WTD 1964 Sedan Deville w/all options 20k

1964 Sedan Deville with the original 429 engine and TH400 transmission. Engine has approximately 91k miles on the odometer and runs very well. I've replaced the plugs with NOS AC44 plugs, replaced the wires, fuel lines, and a few other components within the engine bay to ensure reliability. The engine starts up well and runs very smoothly from 10 mph up to 100 mph. The transmission shifts very well and she'll smoke tires if you lay into her from a dead stop. This car can easily make a road trip…See More

"You are welcome, Tim.  You are correct, the rubber boot will not fit on the replacements. If you can't find them, this is a good alternative. Dennis"

Tim replied to Tim's discussion 64 passenger side courtesy light not working
"I'd prefer to source an original or NOS if possible.  I'm not sure the rubber boot will fit on those.  Worse comes to worse I'll grab them.  Thank you for the suggestion but I'm a stickler for OEM or original :)"

Jason Edge replied to Tim's discussion 64 passenger side courtesy light not working
"The courtesy light switches are bad for going bad. All they do is take the circuits to ground and are easy to test. Just pop switch out, and unplug each of the 3 wires (2 or 3 wires) and touch each to the rim of metal. Each light circuit (e.g. dash,…"

Dipstick seal

There appears to be some kind of felt washer around the top of my oil dipstick, presumable to seal off the dipstick tube. I've looked around the usual parts suppliers but came up empty. There's not…Continue

Loud air moving sound within carb with cleaner removed

Posted by Dave Fehrle on March 23, 2024 at 3:23pm 8 Comments

While checking my Carter carb with engine running, I took the air cleaner off and there was a very loud hissing sound of air. I placed a piece of paper over the carb and it didn’t move up or down, is this normal?

Vintage Air AC

Posted by Chase on March 21, 2024 at 5:55am 0 Comments

Hey everyone, has anybody done a Vintage Air AC/Heat setup in their car? I want to bypass the old vacuum setup and go with a Vintage Air Gen 2 model. Before I get started, does anyone have any experience with this? (Which model to go with, do’s and dont’s, etc.) It looks pretty involved. Any and all info/pics would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

accumulator dryer

Who rebuilds original AC  accumulator dryers for 1964 Cadillac? 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…
