Other Info:  Tires and wheels are probably worth more than I paid for the car, it runs and drives.  Doesn't stop to easy....  need to look into that asap.  somethings leaving red tranny fluid on my floor so need to get it up and see what's goin on.  Oh and it needs a drivers side exhaust manifold, this one's cracked.  It will always be a rat rod as long as I own it.  Red interior is a bit worn, but with some red covers will be just fine.

  • Owner:  Mark Geertsma
  • Model Year & Body Style: 1963 4-window Sedan de Ville (6339)
  • When Purchased: July 2009   
  • Miles:  72.000
  • Color:  Basildon Green / Aspen White 
  • Other Info: Imported to The Netherlands from California in 1995 after a quick and dirty paint job (in the wrong color). I suspect the car sat abandoned for many years in a field or junkyard in a dry/windy area before it was rescued, as the right side windows, bumper ends and chrome trim were all matte, like lightly sandblasted. I purchased the car from its second Dutch owner and have replaced/rebuilt many, many parts over the years to make the car technically sound and reliable. After everything (up to the rear cigarette lighters) was working again as should, I eventually had the car painted back to its original Basildon Green. Only thing still left to be done is reupholster the seats with the original leather/cloth combination.

Owner:  Jeremy LeBlanc      
Model Year & Body Style: 1963 Coupe de Ville convertible
When Purchased: 2017       
Miles: 18 
Color:   Firemist red
Other Info: Late last year the original 390 engine lost its battle against time and my desire for a daily driver.  I was able to convince Rob and Jerry at TenTen Auto in Apex, NC to dive in and do whatever it took to fit a 2019 LS2 L96 from a brand new Silverado with its matched 6L90 six-speed auto transmission into the old girl's frame so that I really could drive my dream every day.  No small task, as we would learn, and we did everything in our power to keep the instrumentation and cabin all original. Brought her back home on this past Thursday.  For my one picture I thought I'd share a look under the hood.  My profile pic is of the rest of her.

  • Owner:         Richard Stanley
  • Model Year & Body Style:    1964 Fleetwood Eldorado
  • When Purchased:         Inherited from original owner in 1995
  • Miles:            about 53,000
  • Color:           Aspen White
  • Other Info:  This image was taken along Route 1 in Big Sur driving home from Pebble Beach in 1999. I took it to “car week” more than once, but never to show at the Concours, which is far too elite to invite a mere production car, even one that saw just 1,870 examples produced. However, I did show it at the very fun, come-one-come-all Pacific Grove rally, which used to wind through Carmel and environs. Throngs of locals and car nuts would line the route to cheer the cars on. We got an especially enthusiastic reception one year, as every seat in “MARIAN” was filled with a BIG guy. People were amazed that cars used to be able to hold so many people in relative comfort, though I wouldn’t want to drive to New York that way.
    The shot shows off the quality original details: real chrome, real leather, real wood. The car still looks the same, even though I don’t.

  • Owner:         Brooke Russo
  • Model Year & Body Style:    1963 Series 62 Convertible
  • When Purchased:         December 1962 by my parents
  • Miles:            150,000
  • Color:            Palomino
  • Other Info:   

My parents purchased this car while it was still on the truck in front of St. Claire Cadillac in Santa Clara, CA.  I drove it all through high school and college.  It finished its restoration October 2018.  We are enjoying "Bessie" since she's returned.   License plate (not shown) is a vanity plate with my mom's initials, LMR (apparently she had connections back in the day).     It's a sentimental vehicle as my mom used to take me to Santa Cruz with my cousins with the top down and we'd slide all over the back seat going over the hill and squealed with delight; she took those turns on two wheels!

When Purchased: 1980
Miles: 104k
Color: Firemist red on black
Other Info: My father bought it in '80 and had it restored over several years. Painted using lacquer in the original color combination, and it still runs great. Has every option including cruise and bucket seats. Unfortunately I don't get it out enough nowadays and am thinking about selling it to someone who has more time to enjoy it...

Owner: Tim Coy        
Model Year & Body Style: 1963 6329 Six-Window Sedan de Ville   
When Purchased: September 4, 1963, brand new by my grandmother        
Miles: ~59,700           
Color: Palomino Tan, Sandalwood interior           
Other Info: I was entering kindergarten when my grandmother traded in her Mountain Laurel 1957 Sedan de Ville and bought this beauty. Once I obtained my driver's license, I drove Elizabeth Potter everywhere in this car, receiving a speeding ticket with her riding shotgun. I took this car to my senior prom, and my date remembered the car better than me at our 20-year reunion.

When my grandmother died in 1993, she left me the car in her will. I joined the CLC in March 1994 to learn more about the car. This club is like a family to me, and the wealth of information is amazing. The engine compartment burned in a fire in 2008, and I spent over $50,000 bringing it back to where it was. The car is and was too sentimental to let it go. The interior is still original, as is the paint on the inside of the trunk lid.

It was featured on the cover of the August 2013 The Self-Starter, the issue that celebrated the 50th anniversary of the 1963 Cadillacs. It has won Second Place and Third Place in Primary at CLC Grand Nationals. Hopefully, it will finally get a First Place at the 2021 Grand National in Albuquerque, N.M.

  • Color: Sky Blue
  • The original owner of the car approached my grandfather to sell it for him.  Grandpa put it on the side lot with a for sale sign, and my brother saw it one weekend when he went there to work for the weekend.  They struck a deal for $200.  He worked every weekend to pay it off and when he graduated high school, my brother got the car and the money.  I inherited the car when he went off to college.  I started fixing it up then.  I was 17.  I was driving home from college one weekend and was run off the road by a semi-tractor and rolled her.  Not a good day.  She was stuck behind the garage until several years later I found a junker, cut the roof off and had it welded on. The car then stayed in storage for my entire military career.  I got her out three years ago, and am slowly bringing her back.

  •        Model yr and body style: 1964 Coupe deville
  •         Purchased: 2008 from Victoria , Ca.
  •        Miles; 79,000
  •        Color: Spruce blue
  •                    This car is all original with the 429 and one urethane repaint in 2012.  Purchased on ebay with intent to resell but I am a big car guy and I love the soft ride and smooth lines of the 60's Cadillacs . These cars are getting rarer to find in nice condition so I expect to keep it a while.Love the website by the way. Jason does a great job with the forum and club.

Owner: Dan Reed
Model Year & Body Style: 1964 Series 62 Four Window Sedan
When Purchased: 2019
Miles: 110,000 
Color: Beacon Blue

This was a one owner car until I purchased it in 2019. I have a friend in the CLC who actually came across it at a local estate sale, so $2500 later I have a good driving, comfortable Cadillac sedan to cruise in. I completely replaced the brake system front to back as well as a number of the usual tune-up items such as belts, hoses, water pump, re-core radiator. Its not a show car because it does show its age, but I love getting behind the wheel and hitting the road.

  • Color: Ebony
  • Other Info My father bought the car from Arnold Palmer in Charlotte, NC 2/76 because he loved the body style but rarely drove it, gave it to my brother 5/98 who used it in his wedding and I purchased from my brother 8/13 after it sat in a warehouse neglected for way to long. She is a family member with many fond memories. I used to take her out at age 15 when my parents would go out for dinner (unbeknownst to them) and do things with and to her that I would never do today. She will be left to my daughter or her children.

Owner: Graham Macdonald
Model Year & Body Style: 1964 Sedan de Ville
When Purchased: August 2017
Miles: 51,000
Colour: Nevada Silver

Other Info: My first Cadillac and indeed my first American car, came from New York and imported to England in 2015. Spent a long time in Denver according to the history file. I've owned lots of classic cars over the past 40 plus years and always wanted a '60's American. It took me a long time to finally get one, this car is a revelation! It doesn't feel anything like it's size to drive, which is a good thing on our country
