The ultimate north American gas eating road boat. We owned a 1970 with the 455 V8. It actually would get 20mpg in on the road but in town you don't want to know. 

Still like them and this one would make a nice driver but after setting 35 years I'm thinking this could easily turn into a money pit. A real shame.

What was the biggest car this year ? Caddy, Imperial or this ?

 

Back when a car's perceived worth was measured by

its size, a Cadillac would have a longer wheelbase, and

greater length, than less expensive G. M. makes.

The Cadillac Fleetwood for 1969 was 228.5" long;

the Cadillac deVille 225"; the Buick Electra such as this, 224".

 

My reference book (the "Standard Catalog") doesn't list

the length of the 1969 Imperial, but the virtually identical 1970

was 230" long.

 

Cars would gain a few inches in the 1970's.

Fossil, did your family ever measure the in-town gas mileage

of the Electra?

 

I had a 1973 Cadillac Eldorado convertible.  By then, emissions

regulations had cut into gas mileage.  Mine got only 6 m.p.g.

around town, and 10 on the highway, for a consistent average

of 8 m.p.g.!  That's terrible.  I read a 1973 review by Consumer Guide

and they received the same 8 m.p.g. average.

 

With my 1978 Lincoln Mark V, I have measured 14 m.p.g. on

the highway.  That's a notable 40% improvement over the 

Eldorado's 10!

Hi John:

   It comes to me that it got in the 10 to 12 mpg if driven conservatively. 70 was the last year of the high compression engines so it had around 375 hp. Two of my friends had them also, same year and we all would get the same mileage.  If you started pushing them the gas mileage was terrible.

I had heard that the later ones got very poor mileage and were low on power.
