The 64 - 429 Cadillac gas engine —-is a special unique torque monster ! !

The 64 Cadillac gas engine is a torque monster —with 480 ft lbs of toque at 3000 RPMs 

Out of curiosity I looked up my 409 dual quad  425 HP  race engines   specs and it has only 425 ft lbs of torque at 4200 RPMs 

Torque is that feeling of power that you feel in the seat of your pants when rolling off a stop light and a very big part of the joyful driving experience of owning a 64 429 engine in our very fine year Cadillacs 

Even the larger cubic inch engines that Cadillac put into its newer car ( up to 500 cu in ) do not have these  kind of torque numbers 

TORQUE is an addictive driving experience I have been told—  and a very big part of the exceptional driving experience that our year Cadillacs afford there very lucky owners 

That driving experience in addition to  the very exceptional  engineering —materials used  -luxury creature comforts and iconic looks ( the fined thing ) make these Cadillacs that we own on this site something very very special that we have the good fortune to be experiencing every time we get behind the wheel of these very exciting Cadillacs 

These  very high torque numbers —are a big part of the  very enjoyable  unique driving experience our very special  Cadillacs afford us as owners of these fine machines in our  sites years 
Driving my 64 429 has always been a very special experience and the unique torgue the engine produces is a ——BIG PART of that experience - making it very special  

So gets yours out on the road —-and drive it ——-ALREADY ! ! 

Enjoy

Posted by Curtis Dover on January 2, 2023 at 5:23pm 0 Comments

Hey guys, I need some help.  Could someone send me some pictures on how the first hood release lever on a factory 1964 Cadillac is set up, where it comes though the grille. Not the secondary one. I need to know where the thumb or finger position is located through the grille. Is it above or below the center grille molding piece? Mine seems to be positioned behind the center molding piece and will not adjust above or below the molding. I have a wire tied to it to release it…

Available parts

Posted by Thomas Reichenberger on October 13, 2022 at 11:47pm 0 Comments

Caddy members, I’m upgrading my 64 2-door coupe deville.

motor guy lost my block (machine shop went under) so I’m replacing motor & tranny with LS conversion. I have motor parts (other than block) for 429, rebuilt transmission, converter, and too many other motor parts not needed with fully dressed LS going in.

Email me (Tom.reichenberger@ipsper.com) or call me (210-739-4854) if you’re interested…..I live in San Antonio, TX.

thanks, TX…

Trunk Open and Lock Mechanism is in Closed Position

Posted by Chris Anderson on September 13, 2022 at 7:14pm 7 Comments

While working on my trunk lock on 64 Cadillac, I mistakenly closed the locking mechanism while the trunk was open.  Is there an easy way to manually release the lock back to the open position?

Thanks.
