I love this car


Had to replace water pump.

Master Cylinder and Brake Booster went out.

Trunk leaks and is rusted badly, but no holes.

General Comments:

The interior is in near perfect condition after sitting up for 15 years.

Engine sound drowns out exhaust unlike new cars, but is very quiet when idle.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

I had a 1974 Fleetwood Brougham! It was an old funeral service shuttle car! I loved it! Drove like a dream! Black with black cloth interior! Love those carpeted footrests in the back.
