i still haven't figured out what the top is...it looks to my eye closest to the "cabrio" or "pigskin" surface.  But, it has the very nice lining too.  I've discovered that it has already been painted once.  The original color, visible in a few places is more like the Palomino, or with a bit more orange.  I suppose the PO didn't care for this and had it painted.  I'm inclined to try and paint it again...a similar color.  The top should be Sandlewood, so I'll try to find a SEM color close to that.  
I don't really mind the expense of a new top, but this one fits so well, and, aside from a few minor problem areas at the glass window that I can fix, its in perfect shape.

I would probably try and give it a good scrubbing with some convertible top cleaner before replacing that because it's gonna be $$$$$$$$$. Car looks great by the way.

Geez Joe, that looks really nice.

That's a beautiful car Joe. That may be hartz(?) material on the top.

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.

Source for Motor mounts and Trans mounts 1964 SDV

Posted by Norman Silverman on January 9, 2019 at 4:23pm 4 Comments

Hi.

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?

Thanks

Norm
