David, from my references, here is what I have…
1970 was the last year two Sixty Specials were offered. The “base” Fleetwood Sixty Special Sedan was dropped at the end of the 1970 model run. The more luxurious Fleetwood Brougham took enough sales that they “combined” the two, so for 1971, it was a Fleetwood Sixty Special Brougham.

1971 model year saw the 133 inch wheelbase Fleetwood Sixty Special Brougham introduced.

1972 the Fleetwood Sixty Special Brougham entered its second year as a single model.

1973 was the first time in 34 years that there was no Sixty Special, as such, in the Fleetwood lineup. The car was now the Fleetwood Brougham.

1974 The Fleetwood Brougham had two option packages this year, the “Brougham d’ Elegance” and the “Fleetwood Talisman”.

1975 Same as 1974.
1976 Same as 1975.

1977 Downsized, the Fleetwood Brougham only had the “Brougham d’ Elegance” option package. The “Fleetwood Talisman” was discontinued.

1978 Fleetwood Brougham continued.
1979 Same as 1978.
1980 Same as 1979, and the Fleetwood Brougham Coupe was introduced.
1981 Same as 1980.
1982 Same as 1981.
1983 Same as above.
1984 Same as above.
1985 Same as above
1986 Same as above

1987 The Fleetwood Brougham remained the same, and a Fleetwood Sixty Special was introduced by adding a 5 inch wheelbase extension to the DeVille D’Elegance.

1988 Both models exist as separate body styles, the Fleetwood Sixty Special Sedan and the Brougham Sedan.

1989 Same as above.
1990 Same as above.

1991 models included the Fleetweood Brougham, the shorter Sixty Special and a new Fleetwood Sedan, based on the deVille body.

1992 Same as above.
1993 Same as above.

1994 This year, there was a base “Fleetwood Sedan” and a Brougham package. No Sixty Special.
1995 & 1996 Same as above. After 1996, there was no Fleetwood Brougham or Sixty Special.
