Thanks! This car was once owned by the late CLC member/contributor Joel Prescott. Im curious if any veteran web site members remember him or this vehicle. I know Mr Prescott also owned a beloved '47 caddy.

The '64 Fleetwood represented elegance, prosperity, and the American dream to me as 10 year old kid. Still does!

Hi,

New member who just purchased a 1964 Sedan Deville with a bad AC system.  I have seen that you wrote some great articles on repairing the pneumatics (mechanical part of AC system is now working).  Can you send me a link to your previous posts ?  Thanks.  Bob Sweeney

1964 power steering sector rebuild

Posted by CHRIS CARLSON on March 20, 2023 at 11:32pm 3 Comments

 I'm having my steering sector rebuilt, and considering changing it from 20-1 ratio 4.2 turns lock to lock to 3.5 turns lock to lock @ 16-1 ratio, If i change from a 3 1/4" box to a 3" box i could have a 14-1 Ratio steering response would be faster, shorter distance to turn the wheel to get a response,   has anyone done this? and how do you like it? thank you

Need help with a hood latch

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…
