1967 Cadillac Fleetwood Seventy-FiveT
he most expensive 1967 Cadillac model was the Fleetwood Series 75 Limousine, with a price tag exceeding $10,570. A sedan and commercial chassis were also available on the Series 75 line, with production remaining low throughout the series. 2,333 examples of the commercial chassis were sold, 835 of the sedan, and 965 of the limousine. The commercial chassis rested on a longer 156-inch wheelbase, compared to the standard Seventy Five wheelbase platform of 149.8 inches, and was intended for commercial purposes such as ambulances and hearses.
Powering the Series 75 was from an overhead valve V8 engine with hydraulic valve lifters, Rochester Quadrajet four-barrel carburetor, five main bearings, and a 429 cubic-inch displacement. It developed 340 horsepower at 4600 RPM and was mated to a three-speed Turbo-Hydra-Matic gearbox. There was an Automatic Level Control system, 8.20 x 15 tires, air conditioning, and many of the standard amenities found on the DeVilles.
The Fleetwood Seventy-Five models were distinguished by a Fleetwood wreath and crest emblems located on the hood and the trunk, along with Fleetwood block letters on the right side of the deck lid. A horizontal body rub molding stretched the length of the vehicle, with the back featuring extra-long rear fenders.
The prior year, the Cadillac Series 75 received a new perimeter frame and was fully restyled for the first time since 1961, bringing the design in line with the other Cadillac lines. Updates for 1967 included a redesigned side panel contour, different carburetor, a revised engine valve train, new engine fan with clutch, and re-tuned body mounts.by Daniel Vaughan | Jun 2020
