Here is a list of links to my 2012 Engine Rebuild Project and various Other Restoration Projects and thought it might be helpful to pull them all together and post on our Restoration Forum.  See links below:

I often get asked about my history with the 64 Cadillac and the March 2014 Newsletter article I did featuring the 50th birthday of my 64 Coupe de Ville put's it all together rather nicely. I keep a PDF version on my iPhone and thought I would share here.   To check it out click on Jason's Story from March 2014 Newsletter.pdf

Beautiful job.

Thanks, It's crazy that it has been 8 years! Needs a bit of freshening up but has held up well.

My '64 Eldo's high-pressure P/S hose sprung a leak, so I want to change it (and the low-pressure hose.) My car is concours-level restored, so keeping as close to the stock fitment and appearance is…Continue

accumulator dryer

Posted by CHRIS CARLSON on December 6, 2023 at 10:54am 0 Comments

Who rebuilds original AC  accumulator dryers for 1964 Cadillac? I have been on Classic auto air in Tampa FL wait list for over a year ,  There is one on Old air products web site that looks very similar to the original # 21-4214A but states it fits 1962 Gm cars, The one recommended for a 1964 Cadillac is half the length 21-4215A    What  is everyone using ? I would prefer to be as original as possible. Thanks

'63 Eldorado trumpet horn + 2 standard horns restoration

Posted by Les Eastling on November 15, 2023 at 10:34am 1 Comment

My son, unbeknownst to me, had all three of the horns on our 1963 Eldorado completely restored. We had recently added the Eldorado trumpet horn to the two standard horns and the sound was not very good... we had heard good ones so we knew something was not right... but there was not much we could do to get better sound from the 3 horns. 

There is a restoration service called The Horn Works who my son…

The insulator…
