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.

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

Need correct Muffler for 64 DeVille

Posted by Norman Silverman on June 18, 2018 at 7:57pm 13 Comments

Hello all.

I need to replace the muffler on my 64 and the local shop does not have the correct one.

After looking on the web site's help section, I still don't see a recommended part/manufacturer or suggestion. 

What is the best solution to purchase for a stock, single system with 2 1/2 inch pipes, center in, offset out? 

Thanks.

64 Power Seat Transmission cleaning-it did the trick

Posted by Norman Silverman on June 16, 2018 at 5:36pm 4 Comments

Hello All.

I thought I'd post a little encouragement for those that might have an inoperative 6 way power seat in their car. The fix is relatively easy, and VERY cheap.

I just purchased an original (not re-painted, nor reupholstered) 64 Sedan De Ville 4 window. When I purchased it the front seat was adjusted forward and tilted down in front; two of the worst positions for me, so I had no choice but to attempt to repair it. 

Pushing the switch in each direction brought…
