Well, it took me 4 1/2 years to get around to putting whitewalls on the car, but I've finally done it. Couldn't stand those wretched BF Goodrich Max Load blackwalls any longer, although they handled well. These 1.5" WSW tires were only $76 from…

For sale: 1963 Cadillac front center impact bar $100 + shipping

Posted on April 3, 2018 at 2:12pm 0 Comments

Offering this newly re-chromed 1963 Cadillac front center impact bar for sale, $100 plus whatever it costs to ship it from Detroit to your location.  

The unit fits perfect on driver's side but does not sit flush on passenger side.  I am told someone needs to take a wooden block and hammer and bang the passenger side lower corner in to make it fit right.  If you know how to do this stuff, this is the piece for you.

1963 Carter Carb Mystery

Posted on May 17, 2016 at 11:30am 6 Comments

Last weekend, I was trying (vainly) to remove the blower motor cover in the engine compartment when I noticed something strange:  A black rubber hose, originating from a vacuum actuator on the passenger side of my Carter carb, that went nowhere.  The previous owner had carefully tucked the free end underneath another vacuum actuator attached to the blower motor cover.  There was a plastic nipple stuck in the free end of the hose, meaning the other end led to another hose.  I looked…

Beware OPGI Transmission Cooler Lines

Posted on May 22, 2015 at 8:30am 3 Comments

The lines sold for 1963 & 64 Cadillacs are NOT good on all cars.  Specifically, they do NOT fit Series 62 or 75 vehicles. 

The lines they sell have threaded ends/screws on both ends.  Refer to your shop manuals and you will see this is NOT the correct fitting for the transmission ends.  A complicated setup involving beaded tube endings and sleeves with O-rings connected by rubber hose & clamps is required.

After two lengthly phone conversations with customer service it…

Pinion Angle

Posted on May 19, 2015 at 3:49pm 8 Comments

My mechanic says the downward angle of my pinion has chewed up my driveshaft and will do it again unless we raise it.  Problem is there doesn't seem to be any direct means of adjusting pinion angle on 1963 Cadillac Series 62.  Anyone else go through this?  What was the resolution?

Original 64 Color sanded and buffed out

Posted by Norman Silverman on November 10, 2018 at 9:05pm 14 Comments

I finally got the car back from the body shop, where they color sanded and polished it out. I am literally blown away by the result! Now, it looks great from 2 feet but if you look REALLY CLOSE you can see that the paint is not as glossy as it should be, but Sothe end result is much better than what I started with. The interior is still original.
