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.
