"so the first thing is the stainless spacer shim.  It may be missing from your carb.  If your exhaust ports were completely plugged, it would have idled without it, but now that you have cleaned the exhaust channel, it won't. "

63 AFB Carb Problems

Hey guys, I'm having a problem with a 63 DeVille. I just rebuilt the carb and now I'm having issues getting it to idle. There was a few different issues, so I'll start at the top. The car ran and drove fine, but didn't idle well on a cold start. Carb hadn't been rebuilt in a while, so I pulled it off and rebuilt it, no major issues found, just a bit dirty.Sidenote- the carb kit came with updated needle/seat, so instead of your typical needle style, it uses a rubber bumper. Hard to explain on…See More

1963 & 1965 Distributor

Posted by Martin McKercher on November 9, 2021 at 8:34pm 5 Comments

Hi all
I am looking to have an aftermarket distributor made for these year models.
I have fitted a Holley Sniper to my 63' 390 & want the Sniper to control the timing.

This is in the very early stages so I am looking to see if it is viable.
I understand the purists might see this as sacrilgious but the Sniper has made my car soo much better for me.
I am asking to see if there is any interest?

What is the color of this 63 Eldorado - aquamarine or green?

Posted by SK on October 24, 2021 at 2:33pm 2 Comments

Hi, 

I really like the color combination of this 63 Eldorado (sold long time ago by Volocars).

The ad states aqua exterior and green interior but unfortunately there is no pic on the cowl tag.   

Is the exterior color ’Frost aquamarine’ and interior ’Beryl’?

Or is the exterior green, ’Frost green’ and interior ’Emerald’?
