Hi, thanks for letting me join. I recently purchased a 64 coupe de ville with the intention to airbag it and have a fun cruiser. Looks to be an early production car (503) and pretty well optioned. It…Continue
"thank you. Definitely a fun cruiser. No modifications for a while if ever. Focus right now is cleaning and fixing an oil that developed on the drive home. Paint is far rougher than the pictures show. Polish it and see what can be saved. Trunk lid…"
She's beauty! Sounds like a good ride back home, just like it should be in a classic Cadillac! These cars are getting much harder to find, especially in the condition yours is in. I'd recommend keeping is stock and…"
"Thank you. I’ll take some more pictures when I get home. I was working on it earlier today, throttle, brake and parking brake all look nearly new. Bright chrome, well defined lines on the rubber. I also pulled up the floor mat and carpet looks…"
"Not sure you can do anything to make your 64 Cadillac ride better than it does with its stock suspension working as intended
IT rides like a Cadillac !! —-applies here !
My own opinion is that the 63-64 Cadillac are the two…"
"Check the brake peddle for wear as Jason suggests to establish ball park real mileage
The photos do look like your Cadillac is a low milage car
It looks great in the photos
If your Cadillac is very low milage it does kick the…"
"Yeah I think that’s what I’m going to end up doing. Had no clue this was an early and low mileage car when I bought it. I’m going to clean it up a bit, enjoy it and then see about selling and getting one that’s more…"
"If truly 10K miles, I'd leave it alone. I'm not a car collector myself but have been around enough to know they seek out low mileage, highly optioned cars. There are plenty of other good candidates out there to customize & drive. With…"
Hi, thanks for letting me join. I recently purchased a 64 coupe de ville with the intention to airbag it and have a fun cruiser. Looks to be an early production car (503) and pretty well optioned. It may also be very low mileage ~10k miles. Car runs and drives well, just took it on a 1400 mile road trip. Is this a car that should be saved and transitioned more to a show/survivor vehicle or is it of low enough significance to use and enjoy? Thanks for your advice. See More
Just ordered new tires for my 63. As the front wheels have reasonable wear I want to align them or at least have them aligned, but not sure if the alignment data in our shop manual are still the…Continue
I am getting ready to order roof rail weather stripping and rear door window leading edge seals for my '63 Series 62 6 window sedan model 6229. I've been on the websites for Rubber The Right Way,…Continue
I'm located in Melbourne, Australia and my 64 sedan de ville is stuck in the garage due to failed mechanical fuel pump. The first after market mechanical fuel pump lasted a few years before it failed & left me stranded 5 hours from home. A hire car and tow got us home. On inspection, I noticed a valve not seated within the housing. I was optimistic, pressed it into place and assumed the pump was good to go. But alas, no. From what I can now determine, the diaphragm pushrod…
