For Sale: 1963 Convertible Window Reveal Trim Piece (passenger side)

If anyone is missing this part they are hard to come by.  Rear window passenger side reveal trim.  Selling mine because it has a few dings.  Rear half is okay but forward half has a couple small dents plus one weird area where it looks like someone jabbed at it with a nail or ice pick from underside, creating small patch of bumps on show side.  Still if you really need it here it is.  If interested, make an offer...thanks!See More

Rear Side Window Stainless Sill Removal

I'm looking to replace a piece of the stainless trim that sits on the outside of the car like a sill outside the rear passenger side window.  I can just barely see one screw at one end but does the door panel and/or window need to come out to access this?  If anyone has done this I'd like to learn what is involved.  Here's a photo of the piece I'm talking about:See More

Well, it took me 4 1/2 years to get around to putting whitewalls on the car, but I've finally done it. Couldn't stand those wretched BF Goodrich Max Load blackwalls any longer, although they handled well. These 1.5" WSW tires were only $76 from…

For sale: 1963 Cadillac front center impact bar $100 + shipping

Posted on April 3, 2018 at 2:12pm 0 Comments

Offering this newly re-chromed 1963 Cadillac front center impact bar for sale, $100 plus whatever it costs to ship it from Detroit to your location.  

The unit fits perfect on driver's side but does not sit flush on passenger side.  I am told someone needs to take a wooden block and hammer and bang the passenger side lower corner in to make it fit right.  If you know how to do this stuff, this is the piece for you.

1963 Carter Carb Mystery

Posted on May 17, 2016 at 11:30am 6 Comments

Last weekend, I was trying (vainly) to remove the blower motor cover in the engine compartment when I noticed something strange:  A black rubber hose, originating from a vacuum actuator on the passenger side of my Carter carb, that went nowhere.  The previous owner had carefully tucked the free end underneath another vacuum actuator attached to the blower motor cover.  There was a plastic nipple stuck in the free end of the hose, meaning the other end led to another hose.  I looked…

Beware OPGI Transmission Cooler Lines

Posted on May 22, 2015 at 8:30am 3 Comments

The lines sold for 1963 & 64 Cadillacs are NOT good on all cars.  Specifically, they do NOT fit Series 62 or 75 vehicles. 

The lines they sell have threaded ends/screws on both ends.  Refer to your shop manuals and you will see this is NOT the correct fitting for the transmission ends.  A complicated setup involving beaded tube endings and sleeves with O-rings connected by rubber hose & clamps is required.

After two lengthly phone conversations with customer service it…
