Our Next Newsletter feature - Bob Schles' 1964 Fleetwood Eldorado

Our next 1963/64 Cadillac Chapter Newsletter will feature Bob Schles' 1964 Fleetwood Eldorado and includes a story that takes us through his "nine-month engine rebuilding adventure". Here is an interesting preview of car and owner with Bob in the engine bay posing with his forward lamp harness in hand. Look for this feature story and our next newsletter by Mid-November.

Always great to see '64 Eldos profiled.  

I know of one in SoCal that I don't think you've covered..hint....hint. 

I have a 100% open door policy regarding featuring 1963/64 Cadillac Chapter Member cars! I have Bob's car to feature but after that nothing, zilch, nada. I am begging members to submit their car for a cover feature story. All I need is a write-up and a few decent pictures. Write-up can be on any angle on the car, from history of the car to a restoration project like Bob's, or just some nice pictures and general info about the car. When you are ready to submit send to my email at jasonedge64@outlook.com. 

I also don't care which body style whether you have a 6 window Series 62 sedan beater or an Eldo show queen.  My goals is to feature all members cars but with 377 current members I'm guessing we have about 350 to go!!!!

I have just about completed inserting Bob Schles excellent article and many pictures in our next newsletter which will feature his 1964 Eldorado and 9-month engine rebuild, and thought I would give a sample of pictures that made me smile - the before and after pictures of his transmission. Here is an example of a 60 year old transmission that was looking pretty rough with the crud and grease restored to like new.

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

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…

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…
