Anybody know a good source for these? There are a few places that sell them but nobody cross-references them in anyway so you know you're getting the right one. I wasted a bunch of $ on aftermarket…Continue
I have 3-prong door jamb switch for convertible cars (missing the button - parts only) available. Also a switch for door or window depending on application - I've been using it for a convertible top…Continue
I found I had one of these when I went to install an aftermarket switch. It is a 3-prong door switch from 1963 convertible. It is missing the push-button but the spring inside still works fine,…Continue
Is there a trick to popping the rear seat cushion in 1963 convertible models? The manual says to push back and lift up once free of the retainers. But the metal rod inside the front bottom seat is…Continue

There was a plastic nipple stuck in the free end of the hose, meaning the other end led to another hose. I looked…Continue
The lines sold for 1963 & 64 Cadillacs are NOT good on all cars. Specifically, they do NOT fit Series 62 or 75 vehicles.
The lines they sell have threaded ends/screws on both ends. Refer to your shop manuals and you will see this is NOT the correct fitting for the transmission ends. A complicated setup involving beaded tube endings and sleeves with O-rings connected by rubber hose & clamps is required.
After two lengthly phone conversations with customer service it…Continue
