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

Hello

Anyone have a decent radiator and shrouds and hardware for a 1964 Cadillac deville. I have an alum. radiator and I'm deciding on to fix it or back to the original one. If I fix it I won't need parts.

Thanks

64 Recirc/Fresh Air Door Actuator replaced; FROM THE INSIDE.

Posted by Norman Silverman on February 4, 2019 at 11:21pm 8 Comments

I am happy to report that I have successfully replaced the Fresh Air/Recirc door actuator that is located on the blower box-and have done so without having to remove the blower box.

THE most difficult part -BY FAR- is to remove and then replace the screw that sits on the actuator arm, connecting it to the fresh…
