I have a 1963 Sedan Deville and am trying to bring the interior to its former glory.

My car interior is 'Sandalwood and I need a paint for the lighter colour on the dashboard. Can anyone suggest a decent match?

Thanks!

Any color can be matched by putting it under a computer
Try an auto paint supplier
They can put it in a spray can or quart can

Enjoy

Assuming your 63 SDV Trim code (see Body Plate on top LH of Cowl) is 44, your Sandalwood metal dash is the same color as the exterior Bahama Sand. My car has the Sandalwood Interior and ordered the interior paint from TCP Global and it was almost a perfect match. I took individual panels off and had my painter spray them and it matched it very close to the rest of the dash.

So, here is their link: http://www.tcpglobal.com/  

1st, go to their Auto Color Library at  http://www.autocolorlibrary.com/     

Enter  your model  year and Cadillac to pull up the Auto Color Library and charts for your particular Cadillac.

Fill in for 1963 Cadillac and see Tech Sheets at bottom and select Acrylic Enamel, enter Light Sandalwood for color, 44 for Chip Formula Number, and 22129 for Manufacturer Paint Code.  

This should be a direct link to the fill in page:

http://www.autocolorlibrary.com/aclchip.aspx?image=1963-Cadillac-pg...

Here is an example of the fill in information if I were ordering this paint ... again!

Here is a picture of the TCB Global interior Light Sandalwood Paint with the specs on the can:

Thanks for the help. The trim code on my VIN plate is 54, does that affect the colour?

Also, I'm in the UK, which makes things a little more awkward :)

James. No 54 is still Sandalwood, just with the Leather Option. If you click on the Tech Sheet in lower left of the link you will see they both decode to 22129.  You can enter either 44 or 54 and 22129 and will end up with the same color. Here is a direct link to the tech sheet: http://images.tcpglobal.com/chips/1963-Cadillac-pg02.jpg

I added the following link to this thread to our Help Page as I often get email asking for a source for interior paints:

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 2 Comments

Hi.

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?

Thanks

Fuel loss in Carburetor

Posted by Ian Osborne on December 29, 2018 at 11:24pm 16 Comments

Lately if I haven't started my '63 in four or five days it seems that the carburetor has gone dry. The starter cranks for an extended period of time and the engine doesn't come close to firing. I have resorted to pouring a little fuel into the carb to save the starter and battery. This gets it started and it runs fine. It also starts fine after sitting a short while - a couple hours or so.

The fuel pump is new and there is always fuel in the glass bowl of the fuel filter. This, along…

I would like to upholster my caddy back to original.   Does anyone know where I can look at some pictures or photos.  Also, how hard is it to remove the dash?  thanks
