I had to replace the aluminum timing cover for my 64 429. I did it last year and it was tough to find a cover with the exact number on the lower part of the cover. Finally managed to locate one but there are…"
Just as I had done last December with the standard 1963 Cadillacs magazine ads, I have started scanning my 1964 Cadillac Ads, and will post here one by one, then combine into a single photo album and point to from our Ads link in the header. When I am done perhaps there will be some I am missing... maybe not. FIRST UP for 1964 is one you were more likely to find in the ladies magazines like this…See More
"I have not dealt with Cadillac Kings much, but i have had good experiences with them on the few transactions we did do.
I have a 64 timing cover for 250.00 plus shipping. The oil pump well is in good shape and the pump shaft hole mic check within…"
"Thanks Jason, for the pix and info.
Today, I ordered the two hoses that Caddy Daddy has on their site. Since they have that red '64 Eldo project car, I'm hoping they'd have the correct hoses.
BTW: The existing hoses on my…"
I'm looking to freshen up a few thing on the 429, and am looking for sources of the timing cover. I.m new to the Cadillac world and have found that the Cadillac King sells a refurbished timing cover, just wondering if someone had any experience with them and or any other source. I searched back on this site and didn't find any info when people asked similar questions. Thank you very much.See More
"The original Power Steering Hose for 1964 was Parts Group 6.670, Part No 599 2602 per 1965 Master Parts Book. It lists 2 numbers for 1963, but says to use this part # when prior # (569 0579) was depleted ... just one of many midyear part #…"
"Just a quick trick on the crimped in light sockets. First, Mike is correct, they lose contact from corrosion over the years. The quick fix, which I have found has lasted over a decade on my 64 CDV, is to turn the bulb base back and forth so you wear…"
"Neither of my cornering lights were working when I purchased my '63 Coupe de Ville. I'm pretty good with electrical so I thought it would be a super easy issue to fix. It wasn't. MANY hours later, I realized that the light bulb…"

My '64 Eldo's high-pressure P/S hose sprung a leak, so I want to change it (and the low-pressure hose.) My car is concours-level restored, so keeping as close to the stock fitment and appearance is…Continue
Neither of my cornering lights are working. I started by focusing on drivers side. I removed the entire assembly and cleaned it up, replaced the wire to the socket, cleaned and lubricated the socket…Continue
Who rebuilds original AC accumulator dryers for 1964 Cadillac? I have been on Classic auto air in Tampa FL wait list for over a year , There is one on Old air products web site that looks very similar to the original # 21-4214A but states it fits 1962 Gm cars, The one recommended for a 1964 Cadillac is half the length 21-4215A What is everyone using ? I would prefer to be as original as possible. Thanks
My son, unbeknownst to me, had all three of the horns on our 1963 Eldorado completely restored. We had recently added the Eldorado trumpet horn to the two standard horns and the sound was not very good... we had heard good ones so we knew something was not right... but there was not much we could do to get better sound from the 3 horns.
There is a restoration service called The Horn Works who my son…
