Hello all,

I haven't been on the forum for quite a while and do wish you all well. I would like to thank all of you who have purchased replacement rear trailing arms from me in the past. I realize that there are still customers out there for this product but I am at a bit of a cross roads. I would like to continue but over the last 4 years the cost for machining and waterjet services as well as steel have gone up and my price hasn't changed.

I would like to increase my price to $420 from $385 but would also have them powder coated. I am about to start making the next batch and would like some input before going forward. 

Thanks,

Dan

Hello Dan I hope you continue providing trailing arms. I plan to order a pair later this year

Jan

I have them on my own 63. Such an improvement. The pinion angle vibration is gone.  I can feel the difference in the ride quality. It took some of the boat sway away and gave an improved ride. 

I also have the inserts that go into the stock trailing arm, for those who want the stock look when looking underneath.   I was gong to install them on my other 63, but that car was sold. 

My 2 cents; worth the time and money.

Hi Russ,

Thanks for the input. I am looking at having the machine shop take over the complete manufacturing process from start to finish. It is getting to be a bit of a chore as I have had a few health issues lately and off loading the manufacturing and powder coating will take a burden off me. I don't plan on shuffling off any time soon but if I did, I would like to leave something that my daughters could manage and keep the product alive.

Cheers,

Dan

1963 & 1965 Distributor

Posted by Martin McKercher on November 9, 2021 at 8:34pm 5 Comments

Hi all
I am looking to have an aftermarket distributor made for these year models.
I have fitted a Holley Sniper to my 63' 390 & want the Sniper to control the timing.

This is in the very early stages so I am looking to see if it is viable.
I understand the purists might see this as sacrilgious but the Sniper has made my car soo much better for me.
I am asking to see if there is any interest?

What is the color of this 63 Eldorado - aquamarine or green?

Posted by SK on October 24, 2021 at 2:33pm 2 Comments

Hi, 

I really like the color combination of this 63 Eldorado (sold long time ago by Volocars).

The ad states aqua exterior and green interior but unfortunately there is no pic on the cowl tag.   

Is the exterior color ’Frost aquamarine’ and interior ’Beryl’?

Or is the exterior green, ’Frost green’ and interior ’Emerald’?

Hello,  would anybody be able to tell me if I’m using the correct gasket on my Rochester throttle body? It doesn’t  look right to me.  I’m not sure if the carb actually ran with this gasket because I got it used with no history.  Any help would be appreciated …
