Welcome to my own little corner of parts hoarding



A little about me. I drive a 63 sedan, series 62. Also a 63 Cadillac Superior Hearse. I have started getting parts cars, and stripping them down for the parts, since GM has decided not to make parts for our cars any more. I work a full time job, so this is my hobby. A full time hobby it seems.  I have many parts for the 1963 & 64 Cadillacs.  To inquire about parts, email me at   Please include your zip code or country so I can reply with a good shipping quote.


ITEMS SOLD AS IS. I try to offer reasonable prices on good used parts that are becoming harder and harder to find. Please be absolutely correct in identifying  the model of your car, as there are several, and some parts are not compatible with all models. I generally do not offer money back guarantees as my parts are sold as is. I will, however, be glad to swap out an item if it does not work or is unacceptable and I have a replacement item in stock and you pay shipping and handling costs. This is especially true for electrical components such as AC & Heater parts. Items such as power antenna motors are tested and I will state that it has been tested in my reply. I will be glad to send digital pictures if needed and describe the part to the best of my ability to help determine the condition of an item. Keep in mind that most parts are not NOS or Mint and when I state something is good or very good this does not mean near Mint or Mint.  Once you contact me to inquire about a part, I will hold that part for you, for 5 days. After 5 days, the part goes back on my shelves, waiting for another customer.

I ship 2-3 day priority mail through the U.S. Postal Service unless we agree to another shipping method. Shipping and Handling price quotes are understood to include Priority Mail shipping unless otherwise indicated. I do ship outside of the United States, however, I will need a shipping address to determine what your shipping charges will be. I use the online U.S. Postal Service calculator to determine rates for addresses outside the U.S. You can confirm the rate for yourself by going to  I do not generally include insurance with the cost of shipping.  If you pay with Pay Pal, please ensure that the address listed in your Pay Pal account is correct.
Note: If you do not provide me with a specific Ship To address, I will used the return address on your envelope, check or any other source of address that I can find. If you do not provide me with a deliverable Ship To address then I do not assume responsibility for your items being lost.

I try to work with buyers of larger parts in which I cannot provide shipping and try to allow sufficient amount of time for buyer to either pick-up or arrange for shipping. I will allow a maximum of two months for pickup for any items that has been purchased. After two months I will put item back in stock and buyer will forfeit the payment and the item. Please make sure if you purchase an item such as an engine, windshield, fender, hood, etc. that you will be able to either pick the item up or arrange for shipping.

Pay Pal is the prefered method of payment. Personal Check, Money Order, or Cashiers Check are fine and should be sent to my address listed below. I generally do not hold items, but reserve the right to hold an item until a personal check has cleared.  You can send money to my PAYPAL account set up under my e-mail address . I ship the item to the address shown in the Pay Pal address unless otherwise specified.

To inquire about parts, please e-mail me at

Seat belt restoration

Posted by Michael Forte on March 6, 2018 at 12:00am 4 Comments

During the process of a complete restoration (and color change) of my ‘63s interior during the winter of 2016, I replaced the aftermarket seatbelts that were in my car with restored original '64 buckles and retractors.  I had a terrific experience with Ssnake-Oyl Products out of Tyler Texas, so I thought I share the info. 

In my opinion, the '64 seat belt buckle with the Cadillac Crest is the coolest looking seat belt buckle ever put in a car.  Apparently, they're not easy to find in…


Drive shaft Question

Posted by Christopher Belinda on February 26, 2018 at 12:45pm 3 Comments

Good Morning - I have read several, very informative posts on this site regarding the 63/64 drive shaft and am looking for a few recommendations.  My Park Avenue is a relatively low mileage car (32,000); however, in an effort to make this a very reliable, long distance traveler I would like to ensure that this vital component has a clean bill of health.  Normally, this would mean replacing all universal joints, greasing the slip yoke, and replacing the carrier bearing/mount.  As you have…


Air Suspension - How to Choose and Install

Posted by Michael Forte on February 19, 2018 at 10:00pm 15 Comments

What I enjoy most about old cars is that they can be restored to original condition, radically customized, or somewhere between those extremes, reflecting the owner's individual style.  For my '63 Convertible, I want to achieve a mostly original look, with minor custom touches to make it clean, smooth, and low.  This article is to share my experience in choosing and installing the suspension components to achieve a low stance and a comfortable ride.

I purchased my car in August of…
