Officially known as the Fleetwood 75 Formal Limousine, a.k.a. the Parlor Car. I had a post in the forum on this somewhere.

Plus, if I'm not mistaken, it's a 1968.

UPDATE: Here it is:

How on earth did you come up with such a silly name? I've been a member of the Cadillac-LaSalle Club for decades, I know people who have used Series 75s as daily drivers, and I have never heard that term before. Also when you Google it; you're literally the only person who's ever used it: Link to "www.google.com"

You people want to make up goofy names go ahead, but if it's not an official term it shouldn't be a part of the site.

^ I agree it should not be listed as it is not the Official Cadillac name, which is what mrcadillac said in the post I quoted ;)

Back to pre-war days? Was this name applied to late 60s cars anywhere?

Anyway, it sound like we going to use various nicknames in additional info.

Agree "Parlor Car" was not Cadillac terminology.
Deleting that part.

BTW, is it actual limousine? I mean, with separated compartments.

^Probably; I'm pretty sure the Laundau roof option was only available on the Limos.

Somename, before the internet, let alone Google, the name was used to describe formal limousines with the third windows blocked off such as this one. You'd find them in classified ads and car trader magazines, and such.

^No it wasn't. I can find the definitions of colloquial phrases and ethnic slurs nobody has used in 150 years with Google and you expect me to believe that there is no record because of its age. There's plenty of old sales literature dating to the horseless carriage days on the internet and there is no record of the term being used. Back in the 20s and 30s formal limousines with the windows closed off were called Cabriolets, a rather redundant term when one stops to consider that limousine means cloak. And on top of everything, the notion that the term would be used in the days when every one knew that a parlor-car was an elaborate railroad passenger car is ridiculous.

^ You clearly haven't seen any of the old car trader magazines that I've read. I still have some of them in storage somewhere, and if not I have pages of them cut from those magazines.
