Hello, I have a 63 Cadillac Series 62 Convertible.The car was recently rear-ended and I now have a dent in the rear bumper.Separately, the front bumper has some rust holes.I've attached pictures of both.Can you advise what options I have for getting the dent out and fixing the holes, and potential pricing guesses?  I looked on the supplies page and sent an email to Bumperboyz, as I'm in Los Angeles, so we'll see what they say.  It may be cheaper to replace the front bumper ends than try to fix…See More

Best Distributor Cap Rotors and wires for use with Pertronix III

Posted on July 5, 2013 at 6:13pm 12 Comments

Hello everyone. My 63 Series-62 convertible left me stranded this weekend.  I traced the issue down (I believe) to weak and inconsistent spark. I made the terrible mistake of letting someone else put a new Distributor Cap, rotor, and plug wires in about 2 months ago because I was super busy and didn't have time. When I actually got to taking stuff apart and trying to diagnose it, I realize they put a cheap piece of crap Cap, rotor, and plug set in there. I messed around all day on the 4th…

Hello chapter!

I would love to hear from anyone who lives or travels through the less friendly parts of the world. I live in Los Angeles, and I am never too comfortable leaving my 63 Convertible unattended.

What are your favorite Anti-theft devices for these vehicles and why? Any advice much appreciated.

Thanks!

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!
