West Coast Classics are proud to present an absolutely exceptional and stunning example of this original southern California 1991 Cadillac Brougham d'Elegance sedan with only 9,900 (yes, nine thousand nine hundred!) original miles!
Purchased and always exclusively serviced since new by it's two San Diego, southern California, owners at 'Marvin K. Brown Cadillac' of San Diego, California. The car was purchased from the same dealership as its original owners in July 2015 with 7,873 original miles by only its second owner and the car continued to be serviced at the same dealership.
Always garaged and with no accidents and with absolutely no rust whatsoever, for all intents and purposes a still brand new car! Owned and driven by only two obviously very careful and mature drivers since new - never abused - babied all the way!
The original 'Maple Red over Silver Frost' factory paint is in exceptional condition with no blemishes and the matching 'Dark Maple Red' leather seats and interior is also in quite flawless condition throughout with no signs of wear. Every option is working as it should including the ice-cold A/C.
This particular model must be seen and driven to be fully appreciated - the car drives as good as it looks with Cadillac's famous smooth and luxurious ride - no shakes or rattles and the considerable power of it's 5.7 litre V8 engine purring almost imperceptibly under the hood! The engine is extremely strong and responsive with no oil leaks, the transmission shifts smoothly through the gears and the temperature always remains cool. Drives like a new car - you could never tell the difference!
The 1991 Brougham featured what Cadillac proclaimed as "contemporary yet classic exterior and interior restyling." This view was justified by a major revamping of the long-lived Brougham package. Three new colors (Brownstone, Maple Red and Light Antelope) were introduced. A total of 12 colors were offered. A new wide lower body-side colored accent molding was standard. The moldings were Silver Frost or Light Antelope depending on exterior paint color. Three exterior colors could be ordered with matching color accent moldings. Silver Frost and Light Antelope were available only as monotone.
The Brougham's front end appearance was revised by the use of halogen composite headlamps, new end caps, rub strip and bumper filler plus a new windshield pillar pad and drip molding. In profile a number of restyling efforts were evident. A new combination turn signal/parking/side marker lamp was used. The opera lamp was moved forward and a new bright chrome center pillar was used. New front and rear body-color door edge guards were standard as were new colored wide lower accent moldings. At the rear a new deck lid molding for the license plate opening was found. A new formal padded full vinyl roof was standard.
Significant changes took place in the Brougham's interior. Two new colors for the Primavera cloth upholstery, Antelope and Dark Maple Red, were introduced. A total of four colors were offered. The same colors were added to the standard Brougham's grain-leather interior, making for a total availability of seven colors. Joining Antelope and Dark Maple Red was black for the d'Elegance Brougham's Sierra grain leather interior, which was also available in three other colors. Revisions to the Brougham's seating areas consisted of the replacement of Royal Prima with Primavera cloth, outboard front seat cushions contoured on the standard Brougham for increased lateral support, a new standard front seat center armrest with storage compartment, and change in the d'Elegance seat to a 55/45 configuration. Carpeted rubber-backed floor mats with retention needles were now used. New standard automatic safety belts for driver and right front passenger were installed. A black walnut burl trim was used for the instrument panel, doors and steering wheel horn pad. Both a power driver seat recliner and an electronic digital instrument panel were now standard. An improve electronic climate control system with three automatic and two manual settings was adopted. The standard AM/FM radio with a preset graphic equalizer, cassette tape player and signal seeking and scanner feature with digital display was also upgraded. Both a new compact disc player and an electrochromic inside rearview mirror were optional. Items previously optional that were made standard for 1991 were as follows: side and deck lid accent striping, rear window defogger and heated outside mirrors door edge guards, carpeted floor mats, front license mounting provisions and trunk mat.
The powerplant and chassis of the Brougham benefitted from the use of a new standard anti-lock braking system. A 5.7-liter V-8 with throttle body fuel injection was included with the coachbuilder package (which was also revised for 1990) and trailer towing packages. The 5.7 V-8 developed 175 horsepower, 295 lb.-ft. of torque and came with an 8.5 in. ring gear and 3.08:1 final drive ratio as well as a one-time Level Gas Guzzler tax!
In addition to the previously mentioned features of the Brougham d'Elegance, the special edition model, option code V4S, had a specific interior trim design including tufted multi-button seats, three overhead assist handles, six-way power passenger seat adjuster, illuminated driver and passenger visor vanity mirrors, rear sail pane reading lights, Twilight Sentinel, power trunk lid pull-down, and exterior/interior identification.
