Hi gang. Im looking for a set of power seat cables for my 64 deville. Can any one point me in the right direction?

Power Steering

Posted on September 9, 2015 at 12:25pm 3 Comments

I have seen several examples of 63 and 64 restored motors and engine compartments; including Jason Edge' beautiful pics of his motor, on our website here. I am an advocate of saving the life of these old Cadillacs. To me this means returning the car to its original glory. That said, using the correct colors in the correct places is important to me.

I have seen examples of power steering pumps in black and Cadillac blue, I have seen examples of vented and non vented pulleys in black and… Continue

Water temp sending unit

Posted on August 31, 2015 at 1:35am 13 Comments

The motor in my 64 DeVille was rebuilt prior to me owning the car. Some jack wagon cut the end off of the green temperature sending wire, and never installed the temp sending unit back in the head...they just plugged it. I am hoping some one might have a pic of the correct wire routing and the connection end on the the temp sending wire.

Freeze Plugs

Posted on August 4, 2015 at 2:33pm 3 Comments

My 64 DeVille has a set of steel freeze plugs.  The car was left in storage with only water (no Antifreeze) in the engine.  The freeze plugs have rusted and are starting to leak.  I am trying to find a source for a set of the good brass Freeze plugs to replace them.  The vendors here on our website only seem to carry the steel replacements.

I am sure I can get the brass freeze plugs if some one could give me the correct size of each of them.

I am open to suggestions.

Can you help? Driveshaft Question....

Posted by Chris on May 30, 2021 at 8:55am 1 Comment

Hello!

Newbie to the group here - we have already found tons of invaluable information on the board, so thanks! We are restoring a 1963 Series 62 Convertible. We are wondering if anyone knows of a source to buy the propellor yoke flange (that bolts to the pinion flange) for the driveshaft? One of our ears partially broke off. Not sure if we can buy just the yoke flange as an aftermarket part, or if it has to be rebuilt by a welder/fab guy? Maybe a salvage yard for a source? Again, any…

V.I.N. where?

Posted by Robert Pellow on April 18, 2021 at 1:41pm 6 Comments

Where can I find the V.I.N. on a 63 convertible?  The usual space at the base of the interior windshield on the driver's side has been decimated by weather.

63 Trunk detail

Posted by Bob Pontius on April 8, 2021 at 3:07pm 6 Comments

Jason, I liked the detail and information you have provided. I would like to do mine similar to yours. Can you help? Do you have trunk material? OPGI is sending the trunk product for my 63 Fleetwood. But it does cover the entire trunk as yours was done. If you do not have can you give me a reference? Thanks!! Bob
