At the 2024 Grand National - Pat Westphal's 1964 de Ville Convertible

Here is our 5th look back at 1963/64 Cadillac Chapter member Cadillacs at the 2024 CLC Grand National in Gettysburg - PAT WESTPHAL'S 1964 de VILLE CONVERTIBLE.

Pat's convertible was featured in our March 2023 Newsletter which you can check out by Clicking Here.  Since purchasing the car in 2021 he has worked hard tackling several wiring and other issues to make the car road worthy.   Pat has driven the car on the Woodward Dream Cruise and last year's CLC National Driving tour, not to mention his appearance at this year's Grand National.   This is definitely a driver Cadillac that Pat is going to enjoy for years to come.  It should also be noted that Pat worked for GM in engineering at Clark Street in Detroit then at the Milford Proving Grounds after the Clark Street building was shut down in 1994.  Be sure to check out  more on his story and his convertible via the newsletter link.

Hi Pat,

     I saw the pictures that Jason posted from the Grand National and I also had a chance to see your convertible at the hotel.  It looked sharp and never looked like you drove it all the way from Michigan.  It is a beauty!

Loud air moving sound within carb with cleaner removed

Posted by Dave Fehrle on March 23, 2024 at 3:23pm 8 Comments

While checking my Carter carb with engine running, I took the air cleaner off and there was a very loud hissing sound of air. I placed a piece of paper over the carb and it didn’t move up or down, is this normal?

Vintage Air AC

Posted by Chase on March 21, 2024 at 5:55am 0 Comments

Hey everyone, has anybody done a Vintage Air AC/Heat setup in their car? I want to bypass the old vacuum setup and go with a Vintage Air Gen 2 model. Before I get started, does anyone have any experience with this? (Which model to go with, do’s and dont’s, etc.) It looks pretty involved. Any and all info/pics would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Who rebuilds original AC  accumulator dryers for 1964 Cadillac?

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…
