Yep, it's old, dirty, cracked, and glued.  My understanding is this style reservoir was used in the first half of 63 before they changed the design.  The replacement I have on my car is the later…Continue

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

Need correct Muffler for 64 DeVille

Posted by Norman Silverman on June 18, 2018 at 7:57pm 13 Comments

Hello all.

I need to replace the muffler on my 64 and the local shop does not have the correct one.

After looking on the web site's help section, I still don't see a recommended part/manufacturer or suggestion. 

What is the best solution to purchase for a stock, single system with 2 1/2 inch pipes, center in, offset out? 

Thanks.

Pushing the switch in each direction brought…
