Used Car of the Day: 1992 Cadillac Brougham

used car of the day 1992 cadillac brougham

Your vinyl-top dreams have come true.


This 1992 Cadillac Brougham is a final-year car -- only 13,000 were made during the final model year. This six-seat sedan has had just two owners and has reportedly been maintained at only GM dealers. The seller says it has been garage-kept and has resided in only two states, Tennessee and Colorado, and has had little if any exposure to road salt.

The car has some D'Elegance features, such as a power trunk pull-down, visor vanity mirrors, and leather upholstery.

The car also has power front seats, power mirrors, digital gauges, and cruise control.

The mileage is high at over 200K, and there are still 10,000 of the 13,000 built left. So the car is rare but not that rare. That, along with the high mileage, helps keep the price on this all-original Caddy down -- as of yesterday $5,800 bucks would've gotten you the car.

There's another reason the car isn't commanding more money (though with eBay, bidding could drive the price higher) -- it does need some minor work. Some of the interior lighting needs to be replaced, the headliner has a section working its way loose, there's some minor exterior damage (looks like the car took a modest hit), the speedometer doesn't work, and the cup holders have a broken piece.

Cadillac collectors, take note.

    Beautiful cars. I’ve owned 6 or 7 of these. Currently I have a 91 with the 350 and a 92 with the 302. They both drive beautifully. The 92 has 48,000 miles. I wouldn’t trade them for any other vehicle.

    I started selling cars in Aug. 15th 1990, was married Sept 1st 1990, so I was able to use a 1988 Brougham for my Wedding Car. Land Yacht to the Extreme, lasargic with the 5.0L V8, but nothing like it on the road.


    Then came the Road Monster, near the same size, newer styling, 5.7L, and then the LT1. A Wagon to boot.


    70,000 Monsters sold in 1992 alone, and continued until 1996, when Arlington was switched to building Tahoes and Yukons for the exploding SUV Craze, which ended/slowed soon after due to Gas Prices.

  • MaintenanceCosts Now that they have an actually functional entry into this segment--the Corolla Cross--they can put this sorry creation out of its misery.
  • FreedMike The roads were closed down and the stunts were done by pros. All good by me.
  • MaintenanceCosts If you've ever been to Oxford you know that having everyone drive everywhere is not sustainable there. But this seems like a much worse way to manage the problem than straightforward congestion pricing. Congestion pricing lets people drive where they want, when they want, but reduces the incentive to take car trips at the margins.
  • Cprescott I remember seeing these unload at a local L/M dealer complete with the black plastic that covered the grill (for pre-delivery protection). I have always loved the formal look of this vintage with the upright, hard lines over the Mark IV's softer and shapeless look. Would love to have the money to take a decent condition one that didn't run and to convert it to EV so that greenies would have a fit of something so large being battery powered!
  • FreedMike They were actually selling these all this time?
