Nothing right now as far as a 63 with good rear trunk area. Sounds like Russ has what you need.

Hey Jason did u get a chance to read my post this morning in regards to to trunk

The tag says 6357. Man thank you for being such a blessing to all of us. I"m 45 years old I just realized I want to flip Cadillacs for a living after all these years. I just have to stop thinking so much and go for it

There are no  "60 Coupe"s in 1963. There is a 6039 Fleetwood Sixty Special Body style.  A 6357 is a Coupe DeVille, which is considered a "DeVille" body series body style or sometimes referred to as a 63 series body style. 

It is best to refer it as a 1963 Coupe DeVille, or 1963 6357 body style. There is no chance of confusing it with any of the other 11 body styles in 1963.

I have a 63 series 60 coupe 6357. I hope this helps

James, It helps all of us to be specific on the body style. As seen above not only are the 1963's and 1964's interiors quite different, but they are different between the body series (e.g. Series 62 vs DeVille vs Eldo & Fleetwood vs Series 75).

Hey Jason how are you. Hey I have to cars as of now I just recently purchased a 6357 series coupe that I was inquiring about
Comment by Jason Edge on August 28, 2014 at 7:01pm

--> The 6357 is a Coupe DeVille. A 2 door hard top body style.
--> Under your profile you list that you have a 1963 Convertible. That would include the 6267 Series 62 Convertible (which actually uses the DeVille interior styling) or a 6367 Eldorado Biarritz.
So again, I'll ask which body style do you have? If unsure find your VIN #, or 4 digit body style code on the top left/driver side of the firewall/cowl then check out this page: http://6364cadillac.ning.com/profiles/blogs/bodystyles

Locking in your body style will save you a ton of time finding parts for your, car but more importantly prevent you from buying the wrong parts.

With that said:

The 6357 in my yard was a 1964 6357 CDV, which has completely different styling from the 1963 6357,.  The door panels were sold several weeks back, and seats are gone, but do have the undercarriage but again they were completely redesigned from 63 to 64.

As an example to show the difference in styling between the years, even across the same body series, below is a side by side comparison of the 1963 6357 CDV and the 1964 6357 CDV:

I have the 6357 series and and I was looking at the interior you in the white one in your yard I think I could use the rear back seat and the dash pad if they are for sale

On front bench seats --> patterns will be different between all body series (e.g. 62 series vs DeVilles, vs Eldo) for same year, and seat rail design including lower plastic finish trim, seat motor were changed from 63 to 64. In additional 62 series coupes will not have the center arm rest section where as the DeVilles/Eldos will.

On Rear upper and lower seat springs:  patterns will be different between all hard top body series (e.g. 62 series vs DeVilles, vs Eldo) for same year. Core seat springs will be the same from 63 to 64 for same body series. Convertibles will of course be very different.

Door panels are very different between body series within same year and even same body style for the different years due to the change in the styling.

For 2 door door panels you basically need the door panel for that particular body styles. For example if you have a 1963 6257 Series 62 Coupe, no other door panel is going to match up. Or, if you have a 1964 6357 Coupe DeVille, that is a unique door panel.  

I would suggest scrolling through the 1963 and 1964 Dealer data books in our Literature section to see the vast difference between body styles and model years. Here are direct links to those photo albums with the dealer data book scans:

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…
