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.

Stuck at two red (dash) lights!

Posted by Jeff Kinzler on November 3, 2019 at 10:00pm 9 Comments

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…

Dash removal

Posted by Jake Mickley on October 9, 2019 at 12:06am 9 Comments

Hello everyone,

On a 63 CDV, if a guy wanted to remove the entire dash to get all the metal painted, and do some other things behind there, how would he go about doing that?  I checked here and the shop manual, but can't find a complete guide.

As always, and help or direction is appreciated.  Thanks!

Introducing myself

Thanks for letting me join the club.  Picked up this ‘64 Coupe Deville a few months ago out of Beverly MA, the car has few stickers on it from various Cadillac clubs, didn’t know if anyone might recognize it from it’s “Glory days.” Everything seems pretty healthy except for the body and some very Mickey Mouse repairs, was wondering if anyone had any leads on…
