|FUEL: For 1971, all Cadillac engines have been designed to operate efficiently on the new no-lead or low-lead gasolines.
In addition to the lower exhaust emissions attainable with this engine/fuel combination, there are benefits in longer life for your spark plugs,
exhaust system ond other engine components. lf these no-lead, low-lead gasolines are not available,
any leaded regular grade gasoline with a Research Octane Number of 91 or higher may be used.|
|FUEL TANK CAPACITY: Approximotely 27 usable gallons.
Tank designed to avoid possibility of vapor or liquid fuel escaping into atmosphere.|
|PISTONS: Newly designed aluminum alloy, slipper-type.|
|CAMSHAFT: Designed with greater overlap between intake and exhaust valve timing
as an aid to reducing nitrous oxides in exhaust.|
|CARBURETOR: Quadrajet four-barrel downdraft with equalized manifold, mechanical fuel pump,
dry-type air filter and improved automatic choke.
Contains new purging system for utilization of stored fuel vapors and to minimize emissions to atmosphere.|
|LUBRICATION: Full-pressure. Full-flow oil filter.|
|ELECTRICAL SYSTEM: 12-volt, 15-plate battery. Side terminals on Eldorados. 42-amp. generator.
80-amp. on all Seventy-Fives. 63-amp. on all other air conditioned cars. Generator has integral regulator on Eldorado and Seventy- Fives.|
|TURBO HYDRA-MATIC: Fully automatic, torque-converter type with fixed stator.
Converter multiplies engine torque for increased driving thrust to drive wheels during acceleration in any gear (low, intermediate or high).|
|REAR AXLE: Ratio 2.93 to 1 (3.07 to 1 on Eldorado),
3.15 to 1 axle ratio is standard on Seventy-Five models. Available (except Eldorado) is the Controlled Differential,
which directs power to the rear wheel having better traction.|
|FRONT SUSPENSION: Integral steering knuckle for greater dependability and longer life.
Independent, helical-coil-type springs. Rubber-mounted strut rods and rubber bushings absorb impacts and isolate road noise. (Torsion bar suspension on Eldorado.)|
|REAR SUSPENSION: Four-link drive. Rear springs are helical-coil-type included on Eldorado in 1971.
New larger rubber bushings for quieter, softer ride.|
|BRAKES: Cadillac power brakes with self-adjusting feature; composite finned rear drums; disc front.
Split hydraulic master cylinder provides for independent operation of front and rear brakes.
New larger power booster and larger front brake cylinders for increased capacity.|
|PARKING BRAKE: True auxiliary brake ... will not lock in position with engine running and car in gear
... can be operated as a foot emergency brake while car is in motion. Automatically releases when transmission is placed in drive or reverse with engine running.|
|STEERING: Cadillac variable-ratio power steering with faster response ond higher capacity pump is standard equipment
(fixed-ratio on Seventy-Five models). Overall steering ratio of 16.6 to 1 (except 19.5 to 1 on Seventy-Five models and 16.3 to 1 on Eldorado).
38.5 degrees turning angle provides fast response and short turning diameter.|
|FRAME: Perimeter frame with boxed side rails. New front members afford added protection with increased energy absorption.|
|TIRES: Low-pressure, size L78 x 15, bias-belted, fiberglass, tubeless, on all models. Black sidewalls, standard; white sidewalls available.|
|CORNERING LIGHTS: On the side of front fenders, activated by directional signal lever when headlamp switch is on.
They project a beam of light from the side of the car, thus illuminating roadside and road signs for added convenience at night.|
|TREAD: Front 63.6", rear, 63.3" (Eldorado, 63.66" front, 63.59" rear).|
|WHEELBASE: 130" (Fleetwood Sixty Special Brougham, 133", Fleetwood Seventy-Five 151.5", Eldorado 126.3").|
|OVERALL LENGTH: 225.8" (Fleetwood Sixty Special Brougham 228.8", Fleetwood Seventy-Five, 247.3", Eldorado, 221.6").|
|ADDITIONAL BODY COLORS not shown on cars illustrated include: Cotillion White,
Grenoble Silver, Sable Black, Zodiac Blue, Brittany Blue, Cypress Green, Sylvan Green, Desert Beige, Clove, Cambridge Red,
Almond Firemist, and Primrose Firemist.|
|NOTE: Richly textured vinyl is provided in certain areas of leather-trimmed Fleetwood and DeVille models.|
