Am doing disc conversion on front. Tore it all apart (front and rear). To re-assemble rear drums, what am i gonna need? Its been a few decades, and with my old dodge, i could do it with a flat head and vise grips. But these seem more robust on my 63 cadi. Springs stiffer(or im more wimpy). See More

1963 convertible $13,000 in Toronto

Posted on January 19, 2015 at 5:25pm 0 Comments

http://www.kijiji.ca/v-classic-cars/city-of-toronto/1963-cadillac-deville-convertible/1008196554?enableSearchNavigationFlag=true

I saw this car for sale in the fall and has been re-listed. Would work out to about $11,500 USD. Looks a little over priced if you read between the lines.... but maybe deal of the century....

Oops. thought private. Well its out there now. I bought this car last spring as an eldorado. (ownership says eldo) Imported to ontario from maryland in 1999. I suspect its not an eldorado. It has some of the markings, but also missing some key details. (like the body code) Either way im happy with purchase. If some in the know would be so kind as to hazard a guess as to its original designation????  Thanx in advance.

Can you email??? I want to see your car. My body style says 6257, not 6357. I dont know if i have an eldo knock-off or some sorta bastardized one.......itsucksbeing@rogers.com

Thanx Art. I think im gonna bite the bullet and get an edelbrock. Been reading about too many bad rebuilds, and many good things about the edelbrock.

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

Car lift and jack stands

Posted by Les Eastling on March 23, 2021 at 10:00am 4 Comments

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! …

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!
