Hey Jason,

Somewhere, packed away in my car files I have an original 8x10 color transparency of that same photo.  

It was part of the 1964 Press Kit that went to magazine journalists (not a lot of those, back in '64) for publication. Judging by the size and quality of the film, it looks like an original, taken by a large-format view camera. 

Back in the '90s, I had an enlargement made and hung it on my Motor Trend office wall.

If I run across it, I'll definitely post it.  Yes, the car is Firemist Saddle. 

This picture is 12" x 18' on an odd all black paper. There was no writing on it and not sure how it was taken or printed but definitely not your stock photo paper, more like a film paper ... but not a transparency of course. It is now in a frame. 

I also have another promo picture that looks like the same car and taken at the same time but it is a smaller 4 1/2" x 9 1/2" size, and at more of an overhead angled shot. It is also has some "For Release" write-up below the picture and will scan it and the picture soon and share. 

the 64 does not have rear fender skirts?

Pretty car and great pictures

There was not fender skirt on the Eldorado. There was a fender skirt on the other body styles. 

Yep. I love the no-skirt look of the '64 Eldo.  Really gives a sportier appearance to the car. 

I always make the point to anyone who comments on my '64 Eldo that the no-skirt styling was Eldo-only, and 1964-only.  I have not met a single person (even other "Cadillac guys") who knew that detail.  

Of course, members of this site do, but it's fun trivia to tell to others.

'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…

Spark Plug Heat Range

Posted by Patrick Westphal on July 7, 2023 at 10:00am 1 Comment

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…
