Everyone here recommends rockauto.com to get parts.

There's another guy with a huge Cadillac junkyard, but I can't remember his name...

Cadillac King I think it is. He's got like acres and acres of them.

Check out Hemmings Motor News, widely considered the bible of the old car hobby. I subscribe to Hemmings Classic Car, and I seem to remember a story a while back about a guy (in upstate New York I think) who specialized in Cadillac restoration parts. When I get home tonight, I'll look through my back issues and see if I can find it.

The '64 Cadillac is one of my favorite years. Last of the fins (and very tastefully done), plus the first year for automatic climate control.

I looked up the story (http://www.hemmings.com/hcc/stories/2008/03/01/hmn_feature22.html) on the Hemmings Web site. The company is Exotic Classic Cars and Parts in Gardena, CA. 310-516-6019

You're entirely welcome. Owning a classic car is an expensive hobby, but the fun and beauty of these cars makes it all worth it. Good luck finding the parts you need.

You may have better luck with you questions on the Rear Wheel Drive Forum (http://www.cadillacforums.com/forums/rwd-19xx-1984-deville-fleetwood-1985/?securitytoken=1252116813-0db3480848ce52d68bb99603a15e444c9ddb32f4).

They will be able to help more with your technical needs. As for parts, you can start with junkyarddog.com (http://www.junkyarddog.com/), which will search junkyards throughout the United States, for the parts you need. If your not in the U.S., I'm not sure if they work internationally, but you might still be able to arrange for the shipping.

Greetings and salutations.

Hemmings is certainly the jump-off point. The November issue has nearly 7 pages of contacts under Cadillac Parts.

Good luck on the restoration. '64 was a great design.

Love the 1964 Fleetwood interior. All that wood veneer on the doors and dash is so elegant, esp. with the button-tufted cloth and leather upholstery. Any chance of pics of your car?

I really do hope that you are keeping the car as original restored condition as you can. The 1964 is a beautiful car should be restored as original. You will be proud of the compliments you will get. When done, you should consider showing your car at shows.

Thats the best kind to send, then a year from now we can see the difference.

My latest issue of Hemmings Classic Car had a story about Original Parts Group (http://www.opgi.com/product.asp?catmainid=8) — which started out selling restoration parts for GM A-bodies — has added a Cadillac catalog. And they have both wiring harnesses and decals.
