Considering I haven’t driven my “Hell Camino” in many months, it is time to have someone else enjoy her. She was constructed when new on a passenger car chassis rather than a commercial chassis. Known as a “Western Flower Car”. It was not designed to carry a casket. The stainless-steel bed is stationary. There is no tailgate that would open.
The car is finished in black though it was originally metallic blue when it left the factory. The paint is tired but no dents. The black vinyl top has shrunk and torn in places and should be replaced. The interior is blue leather. The leather is dry and has some splits in some seams.
The car is equipped with most Fleetwood options: 5.7-litre V-8 fuel-injected engine, 4-speed automatic overdrive transmission, rear-wheel drive, power steering, 6-way power seats with power recliners, electronic climate-control, power windows, anti-lock brakes, electronic level control, cruise control, tilt & telescope leather-wrapped steering wheel, digital instrument dash, front seat storage armrest, accent moldings, power antenna and dual heated remote power side mirrors.
Other options include Rolls Royce-style “Classic Cadillac” gold grill and true-spoke wire wheels. Another unique feature is the alternating flashing headlights and front & rear strobes. Within the past 1,000 miles, she has had a tune-up, brakes (including master cylinder and hoses) and new exhaust system. About 91,100 original miles.
