Congratulations —-on owning the new to you 64 Classic Antique Cadillac DeVille convertible
I am so very sure the car will be opening new sources of crazy fun out on the road
The attention and commotion my car car causes when out on the road is Priceless
The smile on my face and the fun I have being behind the wheel of that car is the real joy of my own Cadillac story
If nobody was paying attention I am still having the time of my life rolling down the road in the open air top down enjoying nature and getting a tan — looking very healthy
I truly believe that this car is a joy that my wife and myself just love so much that it has been an asset to our marriage of 46 years and still counting ( we are both from Car Crazy families - the car gene ! )
Hello! Very nice ,TY for the warm welcome! Yep, still waiting on transport from out of state which is killing me. But, I've been looking for over a year for the right '64 so a couple of weeks more shouldn't matter! I'm going to have it out in front of my western store as much as I feel won't age it too rapidly and will use it in our local parades. Glad you enjoy yours so much, I anticipate the same experience!
Don't think these cars came with alarm systems, gps or anti-theft thingys. :-) But I could be wrong...
Easiest and cheapest solution is to install a hidden kill-switch between the ignition and coil. Modern thieves won't find it as its not in an app. Maybe try to locate a good steering wheel lock as well.
You might already have found the best page on this site, but if not find Help above and click on it. Have fun.
Thx Anders-yeah, my list of the best kill switches is growing. Appreciate the help
I was in my mid 20’s when my Dad got the 64 Cadillac convertible off the showroom floor in my picture to the left now turn key in my garage top down always used on a nice day basis ( now 2021 )
Not sure why but alarm systems on cars were not the norm and there use developed over the later years
I am pretty sure a factory alarm was not an option in our years
The GPS did not exist until many years later
I carry a chain and paddle lock in the trunk and pull the coil wire and lock the hood down any time I park the car in a place in question which I try to avoid at all costs and is very very seldom in my own case
A means of tracking the car like LoJack or others available today might be one of the better solutions to track the car down with a good chance to be getting it back in one piece — maybe !
Just some options
TY- yep, looking for after market ideas that won’t interfere with the all original status of this car. Good suggestions, thx
