  1. I removed this semi-transparent white plastic case from somewhere behind the dashboard of a 1976 Cadillac Seville. Inside the case are circuit boards. I didn't make any notes when I removed this piece, and I have no idea what it is. Can anyone identify it? Thanks very much!
  2. After a moderate time in storage, the 1970 Cadillac started well on her own battery. She was driven home, about ten miles - then it would not start as a result of a discharged battery. After a jump-start, a quick check showed that the wire between the alternator and the battery was right at 12-volts, rather than the expected 14 +/- volts which would have been typical. After checking wires and contacts, I removed the alternator and took it to the brand new Autozone store where they checked it and said that it was putting out over 14 volts. Since I plan to tour cross-country with this old girl (the car), I bought a new Voltage Regulator, and a new Alternator (which they also checked and was showing over 14 volts). Back home, I re-installed the old but good alternator and the new regulator. The same condition - only 12 volts, so then I swapped out for the new alternator - same lack of results !! What am I missing? In the old days we had to polarize by jumping across terminals on the regulator, but I didn't think this was a factor with an alternator. I'm at a loss, and don't have much more hair to pull out. What am I doing wrong? What do I need to do to get the system charging? I appreciate any help and advice for you all - notably the best bunch on the planet. Thanks in advance for your thoughts, Marty
  3. My 92 Allante does not have either the Certification Sticker (the one with the build date on it), or the Tire-Load Information Sticker on the left door. Why, I know not? I cannot detect any signs of the same having ever been there and being subsequently removed. Any ideas as to where I can get (replacement) stickers to install? I have already contacted Cadillac Motor Div. of GM. It issued a standard reply of, "Contact your dealer."
  4. I believe this to be a 1930's straight 8 head. Does anyone know how to value this part, I do not need it and want to sell it. This is a 27 bolt, 31 inches long, 7 1/2 inches wide and about 2 1/8 thick, date on the front is 8 31 1930. thanks
  5. I had the pleasure of meeting a very interesting fellow, Ray Koenig, at this year's Barrett-Jackson auction. I was onsite for the Velocity Channel to do still photography and conduct interviews for the Velocity blog. Ray was a GM designer and started back in 1956 with Harvey Earl. I ended up doing a series of interviews with him discussing the evolution of the tail fin. We started with the distinctive rear end of a 57 Desota. Evidently someone had spotted a version of this tail fin in the Desota parking lot in 54 which prompted the discussion at the GM studios "Well, what are we going to do?" Organically, the 57 Caddy had already started to sprout a tail fin of less stature but still prominent. And then of course, there was the grandaddy of them all, the 59 Needless to say, I had a grand time learning from someone who was in the bull pit, knowing all the characters, speak of the design process of where all this incredible and vivacious design came from. Ray went on to record an interview with one of our Velocity personalities concerning the 59 Cadillac. Then someone piped into the conversation that the parade boot as scene on the 59 Biarritz convertible was not an option for that year. He questioned the validity of the restoration at that point. Everything that I could find that the Biarritz Cadillac of 59 only had 4 options: Just four options were available for the Eldorado – air conditioning, cruise control, the Autronic-Eye automatic headlight dimmer and E-Z Eye glass, along with a no-cost bucket seat option for the Biarritz. Both the Biarritz convertible and the Seville hardtops carried a lofty base price of $7,401 when new, with only 1,320 examples of the Biarritz produced. All the photos I could dig up all indicated that the Biarritz Caddies had body colored parade boots. So it must have been a standard item on that version of the Series 62. Does anyone have information as to the validity of that statement? I emailed Mark Lizewskie earlier and he suggested posting the question here. Ray has found the contact info for the designer of the 58 and 59 Cadillacs but we are unsure if he'll get a responce. I look forward to any information we can glean from the group. warm regards Ken Visser Velocity Blogger photographer of all the images included in this post. All taken at the 2015 Barrett-Jackson auction.
  6. hi there, i have a pair of bumper guards that are quite odd. i would assume they are after market but who knows? they are odd because instead of steel they are made entirely of pot metal or aluminum, even the bracket. the only wording i see is the word ''DURABLE'' casted into them. then i also have a set of these weird cadillac caps that i cant figure what there from. at least im pretty sure there caddy. i thought they were spare tire caps but no luck so far...
  7. Hi All, I am needing to replace the worn air pump unit for the rear suspension. There seems to be a plethora of different models when I do a google search, but not the one that I need for the vehicle as above. Can any one point me in the right direction for a new pump, ideally to directly replace the existing assembly as per photos at this flickr link https://flic.kr/s/aHsk5oyfG2 Or we at there stage of having to modify another to do the job. I really don't want to chance it with a used unit, so new is the choice if it exists. Cheers David
  8. I have a 68 Eldorado that I'm selling for $700. Its been sitting in my garage for a little over 20 years. The last time I drove-started it was 8 years ago (oil-fluid change, tires rotated, etc). I put it on Craig's List and a potential buyer wants to verify that the engine isn't seized. He pulled on a belt and said it should move. He thought the engine was seized. I told him I'd check it out. Anyway, I poured Marvel Mystery Oil in the spark plug sockets a week ago. I was then told to put a socket on the fly wheel bolt and turn it clockwise. The problem is, I can't find a center bolt on the fly wheel, just the bolts around the outer edges. I found a hole, but no bolt. Do I remove the smaller bolts to gain access to the center bolt? I'm really hoping to avoid buying a new battery and testing it that way, they're expensive and if the engine is seized, I'll probably just junk it. Does anyone know another way to check if an engine is frozen? Thanks!

  15. I am trying to tie down the years and brands this convertible rear window was used in. It is 27 3/8" wide and 7 1/2" tall. The outside finish is chrome and the inside is painted. The faces of the frame have a curved surface rather than a flat surface. I have am impression that is was used on Chevrolet convertibles possibly from 1940 1941 1942 1946 1947 1948 1949 and 1950, but I'm not sure. It may have been used on other GM products such as Pontiac, Cadillac, Buick, Oldsmobile or others.
  16. The car is located in the Central Lakes area of Minnesota. Ready to be restored. I have more pics if needed. No title. Has the engine in it. I'm sure its froze. Bring your trailer. Ready to sell it. Don't have the time to put into it. It's taking up space at this point.
  17. Hi . . . I was taking care of a friend's dog in West Hollywood, so this recent LA transplant took the opportunity to walk along Sunset Boulevard. I found this 1941 Buick in a gas station and had to take a look. Noting the Mexican plates, I took a look inside and saw the speedo was in kilometers. Wow! I chatted with the proprietors and they said it was a friend's and it was a '38 (I corrected them). I then asked them if I could take some pics. They were very willing and I was very thankful for that because, y'know, sometimes people can be weird (as well as people like me having ulterior motives). They told me the same guy owned the 1955 Cadillac on the lot and yes, the speedo was in kmh as well - cool! I sent the pics to my friend (who's a member here), who told me the following: The Century is a bit of a mystery. Officially, it does not seem to be a factory export model, because the body number is too high...only 109 Model 61X four-door sedans were made, while 15,027 non-export were built. The data plate is bent down, concealing the model number, which would be 61X for an export car, 61 for a regular Century. The style number, 41-4609 is correct for the series and model. The GM export situation is rather confusing. There were cars built for export and sold through the export organization, but there were also cars exported that did not for one reason or another go through the export sales company. This must be one of those cars. There were also Canadian Buicks, but they were still produced by GM of Canada and were technically McLaughlin Buicks. (There is a possibility they did not build the large series models, though, so this could still be a car built in the US for the Canadian market.) The kilometer speedometer is incredibly cool! The data plate has the correct rivets, but the serial number strip should be attached differently...not with screws. The number, however, is a 1941 Flint-built Buick number and looks to me like it falls generally in the early months of the model year range, which would be consistent with the body number. The color code 571 is for English Green, which the car apparently remains. He then followed up with this: Just one more thought on the '41 Century...it might have been assembled in Mexico. Attached is part of a story from GM World magazine about the GM assembly operation there in 1940. Sub-assemblies and parts were shipped from the US in crates with assembly finished in the plant. These cars may have had regular Fisher Body plates, or not. Almost certainly, the Century was at least ordered through the GM de Mexico operation. However, look at the Cadillac's data plate. Strange, eh? Here's what my friend said: The Cadillac with the blank data plate is also a mystery. It looks like there might be another plate the left of it that might have some addition info? The blank data plate kind of rings a bell...I think I've read about another Cadillac that had such a plate. On the other hand, the rivets are non-standard and one is in the wrong place, making me think the plate may have been added after production. It may be there simply to legally prove the car was produced in the US, with the other info being not relevant. A few Cadillac were still sold new outside of the US at the time. I know an elderly guy who worked for Cadillac as a regional manager for the Caribbean area in this period... Anyone can help with insight beyond my equally enthusiastic friend?

Marmon History is Rich in Performance and Innovation The 19th century Indianapolis-based wagon maker Nordyke Marmon followed many of its peers by making a giant leap into the horseless carriage business shortly after the turn of the century. The company had the good fortune to be led by the Stanford-educated engineering genius, Howard Marmon. From the beginning of their auto production in 1905, until the end at the depths of the Great Depression in 1933, Marmon was known for expensive sporting cars of advanced engineering and design. Most famously was the Marmon Wasp, driven by Ray Harroun who won the inaugural 1911 Indy 500 pioneering the use of rear view mirrors and eliminating the need for a riding spotter/mechanic. The 1917 Marmon model 34 was the company’s most successful commercial effort, and enjoyed a production run of 10 years, a testament to how advanced a car it was during the time of its introduction. It was well accepted by the affluent and demanding customers of the day. The Model 34 makes extensive use of aluminum, the bodywork was integrated to the chassis design to be stress-bearing and the engine was an advanced overhead valve inline six of 340 cubic inches. The Marmon 34 weighed just 3,295 lbs and could travel at 80 MPH. This particular Marmon is an early production model with the unique “Cloverleaf” configuration with two compact front bucket seats and just two doors; together with its special front-to-rear access pathway the layout resembled a cloverleaf when viewed from above. Marmon’s Model 34 set a high standard for long distance performance and held the Trans-continental speed record, which proved to be a popular marketing tool. Another marketing effort was Marmon’s attempt to win a U.S. Army contract to furnish the Model 34 for use in Europe during WWI, which took place in Marfa, TX. A number of Model 34s were shipped to Fort D.A. Russell where they were tested in the rugged Big Bend terrain. They were then driven to Washington, DC and remarkably burned no oil and experienced no serious breakdowns. A model 34 was driven coast-to-coast to beat Erwin "Cannonball" Baker's record. Marmon’s swan song was its fabulous V16, built from 1931-33 which was arguably the most sophisticated multi-cylinder engine of the era. Open to offers! Trades considered—WHAT HAVE YOU?

  21. I'm trying to replace the Power steering hoses on my '53 Cadillac 60S. I took the hoses to my local hydraulic hose shop for fabrication and they told me that there is a restrictor built into the pressure hose. Unfortunately they don't have the restrictor so they cant make the hoses. I've seen some of these hose for sale on the internet but they don't appear to have the restrictor.....Is this necessary to have ??...... does anyone have any experience with replacing these hoses both pressure and return hoses and do you know a supplier? Thanks Carl
  22. Up for sale is a 1941 Cadillac Series 60S. This car has had the Original Cadillac V8 replaced with a GM 350 V8 and a 700R4 Automatic Transmission with vintage air conditioning. The steering is still manual as are the brakes. giving a new owner many options on where to take this car. The sky is the limit! The car originally hailed from California, and is rust-free as a result. The body was sandblasted prior to paint, and received a new grey tweed interior that approximates the Original '41 Interior fairly well. The body is straight and the Chrome and stainless is in very nice condition.The window sills still sport their real wood, a rarity in most cars- this is not painted wood-grain! The dash is painted body color (A modern Ford color called Smokestone). The Original gauge clusters/radio are all in place in the dash although most are not in working condition, and may just have been disconnected during the 12V Conversion process. The previous owner tastefully installed modern Aux gauges for essential readouts like temp, gas gauge, etc. The engine runs strong, and the transmission shifts smoothly. The newly rebuilt brakes stop her effectively. The long hood echoes grace (as does the Goddess Ornament) and achieves thumbs-up status from passers-by and pedestrians alike. The car has recently had completed some drivability and minor upgrades (Under my ownership) as follows: A short list is as follows: 4 New American Classic WWW Radials Brakes fully rebuilt/serviced New Wheel bearings New Electric Carburetor Choke New Electrical system Cutoff Switch Added New Battery Added Turn Signals with 4 way flashers, front and rear Underseat heaters restored and reinstalled (just need plumbing reconnected) New Glovebox liner New Taillight Jewels New Air Filter Restored Cadillac Hood Emblem New Electric Wipers from Newport Engineering Spare Fender Skirt (The original Passenger skirt was damaged during shipping to me), I purchased a good used skirt at a cost of $1500) Some spare parts including New Trim, hubcaps and new Cadillac/Fleetwood lettering from AllCads will be included in the sale. Asking price has been reduced to $14,500 This is your chance to get into a relatively rare car at a great price. All of the hard work has already been done but there's still some minor things left for a car guy to do. You can drive this car as is on tours, cruise ins, parades, etc. She runs great! Its kind of the best of both worlds, as it could be put back to original with minimal effort if one were so inclined. I Can assist in shipping anywhere in the WORLD. Car is located in West Chester, PA. call me for more details. 610-416-4634. Photos can be seen at Flickr: brich2929's Photostream
