Sorry meant to post this in General area not for sale section.

Looking at a car for sale at the moment and never seen one this colour before. The interior looks original ( crest still on armrest ) but again never seen this colour. I dont have vin or body plate number as yet. Headliner looks a bit discoloured, is that an easy replacement? and on the panel where light is. Trim above driver side bumper next to headlight missing too...

Seller says 77k miles and looks to be in good condition.

Any thoughts on it please?

Exterior color # 52, Burgundy metallic.   First year offered, correct

interior code # 79 Burgundy Broadcloth, with wreath embroidered, correct

headliner can be replaced by a good upholstery shop.

missing cornering light on drivers side can be replaced by a donor car of any model - interchangeable, not unique to Fleetwoods.

This car looks nice. I have seen similar ones, up close and personal, and they are very elegant.

Thank you guys for that, I have a little more info on the car and more pics to add. Will get more details and pics about car later in the week. It's had a bit of work done to get it running well inc brake work, engine work inc water pump replacement. It says air con needs filled but no idea if its a new system or the original. I dont mind air con not getting cold as here its never that hot !!! I believe everything is working and the missing trim item is available just never been fitted. Was bought in California  :)

Hoping to arrange a viewing, but I'm off to Lithuania next week with another trip to Sweden soon too, so hard to get it organised.

Comments welcome
