you supposed to do if you need 3-row seating to transport your family and friends, but you don’t want to buy an SUV or a minivan? I’ll tell you what you should do: You should buy this 1996 Cadillac Fleetwood with six doors and seating for nine.

No, this full-size Cadillac isn’t as unwieldy and annoying as a limousine. Instead, it’s just a regular ol’ luxury sedan that’s been stretched to become a slightly larger regular ol’ luxury sedan. Never mind the fact that this thing was already one of the largest cars on the market when it only had four doors … it’s even better with six! And it’s perfect for family duty! Just look at all that leg room! See the Cadillac Fleetwood models for sale near you

More importantly, this 6-door Fleetwood is affordable. Available at Specialty Car Company in rural North Wilkesboro, North Carolina, this Fleetwood is just $12,500 — and it’s traveled a mere 41,750 miles since new. And it’s a good thing you’ll save a lot of money over a new crossover or minivan, because this Fleetwood uses an ancient 260-horsepower 5.7-liter V8 with an even-more-ancient 4-speed automatic transmission. And I bet that extra row of seats doesn’t exactly help gas mileage.

But think of all the benefits! Your family rides in Cadillac style, you get a low-mileage luxury sedan, and your kids won’t be able to prevent each other from getting in and out by holding the door closed — because you no longer have one sliding door, or two sliding doors, or two regular doors, but SIX FREAKIN’ DOORS!

The Autotrader ad for this car even gives another wonderful possibility for its use. "WANNA MAKE MONEY AS AN UBER DRIVER?" it asks. Yes. Yes, you do. And a 20-year-old V8-powered stretched Cadillac is exactly how you do that. Find a Cadillac Fleetwood for sale

  1. I love this era of Fleetwoods. This would actually make an awesome Uber car, but don’t Uber cars have to be less than 10 years old? Also you would go absolutely broke from the fuel economy if you used this as a taxi.

  2. 6-door limos are usually used for funeral home duty, because the bereaved relatives don’t usually want to sit around facing each other, unlike wedding or prom guests. 

    Although I guess not having to talk to each other could be a good feature in a family car too. 
  3. Youtuber Roman Atwood just bought something very similar to this and did some crazy stunts with it. i would highly recommend checking it out!
