I'm putting the interior back in my 63 CoupeDeVille and I was hoping to add some light to the interior. I have no dome light and no lights in the sail panels. The only interior lights are in the door panels, under the dash and in the back of the front seat. I'd like to add lights in the sail panels. Can someone tell me if this was a factory option and, if so, where were the lights placed? (any pics would be appreciated) I see several suppliers providing GM sail panel lights like these - Trim Panel Lghts

I imagine I'd just run wires from the sail panel lights to the lights under the dash for power.

The de Villes did not have sail panel lights from the factory. Series 62 & Fleetwoods did have sail panel lights. You can look through the 1963 Cadillac Brochure from the "Literature" drop down above. Also look through pictures of Series 62 Coupes for an idea of where the lights are placed. I have a Coupe de Ville  also so my car is no help here. You may be able to pick up a couple of Series 62 sail panels with lights for a reasonable price too.

A few questions on the resistor wire, what color is it in the pic? The yellow/blue or black? And connecting to the ACC on the fuse box seems easiest way to go with the new switched wire, but where…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

'63 Eldorado trumpet horn + 2 standard horns restoration

Posted by Les Eastling on November 15, 2023 at 10:34am 1 Comment

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…

Here it is:

 

The main factor is the length of the ceramic insulator from the middle of the spark plug to the tip (where the spark happens)  

The insulator…
