    After 4 years of work I finally got some gloss on my 64 caddy. I went through the whole car rebuilding the entire drivetrain and 429. Seats all upholstered in white tuck n roll. Nosed, decked and shaved the doorhandles, side trim and beltline trim under rear window, and no wipes. It was an exciting day to finally see it all shiny!! Cant wait to see it buffed and in the sun this week. Color is black cherry. Heres some pics of the build....

    56 Caddy caps (the deep ones) look nice on those early 60s Caddy's. They look alot like the stock ones only nicer, you should give it a try.
