"i still haven't figured out what the top is...it looks to my eye closest to the "cabrio" or "pigskin" surface.  But, it has the very nice lining too.  I've discovered that it has already been painted…"

"Geez Clovis, you're a shocker. Now, to be truthful, I was nearly going to ask Joe if he was a Pom, but I thought no, that's a bit rude..... then you say he has camel toes. Hey Joe, we always take Clovis to places twice, the second time to…"

Yes, that's right.  Looked pretty scruffy in the EBay listing, but I went down to Palm Beach to have a look.  Very nice interior.  Some paint issues and some surface rust on the undercarriage.  Plus some kind of weird top that I've never seen before.  Vinyl but with a coarse suede-like texture, plus painted top hard surfaces and a lining...also things I've never seen in this vintage of Cadillac.  Paint is older Laquer with some issues, but not to horrible.  Engine just rebuilt, brakes done, AC just done, everything works.  Car drives beautifully.  It came from the Walgreen family collection via the seller, who bought this and three other cars from Jim Walgreen a couple years ago.

Hi Joe, that's a decent cross country trip for the Eldo. Welcome and lets see some pictures.

You know how it goes, pictures or it didn't happen. :-)

Thanks, Jason.  Just bought the '64, and it will be delivered tomorrow or Friday from Palm Beach.  The old girl will need some work, but has a pretty amazingly well-preserved original interior.  Will need a lot of work on the engine bay, undercarriage, trunk, and some paint work...oh, and a top...LOL.  The car was bought new by the Walgreen family, and owned by them until two years ago when the guy I bought it from got it.  It seems the top was rarely down, thus the nice interior.  I like other Cadillac's too, and have a '67 Eldorado (Capri Aqua slick top/Aqua leather), a '78 Seville (Riudoso Saddle Metallic slick top, Medium Saddle Leather), and a 2008 XLR-V (Black Raven/Ebony)

where do I find a new and better motor?

Posted by john kilbourne on May 24, 2018 at 11:43am 11 Comments

My '64 convert is getting better, but the engine remains questionable. Starts and runs well enough, powerful, but I think I hear a main bearing banging, the balance is not great and I'd like to upgrade to fuel injection if I can.

Are there dependable remans available of good quality? Are new crate engines available? Will more advanced engines from newer years fit?

Also, please, the diff ratio is quite high, lots of RPMs compared to today's cars. Are there diffs with lower…
