1942 Cadillac parts wanted
« on: November 17, 2017, 05:08:24 AM »
Hello,
I just bought 1942 Cadillac Series 63. The car is in very orginal condition but need some parts, so I'm lookin for:
- fog lights delete covers ('46 delete covers now instaled)
- front bumper guards in good condition
- side fender spears in good condition
- rear fenders stone guards
- one 15x5-1/2 rim
- one 15" "sombrero" hub cap (1947-52 style)

Here some pics with my Caddy  :)

Believe it or not, the fender trim and stone guards on your car are much better than most of the 1942s around. Treat them carefully and find a craftsman that can repair what you've got including the stone guards. Other 1942 owners will chime in soon I'm sure with suggestions. Nice car and welcome.

1942 Cadillacs are supposed to have the same hubcaps as 1941 models.   Sombreros didn't come out until 1947.   Very nice car though.   Where are you located?

Piter,
  Here is a picture of 1942 fog lamp delete plates. You should be able to make a piece from sheet metal and install it from the back side and painting the low spots black as they are. Mine are not worth shipping and restoration costs and I keep them in case I break a lens in the fog lamp. The lens are very hard to find and quite expensive to purchase.
