Very, Very Fuzzy low res pictures and the description is super vague. You could probably get better pictures from a 1990's flip phone and the description is a couple of sandwiches shy of a picnic!
I will say if it is just an engine fire with burned wiring, rubber and plastic, and a scorched hood and no mechanical issues, that's pretty easy to get back in shape. 3 Harnesses, a few rubber and plastic pieces and let Maaco do a trick on the hood and some fresh paint and you are back in business. I know because that is exactly how I bought the Cherry Red 4 Window SDV you see below. The engine had caught fire from a busted or leaking fuel filter, and bought it for $500, installed wiring off the shelf, used a few cans of rattle can paint, and let Maaco do $150 job on the hood and that baby was ready to roll. It was actually a very fun car, since it was not completely stock with that Nissan Cherry Red Pearl Metallic paint, (originally Beacon Blue as I recall) and I could have fun with the engine and interior colors. Here's a couple pictures of that Caddy:


a very pretty car. Always wanted one for a daily driver.

I do occasional work on my friends 63 convertible. I get to drive it around, and I prefer the ride in my sedan. The convertible rides horrible. Body flex, bumps and shakes are terrible.It is just the fact that there is not steel roof holding the car together. The convertible is a solid car with new suspension too.

I'd jump on both of those cars in a heart beat. The 64 is an easy fix. Probably a carb fire, and possibly from a leaking choke heat tube.  Easy money on getting that one back together.

The 63 is still a good deal, but the right door fire wall structure is a concern. The door hinges could have bent it in.  Still fixable if it is damaged there.

The convertible could be a great buy but note it is an auction so the price is open To adjustment


I am surprised to here you are less than happy with the 63 convertible ride
Not sure whats up with the 63 --but my 64 convertible ( and my 62 convert ) shows none of the symtoms you explain above about the 63 convert
My cars ride is very smooth and tight as it could be with a true amazing Cadillac ride
No noticeable flex super smooth over bumps no rattles ever --etc
Not sure what your friends 63 suspension is about
Could the new replacement suspension be the problem ?
The cloud nine ride is very much a part of my own experience with the 64 convert
Just surprised by that note

Seat belt restoration

Posted by Michael Forte on March 6, 2018 at 12:00am 4 Comments

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…


Drive shaft Question

Posted by Christopher Belinda on February 26, 2018 at 12:45pm 3 Comments

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…


Air Suspension - How to Choose and Install

Posted by Michael Forte on February 19, 2018 at 10:00pm 15 Comments

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.

I purchased my car in August of…
