1964 - 1965 limousine carry-over question

Posted on April 28, 2013 at 11:21am 1 Comment

Hi, new member here.  I have a 1965 Cadillac limousine which is actually a 1964 body style carry-over.  My question is:  Was the 1964 body style placed on a 1965 commercial chassis?  I'm wondering, because should I purchase a 1964 Service Manual or a 1965 Service Manual (or is there no differences between the two years)?  Thanks.  Jim from Worcester, MA

Upper A Arm Rubber Bumpers

Posted by Gene McIlroy on August 12, 2019 at 1:30pm 3 Comments

I have found a very good replacement part for the Upper A Arm Bumpers.  The top part is identical to the originals the bottom can be used as is or after a few minutes with a belt sander can be ground to the V shape as the originals were.  The replacement bumpers are for a 2001 to 2005 S10 Sanoma or Blazer.  Part number is on the box in the photos.  First photo is the box next to the box is the S10 part and an original.  Next photo shows my sanded down part next to an original.…
