Pedigree Motorcars is proud to offer this magnificent 1974 Cadillac Fleetwood Talisman. For Information and details contact Ken Baker at 561-866-1601.

Cadillac introduced a new model for the Fleetwood Brougham series in 1974—the Fleetwood Talisman. Quite simply, it was Cadillac's ultimate in individual luxury and comfort for four people. Personal comfort was guaranteed by providing only four seats inside to ensure each passenger the utmost in pampering.

The interior was upholstered in Medici Velour, an exclusive crushed velour fabric reserved for Cadillac's finest automobiles. The seats featured a shirred trim design inspired by fine European furniture. Padded upper door panel inserts, B-pillar trim, sail panels, and headliner were also covered in Medici Velour. Even the door pull assist straps featured Medici Velour inserts.

Running between the seats are center consoles—also covered in Medici Velour. The front console included an illuminated writing pad with pen and pencil, a lockable storage compartment for safekeeping of valuables, and an engraved nameplate featuring the owner's name.

The rear console features a handy storage bin, as well as a holder for a vanity mirror and other items that might be necessary while underway. Both consoles also serve as comforting center arm rests.

Thoughtful touches are everywhere: a reclining back on the front passenger seat, seat back pockets, assist straps, and deep-pile carpeting with matching carpeted mats. Outside, a padded elk grain vinyl roof, special wheel discs, standup wreath and crest on the hood, and color-matched "Fleetwood Talisman" script on the sail panels. The Fleetwood Talisman featured 40/40 split front seats with a center console. A separate rear console was provided for rear seat passengers, who also enjoyed carpeted foot rests, seat back pockets, assist straps, and individual reading lights.

Additional refinements exclusive to the Talisman are sculpted laurel wreath moldings to accent the door and instrument panels, and "Fleetwood Talisman" script on the instrument panel.

1974 is the only year of the four place seating in the Talisman and only 1898 were built.

No expense was spared on getting the special Cadillac ready for sale. This car drives like an absolute dream and everything in it perform's as it should. Over $7,000 was spent to ensure its safety, reliability, and enjoyment for its new owner.

Visually this car is absolutely striking. It was ordered without the vinyl roof and it gives it a very sleek and streamlined effect. The Fleetwood Talisman script and opera lamps are still intact. Although the paint is beautiful, there are some weak spots. From 10 feet away you cannot tell, but it is not flawless. The chrome is beautiful and free of any pitting and the car is completely rust free.

Inside, this car is like a time capsule. There is no warping or cracking on the dash, the steering wheel is in beautiful condition, there is no cracking anywhere on the door panels. The Medici velour is in beautiful condition throughout the interior. There is no rips, tears, or indications of where anywhere inside this Cadillac. Both the front and rear consuls are in beautiful condition. As expected, the headliner is perfect as is the carpeting and footrests.

This is very rare Cadillac will be a treat for anybody who drives and rides in it. Because it has new modern radial tires, it is smooth, stable, and a delight to drive. It will be a proud addition to any collection or to any Cadillac enthusiast.

At Pedigree Motorcars we show cars by appointment only. To arrange your private showing of this Cadillac Fleetwood Talisman contact Ken Baker at 561-866-1601.
