I have seen D-12's and I have ridden in a Cadillac....Not sure they have anything other than an internal combustion engine in common!

I've driven 100s of Lincolns and dozens of Caddys back in the 60s. The Caddys were "mushy" to me but rode like on a cloud. The Linclons were comfortable but had more feel of the road and better handling. I doubt that the AC is anything close. Buyer beware.

Haha...I'm not sure of the comparison either, but the price sounds very cheap for a D-12...they are low in production #'s and very popular with AC collectors (as is the D-10).  If in good shape, I'd expect that to be north of $3000, at least.  There were varieties that are higher demand that others as well.

Never knew that Cadillac made a tractor, isn't a tractor made that rides like a car even the old Moline UDLX with the cab.

Johnny Cash had a Cadillac but I don't remember what year it was.

I always thought that a man that drove a Cadillac was trying to make it in the world....A man that drove a Lincoln had already made it! :poke:
