Hi, does anybody have pair of lower window channels for a 63 coupe de ville hardtop, the ones I bought from opgi are too long and my originals are in bad shape.

Thanks for the response Dave but from what I'm being told 62 is different from 63. The search continues

Eric,  You are correct. The 1961-1963 Coupes (body styles 6247 and 6347) have a different part # than the 1963-1964 Coupes (6257 & 6357) in the master parts book. Correspondingly the glass itself has different part #'s across the years which would be expected given the complete redesign of the roof above the beltline between 1962 and 1963. 

This is the 2nd time in 2 days I've heard of the convertible door glass channel being sold to someone with the 2 door hard top coupe. Everything about that glass is different!  The convertible glass is much shorter top to bottom and  about 1/2 to 3/4" longer down the run of the door. And as you would expect, the convertible vent window frames or shorter top to bottom and longer down. 

Here is a picture of the convert side glass (missing the rear and top trim, over a 2 door coupe glass. You can clearly see the different in length:

 I never got a response about the window channel via link above fitting both convertible and coupe. Here's another older link to a seller that stated they fit 61 to 64 convertible, 61 & 62 Coupe, but not 63/64 Coupe.. .which is more in line from my assumption since the channels are different length in 63 & 64. Here's the other supplier I had on file:  https://www.antiquecadillacparts.net/1961-1962-1963-1964-new-cadill...

I have a drivers side 63 Coupe window assembly.  Lower channel and top frame are in VG condition.

OK. Here's a new trivia. There is at least one main standard (non-option) item that one could "delete" on a new 1963 or 1964 Cadillac for a reduced cost.  What is it?  For extra cigars, what is the…Continue

63 guidematic issues

Posted by maurice lapoiinte on November 24, 2019 at 3:10pm 0 Comments

 So my 63 guide matic headlamps stay on low beam all the time. I have so far bypassed the system and everything works normal. I have been thru the trouble shooting in the manual but this is where the confusion begins.on my car when the power relay is powered I have low beam and when its not powered I have highbeam, this appears to be opposite what the diagnosis says should be correct.The wiring is all original and no wires have been mixed up.has anyone ever unplugged the 2 wire connector…

Another advantage of the Pertronix III

Posted by Doug Scarrow on November 23, 2019 at 11:12am 1 Comment

   Having tried both the II and III I can say the multispark feature of the III offers a smoother idle . It is also easier to install .Does not require removal of the distributor

Stuck at two red (dash) lights!

I hope someone can help solve these two electrical problems that appeared one after the other.

By way of background: The car, a '64 Eldorado has very limited use. It was at a restoration shop for 15 months until last January-  that supposedly did a bunch of wiring repairs including rebuilding the gas gauge that still hasn't worked properly, and the clock that hasn't worked, and re-soldering the broken wires in the drive door. All window and seat controls appear to be…
