Does all 1964  Rear quarter panels fit the same as far as length and wheelbase length on quarter panel ?? I looked at a 1964 coupe Deville it looks like the rear quarter roofline is not as wide at the rear as a Fleetwood witch rear door has 1/4 glass and a Deville the 1/4 glass is cut into the roof. would I still be able to use a quarter panel from a coupe Deville?Any help would be great before I put out more money.  Thanks in advanceSee More

Hello All.

Starter Solenoid replacement-how difficult? Where to buy?

Posted by Norman Silverman on August 20, 2019 at 8:24pm 8 Comments

Hello All.

All battery cables are on tight and the battery is good. So, I believe this problem is the solenoid. Where do I buy the right solenoid and is it necessary to remove the starter in order to swap it out? …
