Car lift and jack stands

I mentioned during the 63/64 chapter zoom meeting on 3/21 that we had installed a car lift in our garage. Someone asked what kind and I didn't have the info at hand, so here is a link to it and also a link to some tall jack stands we use to add more stability to the car and an additional safety factor. There is something about getting underneath one of these cars that makes me a little nervous! DP10A Forward…See More

1963 Eldorado convertible boot

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!See More

Seat belt restoration

Posted on February 4, 2015 at 6:26pm 1 Comment

Does anyone have any positive or negative references for seat belt restoration? I need to get belt webbing replaced and the mechanisms checked out for my '63 Eldorado.

Thanks,

1963 Eldoado interior

Posted on February 28, 2014 at 10:43am 2 Comments

Well we (my son and I) have finally made it to the interior of our '63 Eldorado and thought we would find the original interior underneath the seat covers that had been installed, but instead we find an earlier reupholster job that is not done in the original design. So now we are seeking any advice, photos, etc. or information of any kind on the interior seats of a '63 Eldorado. Leads on interior shops that may be able to reupholster the seats would be great also!

Thanks for any help…

63 Trunk detail

Posted by Bob Pontius on April 8, 2021 at 3:07pm 1 Comment

Jason, I liked the detail and information you have provided. I would like to do mine similar to yours. Can you help? Do you have trunk material? OPGI is sending the trunk product for my 63 Fleetwood. But it does cover the entire trunk as yours was done. If you do not have can you give me a reference? Thanks!! Bob

Leaky Freeze Plug

Posted by Lee Martin on March 22, 2021 at 12:49pm 7 Comments

Just developed a significant leak coming from a freeze plug right over the starter.  Would this be considered a "cam plug" i.e. like Dorman 17616DS?  Our cars have multiple sizes of plugs on engine block and I want to get the right one.  Also, does anyone know how pricey this is for a shop to fix?  Thanks!
