"I agree with Tony that the Edelbrock is a wonderful carb and would work well with a Turbo-Hydramatic transmission (1964 DeVille models) which are vacuum assisted when shifting but a 1964 series 62 model will still have the TV rod to the Jetaway…"
"If you ever have a need for a new Edelbrock replacement carb You will always get the benefit of having a new fresh carb ( always a good thing ) but in addition the carb will have --a vacuum port on it --that will change your timing ( advance it…"
"I am using 93 octane with ethanol in my 64-429 I like my timing at 8 degrees ( i would run more if i could ) 8 degrees will give you a bit more low end torque to move these heavy cars

The CLC Carolina Region needed a Webmaster and Website and I stepped up to provide both the 1st of this year and have been steadily working on a new website. It is still a work in progress and have lots to add but just made it live yesterday.The new Carolina Region site is using a Ning 3.0 Platform, while we are still using the 2.0 platform.

During the process of a complete restoration (and color change) of my ‘63s interior during the winter of 2016, I replaced the aftermarket seatbelts that were in my car with restored original '64 buckles and retractors. I had a terrific experience with Ssnake-Oyl Products out of Tyler Texas, so I thought I share the info.
In my opinion, the '64 seat belt buckle with the Cadillac Crest is the coolest looking seat belt buckle ever put in a car. Apparently, they're not easy to find in…
Good Morning - I have read several, very informative posts on this site regarding the 63/64 drive shaft and am looking for a few recommendations. My Park Avenue is a relatively low mileage car (32,000); however, in an effort to make this a very reliable, long distance traveler I would like to ensure that this vital component has a clean bill of health. Normally, this would mean replacing all universal joints, greasing the slip yoke, and replacing the carrier bearing/mount. As you have…
What I enjoy most about old cars is that they can be restored to original condition, radically customized, or somewhere between those extremes, reflecting the owner's individual style. For my '63 Convertible, I want to achieve a mostly original look, with minor custom touches to make it clean, smooth, and low. This article is to share my experience in choosing and installing the suspension components to achieve a low stance and a comfortable ride.
