"Don't listen to Kevin. A Fleetwood can be nice. And having all optional equipment could also create extra repairs or parts. The less stuff = the less repairs. Find a nice Series 62. It should have power windows and C/C (AC) and maybe electrical…"

Looking for wisdom & guidance!

Hello! What a great group! A few years ago I owned a 64 Fleetwood Series 60 special and got hooked! I’m going to be looking for a 63/64 coupe early next year and am just looking for some pointers. I want it to be stock and as dependable as can be expected. I’m definitely looking for a numbers matching turn key car I can drive as much as I want and take to shows. Not looking to win the shows necessarily but just want a good respectable example. Any advice you can share would be most appreciated.…See More

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 2 Comments

Thanks

Norm

Lately if I haven't started my '63 in four or five days it seems that the carburetor has gone dry. The starter cranks for an extended period of time and the engine doesn't come close to firing. I have resorted to pouring a little fuel into the carb to save the starter and battery. This gets it started and it runs fine. It also starts fine after sitting a short while - a couple hours or so.

The fuel pump is new and there is always fuel in the glass bowl of the fuel filter. This, along…
