63 Deville Vista wagon story

Here's the scoop. I have no paper trail whatsoever.But at the 2017 Caddy Nationals at Tysons, VA. I ran into a guy that confirmed the rumor.Winthorp Rockefeller ordered two of these 63 wagons from a coach builder in NJ. The man told me he worked for Mr. Rockefeller and remembered the wagons. Mine was originally dark blue, then Firemist red in the 1970s, then was painted Burgundy in 1985. I bought it from a man in Cape Cod. The car had rust issues and we had to get a new vista roof from a 1964…See More

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.

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…

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.
