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,

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


I live in Spain , and i can tell my story in two pictures ....

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.
Russ really help me on this .
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.

63 guidematic issues

Posted by maurice lapoiinte on November 24, 2019 at 3:10pm 0 Comments

 So my 63 guide matic headlamps stay on low beam all the time. I have so far bypassed the system and everything works normal. I have been thru the trouble shooting in the manual but this is where the confusion begins.on my car when the power relay is powered I have low beam and when its not powered I have highbeam, this appears to be opposite what the diagnosis says should be correct.The wiring is all original and no wires have been mixed up.has anyone ever unplugged the 2 wire connector…


Another advantage of the Pertronix III

Posted by Doug Scarrow on November 23, 2019 at 11:12am 1 Comment

   Having tried both the II and III I can say the multispark feature of the III offers a smoother idle . It is also easier to install .Does not require removal of the distributor

Stuck at two red (dash) lights!

I hope someone can help solve these two electrical problems that appeared one after the other.

By way of background: The car, a '64 Eldorado has very limited use. It was at a restoration shop for 15 months until last January-  that supposedly did a bunch of wiring repairs including rebuilding the gas gauge that still hasn't worked properly, and the clock that hasn't worked, and re-soldering the broken wires in the drive door. All window and seat controls appear to be…
