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.

64 Recirc/Fresh Air Door Actuator replaced; FROM THE INSIDE.

Posted by Norman Silverman on February 4, 2019 at 11:21pm 8 Comments

I am happy to report that I have successfully replaced the Fresh Air/Recirc door actuator that is located on the blower box-and have done so without having to remove the blower box. I did it by taking out the glove box and attacking it from the back.  It took several days, LOTS of patience and some band-aids, but it is done. THE most difficult part -BY FAR- is to remove and then replace the screw that sits on the actuator arm, connecting it to the fresh…

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 4 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

Norm
