If  you have a decent interior shop willing to work with you they should have multiple sources and should be able to come very close to original.  I deal with a very reputable auto interior shop here in Raleigh NC that's been in business since 1973 and they matched it very well on my 64 CDV back when I replaced the carpet. I just took him a sample of the cut pile from beneath the seat and they matched up to a cut and color that was very close.

Be prepared to wait 6 months or more when dealing with SMS and expect them to send you wrong or dirty materials at least once... It's probably safer (but for sure it's a lot faster) to just go to Oregon and pick up your stuff in person.

Flashers

Where do the flashers go in my 64 Deville Convert.  I'm thinking that's why both turn signals stopped working.

Source for Motor mounts and Trans mounts 1964 SDV

Posted by Norman Silverman on January 9, 2019 at 4:23pm 2 Comments

Hi.

Where is the best place to purchase good quality motor mounts/trans mounts for my 1964 SDV? I see that Rock Auto has them for $8 and change, and others for $24 and change. Big difference. Is there a better place to buy them from?

Thanks

Fuel loss in Carburetor

Posted by Ian Osborne on December 29, 2018 at 11:24pm 16 Comments

I have resorted to pouring a little fuel into the carb to save the starter and battery. This gets it started and it runs fine. It also starts fine after sitting a short while - a couple hours or so.

The fuel pump is new and there is always fuel in the glass bowl of the fuel filter. This, along…
