Hey guys, take a look at these pictures. I had my dash repainted but the color does not match the other pieces in the car.  The data tag is gone on my car, so I had to guess at the color code. My…Continue

Interior paint

Hey guys, take a look at these pictures. I had my dash repainted but the color does not match the other pieces in the car.  The data tag is gone on my car, so I had to guess at the color code. My question to you guys that have parted out several cars, what color do you think this is? I am certain that I have trim code 61 which would be Gray. to me this paint has a blueish tint.…See More

Cadillacs of the sixties.

Do any of you own the Cadillacs of the Sixties book? I was wondering if it was worth the 100 plus price they sell for.

Rear end oil change.

Posted on September 27, 2014 at 10:42pm 4 Comments

Any of you guys ever change your rear end oil. Am I correct in assuming that the old oil has to be pumped out? I don't see any bolts holding a rear plate like others I've seen.

Jason, Would you like the dimensions?

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. I did it by taking out the glove box and attacking it from the back.  It took several days, LOTS of patience and some band-aids, but it is done. 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…

Where do the flashers go in my 64 Deville Convert.  I'm thinking that's why both turn signals stopped working.

Source for Motor mounts and Trans mounts 1964 SDV

Posted by Norman Silverman on January 9, 2019 at 4:23pm 4 Comments

Hi.

Where is the best place to purchase good quality motor mounts/trans mounts for my 1964 SDV? I see that Rock Auto has them for $8 and change, and others for $24 and change. Big difference. Is there a better place to buy them from?

Thanks

Norm
