1991 Cadillac Brougham. 5.7 Liter, Triple Black, Astro Roof. Those that follow my Broughams, know that the 90-92 5.7 Liter cars represent the best of the Brougham era.
This body style ran from 1980-1992 retaining a classic styling that will never be seen again on any car produced. These cars were the end of an era, and the 90-92 brings that to a close with the best examples. The 90-92 was built in the DFW Metroplex at the Arlington plant (RPO-ARL). Something we take pride in this area with. The Arlington plant turned out a very nice fit and finish compared to the models built in Detroit. Side by side, a late 89 to 92 will embarrass say a mid 80s example in this department. Still not Lexus fit and finish, but a huge gap was put between the Detroit examples of previous years to the ARL years. The 90-92 also is what is called the "euro" styled car with the large high quality single glass headlamp and the lower cladding. At first this was considered not as attractive as the 80-89, but looking back now, I would say the 90-92 has the looks over the 80-89 too. The most redeeming credit to the 90-92 is the optional 5.7 liter engine. If it had not been for this motor, all history would give us is the 80 and 81 with a good engine. The 5.7 Liter engine, even though rated only a little higher than the base 5.0 engine, is nothing in comparison. It has at least 50 more usable HP and even more torque than that over the 5.0. It was underrated. The 5.7 liter engine goes way deeper than the motor. The trans is the HD/Police version of the 700R4. The Diff is the large "Corporate 8.5" vs the little, (no business in a big car) 7.5 in the 5.0 cars, the suspension is different, the cooling system is different and there are even more things that you got for the small price of the 5.7 liter option. What came with the 5.7 liter option that was not desirable is the "GAS GUZZLER" tax that was imposed on the 5.7 optioned cars. GM made the 5.7 liter option very cost effective compared to the substantial differences with the 5.7 vs the 5.0, to help offset the 1500 whack the govt. added on the the price just for the luxury of having a car with some good power. Because of that, the majority of the 90-92 are 5.0 liter cars, making them really not a whole lot different than the 86-89 versions other than in looks. However, the 5.7 liter versions are nothing the same offering something that they alone had in this body style car; Great power, fun driving characteristics and heavy duty long lasting hardware! It is hard to find a low mile 5.7 car unless it was slated to be a collector the day it was bought.
As mentioned, 3X black, 5.7 with the rare and highly desired Astro Roof. No it is not a DeElegance. Oh well, keep looking, one of those is around the corner with me, but keep looking for a better one that this car.... probably not going to happen in one optioned like this example. Not only is this car as nice as you see it, but it is also a CLC known collector car since new and has won many awards at major events. The car is a high level #1 car, detailed beyond even one that is near 0 miles. This is actually a 27K mile car. Of course 100% original everything, tires and all (power antenna of course replaced), just a high level kept car that was lightly driven just to show and a collector. This car was loved since new and shows in every manner. It represents the best of the examples I have ever had, even compared to those that have under 1000 miles. It wears my 1-CAD plate for a reason. Having the old 60s, the 66 and some really nice Eldorado Convertibles is an amazing thing for me, having many brand new Cadillacs with the window sticker still on them that cannot be argued as perfect is even better... BUT this is my personal favorite Cadillac here. It is as good as new, yet I can drive it some. This is as close to perfection as I have ever got that actually drives on a road and still a normal car. Do I want to sell this one?? Probably not any time soon... but I can be talked out of anything when I find another car I like too!

Huge Tilting and slide back Astro Roof. Only the 89-92 built at ARL could have had this type. So few did. 80-88 had slide back only.
Stunning car in every manner.
My #1 Cadillac here.
Original Royal Seal Tires on factory wires.
See the large handling package 5.7 Liter sway bar hanging down. This is a stout car.
