Hi all. Just signed up, figured I'd say hi and introduce. I've already found a lot of useful information on the site, thanks!

Name is Stijn (that would be Stein in less weird Dutch spelling), live in The Netherlands, Europe.
Last year I bought a matador red 64 Coupe Deville in the Portland OR area and roadtripped it to San Francisco port for shipping to Europe. The car arrived here a few weeks ago and I'm in the process of giving it some technical TLC (mainly brakes and other general maintenance) for it to pass European registration tech in a few weeks.
The roadtrip (long way round, through the parks) was amazing and I really fell in love with the old Caddy.
It's no show winner but it's unrestored, original and rustfree. Has a few 'senior parking' dings but nothing too bad. Engine is still matching to the car.

Well, I'll probably post a few questions here and there. Best regards from across the Atlantic - sorry to have abducted one of your classics to another continent but I promise it's in good hands :)

64 Recirc/Fresh Air Door Actuator replaced; FROM THE INSIDE.

Posted by Norman Silverman on February 4, 2019 at 11:21pm 8 Comments

I am happy to report that I have successfully replaced the Fresh Air/Recirc door actuator that is located on the blower box-and have done so without having to remove the blower box. I did it by taking out the glove box and attacking it from the back.  It took several days, LOTS of patience and some band-aids, but it is done. THE most difficult part -BY FAR- is to remove and then replace the screw that sits on the actuator arm, connecting it to the fresh…

Where do the flashers go in my 64 Deville Convert.  I'm thinking that's why both turn signals stopped working.

Posted by Norman Silverman on January 9, 2019 at 4:23pm 4 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

Norm
