Description

Here it is!
Enveloped in History and One of the Rarest Cars on the Planet!
A Factory 1969 Cadillac Fleetwood Hardtop 9 Passenger Station Wagon with Sunroof and Luggage Rack
472 c.i. 375 h.p. @ 4400 rpm 10.5 to 1 Compression Ratio 525 Torque ft. lbs. @ 3300 rpm
THM-400 3 spd. Trans. Rochester Quadra-Jet 4V Carb.
19'2" Over-All Length 130" w.b. 5200 lb. Gross Vehicle Weight, $10,961 MSRP in 1969
With only 14 manufactured in 1969 it's said that only 6 still exist in the world today! Body by Fisher and Conversion by Custom Craft Division of Automobile Specialty, Detroit, Michigan. Other wagons were owned by Supreme Court Judges, Country Singers, Dean Martin and Jeff Dennis to name the few
Jeff Dennis a Real Estate Developer and Founder of the R-Ranches of California purchased this "First and Favorite" of many Cadillacs for his Personal and Business Collection. Besides this 1969 Fleetwood Wagon he also owned a 1972 Fleetwood Wagon and a 1976 Fleetwood Wagon and several Eldorado Convertibles, this 1969 Station Wagon is the only Hardtop and the last cadillac from that collection. These vehicles were all purchased by Mr. Dennis "brand new" for his personal use while on the Ranches and as Courtesy Cars to accommodate his prospective and current customers thus the Low Mileage on this Classic, they pretty much just stayed at home and on the range!
In 1969 several Cadillac Fleetwood Wagons served as Indianapolis 500 Courtesy Cars to shuttle the V.I.P's of the Speedway, Racing Team Big Shots, Drivers, Team Members etc. to and from the Track, Hotels and Airports. It's been stated that up to 6 vehicles were in service and although the odds are good that this may one of those vehicles we have not as of yet been able to certify or document that. The reason for bringing this up is that there is a "Commemorative Plaque of Appreciation" mounted on the dash. With an Offical Seal of the Indianopolis Motor Speedway, saying "in Appreciation of Courtesty Service 1969". We have been trying and still are in touch with the Indy 500 museum and searching the internet to get this documented or at least a picture of it in service, Mr. Dennis passed away so as of this writing all we have is the plaque on the dash.
: FYI Mario Andretti in his Hawk III / Ford won that race over Dan Gurney with an average speed of 156.867 mph and paid $206.727 in winnings for his Victory
After spending most of it's traveling life in the state of California as a Courtesy Car for the R-Ranches it was taken out of service and stored back in 2001. Resting peacefully at one of the R-Ranches the R-Wild Horse Ranch in Redding, CA. Then around 2010 brought to Smith River, CA. to the home of Bill Dennis recently retired Drift Boat owner, Outfitter, Avid Fisherman and one of Jeff and Shirley Dennis' four children. There it has sat in storage, again peacefully resting in his garage until this July (2014). Bill contacted me to resurrect this last remaining Classic Wagon and get it ready For Sale. Stating he wanted the car to be driven and appreciated rather than just sitting in storage, he wishes he had the time to dedicate to this Rare One Owner Family Vehicle but recently admitted he just does not. Thus this "Once in a Lifetime Chance" your only chance to own and conduct the restoration of this Classic Historical American Road Ruling Timepiece!
Why me, well Bill and I grew up together since back in the 50's and Bill knows of my Expertise and Experience with Classic Cadillacs, Performance Hot Rods and Show Cars. Having recently retired myself from Vic Hubbard Performance Auto Supply a World renown Speed and Marine shop and parts supplier since 1949, where I managed the Wholesale Division for the last 20 years. I know Hot Rods and I know Classics!
