Thanks for letting me join the club.  Picked up this ‘64 Coupe Deville a few months ago out of Beverly MA, the car has few stickers on it from various Cadillac clubs, didn’t know if anyone might recognize it from it’s “Glory days.” Everything seems pretty healthy except for the body and some very Mickey Mouse repairs, was wondering if anyone had any leads on some workable fenders, hood, trunk lid, doors or rear quarters.  It is a hydramatic car, has the floor mounted radio channel switcher and six way power seat as options, at least I think they are options.  And yes it is pink, but I doubt I will keep it that way.

I sure am thankful for the leads on parts, guys.  Just placed a big order with Russ for most of what I will need for the old girl.  Still looking for a more workable trunk lid and ideally some rear quarters, but I’m thankful to have a good chunk of it started.  I’m used to restoring old Chevy’s, where I can just buy the parts new.  Again, appreciate the help!

Thanks for the advice and welcomes everyone.  Russ is working on some of those parts for me.  I’m pretty excited about it.  Getting ready to put an exhaust and gas tank in it this week, I’d like to get it quiet so I can drive it more and get more of an assessment of it’s driving condition.

I reckon Russ, going by the right side glass, she's a coupe. Hey Gary, I would think the floor mounted station selector would be a bit of a rare option these days.

Welcome to the group from the land downunder.

Hello Gary, great find on your car, keep the history alive.  I have fenders, hood, doors but not a trunk lid. The lid I have has some rust. 

It looks like you have a coupe?  Hard to tell from the angle of the shot.    Shoot me an email;  russ85747@hotmail.com   I have a shipper that can handle the shipping too.

63 guidematic issues

Posted by maurice lapoiinte on November 24, 2019 at 3:10pm 0 Comments

 So my 63 guide matic headlamps stay on low beam all the time. I have so far bypassed the system and everything works normal. I have been thru the trouble shooting in the manual but this is where the confusion begins.on my car when the power relay is powered I have low beam and when its not powered I have highbeam, this appears to be opposite what the diagnosis says should be correct.The wiring is all original and no wires have been mixed up.has anyone ever unplugged the 2 wire connector…

Another advantage of the Pertronix III

Posted by Doug Scarrow on November 23, 2019 at 11:12am 1 Comment

   Having tried both the II and III I can say the multispark feature of the III offers a smoother idle . It is also easier to install .Does not require removal of the distributor

Stuck at two red (dash) lights!

I hope someone can help solve these two electrical problems that appeared one after the other.

By way of background: The car, a '64 Eldorado has very limited use. It was at a restoration shop for 15 months until last January-  that supposedly did a bunch of wiring repairs including rebuilding the gas gauge that still hasn't worked properly, and the clock that hasn't worked, and re-soldering the broken wires in the drive door. All window and seat controls appear to be…
