    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.

    Re: Some follow up pictures of my new 67 Eldorado

    Congratulations on the purchase. I have owned several 1967 Eldos and loved them all. I now have a 1970. I was lucky to fine a rust free car that had had an unfortunate argument with a telephone pole. The original owners where a retired couple from Florida that kept the car garaged all it's life. They also hardly ever drove it. It has just under 50,000 miles. The couple moved to Michigan and discovered snow! Slid into a pole and did minor damage to the fender and door. Did not touch the rest of the car. I have just finished all of the mechanical's with the exception of the ALC Compressor. I am waiting for the new diaphragm to arrive in the next few days. I was lucky enough to find a CLC member that had an NOS diaphragm. Paid him $150 for it. It is the only one i have seen in the last year or so. They are almost impossible to find. I believe that there is something out there that uses a diaphragm similar enough to use it with modifications but have not yet found it. I have the complete Electronic Level Control from a 80's Fleetwood that i was thinking of retrofitting if i had not found the diaphragm. It would not be too hard as it uses it's own harness and sensors.
    One of the few modifications i would consider if you are going to drive the car a lot is the change to disk brakes from a 1969 or newer. I was never happy with the front drum brakes that my 67 had. Never felt safe. It is a modification i know and i believe in originality as much as possible but when it comes to safety i make an exception. Also sometimes original parts are just not available and substitutions must be made.

    Congrats for your acquisition, Gto. Looks like you have bought a good one. Thank you for posting these pics. I´m sure driving 1,000 miles with your Eldorado have been a wonderful and thrilling adventure. I drove 220 miles when I bought mine, which was in a much worse condition. It was a little scary but we arrived home safe and sound.
