Questions on a 1963 Cadillac
« on: November 06, 2007, 03:06:27 PM »
I recently purchased a 63 Series 62 Coupe and looking for a good place where I can see where everything is suppose to go on the car.  It came with a trunk full of chorme pieces and other bits and I can't figure out where everything goes.  Does the shop manual have a parts schematic of the car or maybe is there a site with detailed pictures of the inside and outside of the car so I can try and visually match up where everything is going. 

I spent last weekend polishing all the pieces and now want to put it back on the car through the winter.  Thanks for you help.

G'day Chris,

Sounds like you have a Jigsaw Puzzle on your hands.

But, seriously, with good pictures, and the Workshop Manual in hand, it shouldn't be that hard to figure out which pieces go where.   Just don't try and force anything into a shape that it isn't meant to be.

The Shop Manual will have a section showing what the pieces are called with a diagram of the car from the Firewall back, but won't actually show the pieces off the car.

Hello Chris,

Try posting some pics of the parts on the website specifically for '63 and '64 Cadillacs: http://www.6364cadillac.com/

Also, keep in mind the things Bruce said.
