I need to replace the muffler on my 64 and the local shop does not have the correct one.
After looking on the web site's help section, I still don't see a recommended part/manufacturer or suggestion.
What is the best solution to purchase for a stock, single system with 2 1/2 inch pipes, center in, offset out?
I thought I'd post a little encouragement for those that might have an inoperative 6 way power seat in their car. The fix is relatively easy, and VERY cheap.
I just purchased an original (not re-painted, nor reupholstered) 64 Sedan De Ville 4 window. When I purchased it the front seat was adjusted forward and tilted down in front; two of the worst positions for me, so I had no choice but to attempt to repair it.
Pushing the switch in each direction brought…Continue

I saw this question asked in 2012 but did not see a definitive answer to the question so here goes. The new main bearings I received for my build are little different than the originals. Of the five bearings the thrust bearing is the same as are two of the other bearings. Of the other two one has two oil groves and one is wider than the others. Does anyone know where the odd bearings go. My guess is they go in the front and the rear but I don't know what one goes where. Any information would…Continue

My '64 convert is getting better, but the engine remains questionable. Starts and runs well enough, powerful, but I think I hear a main bearing banging, the balance is not great and I'd like to upgrade to fuel injection if I can.
Are there dependable remans available of good quality? Are new crate engines available? Will more advanced engines from newer years fit?
Also, please, the diff ratio is quite high, lots of RPMs compared to today's cars. Are there diffs with lower…Continue

Offering this newly re-chromed 1963 Cadillac front center impact bar for sale, $100 plus whatever it costs to ship it from Detroit to your location.
The unit fits perfect on driver's side but does not sit flush on passenger side. I am told someone needs to take a wooden block and hammer and bang the passenger side lower corner in to make it fit right. If you know how to do this stuff, this is the piece for you.
Email email@example.com with any questions.…Continue

During the process of a complete restoration (and color change) of my ‘63s interior during the winter of 2016, I replaced the aftermarket seatbelts that were in my car with restored original '64 buckles and retractors. I had a terrific experience with Ssnake-Oyl Products out of Tyler Texas, so I thought I share the info.
In my opinion, the '64 seat belt buckle with the Cadillac Crest is the coolest looking seat belt buckle ever put in a car. Apparently, they're not easy to find in…Continue
Good Morning - I have read several, very informative posts on this site regarding the 63/64 drive shaft and am looking for a few recommendations. My Park Avenue is a relatively low mileage car (32,000); however, in an effort to make this a very reliable, long distance traveler I would like to ensure that this vital component has a clean bill of health. Normally, this would mean replacing all universal joints, greasing the slip yoke, and replacing the carrier bearing/mount. As you have…Continue
What I enjoy most about old cars is that they can be restored to original condition, radically customized, or somewhere between those extremes, reflecting the owner's individual style. For my '63 Convertible, I want to achieve a mostly original look, with minor custom touches to make it clean, smooth, and low. This article is to share my experience in choosing and installing the suspension components to achieve a low stance and a comfortable ride.
I purchased my car in August of…Continue
Good Afternoon - my name is Chris and I'm new to the site (well ... officially; I've read a lot of your posts and am very impressed by the great advice and interest). I'm working on a very original '63 SDV Park Avenue and am attempting to remove the "Park Avenue" emblems in preparation for a repaint. Once I carefully removed the truck liner, I noticed that the studs are conical shaped and do not appear to have ever had a speed-nut, or some type of push clip ever installed. I have removed…Continue
Our old Cadillacs have a pretty simple electrical system using an externally regulated alternator to keep the battery charged and run the accessories while driving. First appearing in 1963, the GM 10DN externally regulated alternator was a step up from the bulky generator used on the '62 and earlier. But newer, internally regulated alternators are now available that can output three times the current in the same size package. This article explains how I upgraded my charging system to a…Continue
