This car began as a factory production Cadillac Brougham with a separate body on frame, and with a wheelbase of 121.5 inches and an overall length of 221 inches. The car was cut in two and “stretched” by 55 inches into a custom, luxurious vehicle. This vehicle includes every available multi-media option, such as TV, VHS tape, intercom and, phone, and has a bar with crystal decanter and glasses. A similar Cadillac Brougham Grand Flagship was in the 1990 film Pretty Woman, featuring Julia Roberts and Richard Gere.
Moloney Coachbuilders was founded by Earle F. Moloney, who in 1967 grandfathered the stretch limousine industry with over 14,000 limousines which bear the Moloney name. Moloney was by far the largest of 12 limousine manufacturers. Rear facing seats and wide pillars were but a few of his innovations. By the mid-eighties, Moloney Coachbuilders employed 150 people at its 100,000-square-foot manufacturing facility in Schaumburg, Illinois. Moloney is also responsible for armored security vehicles which served 7 U.S. Presidents.
