POWER SEAT BRACKET

Posted on February 7, 2017 at 3:53pm 5 Comments

When I took apart my '63 series 62 6 way power seat, I found the motor/transmission just lying on the floor. The bracket or whatever is used to mount this unit to the seat is missing and I need to find one. Anyone out there have an extra?

Drain Tubes

Posted on September 28, 2016 at 2:41pm 48 Comments

My 1963 series 62 convertible is missing the drain tubes for the convertible top in the trunk. These tubes run from the trunk (under the rear of the top) to the interior and drain into the quarter panel next to the rear seat behind the trim panel. Mine is missing these tubes. Is anyone making them, or should I be looking for a used pair?

Thank you,

Mark

Seat Foam

Posted on December 2, 2015 at 4:24pm 6 Comments

Is any one making replacement foam/padding for the seats in the '63 caddy? New carpet was not enough and the new owners wife wont tolerate the odor. She said "I don't care what it cost, fix it!" Seat foam is the only thing left to replace as the original upholstery is nearly perfect.

Can you help? Driveshaft Question....

Posted by Chris on May 30, 2021 at 8:55am 1 Comment

Hello!

Newbie to the group here - we have already found tons of invaluable information on the board, so thanks! We are restoring a 1963 Series 62 Convertible. We are wondering if anyone knows of a source to buy the propellor yoke flange (that bolts to the pinion flange) for the driveshaft? One of our ears partially broke off. Not sure if we can buy just the yoke flange as an aftermarket part, or if it has to be rebuilt by a welder/fab guy? Maybe a salvage yard for a source? Again, any…

Thank you Kurt re: VIN location

Posted by Robert Pellow on April 19, 2021 at 1:07pm 0 Comments

I just wanted to say a thank you to Kurt for steering me to the tech tips page on V.I.N. locations.  Excellent information.  Thanks a bundle.

V.I.N. where?

Posted by Robert Pellow on April 18, 2021 at 1:41pm 6 Comments

Where can I find the V.I.N. on a 63 convertible?  The usual space at the base of the interior windshield on the driver's side has been decimated by weather.

63 Trunk detail

Posted by Bob Pontius on April 8, 2021 at 3:07pm 6 Comments

Jason, I liked the detail and information you have provided. I would like to do mine similar to yours. Can you help? Do you have trunk material? OPGI is sending the trunk product for my 63 Fleetwood. But it does cover the entire trunk as yours was done. If you do not have can you give me a reference? Thanks!! Bob
