What years of booster will bolt on without making bigger holes?

My drum brakes were working well and dumb me wanted to install disk brake for safety!  Now I need a bigger booster to back up the new disk brakes.  I don’t want a aftermarket one.  So I am looking for a GM one that’s larger then my 7” and will bolt on.  Will a 1966 Cadillac work? Will a 1968 work? Thanks Dave See More

Righthand Passenger Mirror 1961-64 Original OEM

Posted on December 5, 2013 at 9:49am 0 Comments

This is a very hard to find part. The number is 5954511. I have not seen one on eBay for a year. It is NOT a reproduction! It has 50+ years of use. If you are restoring a car include this original Cadillac Mirror. Look closes at all photos and ask for more if need. The glass mirror has scratches. Chrome missing on base. Stem has pits. Shine mirror back with tiny rock dent. Only buy this mirror if you are going to restore it or you understand the condition! I was told its off a 64.…

1963 Eldorado convertible boot

Posted by Les Eastling on February 27, 2020 at 10:33am 1 Comment

One from either a 62 series convertible or an Eldorado would work. I know I am searching for hen's teeth here... but you never know unless you ask!
