The American Flag Painted Cadillac Limousine is born for the Fourth of July and all other parades. There’s a car being auctioned on eBay that may make you stand up and salute. And you can do it while sitting in the car.
It’s a convertible Cadillac limousine gloriously decked out in the Stars and Stripes.
“Have you wanted to be more popular than George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, Teddy Roosevelt, General Patton, or Nicholas Cage?” That’s the question being asked in the ad, though it comes across more like a challenge.
The seller, Ben, tells The Motor Masters that his family has collected Cadillacs for many years and has had several 1960s models they use in parades. When they bought this limo, it needed a new vinyl top so they decided to just chop it off. After using it for a few months, they decided to paint it like Old Glory, because the stripes would make it look even longer.
The 1987 Cadillac Brougham doesn’t have windows or a convertible roof, but it does have a potective roll bar and six seats. It’s powered by a carbureted 5.0-liter V8 that runs (as long as you give it time to warm up) and has over 81,000 miles on the odometer. How many more miles? There’s no way to tell for sure, because the odometer is broken.
“If you drive this Caddy past Mount Rushmore you’d have the four freedom founders cranking their necks and turning their heads to take a peak [sp],” the ad says in a jokingly manner, but the attention it gets is the real deal. Ben said he got a chance to buy it the first day he had it on the road and that he can’t go anywhere without people waving at him and filming it.
Collector car website BarnFinds.com has already nominated the Caddy for its “eBay Listing of 2019 award,” which didn’t exist before it posted about this car. If you’re interested in putting your money where your patriotism is and buy The American Flag Painted Cadillac Limousine, the car is located near Salt Lake City and the eBay auction ends Monday night at 8PM MST.Auto News, Blog
