I have a contact that is trying to track down a 1963 Cadillac Coupe de Ville with VIN # 63J037220 that was owned by her father (huge sentimental value). The car was sold to a man in Pompano Beach, FL about 10 years ago, who passed away last year. She has confirmed with Florida DMV that the car was never retitled and still shows in her father's name. She has tried to track down the car's history from the deceased man's family, friends, etc and no one seems to have any knowledge of the car. She said the car was running poorly when her dad sold it, and would have been a good candidate for a parts donor or perhaps a full restoration.  From our phone conversation I believe she said it was sold for $1600. She has checked Car Fax, and other national auto entities, and even hired a private investigator and came up empty and as a last ditch effort is reaching out to the Cadillac Community.

I told her, given the cars condition (Fair/#4) and the fact 31,749 1963 Coupe de Villes were produced there is a good chance it was parted out. I went on to tell her I part cars out and would check my list but most of mine came from NC area with only a few from FL.  I told her there is a chance the buyer from 10 years ago sold it, and it was just never retitled and is sitting in someones garage or perhaps out back, or again could have been parted out. I also told her if it went to another state and was retitled they should have done a national title search and report back to FL if someone tried to title it but know that states are different in how they handle out of state cars, especially older ones where most of the DMV don't even know where to look for a VIN #.

So, the young lady has done her homework, and I am asking any of my 1963 Cadillac Contacts if you know what happened to the 1963 Cadillac with VIN # 63J037220? If you do email me at jasonedge@nc.rr.com and will relay the info to the contact.

thanks!  Jason.

She’s looking for her dads car.
Yes i see that and respect what shes doing. I have my dads last car a 2010 Lincoln TC. Ill never give it up.

The Blue convert on the left was my Dads car and I was there when he bought it off the showroom floor and constantly kept it fresh for the joy of owning such a gem (  7 other 62-64 ‘s in collection all fresh and registered )

My Dad was one of the sharpest dressed  ( NY garment center ) quick minded good looking ( looked like Errold Flin the movie star ) I had the pleasure of being my Dad 

Sooooo I do understand why dads car could be so very important to have —Amen !

Enjoy

Bad Guage?

Posted by Karl Schwarz on August 26, 2020 at 3:08pm 6 Comments

So I am troubleshooting my fuel gauge issue. I bought a new sender and tested it. It  it goes from 1-ohm (empty) to 35-ohm (full). When I test it (outside the tank), when the float is in the up (full) position it only moves the gauge to about 1/2 full. When at the bottom (empty) position the gauge shows empty. This is the same issue I have when I fill and then use the gas in the tank - the gauge never reads ore than half full. Based on what I've read on this thread it would seem like the…
