Gateway Classic Cars of Dallas is excited to offer this one-of-a-kind 1986 Cadillac Fleetwood Brougham De Elegance complete with 400WHP 6L LS Swapped Drivetrain. This 1986 Cadillac Fleetwood Brougham De Elegance is finished in Desert Frost Firemist over Sandalwood leather upholstery and is powered by a 400 WHP 6.0L LS Based V8 paired with a four-speed automatic overdrive transmission. The car is said to have been registered in Texas since new and was acquired by the seller in 2021 after reportedly being stored for 18 years. Equipment includes a padded roof cover, wire wheel covers, Electronic Level Control, a d’Elegance-Fleetwood Brougham seating area, air conditioning, power seats with memory, and a Symphony Sound cassette player. Service under current ownership includes a full modern drivetrain shop. This Fleetwood Brougham is now offered with a window sticker, sales paperwork, an owner’s manual, a clean Carfax report, and a clean Texas title in the seller’s name.
This amazing build was conducted by a mechanical engineer that owns a custom LS Swap shop in Ft. Worth. In addition to the engine itself, the upgrades made included a Texas speed stage 2 cam and 4l60e level 2 reinforced transmission. We also upgraded to 4-wheel power stop disc brakes with ventilated rotors. Additional work was conducted on the exhaust with dual 3in with Magnaflow magnapack mufflers w/ e-cutout pipe kit and a switch installed on the dash to automatically open and close them. There is a Holley in-tank 420lph high-pressure fuel pump with EFI sending unit with a Holley sniper low rise sheet metal intake with 92mm throttle body. I also replaced the radiator with a Be Cool 4 core aluminum radiator w/trans cooler and dual electric fan kit and custom painted and refurbished 429 Cadillac valve covers and also paint on the engine block to match the vehicle paint. The rear axle has a rear Detroit tru-trac posi limited slip differential with Moser hardened axle shafts. As of the last test run and dyno-tuning the car has nearly 460hp with 410hp transferred to the rear axle.
The car is finished in Desert Frost Firemist Metallic and features a padded roof cover that extends to the rear pillars and window surround. Exterior features include chrome-finished bumpers and taillight surrounds, side moldings, pin-striping, and quadruple headlights. The seller states a ceramic coating has been applied to the finish. Factory steel wheels feature wire covers and are mounted with Vogue Tyre Custom Built Radial VII tires. Bilstein front shocks are said to have been installed in 2021, and the car was optioned with Electronic Level Control.
The car was optioned with a D’Elegance-Fleetwood Brougham leather seating area, trimmed in Sandalwood leather. Amenities include a Symphony Sound cassette player, automatic door locks, seat memory, cruise control, Twilight Sentinel automatic lights, and electronic climate control. The air-conditioning system is said to have been converted to utilize R134a refrigerant and was recharged in 2021, at which time the heater core was also replaced. The weatherstripping for both front doors was replaced, and the seller states a ceramic coating was applied to the leather and exterior paint. A two-spoke steering wheel with an aftermarket cover sits ahead of a horizontal 85-mph speedometer, and a fuel gauge is located in the center of the dash. The five-digit odometer shows 31.5k miles, approximately 2000 of which have been added by the seller.
The window sticker shows selected factory options along with a total price of $26,788. The Carfax report shows no accidents or other damage and lists history in Texas.
