Trivia Question 16 - Dealer Option One Year - Factory Option the Next!

OK..Here is a trivia question I have meant to ask over the years but never got back to it. The question is:

What option was a Dealer Installed Only Option in 1963, but became a Factory Option in 1964?   
I know of one example... there may be more.

Seatbelts 

Nope.

RH mirror?

twilight sentinel?

Nope.

Fm radio 

Nope.

Remove the word —on —in my last post but only on  the home page 

No idea how that happened 

Enjoy 

 Rear window de-froster?

Bingo. We have a winner. More details in a bit.

We had some great guesses but Robert Shannon gets the Cigar as Rear Window Defogger (Defroster) is correct.  See the Dealer Data Book scans below, not to mention Robert's Cigar! 
Running through the other guesses:
AM-FM Radio --> Factory Option both years
RH Mirror --> Dealer Option both years
Twilght Sentinel --> Not available in 1963, Factory Option in 1964 (new for 1964)
seat belts --> Factory Option both years, with front seat belts becoming standard equipment part way thru 1964 model year.

Rear Window Defogger ==> Listed Dealer Option in 1963, but available as a Factory Option in 1964.

And for Robert.... Have a Cigar!!!!

Congrats Robert.

Jason, question: does the Sedan not have a speaker on the right side of the package shelf like the Coupe?

1963 Eldorado convertible boot

Posted by Les Eastling on February 27, 2020 at 10:33am 1 Comment

I need a used convertible boot for a 63 Cadillac convertible - condition or color is not an issue since it will be used as a pattern for making a new one. One from either a 62 series convertible or an Eldorado would work. I know I am searching for hen's teeth here... but you never know unless you ask!
