It's my first time posting a question.  I want to add seat belts front and rear to my 64 convertible. Seems like all suppliers have them in 60 or 74 inch lengths. Most passengers are of average typical size and I did the rope measure test and 60 inch belts seem the way to go. Does anyone know what the original length that was produced when new. Any and all thoughts are welcomed.

Thanks John Boening

At the top of the home page see a group of headings.  Click on the Help button.   All help topics are arranged in alphabetical order.  Scroll down to seat belts sections.  I believe you will find a lot of your questions answered there.

Thank you Gene,

I am just starting to use 63/64 and appreciate the help navigating the site. Saw lots of other info there too. Now can anyone help me rotate my picture or should I delete and repost it. Newbies, geez

John, On your profile picture you can re-crop but do not see any rotate editing available so you need to rotate it upright with software on the device it resides then reupload. Once you have it upright just click on Settings and you will see the link to upload a new profile picture.


You can flip an image (on your "My Page" only) using the advanced setting on the "My Page" tab.    Go to "My Page", and just below your profile pic, click "customize"

Then,  on the Design Page, click "Advanced" on the top left

Then, paste "#xg_themebody #xg img{transform: rotate(180deg);}" at the bottom of that window.  That will rotate your main image 180 degrees.  When you're done, it should look like this (on a windows 10 desktop):

Finally, click Publish at the bottom right, and your profile pic will be flipped (mine is now).   Note that it only flips the picture on your page, so chat thumbnails and the actual image if you click on it will render as you posted it.  nonetheless, it will show upright -part- of the time.   Like mine, for example:

64 Recirc/Fresh Air Door Actuator replaced; FROM THE INSIDE.

Posted by Norman Silverman on February 4, 2019 at 11:21pm 8 Comments

I am happy to report that I have successfully replaced the Fresh Air/Recirc door actuator that is located on the blower box-and have done so without having to remove the blower box. I did it by taking out the glove box and attacking it from the back.  It took several days, LOTS of patience and some band-aids, but it is done. THE most difficult part -BY FAR- is to remove and then replace the screw that sits on the actuator arm, connecting it to the fresh…

Where do the flashers go in my 64 Deville Convert.  I'm thinking that's why both turn signals stopped working.

Source for Motor mounts and Trans mounts 1964 SDV

Posted by Norman Silverman on January 9, 2019 at 4:23pm 4 Comments


Where is the best place to purchase good quality motor mounts/trans mounts for my 1964 SDV? I see that Rock Auto has them for $8 and change, and others for $24 and change. Big difference. Is there a better place to buy them from?
