Don't know. Perhaps David will see this and chime in.
Yes Jason- My Youtube channel will show just how far my Cadillac addiction has grown!! 64 is still my favorite! Noticed comments on the story that others would not have attempted to save her- to look for another. If she had all those issues AND was rusted out- I would have kept looking for sure-but she was solid. I was told she sat in that field for 7 years-it is amazing she survived at all in those conditions. All the stars aligned for me in this case. As soon as found the Green 64- I found the T-Boned parts car only two hours away. I actually did a full mechanical service on the parts car first to ensure it was a good donor. Made sure nothing was stuck, valves etc Checked the block for cracks, changed all the fluids, checked and cleaned carb -ran off a gas can and actually drove the t-boned car around the barn yard. The entire drive-line and electrical system was put into the Green 64- plus numerous other parts. A true testament to the value of Parts cars- as we all know. With only 44000 miles- now 46000 she is still only a Baby! Thanks again for telling Our Story!
Thanks for the additional info! A great story, indeed!!!
I watched a couple of the YouTube videos. That must be him.
Just unbelievable to me that anybody would use a torch to remove an engine and transmission; unless the rest of the car was headed to the scrap yard. If I'd already paid for the rolling chassis, I'd be looking for some recourse; money back or whoop-ass time! Maybe would have been money/time ahead to buy the whole thing. That guy gives salvage yards a bad name; complete jerkwad.
Old time wrecking yards here would do that too.....maybe not to that extent, but diff housings, just cut the springs and hand brake cable and fluid lines and bingo, there's your diff assembly.
Much more professional these days though.
