The 64-429 intake manifold mystery

Started this discussion. Last reply by Clovis Nov 29. 5 Replies

I find it interesting that Cadillac raised the intake manifold over the engine block ( air space around it ) making it a bit of a high rise manifold which would make me think they were trying to get…Continue

My 64 history

I have the great pleasure of having my beautiful -all Becon Blue - 64 Cadillac convertible  (white top ) with AC - for 48 years ( as of 2012 )-- in my family since day ONE

The mental  picture of that car in my driveway with the top down is forever etched in my minds eye-

Have been a GM big block fan since my 1963 Chevy 409-425 HP--4 speed Super Sport racing days   ( held a track record at Islip Speedway- New York for 4 years  )

Went to a 1962 Cadillac --Black--Black top --Natural leather  interior --with optional then --AC  390 Cubic inch --time to slow it down some

I was in my  early 20's a sophmore in college --you could see people thinking --Who is that  kid ?

I enjoyed that car so much I became a Cadillac convertible fan for life

My 64 was my dads at this time

He loved my 62 so much he started to collect 62 thru 64 caddys

We had 5 converts and 4 coupes at one time all registered and ready to run

The new caddys in my family were  a new 52 hard top--new 55 convert--new 64 convert

They were used mostly for special occasions or for mom around town

You just knew you were special when you drove in those cars--they were a sign of financial success in those times

Dad mosly had foreign cars as daily drivers -- 1955--57 XK 120 Jaguars (5 of them ) -- 2002 BMW Tii-  65 Porsche 356 convert  --one of the first year VW's  in 1956 ,only 50 in the USA

1958 BMW R-50  black motorcycle

Cessna 182 4 passenger Airplane

I retired to Central West Florida with my 64 convert

I road a 1966 Triump -- Blue printed 750 -flat track racing bike for 28 years

One of my lifetime  racing buddys owned NASSAU county Long Isand N Y 's  Harley davidson--we liked high performance toys

Building and flying RC aircraft for 23 years

The weather here is auesome 10 months of the year  -- rains a bit the other two of the summer  -  no big deal but a country paradise most of the time

LIFE IS GOOD----

 Regards Tony and Ginny 429

The Mileage reading on your speedometer

Posted on November 4, 2017 at 10:57pm 20 Comments

I hope i am not breaking anyones bubble but if you choose to remove the speedometer you can change the mileage on these cars to anything you desire it to be by just adjusting some of its internal parts and changing the numbers

That can lead to a lot of misconduct and cause you to by a car that is not correctly represented by its mileage

Just a heads up to study other aspects of the car to see if the mileage feels right for the wear and tear you may be looking at on a given… Continue

Power steering fluid change

Posted on October 23, 2017 at 3:32pm 1 Comment

In writing my thoughts on the last thread i just realized that changing the power steering fluid is not something done very often like we do all with other fluids on a timely basis

Actually i do not remember anything that adresses the changing of this fluid on a regular basis

I did draw my fluid out with an oil sucktion tool and replaced it then did that a few more times after using the car so some of mine has been freshened up in that way

Hey it could save you from having to… Continue

Yes Tony.. it's guna be fun and a pain..I plan on making it a full- time convertible..roadster!! It's guna be completely custom with still a hint of original parts. Yes I still have her and plan on keeping her foreverrrrrrrr (like the kid said in the movie Sandlot) for-vvverrrr lol !! :)

Tony, I have a 390 and trans I bought a while back for my 50 chevy 3100 but I think I'ma go with a 350 for the truck and put the 390 in the 63.

If I had money I'd go with a Cadillac CTSV engine in her! :)

Hey Tony!! How goes it? :)

At 9:37am on October 10, 2013, Rob Shatsnider said…

Did you install special value seals.  It was my understanding that the stock ones did not prevent oil from passing and this was the cause of the 429 burning oil, even when new.

Tony, do you happen to know where I can find pictures of a 63 390 engine front back and both sides?? I am rebuilding one that I have for my project 63 and cant seem to figure out how/which parts go where..lol Please help if you can.

Doing disc brake conversion and I need to change out the rims--what to get?

Posted by Preston Bealle on December 7, 2017 at 3:55pm 20 Comments

I'm having a mechanic change to '64 Deville convertible to disc brakes. He used the spacers that came with the kit but one side takes 2 spacers and the other 3, and there is a slight disconnect from the center hub from being so far out. It appears the best solution would not be further tinkering with spacers but a deeper 15" rim made for disc brakes. Does anyone know what rims might work that will allow the existing Cadillac hub caps to fit?  

I have read everything I can find on disc…
