I have seen several examples of 63 and 64 restored motors and engine compartments; including Jason Edge' beautiful pics of his motor, on our website here. I am an advocate of saving the life of these old Cadillacs. To me this means returning the car to its original glory. That said, using the correct colors in the correct places is important to me.
I have seen examples of power steering pumps in black and Cadillac blue, I have seen examples of vented and non vented pulleys in black and Cadillac blue.
I recently received a fantastiic original power steering pump from Jason Edge (Thank you jason!) I want to paint it, but i am unsure of the correct combo of colors to use on the pulley, the pump housing, and the bracket. I would love it if some of our members would be willing to post pics of their engine compartments so that we can all get an idea of what "looks good" and what is "correct."

Brian. Yeah, I could have just said either black or blue, vented or non-vented will look correct but you would wonder what I was smoking! LOL That is one item that seems to jump around through the course of the production year!

Brian, I would definitelh suggest that others contribute their pictures. I have over the course of pulling in 43 parts cars and owning 5 driver 63's and 64's formulated some idea about the power steering pumps.

Click Here for a list of engine colors used.  NOTE the special section on Power Steering pumps and pulleys. That is one area that seemed to change between the colors and pulley used. As long as you paint the pump and pulley Cadillac Blue or Black and use the pressed on solid or vented pulley, I think you would be safe to consider it original... at least have pictures on file to back you up!

Also, here are some example pictures I have:

Dash removal

Posted by Jake Mickley on October 9, 2019 at 12:06am 9 Comments

Hello everyone,

On a 63 CDV, if a guy wanted to remove the entire dash to get all the metal painted, and do some other things behind there, how would he go about doing that?  I checked here and the shop manual, but can't find a complete guide.

As always, and help or direction is appreciated.  Thanks!


Introducing myself

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…
