I just dragged a 64 Fleetwood home from a field in Texas and it has some options that are not on the ID tag. It has twilight sentinel, cruise control and a white painted top that are not noted on tag. Was Cadillac offering all these options at the dealer level? I guess the only was to know for sure would be to have the original sale receipt.

Ronnie,

 it looks like a really beautiful Fleetwood. Enjoy it in good health.

Back in the day ( I was a kid car fanatic in the 50's and 60's) dealer installed, but factory supplied options were sometimes provided by dealers before the car was delivered.  This could be done to save time if the customer was unwilling to wait for a factory order, which sometimes took 4-6 weeks. 

Unlike current practice where cars are typically available as version  "A" "B" or "C" each car was  custom ordered and had many different types of factory options to choose from. 

Best regards

Do enjoy that very handsome machine

These cars add a lot of luxury creature comforts ( the cloud nine ride -like no other )  -big time fun ( people magnet ) and  a sense of style to our lives like nothing else can 

Most fun with your clothes  on —LOL !

America’s best —in the years when —America built things with the mentality to last as long as is possible 

Those days are long gone but the products of those times are still around ——and you own one of them  !

Enjoy 

Thanks all, glad to add this Fleetwood to the fleet, it's a little rougher then it looks in the picture, it was sitting out for awhile. It will look good in the shop next to my white Fleetwood.

Hey Ronnie, I think I just got a stiffy. :-) LOL

What colour interior? A white Fleetwood with light blue trim followed our Fleetwood off the ass line..... highly unlikely that's it, but ya never know.

The good thing with white, is, in the correct lighting, they look as straight as an arrow. In the wrong lighting, not so much. Our Fleetwood rides with dents, dings and stone chips as badges of honour.

Now, before ya think I can't spell.... colour, honour and the likes, are spelt with a U down under.

Geez that car looks good.... pleased for you Ronnie.

It is white with light blue interior, build date of 1-9-64, it had a re-paint by previous owner in 2014 .

Not the sister car then..... ours was born on the March 25th 1964.

OH —two of them !!

Thats twice as GOOD 

Sweet white Fleetwood you have there 

Enjoy

Is there a separate Starter Relay, or does the Solenoid serve that purpose?

Posted by Norman Silverman on August 30, 2019 at 5:57pm 7 Comments

Hello All.

I will be replacing the starter solenoid tomorrow (actually my mechanic will do the work, I'll just supervise). In checking the FSM electrical schematic and chapter verbiage, I don't see anything that looks like (or is referred to as) a starter Relay. It seems the Starter Solenoid serves the function and there's no separate relay. Right or Wrong?

If wrong, where…

Starter Solenoid replacement-how difficult? Where to buy?

Posted by Norman Silverman on August 20, 2019 at 8:24pm 8 Comments

Hello All.

I believe the starter solenoid has gone bad in my 64 DeVille. When I turn the key, often all I get is a click, then if I try a few times again the starter turns perfectly. All battery cables are on tight and the battery is good. So, I believe this problem is the solenoid. Where do I buy the right solenoid and is it necessary to remove the starter in order to swap it out? …
