Hello everyone, hope all is well.Winter has arrived in the great state of Minnesota.  My Cadillac decided to put herself down for the winter with a brake hose leak.  While I am in there swapping out the brake fluid hoses, I am taking this opportunity to swap out worn suspension components.  I am ordering parts and see that the upper control arm bushings come in either 1.5 inch OD or 1 7/16 OD.I have a 63 coupe DeVille, which ones do I need?  I know I have seen this discussed previously but I…See More

Looking for a power antenna

Since I purchased my Cadillac, there has been some additional wiring that has always bothered me.  Finally tracked it down today.  The antenna on the car is not factory and let's just say the previous owner, well, "made it work."I would really like to get this cleaned up and back to factory.  Anyone have a working factory power antenna for a 63 coupe deville they are willing to part with?  Thanks.--JakeSee More

Although the radiator was not leaking, nor was the car running hot, I tool out the radiator today to have it boiled out and rodded out. Then I changed the oil and filter (filter is very easy to reach with the radiator out), then the thermostat got changed. 

I'll have the radiator back from the shop on Monday, and will reinstall it then.

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.
