If anybody looking for a shop to rebuild the tranny...or have questions regarding issues with it!

Hi everybody, 

So, I've been having a little problem with a tranny in one of my 63 CDVs (it doesnt shift 1st to 2nd gear smooth...or as smooth as I'd like it do it) and been looking around for a decent shop that specializes ONLY in Jetaways/Hydramatic trasmissions.

I've run into a guy that specializes in rebuilding old transmissions, especially old ones that we have in our cars! Apparently, he worked for Cadillac for 23 years (started in 1966). He's got his shop located in…

1963 Eldorado convertible boot

Posted by Les Eastling on February 27, 2020 at 10:33am 1 Comment

I need a used convertible boot for a 63 Cadillac convertible - condition or color is not an issue since it will be used as a pattern for making a new one. One from either a 62 series convertible or an Eldorado would work. I know I am searching for hen's teeth here... but you never know unless you ask!
