Hello all, my question pertains to interior of a recent barn find. A 1963 cadillac sedan with 16000 original miles. Unfortunately it had mice in the car, so of course the whole interior which is…Continue
"Could be a cool barn find. You might get a kick out of this, but my last car had lots of mice in it and has the "nice rat piss smell" and every time I walk my yorkies out by it I have to let them poke their head in and get a whiff! I…"
"I would also question the mileage. A car with that little miles would show very little interior wear. Mice can cause a lot of damage and give an old car the rat piss smell but that does not wear the driver seat down like a care with 100K…"
"it depends on what you'd like to have when your finished. If you're looking for a full custom job, they won't care about the old covers, you can rip them off and throw them away. If you'd like them to match what was…"
"I would remove the seats and panels and take it to the shop and discuss with them. I would also buy a new carpet.
Just curious, why would a car with only 16 000 miles be put in a barn and left to rot? Doesn't make sense. You sure its not 116k…"
Hello all, my question pertains to interior of a recent barn find. A 1963 cadillac sedan with 16000 original miles. Unfortunately it had mice in the car, so of course the whole interior which is complete needs to come out.When taking interuor door panels and seats to an interior shop would you strip the seats down or let the shop tear and rebuild them? The seats just stink.PaulSee More

I hope someone can help solve these two electrical problems that appeared one after the other.
By way of background: The car, a '64 Eldorado has very limited use. It was at a restoration shop for 15 months until last January- that supposedly did a bunch of wiring repairs including rebuilding the gas gauge that still hasn't worked properly, and the clock that hasn't worked, and re-soldering the broken wires in the drive door. All window and seat controls appear to be…
can anyone help me with a driveshaft ? I have a 1963 Cadillac 62 series 4dr with the hydro-matic trans. I need the male splined shaft on the front of the rear driveshaft section. the piece with the nut attached by clip.id be willing to buy a shaft if its not horribly priced.
On a 63 CDV, if a guy wanted to remove the entire dash to get all the metal painted, and do some other things behind there, how would he go about doing that? I checked here and the shop manual, but can't find a complete guide.
As always, and help or direction is appreciated. Thanks!
Thanks for letting me join the club. Picked up this ‘64 Coupe Deville a few months ago out of Beverly MA, the car has few stickers on it from various Cadillac clubs, didn’t know if anyone might recognize it from it’s “Glory days.” Everything seems pretty healthy except for the body and some very Mickey Mouse repairs, was wondering if anyone had any leads on…
