"I agree.  I'll bet a year's wages it's either PCV or intake gasket.  Those both cause intermittent whistling and both disappear (usually) when idling."

Help on Removal of rear seatback on 64 convertible

Posted by Nile Bolen on January 8, 2021 at 11:44am 7 Comments

I'm trying to remove the rear seatback on my 1964 deville conv.  The only help on this site that I can find is the following:
