"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…"

"I'll get around to replacing the (new, but obviously wrong) tires soon.  I'll go with 8.20 or 900-15 Bias-Ply's."

"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…"

"I would probably try and give it a good scrubbing with some convertible top cleaner before replacing that because it's gonna be $$$$$$$$$. Car looks great by the way. "

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)

Brakes Went Out

Posted by Christopher Codd on August 8, 2018 at 8:25am 18 Comments

My '64 Cadillac DeVille had been sitting for awhile while I was travelling this summer and when I came home it had some issues starting. After replacing the plugs and the ignition coil, it was running better than it had in a long time but the brakes were sticking. I noticed the brake pedal was traveling a little farther than usual when slowing down. Soon after I noticed a hissing noise coming from around the brake pedal. Then I lost the brakes pretty much completely. I couldn't find any…

Comfortron AC trouble shooting

Posted by Norman Silverman on July 23, 2018 at 8:54pm 5 Comments

OK, here we go.....

I got the book to troubleshoot the system. INDISPENSABLE to this effort. 

As I do a cursory exam, I see that the AC RECIRC SOLENOID is Cracked (the WHITE one in the engine compartment coming out of the HVAC body with two vacuum hoses on it). I tried to patch it up (cracked all around the base), but it does not look like it will hold. 

PLEASE TELL ME THAT REPLACING THIS PART IS NOT AS DIFFICULT AS I THINK IT IS, But I think it is a bear to…

A/C Issue / Stumped !

Posted by Dana G Cooper on July 23, 2018 at 6:29pm 33 Comments

My 63 CDV factory A/C was trash so I replaced every part in the system and converted to R134 . I also installed a STV bypass kit which eliminated the STV all together and converted the system to a cycling system.  I vacumed and charged the system with 36oz of 134. The system is cycling as it should and the pressures are right at 250 high side, cycle off at 25lbs and cycle back on at about 35lbs. It is making plenty of water on the low side hoses and evaporator drain. There is very good air…
