Is there supposed to be carpet inside the '64 Eldo center console?

There is carpet in mine, and it's a deeper pile than what's on the floor (which has probably been replaced.)

Here's some pix of mine.  Thoughts? 

Thanks,  Van

According to the option spec manual, yes it is carpeted. I would expect Ken to have it no other way than original  : )

Thanks for the reply, Kurt.  Just relearning my '64 trivia.    

Did the console carpet originally match the type, weight and style of carpet as on the floor of the '64 Eldos? 

Sorry, don't know the answer to that. Also to note, my option spec manual is for 1963 (Narra wood, not Baku). This would be a good trivia question for Jason to post to the forum. We haven't had one for a while : )

I looked at some of my stock photos of consoles and they appear to match the floor covering carpet. Keep in mind that either could have been changed out over the years. Looking at our Carpet Help Page, the 64 Eldo originally came with  Tremont quality, rayon-nylon, cut pile.

Thanks Jason.  My mom drove a new '64 CdV back in the day,  and my best friend's dad had a '63 Eldo. Neither car had buckets seats/console, but I recall the carpet in his Eldo being deeper pile and softer than in my mom's car.  (Yes, I obsessed over car details like that, at age 5.) Your Carpet Help Page confirmed that for me. 

Is any vendor making the exact correct Tremont cut pile? Every 1964 repro carpet I've ever seen has the nap not as thick/plush as I remember. 

Thanks, Van

My ‘64 Eldorado has luxurious pile carpet inside too.  

Im not sure, but my 64 Eldorado does have some at the bottom.


Okay, I think I figured it out.  

The original carpet on the bottoms of my car's bucket seats matches the carpet in the center console.

So, logic would tell me that those are true and original. 

The carpet on the floor in my car has obviously been changed.  Does anyone have a source for exact reproduction Tremont quality floor carpet for '64s?  Or maybe some NOS stuff hidden away?

'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…
