Picked up that Vintage 1963 Convertible Cadillac Solid State Radio Today

I've seen this vintage "Made in Hong Kong" 1963 Cadillac convertible solid state radio from time to time over the years but never picked one up. Yesterday this one popped up on my regional Craig's List filter for $25, and I jumped on it. It uses a 9 volt battery and works and had a cool sort of dark gold finish!  I did some quick searches and seems it was produced sometime later in the 1960's by a company called Federal. It is noted as Model Cad-1 on the box, however, there is no date that I can find on the car or box. Anyway, I thought I would share. I do have a Cadillac Toys and Models photo album I started some time back and will add this one.

Check it out  …. some of you may already have it:

love it.

Okay you confirmed it. Yes you are a nerd!!!!

And I like it too.

That is the model of a 63 that i have since the late 60's or early 70's on display in my home since then
Very enjoyable to have being an early 60's Cadillac convertible NUT myself

The body lines of these cars with the top down Is just as good as it gets regarding style
This is Truely METAL ART to me that has stood the test of time for outstanding style in autombile design
When you see one of these cars there is no question what brand of car you are looking at unlike the cars of today that look so similar that you have to look to see who made the car
The newer Cadillacs at least look a lot better than most the other cars on the road today and are easily identified ( there paint work has always been top notch )
And they are great performance machines as is expected from the leading edge great car company they have been for many decades
So easy to Love a true Champion in the world of automobiles


Like you Cadillac pen cups in the back ground
Very nice !


 Jason, I just happened to look on Ebay when you posted this. I found one for sale. This thing looks like it was never opened. The radio works great. AM at its finest, just like the stock radio in my car (without the "Wonder bar" though) lol. It makes a nice addition to my Caddy shelf.

Kurt, That is a very nice display. Yes, I had seen this 63 am radio numerous times on eBay but never picked one up. The local Craig's List listing was too much and had to bite! Glad I did. It is a nice addition to any 63/64 Cadillac collection!

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.

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?
