Hi All,

I just wanted to take a second to give a quick review of dealing with Russ @ Caddy Shack. Firstly a little background. I purchased a '63 Coupe last fall and went through it to see what parts I needed to get the project going this spring. I contacted Russ and he had everything I needed. It took some time and a lot of communication back and forth to get all the parts I needed. Russ was more than patient with me and allowed me to take some time to get a proper list going. He put parts aside and added to the pile as I went along. Not once did he rush me or push me to finalize the deal. As long as we had a good flow of communication then that was good enough for him. When it came time to pay there was a discrepancy about whether a certain part was included in the initial quote. He supplied it anyways with no hesitation. 

I know Russ, along with Jason, are pillars in our community but I thought I would give a shout out. For a first time restorer and buyer of these parts Russ made it extremely easy. If anyone ever has doubts or second guesses about buying from Russ all I can say is don't hesitate. You will not be disappointed!Cheers,

Greg

I'll second that shout out to both Russ and Jason. I've dealt with both of them and have received excellent service and fair pricing. There are some parts that we could spend endless hours looking for even with the Internet and they usually have them ready to go. That along with any advice that's needed. This is one of the better forums that I've perused and enjoy coming back.

Russ and Jason are both really stand up guys. I own 11 different classic cars and have found this website to be outstanding. Thanks for all of the help Jason and Russ

Hey Russ, that's gotta be worth a discount on the next lot of goods to Spain.

I'm in Australia and received some stuff from Russ just yesterday. Russ and Jason are the heroes of Caddy parts, that's for sure. 

Spain is a beautiful country, and when I go back I will make a trip to see Joan and his family for sure.

Thanks again , Russ . You have a friend for ever here .

The message for Russ , was write on the box that Russ send me .
This is the other pic.

Joan, I almost felt like crying when I saw that picture. Must have made you sick at the time. Glad to see it worked out well for you.

Thanks for your coments . Clovis

Joan. I have a fender for a 64 deville convertable. It has a little rust at the base. Only reason i pulled it was i got my vehicle with a left NOS fender. If you would like it i will offer it to you free if you pay for shipping. Jon

Thank you very much Jon ,You are very kind . One of the things i´ve learned is 63 fender is different from 64 ( front , around ligth brezzel ) . Fortunatelly , the car was already repaired.

Sorry, i dind´t explane this was a year and a half ago.

Hello I've been restoring a 63 for way to many years. Down to almost done, but have issue with trans linkage, when column in park shift rod 2 inches short. everything original. been trying to find picture of manual rod hooked up from under car to see position of linkage. was wondering if anybody has access for pictures. I wanted to see if my manual linkage is bent  wrong out of the trans if somebody dropped the trans or something. Doesn't make sense why it doesn't work. Thanks for any input…

Torque converter grab when idling in Drive

Posted by Cliff Johnston on June 14, 2021 at 8:47pm 2 Comments

Hi Everyone, been quite a while since i have been on here.

I have had an issue with the idle on my 64 Coupe Deville ever since i have had it.

With the Idle set high enough that it is smooth, but still a nice idle, the RPM seems only slightly too high for the stall of the Torque Converter. And therefore it tends to sit there and grab and lunge a bit. So until now, i have been putting the car in Neutral at the lights to stop this happening.

I've had the car dyno tuned and…

Can you help? Driveshaft Question....

Posted by Chris on May 30, 2021 at 8:55am 1 Comment

Hello!

Newbie to the group here - we have already found tons of invaluable information on the board, so thanks! We are restoring a 1963 Series 62 Convertible. We are wondering if anyone knows of a source to buy the propellor yoke flange (that bolts to the pinion flange) for the driveshaft? One of our ears partially broke off. Not sure if we can buy just the yoke flange as an aftermarket part, or if it has to be rebuilt by a welder/fab guy? Maybe a salvage yard for a source? Again, any…
