It's a 1971 Cadillac, possibly a Fleetwood 60 Special.

It's a pimped out '71, with typical grille cap and false landau bars on the roof sail panel. n front of it is a similarly pimped out Eldorado, also circa '71-72.

They all look like Les Dunham creations to me and I seem to recall that there was an article
about them in Hemmings years ago, which said all the custom Caddies in to Live and Let Die
were supplied by Dunham Coach.

Les Dunham seems to enjoy some sort of cult status among the 70s hip pimp wannabees. Lookee

Cadillacs from 1971-73 are basically the same car except details. Since the movie is from ´73 the car is most likely a ´73, possibly a ´71 or ´72.

Definately a 71 or 72, I'd lean towards 72, cant really see any lourvers in the trunk that the 71 had, Definately not a 73, I had an Uncle that had a 73, the the rear tailights were only one one top and the bottom was a rubber bumper guard. Just a note, this car is missing it fender skirts. Same for the Eldorado, probably a 71 or 72.

Definitely a 1971 per the turnlights in the bumper and taillight design.

It`s actually not half bad! A little "cartoon-ish", but a nice car. :)

It's a 1971. You can tell by the rear tail lights with the vertical chrome strip running through them. My dad had one back in the '70s.

It's DEFINITELY a '71, My Grandparents on my Dad's side had a dark green Fleetwood with a white top and a dark green leather interior that they bought new, In early '73 they traded it for a '73 Fleetwood Brougham D'Elegance that was dark brown with a white top and dark brown velour interior, It also had the standup Caddy wreath & crest emblem on the hood.

I think these 'period custom' cars are in themselves classics. You don't see many Dunham cars like this around any more (and he was from New Jersey, not New York, thank you!).

When I first saw this film in the cinema I thought this car was cool. I still do. The brownish colour was very typical of the day. I hate it now though! The idea of customising an already-expensive car is still done today-- with the Escalade. The removal of the fender skirts was to evoke the Eldorado. With a 472 mill and big radiator this car would make a great boulevard cruiser AND get out of its own way on the highway. If I could afford the fuel at 9 MPG I would have one today.
