1959 Authenticity Manual
« on: December 04, 2021, 07:18:11 PM »
Does anyone know who is working on the manual? I pulled my transmission and engine and have a number of questions.

Hello Ivan

Glad to learn of your progress with the 1959 Cadillac. Unfortunately, the only person that can find the 1959-1960 Cadillac Authenticity Manual is Dr. Jack Griffin aka Claude Rains. To receive the best counsel regarding your transmission I recommend Ronald Threadgill Please contact me if you have any other questions.

Thanks Chuck:

What I'm also looking for is what is supposed to be painted on the engine and transmission. I'm not sure that it follows the same as the 1958. Also I'm looking for colors of the engine compartment.
If you have any guidance, I would appreciate it.

Maybe this will help.

Note that if equipped with air conditioning, the numerical stamping on radiator is "35", not 34.

Also, the yellow silk screened decal on the radiator support would only be present if coolant was originally installed in the radiator (either Z1 (-10 deg F) or Z2 (-20 deg F) recorded on the build sheet). The decal indicated which. Cars destined for warm climates would have rust inhibitor additive only and would not have the decal.
