1966 Cadillac Fleetwood Brougham


Recommended Posts

Hi guys.

Sharing with you my very new conversion. I have made this 1966 Fleetwood Brougham out of a Jo-Han Coupe DeVille kit. The original kit was unpainted but fully built under thick layers of glue... It needed a refresh and a bit of love. Fleetwood's roofs are higher than DeVilles, so to get closer to the real car I created a new raised and elongated vinyl roof to receive the thin B and larger C pillars,  also created new rear vent windows, new doors and interior wood-ish panels, new seats and floor carpet, new lower body molding trims and chromes, hand sanded paint and clear coats, white walls etc...Hope some will like it!

Hi Jean-Philippe!

Wow, this is "factory" quality conversion work, bravo! In my view, this mid-sixty vintage is one of the most visually pleasing Caddy. You nailed it!

Salut Claude!

Mille merci pour tes compliments. It's really appreciated. Design in 66 was "again" a success for Cadillac those years , neat and elegant.

Next conversions to come, Sedan DeVille 1976 and Fleetwood Brougham Coupe 1983. Thanks again !
