Mid Century Cadillac Discussion / Re: Series 62 vs Coupe DeVille
« Last post by Dice on Yesterday at 10:22:50 AM »
Well after much waiting the 1960 Coupe Deville is in my garage.
And as you might have guessed, It needs some TLC and a few random parts.
I have not been able to drive it at all due to all the rain here.
So far I know is one power window switch is wired backwards. The power seat is either broken or not hooked up.
The new dash pad is just laying in the car, not bolted down at all and I am missing the ring that holds the ignition switch in.
Also missing is the Golve box latch and the trim over the headlights, one pc on the fender and one pc on the hood.... the hood crest is gone and the trunk V is too sad to put back on.

Its all minor stuff that will be easy to fix but I need some dry days! As you can see my garage is a little cramped with a 56 Merc and this 60 Cadillac.

Love your car! Thats a great color for a limo.

I got a nice surprise text this morning. The car is in North Carolina and I assumed the 2 hurricanes had delayed things. But instead they just finished the body and jambs!

Will a series 41 (1957-1958) saber wheels work properly on a 55 Cadillac if not why?

Dan, put me on the list for the LH 61/62 fender. Does he have a good RH fender too? A good interior would help my project as well. Now I need a 61 ignition switch or the good guts of one also.

I went back yesterday and managed to find the matching fender. It appears to be in equally good shape. The down side is the old fella wants $500 per fender! They would come as pictured though with trim etc. I didn't really see an interior that would need a total restoration so that may be a non starter. He would have no problem with the ignition switch.

I received the material samples for your car.  It looks like SMS fabric prices went up from when I requested mine.

When I get the rest of my house items taken care of for the winter I will begin stripping my seats to make patterns.   I will use these patterns and make a test seat cover in leather or vinyl. If the test turns out nice great. If I need to make adjustments it will let me know.

If you decide to have me make your seat covers you will be able to see a sample before we invest any money.  I will give you a materials list that you can order and send to me.

Please take a look at your stitching. See if you can notice what color it is.  Unfortunately it was nylon thread. And nylon fades bad. I will need to search for the appropriate thread color. It should be Tex135 size.  Normally I can purchase individual spoils of good thread from a company called Coats.
