I have a 1931 Cadillac town sedan 355A the car needs restoration. Engine runs and is still in the car engine, gearbox diff are all still complete and in the chassis. The car is 99% complete with a lot of extra parts that are hard to find and very salable after restoration. The body is strait and needs to be seen to be believed. Front guards are mint, no rust in the body at all, six wire wheels, new tires, all seats are in tacked including wood work and springs, all wood work in the car is good. I have the original luggage rack, a mint dash panel most gauges, vacuum wiper system, all lights,cowl lights, running boards. Doors are complete.

General Technical Help / Re: 1959 rear wheel bearings
« Last post by pdm59 on September 21, 2017, 07:01:14 PM »
 I ended up taking the safe option and took my 59 fleetwood to the mechanic to do rear bearings, cost me $250 in labor only I supplied bearings. While up on the hoist greased all points and checked to see everything was in order. May sound a lot to those that are capable of doing there own mechanical works, but to those like me who are unsure it's very quick easy way out. No mess no hassle. :cool: :cool: :cool:

Cadillac Chat Room / Re: 53 cadillac hood latch
« Last post by Quentin Hall on September 16, 2017, 09:02:48 AM »
I'm going to be coming to Melbourne soon to pick up a large quantity of STOLEN 53 parts. Sadly there is still a large quantity of very valuable parts still to be returned to me. As a fellow 53 owner you will know how debilitating a theft of that magnitude would hurt.
I'll be commencing legal action to sue the thief through the Magistrates Court to reclaim the outstanding parts and damages.
Perhaps when I'm down there we can meet up for a beer.

Just realised who this Pete Smith is. Bet he has a  Cadillac. With a nicely restored rear bumper, gold 24k Cadillac fenderscripts and nos guide spotlights. And really nice rechromed foglights housings. . . . You know the ones that are really expensive to restore.
Looking forward to seeing pics.

Hi Paul, it should be a relatively straightforward job for a decent mechanic.
I'm not sure where you're situated in Melbourne but if you're anywhere near Hallam it may be worth contacting Lee Franklin at Memphis Auto Repairs 8786 3760. Lee has a couple of Cad's himself and is not afraid to work on older cars.

Cheers,
Arnold.

G'day Paul,

A simple task.   Just follow the shop manual and take heed of the measurements, and you cannot go wrong.

Plus, get the best bearings you can, SKF, etc, BUT DO NOR BUY OFF EBAY, unless you know they are not Chinese.

Plus, they ARE expensive.   I purchased a pair some 20 years ago, and they were over AU$140.00 each.

My last one went to Western Australia.

Bruce. :devil:
