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.

I can't properly thank you all for your information and references to the 'Help' section.  I now know for sure that the car in question is an Eldorado Biarritz..  And I can see that if I proceed I will be going to that Help section first before asking questions.

Much appreciated.  Thank you Kurt and Jason in particular.

Good day Robert,

You really should check out the Help section.

Regarding the tires, there is a good thread in Help that explains it all.

Tires and rims

As Kurt noted there was only the Eldorado Biarrtiz in 1963. Given the fact the Biarritz convertible was the the only body style in the "Eldorado" body series was one of the factors in moving the Eldorado under the "Fleetwood" body series in 1964, thus becoming the Fleetwood Eldorado in 1964. In interested in more details regarding this move from 63 to 64, check out this Help Topic: Eldorado Biarritz - Fleetwood Eldorado: What’s In a Name?

Comment by Kurt on April 19, 2021 at 2:43pm

My understanding is that all Eldorados for 1963 are Biarritz. The other convertibles for 1963 are Series 62. This should be determined by the 3rd digit of the VIN -"E" indicates Eldorado which will be a Biariritz. In the Literature section above, the 1963 Cadillac Brochure only list an Eldorado Biarritz, no other Eldorado models; direct link - http://6364cadillac.ning.com/photo/albums/1963-cadillac-dealer-broc...

If anyone knows differently, please comment.

As far as tires sizes, please refer to the Help section above.

I shouldn't push my luck but I see there are at  least two tire sizes possible for a 63 Cadillac, 9:00.R15 or 225/R15.  I am looking to put tires on what is being sold to me as a 1963 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz.  I have not yet been able to confirm that it is, indeed, a Biarritz, but if it is, what would be the tire size?  And is there some way of identifying the Biarritz specifically as opposed to the other Eldorado convertible models, i.e., is there a chrome signature of some kind or a difference in trim? If there is another Tech Tip on this kind of information I would appreciate a lead.

You can find this in the Help section above. Here is a direct link to the topic VIN: Where's the VIN?

Lower Front End Ball Joints

Posted by Logan Robb on May 11, 2023 at 9:04am 7 Comments

Good Morning all! 

I took the 64 into the shop to have some adjustments completed and in the process decided to have the lower ball joints replaced as was recommended the last time I had it in. I ordered the parts and came into the shop. They quoted me nearly $500 to replace those lower ball joints requiring nearly 4hrs of labor. Now this is a reputable shop and they know me by name here and they will continue to get my business. I am just questioning what on earth is…


1964 power steering sector rebuild

Posted by CHRIS CARLSON on March 20, 2023 at 11:32pm 3 Comments

 I'm having my steering sector rebuilt, and considering changing it from 20-1 ratio 4.2 turns lock to lock to 3.5 turns lock to lock @ 16-1 ratio, If i change from a 3 1/4" box to a 3" box i could have a 14-1 Ratio steering response would be faster, shorter distance to turn the wheel to get a response,   has anyone done this? and how do you like it? thank you
