I plan to have another 1963/64 Cadillac Chapter newsletter out by June 1 and thought I would give everyone a teaser of the next feature car. Check out the picture from above... can you ID the model year and body style?

Looks like a 1963 Fleetwood 60 Special to me.

Yep, Chapter Member Chris Wielusiewicz' 1963 Fleetwood 60 Special.

Could be the 63 Sedan DeVille 4 window that was on the sight very recently 

Truely in drop dead condition ( that’s real good !) 


Just to add regarding this car from above:

If you click to enlarge, the things that give it away include the vent window on the rear door, the c-pillar louvers, and rear window reveal trim. Dig a little deeper and you will notice the chrome trim on the ends of the rear qtr panels. There is also no side trim protruding but it is debatable how well it would be seen from this angle. It has the Guidematic phototube on the dash which was standard on 63, but moved to the LH fender tip in 64, but would have been on the dash in 64 if dealer installed. The car also has the factory installed cruise and dealer installed RH mirror and door guards but that really doesn't point out the body style as both were options on other body styles. There is a V on the hood which would be correct for a 63 Fleetwood but not a 64 Fleetwood as it picked up the wreath. I guess the most telling thing for me is the wider fatter 63 rear bumper end ... the 64 is quite thin compared to the 63. Anyway, look for a full feature on this car in our June 1963/64 Cadillac Chapter Newsletter.

63 series 60 Special.

Hello everyone. I had a perfectly good shifting Hydra-Matic transmission until I elected to fix the leak at the dip stick tube. I just did a quick seal with gasket maker since my current tube is…Continue

Rear brake lock up when cold

Hi everyone, ever since getting the car back on the road, the rear brakes grab when they are cold and I’m moving at slow speed.  Once I get along the road and stop they are fine. I see some posts…Continue

1963 series 62 convertible transmission issue

Posted by Matthew VanDeWater on June 22, 2021 at 3:03pm 1 Comment

Hello I've been restoring a 63 for way to many years. Down to almost done, but have issue with trans linkage, when column in park shift rod 2 inches short. everything original. been trying to find picture of manual rod hooked up from under car to see position of linkage. was wondering if anybody has access for pictures. I wanted to see if my manual linkage is bent  wrong out of the trans if somebody dropped the trans or something. Doesn't make sense why it doesn't work. Thanks for any input…

Torque converter grab when idling in Drive

Posted by Cliff Johnston on June 14, 2021 at 8:47pm 2 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…
