I recently brought in an original, unrestored 1963 Indiana license plate and posted on another thread and it was suggested we post pictures of our vintage, antique or personalized plates we run on our 1963/64 Cadillacs. 

I will start this off by showing a full rear shot of my 64 Coupe de Ville with an original 1964 North Carolina license plate.  In NC you can run a correct vintage plate as long as you keep the current license plate and registration in the car. Unlike some states they are not linked.  My plate is like new and believe it was restored.  I bought it so long ago now I can't remember!

If you have a unique plate on your 63/64 Caddy please share! Maybe we will run these in a future newsletter.

Here is my Personal Plate


Nice! ... indeed!

If you go up in my office you will see these 1963 and 1964 North Carolina license plates. In NC they alternated between black background with yellow lettering and orange background with black lettering. You could definitely tell the difference between the years unlike today with the little sticker in the corner.

If you read the article about my '64 Eldo in a recent newsletter, then you've already seen this photo. If you haven't, that's me as a Cadillac-loving 6-year-old next to my mom's just-months-from-new '64 CdV.  

When I bought the Eldo, I wanted to have that same license plate sequence on it.  So, it's now nostalgic fun to see "Mom's license plates" on my Eldorado.  And, she would love that.  OME708 lives on!


About 21 years ago I registered my car as an antique and received my specialty plates from the State of Texas (pic below). I was not thrilled with look of those plates so decided to try the find some year of manufacture plates which are legal to be registered to antique or classic cars here. I bid on 2 different sets of 1963 Texas plates hoping I might win one set. I wound up winning both sets. The best set was fresh from the prison factory still in package with the paper in between them (pic below). I think I paid $20 for one set & $25 for the other. Boy have things changed! It looks like "virgin" plates are going for 10X that these days.

Delaware doesn’t allow custom plates to start with a number. Fortunately no one else in the state has a 64 Cadillac plate. 


Here is mine! I actually have 2, the other is on my car and not in as good of shape. This one is the significantly cooler one as it is still in the original envelope and has the divider paper with a pretty cool graphic!

The center cap on my 63 wagon came off and ruined the valve stem. But a quick tow back to White Post Resto for a new stem and a gouge removal got us back on the road! Both wagons made it.Continue

Loud air moving sound within carb with cleaner removed

Posted by Dave Fehrle on March 23, 2024 at 3:23pm 8 Comments

While checking my Carter carb with engine running, I took the air cleaner off and there was a very loud hissing sound of air. I placed a piece of paper over the carb and it didn’t move up or down, is this normal?

Vintage Air AC

Posted by Chase on March 21, 2024 at 5:55am 0 Comments

Hey everyone, has anybody done a Vintage Air AC/Heat setup in their car? I want to bypass the old vacuum setup and go with a Vintage Air Gen 2 model. Before I get started, does anyone have any experience with this? (Which model to go with, do’s and dont’s, etc.) It looks pretty involved. Any and all info/pics would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Who rebuilds original AC  accumulator dryers for 1964 Cadillac?

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…
