    Sorry for the delay I will post a few more. This car has about 50% original paint. No bondo, a weak magnet sticks everywhere. The vinyl roof was replaced years ago. It appears to be original material. I purchased it from the second owner who owned it from the late 70's. I have the protect-o-plate, original owners manual. It was bought from Daniels Cadillac out of Harford Connecticut new. Spent most of its life in the Midwest. I drove it close to 1000 miles home. It runs flawlessly. My goal is to continue to detail it under the hood, underneath and anywhere else it needs attention.

    Thanks for the website, I look forward to learning and contributing.

    Need some advice on obtaining a rebuild kit for the alc compressor. It's missing in the engine compartment, but I have it. It has a torn diaphragm. I will replace that jobber master cylinder and any other incorrect parts. All in all it's all numbers matching except for the alternator and starter.

    You sir, are a brave soul to drive an (new to you) old car 1000 miles after buying it! Wow! Looks great! I am curious, what kind of mileage did it get on the highway?

    I just reviewed my receipts. I averaged 11.46 miles per gallon. I never let it get below a quarter tank. I put 56.00 per tank of premium every time I filled it. At an average of 3.89 per gallon. That's 14.39 gallons every fill up. Times 6 tanks, that's 86.38 gallons of fuel. Door to door 990 miles. With tolls I spent the same amount of money to ship it by Reliable. I looked it over and it was everything the seller said it was. Receipts show the oil was changed every 2,000 miles. I just changed the valve cover gaskets and the rockers and valves look like new. I did fully service the car before the trip. I changed the oil, transmission fluid, power steering fluid and bled the brakes. Now I can honestly say its a good car and you can drive it anywhere. It was a lot of fun.
