Need pictures of 1940 cadillac A-pillar
« on: December 06, 2017, 07:16:39 PM »
Hello all,

I'm trying to rebuild the A-pillar but not much left after blasting can someone help with a few pictures with and without fender on. The more the better.

Thanks!

I might have some pictures in the rough but the cars are back together now.  There are a lot of different body structures in 40, 60S, 62, 72 and 75/90.  Which one are we working with.

Series 62 Coupe.

I figured they might all be the same. If you have any pictures that'd be great. There looks like there was a cast piece and not sure how it was attached.

This page might help you. It's from my 41 body service manual so might be similar in that area but you really should get yourself a 1940 body service book. They are invaluable.

You have a 62 series because you have the cast aluminum piece.  See attached pictures.  They may help some.  One never has the exact picture that you need.

Thanks. That is very helpful. I ordered the manual. I hope it says how it is attached. Interesting they used an aluminum piece.

In 41 it's just slotted into the rocker panel and a small bolt through the bottom of the cowl leg.
