Mid Century Cadillac Discussion / Cadillac Salesmen
« Last post by kimberlin1974 on Today at 07:44:50 AM »
 I thought I might share an interesting discovery I found out about my car. I have owned my Cadillac for 7 years now and during that time I have spent a great deal of effort in learning everything I can about its history. I was very lucky to have the original owners identification card which has been a great help in learning a lot about it. In addition to that the second page of owners manual had an interesting signature (Ed Snyder) I was curious as to who this was. I knew it wasn't the original owner so I thought maybe the salesmen? With that in mind I started searching the newspaper archives for an Ed Snyder in connection with the dealership my car came from. What I found was beyond my greatest expectations. I found an article from august of 1956 Just a few months before my car was to be sold new introducing a new Cadillac salesmen named Ed Snyder. I think it's a pretty safe bet that this was the original salesmen that sold my Cadillac 61 years ago how cool is that!  :)

You have a Coupe Deville according to the title.  I can't wait to see the pictures.  I love the 60 model year.

One easy way to tell, assuming the seat has not been replaced, is that the Series 62 does not have a front center armrest.  Also, if the car has manual windows, it is a Series 62.

Mid Century Cadillac Discussion / Re: Body and Paint in Chicago?

You say you are in a Chicago suburb.  Would that be a northern, southern or western suburb?

If northern, I would heartly recommend Bennett Coachworks in Milwaukee, WI.

Tell 'em Dave Yaros recommended them.

General Discussions / Re: 1962 - Bubbles in Radiator
« Last post by Scott62 on September 19, 2018, 06:17:38 AM »
Sorry for late response.... The foamy bubbles only appear when engine reaches near normal operating temp like 170 to 180 degrees F. During warm up everything looks normal....no air bubbles/foam. With thermostat installed, my temp gauges pegs full scale when motor approaches the 180 degree mark. As thermostat opens the bubbles appear are in full force and stay steady from there. As flow increases in cooling system with the opening of the thermostat, the temp gauge slowly comes back in range. My guess is the extra circulation carries the bubbles away from the temp sensor and some liquid contact is re-established. I believe my issue is with the left cylinder head area which has the temp sending unit. One other observation: my IR temp gun shows the left cylinder head to be 10 to 15 degree F hotter as the engine warms up and after the bubbles appear. The warm up-bubble process is very repeatable so I'm afraid I have an internal engine issue. I doubt that it would be entrapped air as it would eventually work its way out.....any more thoughts are appreciated.
