Air bag or restore early production 64

Started this discussion. Last reply by Michael Vogler Sep 25. 15 Replies

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

"Just to add if the mileage is accurate and a very low mileage car that brake pedal should be showing very little wear. Check out this ramble for a visual: Click Here"

Air bag or restore early production 64

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

Trunk Open and Lock Mechanism is in Closed Position

Posted by Chris Anderson on September 13, 2022 at 7:14pm 7 Comments

While working on my trunk lock on 64 Cadillac, I mistakenly closed the locking mechanism while the trunk was open.  Is there an easy way to manually release the lock back to the open position?

Thanks.

Fuel Pump Failure

Posted by Jon Shields on August 6, 2022 at 6:48am 4 Comments

Hello,

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…

To do this we will use a certain formalism of project management and therefore start by defining the need. It is from this that we will deduce the scope, then the time of execution of the…

I was working on my HVAC system this winter and during the process of taking the dash pad off these two parts fell out. Does anyone know what they are and where they go?
