A Little Rant

I know I probably shouldn't get upset about what someone else is selling on eBay as long as they are honest in the description. There is nothing untrue in the description but a certain '63 - '64…Continue

Fuel loss in Carburetor

Posted on December 29, 2018 at 11:24pm 16 Comments

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…

'63 Bumpers on L.A. Craigslist

Posted on December 8, 2018 at 1:30am 0 Comments

The front lower ends are gone but what's there looks to be in decent condition and a fair price in today's market. I have no connection, just passing it along in case it might work for someone.

Haven't been here for a while and looking for some parts

Posted on March 30, 2013 at 1:06pm 3 Comments

Hello,

I was a member sometime back when the format was different. I reproduce the door pull courtesy light lenses used in the '63 coupes. I sold a few to members back then and received a few requests for the rear lenses. I would like to start doing those now but need to get a pair of the lamp housings they fit into. If it is alright I would offer them for sale here. I try to sell them at a price that works for both me and the buyer. I am not trying to get rich, just make a…

1963 Eldorado convertible boot

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

I need a used convertible boot for a 63 Cadillac convertible - condition or color is not an issue since it will be used as a pattern for making a new one. 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!
