"Kevin, In fact it is the same hood listed for 63 & 64 in the Master Parts Book. Just a few minor mods and you can definitely used a 64 hood on a 63. Since we are drilling down to the details, here are the things you will need to do/consider for…"

"Also the 63 "V" hood ornament is smaller so the holes don't line up. You can just use the 64 hood ornament if that doesn't bother you. Otherwise it would require filling in the 64 holes, & drilling the 63 holes and whatever…"

Russ Austin replied to Kevin Kennedy's discussion cadillac hood
"Yes, and no. It fits perfectly, but the 63 has the lower valance while the 64 does not.  The 64 has the dimples in the metal for the fasteners, while the 63 has holes where the fasteners go.  You can just screw the lower valance to a 64…"

clock repair

Posted on November 28, 2015 at 2:56am 2 Comments

If anyone has a clock that chatters and does not run I think that I have figured out how to fix it. In the pic there is a shaft with some gears, ratchet and winding mechanism. This shaft comes a little loose and drops down a little bit so that the ratchet ( green arrow ) does not line up with it's corresponding gear like it should and sometimes will not engage the teeth on the winding gear to wind the clock and will thus make the contacts chatter. To fix the problem you will need a 12 volt…

1963 Eldorado convertible boot

Posted by Les Eastling on February 27, 2020 at 10:33am 1 Comment

I need a used convertible boot for a 63 Cadillac convertible - condition or color is not an issue since it will be used as a pattern for making a new one. One from either a 62 series convertible or an Eldorado would work. I know I am searching for hen's teeth here... but you never know unless you ask!
