Suspension on 63 cdv

Hi all.   my 63 has developed squeaks and creaks recently.   I took a look at the ball joints and associated rubber parts, and they do look a bit worn.  I have replaced shocks in last year or so.  When I bounce the front ends, you can hear the squeak and "feel" the squeak when you put your hand on the upper control arm.  I put some oil on them to try and settle it down for temporary relief. I feel like Uncle Buck riding around with the squeek at stop lights!!   the prior owners that had the car…See More

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

My son, unbeknownst to me, had all three of the horns on our 1963 Eldorado completely restored. We had recently added the Eldorado trumpet horn to the two standard horns and the sound was not very good... we had heard good ones so we knew something was not right... but there was not much we could do to get better sound from the 3 horns. 

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