6300 Eldorado Generation 4 Series 64-63P 6367P Convertible





The off-again/on-again rear fender skirts were gone again for 1964. Otherwise, this year's Fleetwood Eldorado convertible looked very much like the '63 Biarritz. Price went up by a paltry $22, but performance went up in a big way as both bore and stroke were increased to 104.9mm x 101.6mm for 7 Litters and 340 hp. A significant development was the arrival of GM's new Turbo-Hydramatic transmission.

The Eldorado received a minor facelift for 1964. The main visual cue indicating an Eldorado Biarritz rather than a De Ville convertible was simply the lack of fender skirts. New up front was a bi-angular grille that formed a V-shape along both its vertical and horizontal planes bisected by a central body-coloured horizontal bar. Outer grille extension panels again housed the parking and cornering lamps. It was the 17th consecutive year for the Cadillac tailfins with a new fine-blade design carrying on the tradition. Performance improvements including a larger 429 cubic inch V8 engine were the dominant changes for the model run. Equipment features were same as in 1963 for the most part. Comfort Control, a completely automatic heating and air conditioning system controlled by a dial thermostat on the instrument panel, was introduced as an industry first. Performance gains from the new engine showed best in the lower range, at 20 to 50 mph (30 to 80 km/h) traffic driving speeds. Series 62., 75. and the Commercial Chassis continued with the old Hydra-Matic until 1965.
