1977 Cadillac Fleetwood Limousine
Chassis no. 6F23S7Q254636
The stretched version was constructed on a monstrous 3,658mm wheelbase, which made for an overall length of slightly over 6.1 metres.

Previously registered in the UK, this imposing Fleetwood limousine was purchased new by the Al Fayed family, formerly owners of Harrods, and was in their ownership or control until 2012. The VIN number indicates that it was built in Detroit and fitted with the 425ci (7.0-litre) V8 engine. Originally used in France, the Cadillac was first registered in the UK in 1994 when it was used by Harrods Aviation to transfer passengers from the airport terminal to their private jets, hence the low mileage of 6,500. The current vendor purchased the Cadillac from Bonhams' sale at the RAF Museum, Hendon in April 2012. Since then the car has been re-commissioned, including a full service with all oils, fluids and filters changed, greasing, etc and many details sorted (corner-lights, indicators, heating, etc). Now the car is ready to be enjoyed for family picnics or a long-distance holiday cruise with one's friends.

Antérieurement immatriculée 'SUC 199R' au Royaume-Uni, cette imposante limousine Fleetwood, acquise neuve par la famille Al Fayed, anciennement propriétaire du magasin Harrods, a été leur propriété ou sous leur contrôle jusqu'en 2012. Le n° de série indique qu'elle a été construite à Detroit et munie d'un moteur V8 de 7 litres. Utilisée initialement en France, la Cadillac a été immatriculée pour la première fois au Royaume-Uni en 1994 pour être utilisée par Harrods Aviation pour le transfert de passagers entre le terminal de l'aéroport et les jets privés, d'où le faible kilométrage affiché : 10,400 km environ. Le vendeur actuel a acheté la Cadillac à la vente Bonhams au RAF Museum, à Hendon, le 12 avril 2012. Depuis, la voiture a fait l'objet d'une remise à niveau avec un entretien complet - changement de l'huile, des fluides et des filtres, graissage, etc, - et élimination de quelques défauts de fonctionnement (feux de gabarit, clignotants, chauffage, etc). La voiture est désormais prête à assurer les sorties familiales comme les voyages de vacances à longue distance.
