A Fleetwood Eldorado Convertible is a model 6367.
There was no Cadillac designated “Biarritz” in 1964. However there are many people who are unaware of this and incorrectly state or publish that incorrectly.

AV sells for many applications per their web site and has data about the rubber specs which varies according to application. I’m very pressed for time in my work right now, but think it couldn’t hurt to call these folks if…"
"AV also says that they will make bushings in unique sizes.
In the mean time I identified another source for rear bushings: Caddy Daddy. Their site also lists the dimensions of the bushings.
Maybe you didn’t see it but I did some research on an earlier message and found a manufacturer in Georgia, USA who makes these types of suspension bushings with rubber.
Perhaps you could furnish a sample to them and they could…"
"Here’s a company in Georgia that manufactures this type of bushing: Their size chart is metric perhaps they could match what is needed for the rear control arm application
"Jeff and Russ
Thanks for your knowledge of the subject
Hope Dan is inspired to keep making the arms he does as this is a serious problem for the owners of our car and there future ride characteristic
"This is turning out to be a very interesting and informative subject about the suspension qualities we have to look forward to in the future
It would be a sin to change the ride qualities of my 64 convert as it is one of the joys of…"
"Poly bushings are not available for the stock control arm. I checked with the major suppliers and the custom market.
You grease the bushing so it doesn't squeak and the ride has not diminished at all. it improved as it got rid of the "boat…"
I read comments about the ride quality on normal suspension cars being destroyed by the ultra stiff polyurethane bushings.
They “eliminate” deflection. This is exactly what bushings are there for, to absorb shock and vibration…"
"Just thinking it does seem reasonable to put the poly bushings into the stock rear control arms --if staying stock is your thing
When resurching the poly bushing in the past i remember they have a short comming of some kind I think that they can…"
"I did replace my front brake drums with the newer free floating type design ( front center hub not permanently attached to the drum--like stock ) when i had the problem with the 64 brakes causing the entire front of the car from shaking after new…"
Welcome to our group. We have several sources for parts for our cars listed here under the parts suppliers link. Our members Russ Austin and Jason Edge both have hobby-parts businesses and are particularly knowledgeable and helpful. I…"
Jeff, I noticed that you had a connection to get a kit to replace the broken choke tubes. I also need the twisted piece. The application is a 1963 Cadillac Deville with the 390 Rochester 4GC. Any help would be appreciated, I would like to get this done while I have the intake manifold off :D I bought my caddy a year ago with a rebuilt engine and shortly after it had a major oil leak. Just took the valley pan off and discovered someone folded the gasket over on one side. At least I know where all of the oil came from now!

Hello and thank you for letting me join this group. While I was driving my 63 model 62 my trans cooler line blew off and needless to say I ran out of fluid. The next day I replaced the rubber hose…Continue
I am happy to report that I have successfully replaced the Fresh Air/Recirc door actuator that is located on the blower box-and have done so without having to remove the blower box. I did it by taking out the glove box and attacking it from the back. It took several days, LOTS of patience and some band-aids, but it is done. THE most difficult part -BY FAR- is to remove and then replace the screw that sits on the actuator arm, connecting it to the fresh…
