1966 Cadillac Fleetwood


 Models in this range were characterized by traditional standard equipment additions and by emblems containing a Cadillac shield encircled by a laurel wreath, which appeared on the hood and center of the deck. Fleetwood designations, in block letters, were also found at the right-hand side of the deck. The Brougham had the wreath-style medallions on the roof pillar, along with Tiffany scripts in the same location to identify this extra-rich model.

 Fleetwood exterior trim and Fleetwood interior appointments enriched the cars in Cadillac's high-dollar lineup. The first major restyling, since 1959, was seen on these models, as well as perimeter type frames. The new look brought the appearance of the big sedan and the limousine up to date, so that it matched the visual impression of other Cadillac lines. A big jump in sales for both regular production models, but not the commercial chassis, was the result.
