Welcome to my own little corner of parts hoarding

        SEE MY WEB SITE AT WWW.1963CADDYSHACK.COM

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 

A little about me. I drive a 63 sedan, series 62. Also a 63 Cadillac Superior Hearse. I have started getting parts cars, and stripping them down for the parts, since GM has decided not to make parts for our cars any more. I work a full time job, so this is my hobby. A full time hobby it seems.  I have many parts for the 1963 & 64 Cadillacs.  To inquire about parts, email me at russ85747@hotmail.com   Please include your zip code or country so I can reply with a good shipping quote.

PARTS POLICY

ITEMS SOLD AS IS. I try to offer reasonable prices on good used parts that are becoming harder and harder to find. Please be absolutely correct in identifying  the model of your car, as there are several, and some parts are not compatible with all models. I generally do not offer money back guarantees as my parts are sold as is. I will, however, be glad to swap out an item if it does not work or is unacceptable and I have a replacement item in stock and you pay shipping and handling costs. This is especially true for electrical components such as AC & Heater parts. Items such as power antenna motors are tested and I will state that it has been tested in my reply. I will be glad to send digital pictures if needed and describe the part to the best of my ability to help determine the condition of an item. Keep in mind that most parts are not NOS or Mint and when I state something is good or very good this does not mean near Mint or Mint.  Once you contact me to inquire about a part, I will hold that part for you, for 5 days. After 5 days, the part goes back on my shelves, waiting for another customer.

SHIPPING AND HANDLING
I ship 2-3 day priority mail through the U.S. Postal Service unless we agree to another shipping method. Shipping and Handling price quotes are understood to include Priority Mail shipping unless otherwise indicated. I do ship outside of the United States, however, I will need a shipping address to determine what your shipping charges will be. I use the online U.S. Postal Service calculator to determine rates for addresses outside the U.S. You can confirm the rate for yourself by going to www.USPS.com.  I do not generally include insurance with the cost of shipping.  If you pay with Pay Pal, please ensure that the address listed in your Pay Pal account is correct.
Note: If you do not provide me with a specific Ship To address, I will used the return address on your envelope, check or any other source of address that I can find. If you do not provide me with a deliverable Ship To address then I do not assume responsibility for your items being lost.

UNCLAIMED ITEMS
I try to work with buyers of larger parts in which I cannot provide shipping and try to allow sufficient amount of time for buyer to either pick-up or arrange for shipping. I will allow a maximum of two months for pickup for any items that has been purchased. After two months I will put item back in stock and buyer will forfeit the payment and the item. Please make sure if you purchase an item such as an engine, windshield, fender, hood, etc. that you will be able to either pick the item up or arrange for shipping.

PAYMENT METHODS
Pay Pal is the prefered method of payment. Personal Check, Money Order, or Cashiers Check are fine and should be sent to my address listed below. I generally do not hold items, but reserve the right to hold an item until a personal check has cleared.  You can send money to my PAYPAL account set up under my e-mail address  russ85747@hotmail.com . I ship the item to the address shown in the Pay Pal address unless otherwise specified.

To inquire about parts, please e-mail me at   russ85747@hotmail.com

Hello Russ, thanks for friending me. I was reading thru the past forums about installing a Edelbrock carb on the ‘63 390 and a member showed a picture of a bracket he had someone make for the TV Rod and you asked him if you could get 1 or some made by the same guy. I was just wondering if you did in fact get some made for you? I’m putting the Edelbrock on our 390 at this time and that bracket would sure make things easier it you had any for sale. If so let me know if you would. Thanks, Scott

Map Light

Posted by RIchard Yasenchack on January 1, 2022 at 8:07pm 7 Comments

I have a 63 Cadillac Series 62 convertible.  Can someone post a picture showing what the map light should look like?

Mine is a meta air vent like grating, which just does not look right for a map light.

Thanks in advance.  Rick

Upgrades for the Coupe de Ville

Posted by Kurt on December 24, 2021 at 6:00pm 4 Comments

At long last I finally have power vent windows! I started collecting the parts 3 years ago. The one thing I could not find until recently is the 6 button driver's switch. Jason finally pulled one in and was more than generous with pricing. Thanks Jason! Installing the vent window motors was the easiest part of the project but many other tasks were spawned by this project.

  1. There is a hole in the door panels where the window crank was. I considered putting a hub cap emblem there…

center bolt size for crankshaft pulley

Posted by Dan Norris on December 6, 2021 at 3:13pm 2 Comments

I need to pull my distributor, and still have the cork in the end of the crankshaft. What is the bolt size needed to thread a bolt in there to be able to turn the motor over with a pull handle and socket to get it to TDC exactly before I pull the distributor out?
