Interesting info about timing and relatives LOL !
I do like that our cars where made a bit into the production numbers
Gave them a chance to work out any bugs that came up during early assemblies
They had some bugs that the service publications that were published along the way addressed sometimes updating ( overriding ) the printing in the Service Manual itself
The AC steamboat switch later added is one example of that

Enjoy

Hey Tony, looks like both our cars were built the first week of May!  Very cool to know her twin sister is in FL.

Thanks,

David

Eli, glad to help. Sounds like a very great color combo!

Comment by Eli on March 3, 2017 at 1:57am
Thank you Jason! I assumed the trim code meant the outside trim. I left out the year and model to boot. You truly are a shepard to dopes like me!
Comment by Jason Edge on March 2, 2017 at 11:52pm

Eli, I assume this is for a 1964 Cadillac, since that is what you show owning on you personal page. For a 1964 Cadillac Paint 14-60 is Nevada Silver Body and Black Cross Grain Vinyl Top. For the Trim, I am assuming this is a 1964 Coupe de Ville. For the 1964 Coupe de Ville, Trim Code 51 is an all Black interior. 

Comment by Eli on March 2, 2017 at 11:45pm

Forgive my ignorance, but I can't seem to find the second number in my paint code:14-60. Nevada Silver and what else? The top code is also 60. Also, the trim code page isn't loading for me, Trim 51.

Josh, The info on that link is the best I could determine. I posted that here and on the CLC site and did not receive any further feedback. Jason.

Comment by Josh Snow on October 26, 2014 at 9:36pm

Found most of the answer here...thanks for that Jason. Just needed to dig a little deeper.

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!
