My 64 history

I have the great pleasure of having my beautiful -all Becon Blue - 64 Cadillac convertible  (white top ) with AC - for 48 years ( as of 2012 )-- in my family since day ONE

The mental  picture of that car in my driveway with the top down is forever etched in my minds eye-

Have been a GM big block fan since my 1963 Chevy 409-425 HP--4 speed Super Sport racing days   ( held a track record at Islip Speedway- New York for 4 years  )

Went to a 1962 Cadillac --Black--Black top --Natural leather  interior --with optional then --AC  390 Cubic inch --time to slow it down some

I was in my  early 20's a sophmore in college --you could see people thinking --Who is that  kid ?

I enjoyed that car so much I became a Cadillac convertible fan for life

My 64 was my dads at this time

He loved my 62 so much he started to collect 62 thru 64 caddys

We had 5 converts and 4 coupes at one time all registered and ready to run

The new caddys in my family were  a new 52 hard top--new 55 convert--new 64 convert

They were used mostly for special occasions or for mom around town

You just knew you were special when you drove in those cars--they were a sign of financial success in those times

Dad mosly had foreign cars as daily drivers -- 1955--57 XK 120 Jaguars (5 of them ) -- 2002 BMW Tii-  65 Porsche 356 convert  --one of the first year VW's  in 1956 ,only 50 in the USA

1958 BMW R-50  black motorcycle

Cessna 182 4 passenger Airplane

I retired to Central West Florida with my 64 convert

I road a 1966 Triump -- Blue printed 750 -flat track racing bike for 28 years

One of my lifetime  racing buddys owned NASSAU county Long Isand N Y 's  Harley davidson--we liked high performance toys

Building and flying RC aircraft for 23 years

The weather here is auesome 10 months of the year  -- rains a bit the other two of the summer  -  no big deal but a country paradise most of the time

LIFE IS GOOD----

 Regards Tony and Ginny 429

Windshield scratch remover

Posted on December 29, 2017 at 1:40am 2 Comments

Anyone have any experience removing light scratches from our Cadillac windshields 

I thought I might need to replace my windshield but when inspected by my windshield guy he seems to feel I could get away with polishing out the scratches as they are mostly light ones 

i have no dings or deep scratches 

I would like to keep the original glass —so this idea is appealing to me 

enjoy

The Mileage reading on your speedometer

Posted on November 4, 2017 at 10:57pm 20 Comments

I hope i am not breaking anyones bubble but if you choose to remove the speedometer you can change the mileage on these cars to anything you desire it to be by just adjusting some of its internal parts and changing the numbers

That can lead to a lot of misconduct and cause you to by a car that is not correctly represented by its mileage

Just a heads up to study other aspects of the car to see if the mileage feels right for the wear and tear you may be looking at on a given… Continue

Power steering fluid change

Posted on October 23, 2017 at 3:32pm 1 Comment

In writing my thoughts on the last thread i just realized that changing the power steering fluid is not something done very often like we do all with other fluids on a timely basis

Actually i do not remember anything that adresses the changing of this fluid on a regular basis

I did draw my fluid out with an oil sucktion tool and replaced it then did that a few more times after using the car so some of mine has been freshened up in that way

Hey it could save you from having to… Continue

Good Day my friends. I' the only 64 429 Caddy on the island. I know of various other caddys 59 60 62 77. I bought mine last year and did all the basic work just to get it started. i pulled the engine out and sandblasted and rebuild the carb changed the timing gear and cam gear. i send the Valve covers to chrome in colombia. I started it after a year and had no pressure on 2 pistons. I pulled it out again and ordered the shop repair manual and going to buy the deluxe rebuild kit. So thats basicly what going on. Here in Aruba evrything is expensive to buy or get because of the import taxes and transportation fees. Sometimes its just expensive to be me. I dont know to much about mechanics and have a uncle Roy that helps me out ( generation gap). So after a year im starting to get to know my Caddy.WhatsApp%20Image%202018-04-10%20at%2011.57.37%20AM%288%29.jpeg

Hi Tony,

in town driving seems to be just fine.. I havent taken out for a longer, higher speed drive in several days, but plan to take on a 30 mile each way trip tomorrow.  I will have a better idea after that, downtown though, runs just fine.  

I was hanging at the local river bar yesterday and she was parked out front,, lots of the 50+ yuppie biker crowd, mostly friends mine, all had to go give it a walk around.. lots of nods of approval..

thanks for the check up,

have a Happy Easter.

Sincerely

Kim

Hello, I have a 1963 coupe DeVille with a 390 and I’m dropping in a 429 from a 1967 DeVille. I will cut and weld the oil pan to change locations of the sump, and probably extend the tube on the oil pick up. do you know if there is an oil pan and oil pick up tube I can use to eliminate my fabrication work?

Thank you both , have a good day

So right about a shop manual , in my case at being dumb I never pull the value cover which got me to 4200 rebuild .

At 3:04pm on May 4, 2016, Denny Link said…

I like to thank you and the rest for help . And yes all is going back in just like the day it was born  [ torque converter to trans, and a fully rebuild 429 stock ]    have a good day and thanks.

Hi Denny
I have built many fine RC airplane kits and scratch built from plans ,in the past 20 years
I have a very fine collection of the best glo engine airplanes in the 40 and 60 size airframes , a few quarter scale
All fly on rails , after the bugs are worked out , which is the expression used to describe stability , of an exceptional flying model
You had to build ,when I started 20 years ago , or you did not fly , no ARF'S then
I flew control line for 4 years prior to RC and got good at local combat events
I have not done much building or flying in the last year , working on the house and gardens
How do you know about my Passion for RC flight ?
At 5:24pm on May 5, 2015, Denny Link said…

are you still building airplanes

Hi Tony, I'm guessing you didn't see my post.

I'm getting between 58 & 60 degrees out of my center vent with the dash controller on 65. I spoke to Cadillac Tim, he said it should be more like in the 50's. Could it be because it's like 93 degrees here these days ?

PS I didn't know you lived so close to me, I'm in Tamarac, call me 561-305-4413

Dash removal

Posted by Jake Mickley on October 9, 2019 at 12:06am 9 Comments

Hello everyone,

On a 63 CDV, if a guy wanted to remove the entire dash to get all the metal painted, and do some other things behind there, how would he go about doing that?  I checked here and the shop manual, but can't find a complete guide.

As always, and help or direction is appreciated.  Thanks!

--Jake

Thanks for letting me join the club.  Picked up this ‘64 Coupe Deville a few months ago out of Beverly MA, the car has few stickers on it from various Cadillac clubs, didn’t know if anyone might recognize it from it’s “Glory days.” Everything seems pretty healthy except for the body and some very Mickey Mouse repairs, was wondering if anyone had any leads on…
