"I hear ya, I still believe the lack of a B pillar allows for slightly more squeaks. I remember my 72 Cadillac SD having some minor squeaks around the window trim as well.
We'll see what happens. I think the best thing for me to do is lube all…"
"You can -silicone spray - any rubber surface that may be squeeking ,around the windows and doors
The lubrication should stop and dress thr rubber

"I am not implying that these cars are rattle boxes at all. What I am saying is it is inevitable that you can get rattles and squeaks with these cars if you have mostly original suspension components. If all you do is replace the tires and…"
"Rough riding has got to be one of those very subjective categories where one person's ultimate ride may be undesirable for others. I replaced all of my front end steering and suspension parts including ball joints, tie rods, idler arm,…"
"Big, powerful, comfortable and very stylish... you really cannot go wrong with a well maintained, good running 63 or 64! I was looking at the 64 Lincoln the other day and while the suicide doors where cool to me they looked Butt-Ugly,…"
"I would rank the Cadillacs of this error ,( and most year Caddys ) a very very powerful passenger cars for its time

"Very nice words Tony. Cadillac's back then seem to have the most powerful engines in the industry, even out doing some muscle cars!
I think the 64's had the best of both worlds due to the increase in power with the 429 and having the…"
