Started this discussion. Last reply by Dave Fehrle Feb 28. 18 Replies

A few questions on the resistor wire, what color is it in the pic? The yellow/blue or black? And connecting to the ACC on the fuse box seems easiest way to go with the new switched wire, but where…Continue

"Hi Dave,      It sounds like you checked everything.  As Jason said, there is a normal vacuum sound when you remove the air cleaner.  I have a 4-barrel Rochester on my 64, so it is a bit different than your Carter.  If…"

The center cap on my 63 wagon came off and ruined the valve stem. But a quick tow back to White Post Resto for a new stem and a gouge removal got us back on the road! Both wagons made it.Continue

Vintage Air AC

Posted by Chase on March 21, 2024 at 5:55am 0 Comments

Hey everyone, has anybody done a Vintage Air AC/Heat setup in their car? I want to bypass the old vacuum setup and go with a Vintage Air Gen 2 model. Before I get started, does anyone have any experience with this? (Which model to go with, do’s and dont’s, etc.) It looks pretty involved. Any and all info/pics would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

accumulator dryer

Who rebuilds original AC  accumulator dryers for 1964 Cadillac? I have been on Classic auto air in Tampa FL wait list for over a year ,  There is one on Old air products web site that looks very similar to the original # 21-4214A but states it fits 1962 Gm cars, The one recommended for a 1964 Cadillac is half the length 21-4215A    What  is everyone using ? I would prefer to be as original as possible. Thanks

'63 Eldorado trumpet horn + 2 standard horns restoration

Posted by Les Eastling on November 15, 2023 at 10:34am 1 Comment

There is a restoration service called The Horn Works who my son…
