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.

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.
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…
