Am doing disc conversion on front. Tore it all apart (front and rear). To re-assemble rear drums, what am i gonna need? Its been a few decades, and with my old dodge, i could do it with a flat head and vise grips. But these seem more robust on my 63 cadi. Springs stiffer(or im more wimpy). See More

1963 convertible $13,000 in Toronto

Posted on January 19, 2015 at 5:25pm 0 Comments

http://www.kijiji.ca/v-classic-cars/city-of-toronto/1963-cadillac-deville-convertible/1008196554?enableSearchNavigationFlag=true

I saw this car for sale in the fall and has been re-listed. Would work out to about $11,500 USD. Looks a little over priced if you read between the lines.... but maybe deal of the century....

Oops. thought private. Well its out there now. I bought this car last spring as an eldorado. (ownership says eldo) Imported to ontario from maryland in 1999. I suspect its not an eldorado. It has some of the markings, but also missing some key details. (like the body code) Either way im happy with purchase. If some in the know would be so kind as to hazard a guess as to its original designation????  Thanx in advance.

Can you email??? I want to see your car. My body style says 6257, not 6357. I dont know if i have an eldo knock-off or some sorta bastardized one.......itsucksbeing@rogers.com

Thanx Art. I think im gonna bite the bullet and get an edelbrock. Been reading about too many bad rebuilds, and many good things about the edelbrock.

1963 series 62 convertible transmission issue

Posted by Matthew VanDeWater on June 22, 2021 at 3:03pm 1 Comment

Hello I've been restoring a 63 for way to many years. Down to almost done, but have issue with trans linkage, when column in park shift rod 2 inches short. everything original. been trying to find picture of manual rod hooked up from under car to see position of linkage. was wondering if anybody has access for pictures. I wanted to see if my manual linkage is bent  wrong out of the trans if somebody dropped the trans or something. Doesn't make sense why it doesn't work. Thanks for any input…

Torque converter grab when idling in Drive

Posted by Cliff Johnston on June 14, 2021 at 8:47pm 2 Comments

Hi Everyone, been quite a while since i have been on here.

I have had an issue with the idle on my 64 Coupe Deville ever since i have had it.

With the Idle set high enough that it is smooth, but still a nice idle, the RPM seems only slightly too high for the stall of the Torque Converter. And therefore it tends to sit there and grab and lunge a bit. So until now, i have been putting the car in Neutral at the lights to stop this happening.

I've had the car dyno tuned and…

Can you help? Driveshaft Question....

Posted by Chris on May 30, 2021 at 8:55am 1 Comment

Hello!

Newbie to the group here - we have already found tons of invaluable information on the board, so thanks! We are restoring a 1963 Series 62 Convertible. We are wondering if anyone knows of a source to buy the propellor yoke flange (that bolts to the pinion flange) for the driveshaft? One of our ears partially broke off. Not sure if we can buy just the yoke flange as an aftermarket part, or if it has to be rebuilt by a welder/fab guy? Maybe a salvage yard for a source? Again, any…
