66 S&S Victoria
 
Looking for any help for parts any part helps she's in rough shape.

John ED Renstrom 10-07-2019 11:40 AM

What is your most wanted piece. Or you looking for a parts car.

Kurt Arends 10-07-2019 02:33 PM

C-W Coach in Cinti has a '66 Cadillac Series 75 limousine parts car for cheap.

Depends on the shape of the other car but most important parts would be a hubcap,gas door and a back glass with trim

John ED Renstrom 10-07-2019 09:46 PM

Post a picture i may have the cap.

1966 Victoria C-W Coach Sales
 
C-W Coach Sales has a green hearse last advertised as part of THE DALE COOPER COLLECTION. That was in the late 1980"s...Definitely is still in their garage with cracked windshield and rust.

Kurt Arends 11-08-2019 10:46 AM

"The Dale Cooper Collection" might also have 1 or 2 of the wheel covers! :D

Michael Baccari 11-13-2019 09:13 AM

Thanks for the info. Does anyone know the best way to get in contact with Dale Cooper?

John ED Renstrom 11-13-2019 12:51 PM

The wheel covers are standard caddy for the year. S&S just removed the crest drilled a couple of holes in them and added the logo centers. The centers were the same across there line for at least 10 years either direction. Back glass will be builder only but if you find it get the rubber also as you will need it. What a lot of people have done is pot in a piece of lexan till they can locate one. You can just urethane it in place.

Kurt Arends 11-13-2019 07:21 PM

C-W Coach probably has the correct back glass. Correct is always better than plex! It will require a trip to Cincinnati though.

this is what im working with

John ED Renstrom 02-21-2020 04:49 PM

cw coach has a web site with there phone number on it. looks good not a bad body. the bad place on them is were the top and the quarters meet they has a natural water trap there that would give you rust issues. then they nailed the top one front and rear. so one more place for the rust to start. how is the interior?

Michael Baccari 02-26-2020 09:14 AM

interior is really nice with a few extra seats in the back and a custom bench that folds into a bed. I've checked with cw coach he said he doesn't have any thing for it. The main thing now is finding a windshield cause its cracked and the roof is rotted out right above it.

Paul Steinberg 02-26-2020 11:23 AM

New windshields are available from any LOF dealer, or directly from Pilkington Glass. You need to find a competent body shop that can restore the glass opening and the roof rot before you do anything else. Make sure that they carefully cut out the original glass, so they can use it to check the repair for clearance / tolerances before the new glass is attempted. Also, purchase all new windshield molding clips, and have any damage to the stainless steel moldings repaired prior to the install. You are probably looking at at least $1000 in body work repair, unless it is only a small area that needs repairing. Most shops charge a lot to do restoration work on older cars, because of the complexities of the job.

Is your intention to restore the interior (front and rear) to its original configuration?

I'm not sure what i want to do with the interior. But for now my main concern is redoing the exterior so i can keep the water out. The main thing I'm worried about is the windshield it seems to be a mystery of what it is.

Kurt Arends 04-03-2020 08:37 AM

What is the mystery with the windshield???

Peter Grave 04-03-2020 09:58 AM

From your pictures it appears to be a standard commercial car windshield. Glued is as they all were in that era

Michael Baccari 04-21-2020 07:39 AM

not sure what the mystery is with the windshield but all five that I've received have been small. I'm waiting on another one the part number is DW678 not sure if it will fit but the measurements seem to be correct.

If the windshields are "SMALL" top to bottom they are sending you passenger car windshields. In that era there was only one commercial car windshield any lower windshield would be a Passenger car. They were expensive then as now. Actually in todays dollars versus yesterdays dollars in may be cheaper.

John ED Renstrom 04-21-2020 11:28 AM

That would be the correct number for the glass. Looks like it is moving a long nicly.

Michael Baccari 04-22-2020 09:25 AM

That's the only good thing to come out of this lock down. I'm trying to find out how many of these were made cause i cant even find a picture of another one. I did find a date on the inside of the top saying October fifth 1965. Is there a way to find out the number built and how many are still alive? By the way it's going flat black with a black top. What does everyone think about that? I'm still trying to find a back glass ,S&S badge for the hub cap and a fuel door.

Paul Steinberg 04-22-2020 11:19 AM

The windshield would be the last thing that I would be installing, since glass is very unforgiving. It doesn't take much to crack it in the process of restoration. I would leave the glass at the glass shop until you are finished with the roof repair and painting.

Michael Baccari 04-28-2020 08:44 AM

Decided the driver side fender is way to far gone to repair. Does anyone have a lead on one?

There weren't many S&S cars sold in this part of the country, but I'll keep an eye out for a parts car.

John ED Renstrom 05-08-2020 11:51 AM

One panel at a time. Getting there I'll check out my pictures i may have a shot of the one on that 73 i did.

Michael Baccari 05-12-2020 09:32 AM

fuel door
 
my fuel door is round and on the drivers quarter

Martyn Donaldson 05-12-2020 11:00 AM

Ed, The fuel door on S&S coaches of the '60s are unique and specific to that coachbuilder. This is what Mr. Baccari is looking for -

Michael Baccari 05-13-2020 07:57 AM

I can't believe that I have the last one in the world, But i cant find any pictures of a 66 victoria anywhere.

John ED Renstrom 05-13-2020 01:52 PM

first question is that a door or a cap? door would be hinged you reach threw it to remove the cap. a cap you twist off the filer neck. the only one I can think of like this is the cap off a jeep wagoner. they had a chrome one with a black handle. this one looks cast to me

I would assume , same as the 61. Cap that is hinged.

John ED Renstrom 05-13-2020 09:17 PM

Then a spring load to keep it closed.

Michael Baccari 05-14-2020 08:09 AM

it is hinged to the front and it looks to be pot metal. i have a tiny piece of it along with the spring and the mount.

Peter Grave 05-14-2020 09:56 AM

Back in that day Pot Metal would have been the cheapest way to make it. You need to find some one who has one and access to the 3D printing. They could make one all but the hinge. The president of our local Radio Club is a Prof. at Lehigh University and they have been making rare radio knobs this way. He brought some to a meeting and said they did not have the technology to do big stuff but its out there. Lets check in with computer geeks.
