1963/64 Cadillac Chapter Member?
Yes

Hey everyone.  I am a new member as of March 2021.  I am actively in the market for a 1964 Cadillac Deville convertible.  Red, black, blue or maybe even white.  I am not looking for a Concours level vehicle, I have no intention of taking anything to shows.  I am looking for a Deville to drive on nice weather summer days in Michigan and to enjoy.  I plan to work on and upkeep the vehicle and probably upgrade a few items like brakes and ignition.  I am a retired engineer with 34 years of experience at GM where I started at Cadillac (Clark Street) working along side some of the people that designed and tested the 64 version of the Deville. I am looking forward to driving and enjoying one of these fine vehicles and meeting some of you in the future.

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

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

Car lift and jack stands

Posted by Les Eastling on March 23, 2021 at 10:00am 4 Comments

I mentioned during the 63/64 chapter zoom meeting on 3/21 that we had installed a car lift in our garage. Someone asked what kind and I didn't have the info at hand, so here is a link to it and also a link to some tall jack stands we use to add more stability to the car and an additional safety factor. There is something about getting underneath one of these cars that makes me a little nervous! …
