I see it's got the "4WD Appearance Package" from installing the wrong springs which is typical... ::)

Pimp grille and Vogues would be gone in 15 minutes flat were it up to me but otherwise appears nice. Waxberry Yellow leather wouldn't be my first choice with white exterior, but again that is subjective.

Not a fan of the grill, wheels and tires and while it looks nice. I would say at 66K miles seems the price is a bit high. But everything is expensive in NJ.

Also AC and antenna is not working. Try 7-8K. But it better look as good in person as the photos or not worth that.

Couple other items I noticed: Front turn signal lenses are from an 84/85 RWD DeVille/Brougham ('81 should be amber without winged crest), tired chrome on rear bumper, small corner trim pieces missing from rear fillers (no surprise there), decklid "Cadillac" script is circa mid/late '90s which is in the wrong location, wreaths added around door lock cylinders, cracked upper dash pad and worn driver's seat.

Forum member here just purchased an exceptional original '81 CdV from the original owner with mileage in the mid 40s for less than half the asking price for this example with far fewer issues than this one shows.

After Eric pointed out those other issues, the car is not worth what I stated above since we have all seen lower mileage, nicer cars for a lot less.

AC not working is a non starter...could be a minor electronic element, or could be a major issue.  I'm always impressed when the owner is openly honest about what does not work. If the evaporator is leaking, that a big issue.  I, for ONE, like Vogues... they provide a terrific ride on a Cadillac of this era, and, I like the aesthetic.  It's an impressive car, but will need some additional dollars to get it back to complete functionality.   Thanks for posting.  James
