I have a 1963 Deville 4 door 6 window sedan.  How can I determine where if it is a Sixty Two series or not.  What are some of the differences between the sixty two series and the non sixty two series 4 door 6 window sedan?

Scroll down to Body Styles and VIN:

Help is the best place on this site. You will use it a lot of keeping the car.

"if keeping the car" should it be.

Thank you!

3rd digit in your VIN is a letter that designates the body style. If unsure of where to find your VIN # click on this help page link: www.vin.6364cadillac.com. If letter is K (i.e. VIN 63K......) you have a Six Window Series 62 Sedan. If letter is L (i.e. VIN 63L......) you have a Six Window Sedan de Ville.

As far as difference between Series 62 and deVilles most differences are in the interior and options vs standard equipment.
On the exterior you will have a Sedan de Ville script on the rear qtr panel; on the Series 62 no script on rear qtr
On the interior, styling is completely different. For deVilles you will have a full arm rest on the door that integrates the arm rest and switch panel, and includes the power seat switches; Series 62 has smaller switch pods in front of arm rest and power seat (if equipped) switches are on the lower metal trim base of the seats.  De Villes have courtesy lights built into the doors; series 62 has non-lighted reflectors.  De Villes come standard with power seats and power windows; series 62 do not. 1963 Series 62 has vertical pleating on the seat bolsters; deVilles have a squared pattern with buttons.  The deVilles have a front center arm rest, while the Series 62 do not. The materals used were also different. I could go on and on but the dealer data book scans below will give you a better understand of the differences.

Thanks so much for taking the time to educate me. Very helpful!

Bad Guage?

Posted by Karl Schwarz on August 26, 2020 at 3:08pm 6 Comments

So I am troubleshooting my fuel gauge issue. I bought a new sender and tested it. It  it goes from 1-ohm (empty) to 35-ohm (full). When I test it (outside the tank), when the float is in the up (full) position it only moves the gauge to about 1/2 full. When at the bottom (empty) position the gauge shows empty. This is the same issue I have when I fill and then use the gas in the tank - the gauge never reads ore than half full. Based on what I've read on this thread it would seem like the…
