On the tilt column, there is a shift lever (tranny), and mine seems too loose. Like I am missing a spring.  Is there a spring and where would it be?  What does it look like? Continue

1963 with 1964 Caddy Retractable Belt bolt location

I have a 63, and I have, in a box, 2 retractable seatbelts.  The 1963 seat belts bolt through the floor with a huge washer.  The 1964 seems to bolt into the side where it is not obvious place and where the bolt would exit into a void.  It seems there is a cavity on the side with the rockers on the outside and a void inside.  How can I safely attache the 64 retractable in a 63??  I assume the 64 had factory captive bolts - is this correct??See More

Help a couple in their 80s with a Cadillac???

Posted on March 7, 2014 at 12:16am 1 Comment

There is a couple in their 80s about ready to celibrate their 50th wedding anaversery. Their son saw my 63 Cadillac in San Diego and he is trying to find a 1960-1964 Cadillac in Las Vegas in the spring for a ride.  Why? It seems these couple had a 1962 Cadillac when they were married 50 years ago. The son wants to do something nice for them and find “the car” to take them to a nice dinner or show.

 

If you have a nice Cadillac in Vegas, I would like to connect you…

Transmission swap on a 1963

Posted on June 28, 2013 at 3:05am 2 Comments

My Jetaway in my 1963 convertible is giving me problems....again.  It has 10K on a rebuild.  The transmission has been a problem some years and I have a lot of money into it.  I have not found a good transmission guy, so I am thinking.

Does anybody have specific parts and instructions for a 700R transplant??  I am thinking that I might just get rid of the Jetaway and the headaches from the thing.

Any Ideas???

Dash removal

Posted by Jake Mickley on October 9, 2019 at 12:06am 9 Comments

Hello everyone,

On a 63 CDV, if a guy wanted to remove the entire dash to get all the metal painted, and do some other things behind there, how would he go about doing that?  I checked here and the shop manual, but can't find a complete guide.

As always, and help or direction is appreciated.  Thanks!
