Happy Thanksgiving to all of our 1963/64 Cadillac Chapter & Website Members!

Earlier Fall Picture with 'Dino'

I just wanted to wish all of our US members and any others that celebrate Thanksgiving a very Happy Thanksgiving. I'm thankful for many things in my life, especially our Cadillac Chapter and Website and the many friends I have made over the years thru our Cadillac Connection. I have missed all the CLC Carolina Region meet-ups and the once a year Grand National Chapter Meet-Up this past year due to COVID, but the word on the street is the vaccines are coming and there will be better days to meet-up and kick the Cadillac Tires. I've always been an optimist and think how dire things would have been if COVID had hit say in the 1980's or sometime before the Internet. At least we have our website which provides us instant connection. Look for a December Newsletter within the next 2 weeks that will feature Larry Rees' 1964 deVille Convertible, used extensively in the Lifetime Channel's now airing movie "Christmas on Wheels".   If you have Lifetime Channel you can check it out at this link https://www.mylifetime.com/movies/christmas-on-wheels

Everyone stay safe and have a fantastic Thanksgiving tomorrow!!

Hey everyone,  how sensitive should the power brakes be?  I have just rebuilt the power booster and  replaced the master cylinder. The pedal doesn’t have any resistance so I have to be very gentle so…Continue

I was questioning if my 63 was shifting into 4th , so I installed a tach and don't notice a 3-4 shift. Cruising at 70 the RPM is at 2600. Sounds high.  Has anyone noted RPM's at highway speeds?. I…Continue

Torque converter grab when idling in Drive

Posted by Cliff Johnston on June 14, 2021 at 8:47pm 0 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


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…

I just wanted to say a thank you to Kurt for steering me to the tech tips page on V.I.N. locations.  Excellent information.  Thanks a bundle.

V.I.N. where?

Posted by Robert Pellow on April 18, 2021 at 1:41pm 6 Comments

Where can I find the V.I.N. on a 63 convertible?  The usual space at the base of the interior windshield on the driver's side has been decimated by weather.
