Question: would a 64 Coupe Deville originally be equipped with cut pile carpet or nylon loop? Looking to replace me carpet, but the carpet on the lower rear front seat seems to be cut pile. I prefer the loop look, but I'm trying to keep it original looking. Any discussion?

The 62 Series cars got the cheaper loop type. The deVilles and up got cut pile.

I've never been able to find a source making the exact Tremont style cut pile we need.

Has anyone here?  

I tried for quite some time to find cut pile carpet for my 64 Sedan De Ville and could not find anything. My carpet was not worn but it did have stains. So, I took it out had it cleaned. There is someone here in CT that does leather and vinyl repair and dye work, so he came out and dyed the carpet matching the color perfectly to one of the kicks. That was 10 years ago, and it still looks great.

I got my carpeting for my 64 convert ( cut pile ) on eBay a long time ago 

I had the rubber backing added that is optional to the backing for noise reduction and moisture protection 

Got the mats to match the carpet with the Cadillac logo placed on them 

A very nice look 

They will send you a sample of the carpet to confirm style and color 

At that time I remember the carpeting being a perfect fit and seemed inexpensive for the item

I think it was under $200 then  —-but was long ago

1964 power steering sector rebuild

Posted by CHRIS CARLSON on March 20, 2023 at 11:32pm 3 Comments

 I'm having my steering sector rebuilt, and considering changing it from 20-1 ratio 4.2 turns lock to lock to 3.5 turns lock to lock @ 16-1 ratio, If i change from a 3 1/4" box to a 3" box i could have a 14-1 Ratio steering response would be faster, shorter distance to turn the wheel to get a response,   has anyone done this? and how do you like it? thank you

Need help with a hood latch

Posted by Curtis Dover on January 2, 2023 at 5:23pm 0 Comments

Hey guys, I need some help.  Could someone send me some pictures on how the first hood release lever on a factory 1964 Cadillac is set up, where it comes though the grille. Not the secondary one. I need to know where the thumb or finger position is located through the grille. Is it above or below the center grille molding piece? Mine seems to be positioned behind the center molding piece and will not adjust above or below the molding. I have a wire tied to it to release it…
