Are the rear doors on other 6 window sedans the same as the Fleetwood 60 special? Obviously the door cards are different, but is that it? Steele has weatherstripping available for the rear door 6 window sedans but it doesn’t explicitly say it’s compatible with fleetwood. Any reason why it would not work?

The series 6- Fleetwood has its own door style, different from the 4 and 6 window sedans. What weatherstripping are you looking for/ I like    Same stuff, just a little bit cheaper in price. 

I am looking for the door seal. I suspect this will work but not positive:

It appears to be the same as mine, but hard to tell for sure since mine is in such poor shape. There’s no comparable version on the website for the sixty special.

Front doors;  1964 Cadillac Restoration Parts Door Seal Kit - Front - 12-165D (ru...

Rear doors; No results for the search. Only the 4 and 6 windows show up.  

Rear doors are quite different on the 4 window vs 6 window vs Fleetwood 60 special. While the standard 6 window body styles (6229, 6329) have a rear qtr window, it is incorporated into the rear upper body of the car, whereas for the Fleetwood the rear qtr window is a power vent window that is an integral part of the door. It looks like that seal would be the same until  you approach the rear upper part of the door where the shape changes.

Here is a Right Rear 4W, 6W and Fleetwood door for comparison:

Thanks Jason. 

I may have to make due with the 6 window version unless anyone else out there has a better solution for Fleetwood. Certainly someone must have run into this before?

Looks like Steele sells the rubber seal by the foot with push in clips and without:

With clips:

Without clips:

Thanks for the idea!

Now we want to see a picture of an Eldorado (6367) right rear door... Like the Lincoln Continental!

Jokes aside, OP didn't state if the car is 1963 or 64. Are there any differences between those years in way of doors?

All rear doors are different from 1963 to 1964, even across similar body styles (eg. 1963 4W to 1964 4W; 1963 6W to 1964 6W, 1963 60S to 1964 60S) due to deeper valley at top rear of rear door for the taller tail fin line down the car.

Spark Plug Heat Range

Posted by Patrick Westphal on July 7, 2023 at 10:00am 3 Comments

I found a diagram that illustrates the main factor in determining a spark plug heat range that I was trying to describe to you during the chapter get together.

Here it is:


The main factor is the length of the ceramic insulator from the middle of the spark plug to the tip (where the spark happens)  

The insulator…


Lower Front End Ball Joints

Posted by Logan Robb on May 11, 2023 at 9:04am 7 Comments

Good Morning all! 

I took the 64 into the shop to have some adjustments completed and in the process decided to have the lower ball joints replaced as was recommended the last time I had it in. I ordered the parts and came into the shop. They quoted me nearly $500 to replace those lower ball joints requiring nearly 4hrs of labor. Now this is a reputable shop and they know me by name here and they will continue to get my business. I am just questioning what on earth is…
