Just realizing from the video that life in the the good old USA was truly one of the most amazing times to be alive in this country
Like the excellence that went into our Cadillacs the entire country was geared to produce products of that caliber
It was just the mind set then
Use the very best materials and make the product last as long as is possible
Made in Japan meant it would not work well for long before it broke
Those were my high school and College years when i had my 63 Chevy 409 and my 62 Cadillac convertible while in college ( mid to late 60's )
The music then was something very special to me being a hudge rock and roll fan and spending many week ends at the -Filmore East -in down town NY called the villages (the east coasts Rock palace -for the foreigners )
I am so very Blessed and grateful to have lived through that space in time

As Jay Leno stated in the later video -- owning these cars make you relive you youth and my 64 Cadillac convertible does that for me every time its out for a spin --PRICELESS

Enjoy or your doing it wrong !

Russ,

Have you ever read Maurice Hendry's tome on the history of Cadillac?

https://www.amazon.com/Cadillac-Standard-World-Complete-History/dp/...

I was given a copy of the first edition in 1973 and it tells the story in great detail starting with the biography of Henry Leland, Cadillac's founder. 

In the early days of autos Cadillac had many innovations, the first being precision manufacturing, that later became standard practice throughout the industry. 

Fun fact. The first Cadillac made in 1902 had a mid engine layout with rack and pinion steering and throttle by variable intake valve lift. These features more recently were found on some of the most sophisticated high performance sports cars.

I love original period pictures, videos, and other documentation and had to grab a copy of this video for myself. Quality was definitely first and foremost back in the early 60's.

The 1964 convert cost $ 6,200 when new and I was standing next to my Dad when he bought the car 

Enjoy

The 1962 convertible -with optional AC was my first Cadillac and responsible for me being Cadillac Crazy —for the rest of my lifetime 

i was about 28 years old 

the car had an all black exterior with a natural tan leather interior— a killer combo

Dad had two 1952 CDV’s and a 1955 convertible before I got the 1962 so  I grew up with theses car always being around me 

He loved my 1962 so much he bought the 1964 brand new that I now have ready to roll in my garage 

the 1964 convertible has never left my family and is going to my son 

a very blessed Car Guy life 

Enjoy

That's interesting.  It explains the high cost of the car.

Original 64 Color sanded and buffed out

Posted by Norman Silverman on November 10, 2018 at 9:05pm 14 Comments

I finally got the car back from the body shop, where they color sanded and polished it out. I am literally blown away by the result! Now, it looks great from 2 feet but if you look REALLY CLOSE you can see that the paint is not as glossy as it should be, but Sothe end result is much better than what I started with. The interior is still original.
