I admit it: I’m suffering from a silly infatuation with Broughamness. Every American car manufacturer (and a few Japanese ones) slapped Brougham emblems on a wide variety of vehicles during the Brougham Era, which we’ll call 1968 through 1992, and the last hurrah for Detroit Broughams was the car that I found in a Denver self-serve wrecking yard yesterday.
In 1987, Cadillac decided to remove the Fleetwood name from its big rear-wheel-drive ocean liners and simply dubbed the car the Cadillac Brougham.
At first glance, I thought I was looking at an early 1970s product here.
You wouldn’t have seen a Chevy 305 engine in a proper Early Malaise Era Cadillac, though.
I’m pretty sure this car has more marque emblems than any built before or since. I gave up counting after I got to 15.
