The Fleetwood Sixty Special Sedan with its exclusive new 133" wheelbase and 227.5" over-all length is also offered with a new Brougham option. New front end styling features a wider grille and hood, dual vertical headlamps, parking lamps in the new drop center front bumper and larger cornering lamps. With a new wider front and rear tread, the new front end design accents the lower, wider, road-hugging stance of Cadillac for 1965. New rear end styling is marked by horizontal lines of straight-across rear bumper and deck sill grille and grouping of all rear lamps in vertical chrome housings integrally designed with rear quarter panels. New body styling includes a newflush,top contour on rear quarter panels, curved, frameless glass side windows, new rocker sill moldings on Fleetwood models, new side moldings on Calais and De Ville models and new wheel discs on all models. Convertibles have new tempered rear window glass. New interiors provide increased spaciousness, lower floor tunnels, new trim styles and upholstery, new instrument panel styling and greater convenience of all controls. chassis New perimeter frame design permits forward mounting of engine thus resulting in lower floor tunnel height and increased interior roominess. New body to frame mounting isolates road noise for greater quietness. New front and rear suspension contributes to greater comfort and stability and a more level ride. New whitewall tires (optional at extra cost except on the Fleetwood Eldorado Convertible) contribute to lower silhouette of the car and have tread design extended onto shoulder of tire for smoother, quieter cornering. 4 New drive line with one-piece propeller shaft with constant velocity joints, more rigid rear axle housing and pre-stressed wheel bearings assures maximum dependability, quietness and long life. (Two-piece propeller shaft on Fleetwood 75 models.) New Turbo Hydra-Matic has variable stator (except on Fleetwood 75 models) for increased selectivity of acceleration and now provides two Drive range positions, one for normal driving conditions, the other for hilly or mountainous terrain and increased engine braking. engine New engine features include specially designed mountings for maximum idling smoothness, computer designed 7-blade fan and new cross-flow radiator for increased cooling efficiency and quietness, improved electrical system for surer starting and a revolutionary new coaxial resonator exhaust system sonically balanced for maximum quietness. optional equipment New Twilight Sentinel and Guide-Matic controls are located in headlamp switch nacelle for added convenience. GuideMatic photocell is newly located behind radiator grille for maximum sensitivity to headlamps and taillights of other cars but without interference from overhead lighting. New location of Comfort Control components on engine side of dash panel permits greater front compartment roominess. Larger heaterfloorduct for 1965 assures improved distribution of air to rear compartment. New Cruise Control has illuminated dial and new lock-in switch for automatic cruising which requires no re-setting after brake application. New Automatic Level Control automatically levels the car to compensate for any increase or decrease in loading of rear compartment or luggage compartment or for trailer towing. Standard on Fleetwood Eldorado Convertible and Sixty Special Sedan and with Brougham option. New Power Door Locks are activated by front door lock push buttons. New provision unlocks all doors when either front door is opened with inside handle or by unlocking either door with key. 5 1965 Cadillac Styling For 1965, Cadillac presents a styling concept certain to attract a host of new admirers while further entrenching itself in the affections of present Cadillac owners. It is so new . . . from grille and vertical headlamps to rear quarter panel and rear lamp housings . . . as to excite the interest of any viewer. It is so right . . . in its balanced proportions and sleek symmetry . . . that even the most discerning fine car connoisseur must voice assent. It is so obviously Cadillac . . . in the strength, dignity and inherent integrity of its design . . . that your most dedicated Cadillac owners will be quick to acclaim this newest creation in the Cadillac tradition. 6 Fleetwood Sixty Special Sedan Newest of the Cadillac family for 1965 is the magnificent Fleetwood Sixty Special Sedan. It truly stands alone among the world's luxury sedans with its exclusive new 133-inch wheelbase and all that this connotes in riding quality and roominess. And in its new longer length. And of course, it bears the identifying Wreath and Crest insignia, distinctive rocker sill moldings and rich interior appointments exclusive to the Fleetwood name. Here indeed, is the luxury sedan whose elegance, grace and stature are certain to make it the unchallenged high fashion leader for 1965. Fleetwood Eldorado Convertible The sweeping lines and Fleetwood decor of the Eldorado Convertible bring open car luxury to new heights for 1965. From grille to rear lamp housings it embodies the finest in Cadillac styling advancements combined with special Fleetwood distinction. Its new stretchable, pleated top boot, for example, has a self-adhering edge which eliminates former sliding channel mounting and assures a sleek fit. And its host of luxury equipment even includes a new Level Control which automatically levels the car as necessary to compensate for rear seat, luggage compartment or trailer loading. 8 01 6 Coupe de Ville The elegance and distinction that have made the Coupe de Ville the world's most desirable luxury coupe were never more evident than in 1965. As with other De Ville body styles, it bears its proud name in chrome script on the rear quarter panel and has a distinguishing wide cove belt molding with brushed chrome finish. New, longer, lower lines of the Coupe de Ville feature clean, vertical side panels relieved only by a tapered chrome body side molding extending the length of the car. Calais Hardtop Sedan Cadillac styling for 1965, as exemplified by the Calais Hardtop Sedan, combines an aura of strength and roadhugging stability achieved not only by the actual lower over-all height, but by the positioning of vertical twin headlamps and vertical rear light housings to emphasize maximum width. The new wider radiator grille, wider hood and the new wider tread, front and rear, further contribute to Cadillac's solid stature and broad shouldered look for 1965. 11 Keynoting front end styling are the wide-spaced vertical headlamps, clean uniformity of wider, chrome framed grille and the low placement of parking lamps in new drop-center front bumper. The result is strong visual emphasis on the road-hugging stability of the car itself. New vertical headlamp location clearly indicates width of car. What's more, headlamps are not hidden by projecting fender sides as on some cars and thus are visible to drivers approaching from the side. Headlamp division bar extends into wheel opening molding for continuity of design. 12 Rear ensemble presents a new unity of design. The vertical rear lamp housings perfectly complement the clean contours of new rear quarter panels. Width of car is emphasized by horizontal lines of rear deck, rear bumper and deck sill grille molding. Integral styling of rear quarter panels and rear lamp housings imparts a feeling of massive strength and contributes to the crisp uncluttered appearance apparent throughout the length of the car. Deck sill grilles have vertical crossbars on Fleetwood models, horizontal lines only on De Ville and Calais Series. 13 headlamps Newly styled vertical headlamps assure efficient illumination ahead as well as on to the road shoulders. Upper lamps are lighted for normal driving, all four headlamps when bright beam floor switch is depressed. parking and directional signal lamps Recessed into the lower bumper bar for protection against damage from other cars' bumpers, the parking and directional signal lamps have new rectangular styling in harmony with grille and license plate holder. directional signal indicator lamps Located at the forward end of the front fender crown moldings, amber-lensed lights recessed into chrome housings indicate to driver direction of turn being signaled by directional signal lever. cornering lamps Larger for 1965 and with a newly styled protective chromed grille, cornering lamps illuminate the roadside for better visibility when rounding curves or turning corners at night. 14 rear lamp assembly The 1965 rear lamp assembly presents a distinctive appearance with its white lens around a rectangular red reflector. At night entire lens area shows red for stop, turn indicator or taillights, but casts a white beam of light to the rear when the shift lever is in the reverse (R) position. wheel discs New wheel discs of bright and brushed chrome are deeply concave with a series of concentric rings around the raised hub. Centered in the hub is the Cadillac Crest in color and chrome. gas filler cover Improved access to gas tank filler tube is provided by wider opening of hinged license plate holder and more accessiblefillertube location. deck lid lock The deck lid lock is shielded from water, dirt, snow and ice by pivoted Crest section of rear deck ornamentation. Pivoting Crest to right exposes lock. 15 Sleekly contoured roof lines for 1965 flow smoothly into the rear deck. Coupe body styles in the Calais Series, shown above, or in the De Ville Series are a close coupled design with wide rear window pillars which enhance the apparent length of hood and rear deck. Hardtop Sedan de Ville, shown, has a wide, bright and brushed chrome cove molding beneath the side windows. On the Calais Hardtop Sedan, body color extends up to the narrow chrome reveal molding. Padded vinyl tops are available on all De Ville models. 16 The new Sedan de Ville, shown, and Calais Sedan for 1965 have a slim new center pillar. It is gracefully curved in keeping with the new frameless glass door windows. On all Calais and De Ville Sedan models the forward edge of the rear window pillars has a sweeping rearward slant. The exciting and entirely new Fleetwood Sixty Special Sedan has its own exclusive upper structure distinguished not only by its greater length but by curved glass rear vent windows, distinctive new full center pillar design and the Wreath and Crest on the upper rear quarter panel. 17 Brougham Option for the Fleetwood Sixty Special Sedan provides the special distinction of a padded, textured, coated-fabric roof covering outlined by a molding of two fine chrome lines divided by a stripe in roof color. Upper quarter panel has name Brougham in chrome script in addition to Wreath and Crest. In keeping with the dignity and exclusiveness of the Fleetwood Seventy-Five Sedan and Limousine, these magnificent motor cars with their sculptured, angular roofline feature a rectangular rear window of restricted area and wide rear quarter panels for maximum rear compartment privacy. 18 new interior styling From the moment one opens the door of a 1965 Cadillac, it is evident that here is a new experience in interior convenience, comfort, luxury and beauty. The driver will immediately note the smart appearance and new viewing and operating convenience of instruments and controls . . . and his passenger will find in the front compartment a new and unparalleled comfort and roominess even by Cadillac standards. 19 Entranceways are more spacious and the door sill lower for 1965 contributing further to Cadillac's already exceptional ease of entry or exit. And, of course, the graceful curve of the new frameless door glass, its elegance and beauty, are even more apparent when a car door is opened. 20 TWILIGHT SENTINEL SENSITIVITY CONTROL AIR CONDITIONER /SENSOR TWILIGHT SENTINEL AUTOMATIC HEADLAMP TIMER CONTROL CLOCK IGNITION SWITCH GUIDE-MATIC HEADLAMP CONTROL RADIO CONTROL KNOBS TRUNK LOCK WARNING LIGHT COURTESY LIGHT COURTESY LIGHT CONDITIONER OUTLET AIR CONDITIONER OUTLET 'REAR WINDOW DE-FOGGER OR CONVERTIBLE TOP CONTROL OR 75 SEAT SWITCH GLOVE COMPARTMENT LOCK 20A glove compartment and ash receivers Functional beauty of the 1965 Cadillac, as evidenced throughout the car, is apparent in the convenient accessibility to driver and passengers of the centrally located cigarette lighter and dual ash receivers. Directly beneath the ash receivers is the new bin type glove compartment designed so that, when opened, its side walls prevent objects from falling out. more spacious front passenger compartment The added spaciousness and sense of true lounge chair relaxation enjoyed by the front seat passenger is a benefit directly attributable to the ingenuity of Cadillac engineering. Design of the new frame which permitted moving the engine forward, also permitted relocating heater and air conditioning ducts to the engine compartment leaving considerably more room ahead of the front seat passenger. additional details of new interiors more convenient brake pedal and accelerator operation For 1965 the floor area beneath the brake pedal has been recessed slightly permitting a lower brake pedal more nearly level with the accelerator yet without reducing brake pedal travel. The result is faster pivoting of foot from accelerator to brake and faster, more convenient left foot application for those who prefer it. Accelerator has recess at base for high heels as a convenience to women drivers. steering wheel The 1965 optional extra-cost Tilt and Telescope steering wheel is a new three spoke design with horn activator bars mounted in each spoke. Insignia on the center hub is a Cadillac Crest or on Fleetwood models the Wreath and Crest. Two spoke steering wheel is provided as standard equipment. radio controls The radio control knobs as well as the tuning dial are now located higher up on the instrument panel where adjustment of the radio is not only more convenient but permits tuning with less of the driver's conscious attention. 22 ignition switch Newly located higher on the instrument panel, the ignition switch is more convenient and, at the same time, out of the way of any likelihood of contact with driver's knees. coupe front seat center armrest Now provided on all Cadillac coupe models is a wide, front seat center armrest. This comfort and convenience feature also serves to divide the coupe seat backs so that they both may be inclined forward at the same time to aid rear seat passengers as they enter or leave the car. larger, more legible electric clock Designed to complement the headlamp switch nacelle at the left side of the instrument cluster, the new Cadillac electric clock is larger for 1965 and illuminated at night. It is clearly legible even to rear compartment passengers. 23 1965 Cadillac body styles The wide range of Cadillac body styles enables you to meet the requirements of every luxury motor car prospect.

Thus it is of special importance that the benefits of each item of optional equipment and accessory in this section be explained before he places his order for the car.

Having set the dial, to say 70°, the owner can drive from desert heat on up into cold mountain altitudes without any need for dial adjustment. And, when the outside temperature is above approximately 35°, incoming air is directed through the cooled evaporator thus controlling humidity for maximum comfort and minimizing window fogging. Directing this automatic operation are three temperature sensitive thermistors located to sense outside air temperature, effect of the sun and temperature of air being discharged into the car. They electronically signal other units of the system to achieve the proper blending of heated and/or cooled air and blower speed to hold car interior to temperature setting of the dial. Comfort Control lever may be set at first position for normal operation or second position (red arrow) for fast cool down when car has been standing in hot sun. Comfort Control also provides two defrost positions; the first for de-fogging, the second for de-icing the windshield. Higher location of center air-conditioning outlet and larger heaterfloorduct increase air distribution to rear compartment passengers for 1965. 50 Fleetwood Seventy-Five model air conditioningheating system — With their considerably longer length, larger interiors and, in the case of the limousine glass separated rear compartment, the Fleetwood Seventy-Five models have instead of Comfort Control an air conditioningheating system unique to these body styles. Rear compartment controls are provided in a compartment just off the right-hand rear armrest. In addition, large airconditioning outlets with adjustable louvers are located in the roof at each side of the rear compartment for maximum air distribution. Heater outlets for the rear compartment are located on the base of the armrests at each side of the rear seat. soft ray glass A natural complement to air conditioned cars, Cadillac Soft Ray Glass shields the interior of the car from the heat and glare of the sun for increased comfort and improved visibility. Available on all Cadillac models, Soft Ray Glass installation includes tinted glass on all windows (except the rear window of convertible body styles) with additional shading on the upper portion of the windshield. 51 Cadillac tilt and telescope steering wheel To all of the much appreciated advantages of being able to tilt the steering wheel to any of a wide range of positions, Cadillac has added the plus benefit of a telescoping adjustment which permits moving the steering wheel closer to, or farther away from the driver over a 3-inch range of adjustment. Turning the center hub of the steering' wheel counterclockwise permits telescoping to length desired; turning hub clockwise locks wheel in position. This exclusive new feature assures that any member of the Cadillac owner's family may precisely adjust the steering wheel to the most natural and comfortable position for his or her driving habits. On long trips the ability to change the tilt or telescope position of the steering wheel while driving is a major aid in relieving tension and minimizing fatigue. Varying the tilt adjustment is achieved simply by lifting upward on a small lever located on the left side of the steering column just below the turn signal indicator, moving the steering wheel to the desired angle then releasing lever to lock wheel in position. As a further benefit for ease in entering or leaving the car, the Tilt and Telescope Steering Wheel is spring loaded so that lifting the lever automatically tilts the steering wheel to its uppermost position. 52 power seat adjustment (six-way) The Six-Way Power Seat Adjustment permits horizontal, vertical and angle adjustment for maximum seating comfort. Only the vertical and seat-angle provisions need be ordered on models where horizontal adjustment is standard. The Fleetwood Eldorado with regular front seat has the six-way seat adjustment as standard. Horizontal adjustment only is provided on Seventy-Five models. power seat adjustment (four-way for bucket seats only) The Four-Way Power Adjustment permits horizontal and seat-angle adjustment for the driver's seat of bucket seat equipped models. It is standard on the Eldorado. Horizontal adjustment only is provided as standard with bucket seat option. 53 twilight sentinel (automatic headlamp timer) The Cadillac Twilight Sentinel with controls conveniently located on the headlamp switch nacelle provides two major benefits. When ignition is ON and the Twilight Sentinel control knob turned to automatic position, the headlights of the car will turn on automatically with approach of dusk, on storm-darkened days, in fog or vision-obscuring sand and dust. When sufficient daylight returns headlights are automatically turned off. With Twilight Sentinel knob in manual position, the headlamp switch is used to turn lights on or off to meet such special requirements as when driving in funeral processions or through brightly lighted tunnels. Twilight Sentinel also provides a delayed shut-off provision which permits leaving headlights and either cornering light (as determined by position of the directional signal lever) lighted for up to a minute and a half after turning off the ignition, thus providing a pathway of light away from the car for added nighttime security. 54 guide-matic (headlamp control) Guide-Matic controls, too, are newly located on the headlamp switch nacelle. As a contribution to safer nighttime driving, Guide-Matic automatically dims the headlights of the Cadillac owner's car when another approaches from the opposite direction or when the Cadillac driver draws closer to the taillights of a car ahead. An overriding switch is provided to signal drivers who neglect to dim their bright lights in return. New location of the Guide-Matic photocell behind the radiator grille assures maximum sensitivity to headlamps and taillights of other cars without interference from overhead lighting. In addition, the Guide-Matic control may be adjusted by the driver to provide just the right degree of photocell sensitivity to meet his preference. power door locks Cadillac Power Door Locks are especially appreciated by women or when children are passengers. Simply pressing down either front door lock button locks all doors; lifting button or opening front door with inside handle unlocks all doors. New convenience for 1965, especially in bad weather, is that all doors are automatically unlocked when driver turns key in either front door. 55 Cadillac automatic level control Car never rear always end dip rides level. regardless . . of load. The new Cadillac Automatic Level Control keeps the car level with the roadway regardless of rear compartment, luggage compartment or trailer loading. The benefits, in addition to maintaining best appearance, are better handling, more accurate headlamp aiming, minimum possibility of "bottoming" even on severe bumps, and less chance of the rear bumper scraping the ground when car encounters a steeply angled ramp or driveway. Of importance to any Cadillac owner, these features are certain to have special appeal to sportsmen, salesmen and motoring vacationists. In operation the Automatic Level Control provides pressurized air from a compressor and air reservoir to a 56 valve located on the rear crossmember of the frame. Whenever there is sufficient rear end loading to deflect the suspension (or springs) one-half inch or more, the valve opens permitting pressurized air to enter special air chambers in the shock absorbers, thus extending the shock absorbers to bring the car back to level height. When weight is removed, the valve is reactivated to permit exhausting of air from the shock absorbers to lower the car again to a level height. To assure height adjustment only when required by loading conditions, the valve has a six to twelve second delay mechanism; thus normal deflection of the rear suspension due to irregular road surfaces does not activate the level controls. The Cadillac Automatic Level Control is included as standard equipment with the Fleetwood Eldorado Convertible, Sixty Special Sedan and Brougham option. Cadillac cruise control Set the Cruise Control dial (illuminated for night) to speed desired, accelerate to that speed, then move switch to AUTO (automatic) position and car will maintain the selected speed without the driver's foot on the accelerator pedal. While brake application immediately releases Cruise Control, it will again maintain driver's pre-selected speed when car is accelerated to the speed setting. A red light reminds driver when Cruise Control is on AUTO position. Moving switch to OFF or turning ignition off disengages automatic operation entirely. Cruise Control also serves as a speed warning indicating by back pressure on the accelerator pedal whenever driver tends to exceed his chosen speed as indicated by the dial setting. 57 controlled differential Because it always directs driving force to the rear wheel having the better traction, Cadillac's Controlled Differential assures maximum mobility on such skid-inducing surfaces as ice, snow, sand, mud, gravel and wet or oily pavement. For the same reason, the Controlled Differential reduces swerving on high crowned roads, provides greater resistance to skidding, adds stability on washboard roads, and contributes to increased tire life. rear window de-fogger (dealer installed only) The Cadillac Rear Window De-Fogger has been designed with a larger, more centrally located rectangular air outlet which distributes fan-blown air across the rear window keeping it free of fog or mist. In winter it helps prevent accumulation of snow or ice on rear window glass. Operates at either of two speed settings. 58 power window regulators Permit raising or lowering windows from four-switch panel just forward of armrest on driver's door. Single switches are provided for passenger operation of individual windows. A switch is provided which may be set to lock out all but driver's window regulators; to permit power operation only when the ignition is ON or, in EMERG (emergency) position to permit power window operation even with ignition OFF. Power Window Regulators are standard except on Calais models. power vent window regulators Available on all models when equipped with power windows. Standard on the Fleetwood Sixty Special and Eldorado. An additional two switches are provided on driver's control panel, a single switch on the opposite door. power deck lid lock The Cadillac Power Deck Lid Lock provides the owner the added convenience of being able to release and slightly raise the deck lid for service or shopping attendants simply by pushing a button at the left side within the glove compartment. A red warning light on the instrument panel indicates when deck lid is unlocked. Available on all but Fleetwood Seventy-Five models. 59 Cadillac signal-seeking pre-selector AM radio The Cadillac AM Radio has superb tone, wide range of adjustment for base or treble, and permits sound to be directed to front and rear speaker or balanced between the two. It is transistorized for instant operation and has a printed circuit for maximum dependability. Tuning is permitted manually, by five favorite station push buttons or by a selector bar for automatic tuning of each successive station within range. Selector bar may be set for only strongest stations or, by moving M O R E S T A T I O N S switch to right, will pick up weaker or more distant stations. Antenna may be raised to any degree of its full height or fully recessed into fender. Cadillac AM/FM radio The Cadillac A M / F M Radio adds the enjoyment of the more sophisticated F M programs. And F M radio rejects outside electrical interference and generally has fewer commercials. The Cadillac F M Radio also features Automatic Frequency Control thus, even when slightly mistuned manually, the radio tends to lock directly onto the station wanted without interference from adjacent stations. Reception is generally best with F M up to some 20 miles from the transmitting station. Beyond this distance choosing another F M station or switching to AM may be preferred. Bar over radio is marked for AM or F M . 60 rear compartment radio controls (Fleetwood Seventy-Five only) The Cadillac Radio available for the Fleetwood SeventyFive Sedan and Limousine is provided with rear compartment controls which are located on the right-hand rear armrest for operation by rear compartment passengers. This radio has A M reception only. Cadillac seat belts Identified by a distinctive Cadillac Crest on the buckle, Cadillac Seat Belts meet or surpass all national safety standards. Seat belts need only be ordered for the rear compartment since they are already provided as standard equipment in the front. All Cadillac Seat Belts are color harmonized with Cadillac interiors. seat belt retractors Cadillac Seat Belt Retractors are already provided on the door-side seat' belts in the front compartment thus keeping them neatly rolled up away from the door sill when not in use. Seat Belt Retractors especially designed for simple and easy installation are also available for use with rear seat belts. 61 additional Cadillac accessories Rear Compartment Remote-Control Radio (Fleetwood Seventy-Five only) . . . . $ .

For 1965, advances in piston head design, exclusive new exhaust system and new engine mountings, which isolate engine pulsations from the interior of the car, assure Cadillac owners the smoothest, quietest engine performance that skilled engineers utilizing the latest electronic computers have yet devised. 66 Cadillac power train 66a Brief new highlights of t h e s m o o t h e s t power train in m o t o r i n g New idling smoothness and engine isolation. New engine mountings proven by electronic computor data and engineering tests permit normal engine roll at idle without conflicting motions (pitch and yaw) associated with rough idling. New Turbo Hydra-Matic transmission with variable stator offers driver wider selectivity of acceleration; dual Drive range for choice of engine braking and performance desired. New plastic deadener and centering ring gives transmission gears noiseless operation in drive range. New one-piece propeller shaft with two CV (constant velocity) joints is quiet, vibration resistant. New rear axle housing of more unified construction, minimum welds for added strength and rigidity. New rear wheel bearings with both races and bearings pre-stressed for increased durability and long life. New 9.00 x 15 whitewall tires (standard on the Fleetwood Eldorado Convertible and optional at extra cost on other models except the Fleetwood Seventy-Five), have new tread design extending onto shoulders of tires. Added benefits include maximum quietness and smoother cornering, better traction and increased directional stability. 67 details of Cadillac engine features for 1965 new coaxial resonator exhaust system Unlike conventional exhaust systems where the varying lengths of pipe result in many resonances of sound, the new Cadillac exhaust system has the muffler at the exact sonic center of the system. The pipes before and after the muffler are tuned to an identical resonance thus leaving only this single resonance to be controlled to eliminate exhaust "booms." This is accomplished by the new coaxial resonator consisting of two chambers around a center pipe. It is designed so that after exhaust noise from the engine enters the resonator it is bounced back completely out of phase with the incoming sound so that the notes cancel out each other. The result is the quietest, most unobstrusive exhaust system even Cadillac owners have ever enjoyed. new battery The Cadillac battery for 1965 has cell connectors passing through rather than around the cell partitions, thus providing a shorter electrical path with minimum restriction. The result is increased ignition voltage and engine cranking speed for surer cold weather and hot engine starts. Battery has new snap-in mounting provision and improved one-piece sealed top. 68 starting motor, generator, generator regulator Powerful starting motor has gear teeth especially designed for strength, quietness and long life. Improved sealing and enclosure of solenoid lever within housing provide maximum wet weather protection. High output generator with lubricated-for-life bearings has 42 amp. rating (55 on airconditioned cars). Generator regulator has hard gold contact points for maximum dependability and long life. new 7-blade fan With blade spacing and profile determined by electronic computer, the exceptional quietness and cooling efficiency of the Cadillac fan eliminates any need for thermostatic control as previously provided on air-conditioned cars. i I I ' .St 1 • \ r < new cross-flow radiator The new Cadillac crossflow radiator has no top and bottom tank to disturb air flow and create noise. It requires no surge tank, is quieter and has fewer potential leak points. It permits lower hood silhouette and grille design. 69 new oil filter location The Cadillac full-flow oil filter removes impurities and abrasive particles from the oil for maximum engine efficiency and long life. For 1965 the oil filter has been repositioned in the engine compartment at an angle for better servicing accessibility. Improved fuel tank venting Minimizing any possibility of spillage of fuel on the deck sill or bumper during refueling and helping to prevent overflow is an improved venting system for the fuel tank. Hinged license plate holder also provides ready access to fuel filler tube. crankcase ventilation system Cadillac's positive crankcase ventilation system directs unburned air-fuel mixture from the crankcase back to the intake manifold for re-burning. A vent valve regulates the volume of unburned air-fuel mixture to assure proper ratios for smooth performance at various engine speeds and loads. Cars delivered in California have a closed ventilation system with an unvented crankcase breather cap and provision to direct any excessive unburned fuel-air mixture from the crankcase to the air cleaner instead of venting it to the outside air. 70 piston-crankshaft assembly The Cadillac engine has a short, rigid crankshaft for strength and efficiency without excess weight. Pistons are lightweight, have new head contour for increasing turbulence and combustibility of fuel-air mixture. Lightweight moving parts minimize starting inertia, reduce friction. dual fuel filters Cadillac provides the owner dual filter protection, a finewoven, self-cleaning, saranplastic filter in the fuel tank plus a sediment bowl-type filter in the engine compartment. warm-up efficiency Cadillac's automatic choke control enriches the fuel mixture only when needed. As engine warms up, hot gases flow through tube A to choke control B which then reduces richness of fuel mixture. smooth idling Under sustained idling fuel may boil and be forced into the carburetor causing roughness or engine stalling. Cadillac provides a heat sensitive valve which prevents this by directing additional air to the carburetor to maintain proper air-fuel mixture. T r Turbo Hydra-Matic transmission features The introduction of the Cadillac Turbo Hydra-Matic transmission brought to Cadillac owners increasedflexibilityin meeting varying driving conditions and a new alacrity in acceleration, in traffic or on the open highway. For 1965 the Turbo Hydra-Matic transmission provides these benefits in still greater measure and with an even wider selectivity in degree of acceleration desired, in amount of engine braking and in the choice of two Drive ranges, always a popular feature among Cadillac owners. The added selectivity of acceleration has been achieved through the addition of a variable stator to the torque converter unit. When the accelerator is depressed about halfway the pitch of the stator vanes is such as to deliver maximum torque (and acceleration). When lesser torque is called for by less depression of the accelerator pedal the pitch of the stator vanes is reduced. This condition is designed to aid the precise maneuvering required in parking, to prevent creeping in idle, and for acceleration where urgency is not a factor. 72 I I I I drive range—(left-hand position) With the Turbo Hydra-Matic selector in the left-hand D R I V E range position the owner is assured of maximum cruising economy and quietness and slower engine speeds. At the same time, the owner enjoys any degree of acceleration he desires from thefluid-smooththrust of the torque converter to the surging acceleration provided by depressing the accelerator pedal halfway to change the stator vane pitch, or, all the way for additional acceleration by engaging a lower gear. 1 I 1 I I I i i drive range—(right-hand position) Placing the Turbo Hydra-Matic selector in the right-hand D R I V E position locks out high gear and utilizes the intermediate gear for maximum responsiveness and increased engine braking. It is often the preferred position for driving in hilly terrain where instant maneuverability without repeated need for brake application is desirable. It is especially effective in mountain driving to hold the car on downgrades and to provide the power and agility to climb the steepest hills. 73 i i i i i t i Cadillac drive line The final phase of the Cadillac Power Train is the drive line, those components which carry the power and torque of the engine and transmission to the rear axle and thus to the rear wheels. For 1965 there is a new, one-piece propeller shaft which transmits power from the transmission to the rear axle with utmost quietness and resistance to vibration. It contributes to the lower tunnel height in conjunction with the forward placement of the engine and transmission. An exclusive feature is the use of CV (constant velocity) joints at each end of the prop shaft. CV joints cancel out forces that tend to set up vibrations or noise thus assuring a smoother, quieter drive line. Precise alignment of the propeller shaft and rear axle pinion through machine mounting attachments contributes to smoother, quieter performance and minimum vibration. The rear axle pinion seal is a. two-lip design. The outer lip sealing out dirt, the inner lip sealing in lubricant, thus increasing durability and long life. Rear axle bearings for 1965 are pre-stressed for long lasting smoothness and dependability. 74 new rear axle housing New rear axle housing for 1965 has a considerable reduction in number of pieces and reduced number and length of welds. The result is a much stronger and more rigid housing construction. CV (constant velocity) joints Each CV (constant velocity) joint used exclusively at both ends of the 1965 propeller shaft is in effect a unit of two TJ-joints, each serving to cancel out any vibration setting tendencies of the other for increased quietness and smoothness. i new tire tread and traction Cadillac's new (optional at extra cost) whitewall tires for 1965 are wider in cross section but with a shorter diameter from road to wheel thus contributing to the lower height of the car. Adequate height for flexing of the sidewalls is maintained by a lower flange height on the wheel rim. In addition, tires have a new tread design extending around onto the shoulders for smoother transition in cornering. Tread pattern provides improved wet road traction. Among the benefits of the new tires are better directional feel and high speed durability, improved cornering and excellent quality of ride. 75 1965 Cadillac chassis The new Cadillac chassis offers many important benefits certain to be enjoyed by 1965 Cadillac owners. For example, the forward mounting of the engine and transmission, which enabled a reduction in tunnel size and increased front passenger compartment space, was made possible by the new frame design. Engineering advancements to the front and rear suspension assure even greater riding comfort andreadability.Steering improvements mean better handling and stability. Even Cadillac's exclusive triple braking system has been further refined for 1965. 76 new Cadillac frame 1. The new Cadillac perimeter frame is fully boxed throughout its length for torsional rigidity and resistance to impact. 2. Hidden bulkheads contribute additional resistance to torsional stress . . . add to strength and rigidity. 3. New and unique pheasant-tail design of rear engine support crossmember permits engine support without infringing on front compartment driver and passenger floor space (as a straight crossmember would). 4. Increased width of new frame permits moving front suspension strut rods further outboard for better control of fore and aft movement of front wheels. 5. Design of frame with box-section side rails instead of central structure permits lower tunnel height in car interior. 6. New frame-to-body structure permits lowering step-in height by approximately one inch. 78 New larger suspension system bushings for greater quietness, improved cushioning and isolation of road noise or vibration. New improved Turbo Hydro-Matic for increased performance, wider selectivity of acceleration, improved engine broking. New plastic centering ring and deadener in transmission for maximum quietness especially in Drive range. Improved steering linkage and _sealing for smoother response and handling ease, greater dependability and long life. New front suspension strut rods mounted further outboard on frame crossmember for added stability and steering control. New, longer pedal arm on emergency broke and improved mechanism for ease of application, added reliability. New location of coil springs on rear axle housing instead of lower control arms permits control arm bushings to better isolate rood noise and cushion wheel impacts. CV (constant velocity) joints at each end of prop shaft assure maximum smoothness, quietness and durability. Exclusive Cadillac shock absorbers maintain consistent quality of ride under most severe road conditions. New one-piece propeller shaft for quiet, vibration-resistant performance and lower floor tunnel height. New rear suspension minimizes deflection of rear of car on fast acceleration for increased comfort, level ride. New pre-stressed rear axle bearings and races for greater dependability. New whitewall tire and tread design for maximum quietness, im-. proved traction, better cornering and high speed stability. New more unified construction of rear axle housing for increased strength and rigidity. New engine mountings precisely tuned to frame characteristics for. maximum idling smoothness, quietness and stability. New box-section perimeter frame with hidden bulkheads for torsional rigidity and strength. Exclusive Cadillac Triple-Braking System provides independent front and rear systems plus true auxiliary or emergency braking. New perimeter frame design perm i t s forward mounting of engine for lower tunnel height, increased passenger space. 78-A new front suspension Improved stability and better control of fore and aft movement of the front wheels have been provided for 1965 by moving the front suspension strut rods further outward on the front frame crossmember. The strut rods, mounted to the frame through thick rubber bushings, hold the wheels in firm fore and aft alignment during normal driving yet permit a momentary rearward deflection of the wheel when it encounters a bump or depression in the road surface thus cushioning the impact. All other front suspension members are also mounted to the frame with rubber bushings designed to absorb or isolate road noise or shock. Rubber limit bumpers permit maximum vertical wheel travel . . . cushion the impact should "bottoming" ever occur. COMPRESSION REBOUND shock absorbers Cadillac Shock Absorbers eliminate any mixing of air with shock absorber fluid by using a gasfilled nylon envelope to replace the air space in conventional shock absorbers. Fluid itself is impervious to temperature changes, retains efficiency in any weather. 80 new rear suspension Cadillac Four-Link rear suspension for 1965 has the coil springs moved from the lower control arms to the rear axle housing. This removes the spring load on suspension bushings so they can more effectively do their job of isolating road noise. The lower control arms hold the axle in firm fore and aft alignment. New upper control arms offer increased resistance to sideways motion of the car. Mounted at one end on each side of the center of the rear axle housing, their opposite ends are mounted much further outward on the frame for 1965, thus providing added stability through a more widespread stance. The deflection of the rear of the car toward the road under fast acceleration has been reduced approximately two-thirds for 1965, a factor not only in added comfort but in making it possible to reduce the height of the rearfloortunnel. Oversize rubber bushings at upper and lower control arm mountings and thick insulators at top and bottom of springs absorb and isolate road noise. 81 Cadillac power steering Only the lightest touch is required on the steering wheel, even in parking, with Cadillac Power Steering. And, of course, it continues to offer that important feel of the road essential in judging safe speeds around curves or on slippery roads. A rubber coupling in the steering shaft minimizes transmission of vibration or road shocks. Steering pump has simple turn cap to facilitate checking of the fluid level. Modifications to the steering linkage increase steering response and improve handling for 1965, while improved seals on linkage joints further assure the smooth, reliable performance of these parts. additional steering advantages Other factors which contribute to Cadillac's superior handling ease for 1965 are the wider front and rear tread, new tire tread design and new front and rear suspension features. While discussed individually elsewhere, the total effect of these advancements is improved steering response and directional stability, regardless of passenger or luggage compartment loads, quieter cornering and better control on all road surfaces including washboard roads. 82 new tilt and telescope steering wheel (See Optional Equipment Section) The new Tilt and Telescope Steering Wheel permits adjusting the wheel upward or downward on the steering shaft over a 3-inch range. It also may be tilted to any of several positions to assure convenience and comfort for any driver. small turning diameter With all of its new styling, impressive stature and major engineering advancements, Cadillac has retained the 38½° front wheel turning angle which permits a maneuverability in parking or restricted areas no greater than that of many smaller cars. new wider tread Now 62 inches, front and rear, Cadillac's new 1 Yi" wider tread provides improved cornering and increased resistance to roil. Equal tread, front and rear, adds directional stability . . . minimizes swerve or dive effect when wheels run onto road shoulder or cross expansion joints in pavement. 83 exclusive Cadillac triple braking system A'SriK-f-r.?*'. • 00 (6) ' New depression infloorpan under brake pedal permits lower pedal height for faster more convenient pivoting of foot from accelerator to brake without reducing available brake pedal travel. Lower pedal also adds new convenience for left-foot brake application. © Cadillac's independent front and rear braking system The system has a separatefluidreservoir, master cylinder piston and hydraulic lines for the front and also for the rear brakes, thus assuring that one set works should the other become inoperative. © diaphragm seal in each brake reservoir Assures further dependability by sealing off the fluid from any contaminants such as water or dirt which might enter through the breather hole on reservoir cover. © exclusive emergency and parking brake Serves as a true auxiliary braking system since a vacuum release prevents it from locking in applied position as long as engine is running and transmission is in any drive gear. Brake is automatically released when engine is started and transmission shifted into gear, thus eliminating this driver responsibility. Longer pedal arm and improved mechanism ease application and increase dependability for 1965. 0 self-adjusting brake shoes Automatically bring linings back to proper clearance with drums when brakes are applied when car is being reversed, thus eliminating manual adjustment under normal conditions for life of lining. © long-life pistons in wheel brake cylinders Made of a super-hard iron alloy instead of aluminum, are self-lubricated and provide extra long life and corrosion resistance. © finned brake drums front and rear Provide increased area for coolingflowof air thus dissipating heat faster. Any possibility of brake fading or loss due to expansion of overheated drums is minimized. © front brake splash protection It is provided by a specially designedflangeon the front brake backing plates which shields interior of drums from splashing water. 1965 Cadillac body The sleek styling and glamorous beauty of the Cadillac body is matched by construction features whose one basic purpose is to assure the Cadillac owner and his passengers maximum safety, comfort and convenience. At the same time, these features are a contributing factor to that enduring worth which assures the original and each subsequent owner maximum protection for his motor car investment. The Fleetwood Plant of the Fisher Body Division is devoted exclusively to the manufacture of all Cadillac bodies under rigid Cadillac quality control standards. 86 new ease of entry and exit... roomier interiors new lower door sills The combination of low silhouette tires and new frame and body sill construction has resulted in lower door step-in height. Sills are also narrow thus minimizing hazards to formal gowns in wet or snowy weather. wide opening, front hinged doors Cadillac doors are hinged at the front and thus cannot be swept open by wind if accidentally opened with car moving. They open wide for unrestricted ease in entering or leaving the car. new curved glass windows The use of curved glass for door windows permits maximum interior width at the shoulder level. At the same time, its curved design requires less overhang of roof sides thus adding to convenience of entry and exit for 1965. unrestricted entranceways Absence of any windshield dogleg, slim steering wheel (which tilts up out of the way with the Tilt and Telescope feature, an extra-cost option) and rounded seat cushion corners all contribute to easier access to Cadillac's roomy interiors. 88 so CO new convertible top boot The open air motoring enthusiasts among Cadillac owners will find for 1965 a new convenience and new beauty in the top boot. It is made of a new stretchable plasticcoated fabric to assure a neat tailored appearance, and of even greater advantage, it has a new self-adhesive edging replacing the previous sliding channel,mounting. Thus putting on or removing the top boot is faster and more convenient. new double hood latch Particularly pleasing to many Cadillac owners is the wide expanse of hood reaching from centerline to centerline of the front fenders. It is an even wider hood for 1965, and through the introduction of dual hood locks it becomes an actual functional part of the front end structure. A single fingertip release latch is located just to the right of the hood ornamentation and just above the grille. 89 large luggage compartment capacity The Cadillac luggage compartment has always provided a large capacity to accommodate all of the luggage normally carried on a trip with ample room for golf clubs, as well. For 1965, the spare tire is mounted in a sloping position on the shelf or kick-up (on all but convertible and Fleetwood Seventy-Five models) thus providing ample and more accessible luggage space. Luggage compartment is lined with tweed-textured, vinyl-coated fabric and has a rubber seal entirely around the deck lid opening for weather protection. covered, non-protruding hinges The use of deck lid hinges which disappear into housings or receptacles contributes to the finished appearance of the luggage compartment and protects fine luggage. spare tire cover Standard on the Fleetwood Sixty Special and Eldorado models and an extra-cost option on all others, the spare tire cover matches the luggage compartment lining. It not only protects luggage from soil and scuff marks, but serves to keep the whitewall area of the spare tire spotlessly clean. 90 For 1965 Cadillac windshield washer-wipers provide new convenience and efficiency. The centerline of the operating arms have been moved outward thus providing an increased wiping area in front of the driver as well as the front compartment passenger. In addition, the three-speed operating switch and washer-wiper button are illuminated for added convenience in nighttime driving. new door safety features Cadillac's concern for the driver and his passengers is further emphasized for 1965 by new door locks. They are designed so that the locking bolt helps to retain the doors more tightly and securely and thus to prevent them from opening under impact. In addition, the new locks are quieter and smoother in operation. 91 improved heater-defroster (a deletion option at reduced cost) new ventilation control accessibility The Cadillac Heater-Defroster is provided as standard equipment but may be deleted at the owner's option at reduced cost. It provides a wide range of temperatures, quickly varied to meet the temperature desired by the driver through blending of heated and unheated air. For 1965, new, larger ducts are provided for the direction of air to the rear compartment thus adding to rear compartment passenger comfort. Upper lever of controls may be set at HEAT for warming car interior, or to DE-FOG or DE-ICE to direct air to the windshield as such conditions may require. Temperature of the air at any of these settings is determined by positioning the lower lever. Fan switch provides three blower speeds. Heater controls are newly located to the right of the steering column. Ventilation controls are centrally located for equal convenience of operation by the driver and front passenger. 92 scientific soundproofing The quietness of Cadillac interiors, a matter of pride and pleasure for Cadillac owners, is achieved through scientifically selected soundproofing. There is a sandwich-type sound barrier between engine and passenger compartments and sound deadening material at designated areas to absorb noise of tire-thrown gravel. Cadillac provides a highly efficient rubber compound sound barrier at each side of the cowl just forward of the car doors. This same barrier between two layers of jute just beneath the front compartment carpeting extends to the carpet-covered areas of the front compartment door sills. Rear compartments have two layers of jute topped by deep carpeting and, between the steel top and headlining of Calais, De Ville and Fleetwood Sixty Special models, there are layers of felt deadener and tufiex insulation. On the underside of the hood is a sound and heat-absorbing, vinyl-coveredfiberglasspad 13^" thick. floor insulation Protecting the front compartment against heat, cold, noise and drafts is a four-layer barrier of selected materials. 1.

CADILLAC MOTOR CAR DIVISION GENERAL MOTORS CORPORATION 121 OPTIONS A N D THE C U S T O M E R To attract more customers, Cadillac provides a wide choice of options suited to individual needs and preferences. For 1965, this constant goal finds expression in a greater than ever variety ranging from eleven body styles, plus a Fleetwood Brougham Option, to a choice of relocating the front seat for added leg room. Facts concerning both standard and special options are catalogued in three sections separated by captioned dividers. In addition, a general index facilitates finding answers to specific items. Some important aspects of Cadillac optional specifications include: Colors. There are 21 options including 5 Eldorado colors which may be ordered on other models at extra charge. Two-tone color combinations are not available. However, a two-tone effect may be obtained by ordering one of four padded vinyl roof color options. Upholstery. 150 interior options are offered (26 more than last year). Regular production leather is now available in the Sedan de Ville, style L. Four carpet and top of instrument panel colors are optional with white leather. Accessories. Included among the 21 items of accessories and equipment available for factory installation are two new and exclusive options — an Automatic Level Control and a Tilt and Telescope Steering Wheel. Significant improvements have also been made in the new Cruise Control and the Power Door Locks. These are described in the Accessories section. Opposite the Accessory and Equipment Options chart is a summary of the five group prices as they apply to either regular or Bucket Seats by body style. Prices. The Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Prices for all options — both standard and special—are included in the original printing of this manual.

A two-tone effect may be obtained by ordering a padded roof combination. FELT PADDED COLOR CODES-CAUTION A cross-grained vinyl fabric is tailored to the roof over an insulation of felt padding. It is not applied directly to the metal. The code numbers' second digit corresponds to the Convertible top color codes. Two of the padded roof codes, therefore, differ from last year (Black and Sandalwood). EXAMPLE 6 PADDED ROOFS COLORS Exclusive Shades. 19 of Cadillac's 21 op- Time. Allow 5 to 6 weeks for shipment. The procurement of special colors requires extra time for mixing by a qualified chemist, who must take time out from regular duties, to formulate the single special color order. This explanation is offered to provide a better understanding of the time and cost factors involved in handling one-of-a-kind individual orders. tions are exclusive and not shared with other G.M. cars. Of the 15 new colors for 1965, Cape Ivory and Samoan Bronze are in entirely new color families. Two-Tone Not Available. The new body design of the 1965 cars does not permit a separation of color between the upper structure and lower panels. However, a two-tone effect may be obtained by ordering a padded roof option in a contrasting color. NOTE: Two-tone colors may still be ordered on the Fleetwood Seventy-Five at no extra charge. ( Harmonious Interior. Whenever a special color is contemplated, careful consideration should be given to the availability of a harmonious upholstery. Eldorado Colors. Five Firemist colors are offered on the Fleetwood Eldorado Convertible. In addition to these, any of the 16 standard line colors may be ordered. Facilities. High up on a newly added fifth floor, sheet metal for Cadillac cars is painted in the industry's finest facilities. Quality control is maintained by an atmosphere in which filtered air is hospital clean to eliminate any dust particles that could be absorbed into painted surfaces. On other styles, the Ave Eldorado colors are available at extra charge. See specimen for ordering on next page. EXTRA CHARGE $134.40 Greater durability and corrosion resistance is achieved from advanced methods and equipment: dipping the primer coat assures complete and uniform coverage; infra-red heated ovens bake the prepared surface with controlled precision; a continuous waterfall on both sides of down-draft spray booths creates extra cleanliness; regulated humidity prevents defects that could result from uncontrolled moisture. Special Colors. Any desired past model or special shade can be supplied on a special order basis. EXTRA CHARGE $134.40 Above price does not include extra-high luster colors such as Firemist, "FireFrost", etc. Prices for these furnished upon request. High metallic is not possible on opaque colors such as white, yellow or light beige. Primer dipping, automatic spraying of sealer, overall hand-spraying of surfaces wet sanding by hand and three color coats all contribute to produce Cadillac's incomparable finishes. How To Order. Type 0 in the color space and complete name and lacquer number in center section of the order form. See specimens on the following pages. 8 ( EXTERIOR COLOR CODES TRANSITION Of necessity, ten 1965 color code numbers similar in tone to their previous counterparts have been changed. Attention is called to these revised numbers to prevent misunderstanding. 1965 1964 10 Sable Black 12 Aspen White 16 Starlight Silver 14 Nevada Silver 18 Ascot Gray 16 Cardiff Gray 20 Hampton Blue 22 Beacon Blue 24 Tahoe Blue 26 Ensign Blue 28 Alpine Turquoise 29 Turino Turquoise 30 Cascade Green 32 Seacrest Green 36 Inverness Green 40 Cape Ivory 42 Sandalwood 44 Bahama Sand 44 Sierra Gold 46 Sierra Gold 46 Samoan Bronze 48 Matador Red 50 Matador Red 49 Claret Maroon 52 Royal Maroon ELDORADO FIREMIST COLORS 90 Peacock Firemist 92 Sheffield Firemist 96 Jade Firemist 97 Saddle Firemist 98 Crimson Firemist 92 Firemist Blue Two-tone paint color combinations not available. 11 UPHOLSTERY ( New Upholstery Options. Leather options others, although it was the original purchaser's choice. have been added to the Sedan de Ville (style L) plus additional carpet and top of instrument panel colors with white leather. This provides a choice of 150 upholstery options in 11 models and 8 trim styles. Afirmstand should be exercised to channel the upholstery selection according to the recommended options; otherwise, the finished product may present an appearance contrary to the customer's expectations. Four Carpet Colors Optional with White Leather. For better interior-exterior har- mony when white leather is ordered, a choice of four carpet colors is offered on the de Ville Series and Fleetwood Sixty Special. The designated carpet color— Black, Medium Blue, Red or Turquoise— includes the color of the top of instrument panel and rear shelf. Why No Cloth Trim Recommendations For Eldorado Colors? The Peacock and Jade Firemist colors were developed exclusively for the Eldorado. Consequently, only Gray-Blue (code 461) and Blue-Green (code 476) Eldorado leathers are colorkeyed to these exterior shades. Belt Line Color. On all interior combinations except white, the top of instrument panel color extends along the top of the doors, rear quarters and shelf, forming a dark tone belt line from windshield to rear window. Good taste. Taste, which is a developed skill, is frequently confused with untrained personal preference. Most customers respect and adhere to Cadillac color-upholstery recommendations, as they are based upon standards of esthetic principles and experience. They are part of Cadillac's quality standards. With white leather upholstery the upper part of the doors and rear quarters remain white. Only the top of instrument panel, "eyebrow" pad at forward part of front door and rear shelf are in dark tone. Combination Not on Chart. If the color upholstery selection is not listed on chart (page 17) please mention on the order that it is definitely wanted. Otherwise, it may be construed as a typographical error. An adherence to this suggestion will avoid delays in ascertaining accuracy of order. Failure to verify the specifications may result in the production of a discordant color scheme. Order Interior From Chart on Page 17. Interior colors are selected and toned to harmonize with their counterpart exterior colors. Therefore, thefirstupholstery recommendation on color-trim chart is designed to result in a co-ordinated interior and exterior. Three-Digit Code Numbers. New three- The upholstery selection involves the complete interior decor of the car and if not harmonized with the exterior color, becomes uncomplimentary to the automobile. digit upholstery identification code numbers have been adopted. For a better understanding of upholstery codes see explanation on page 18. Selections opposing the experienced judgment of trained specialists in color harmony could result in disappointment even to the customer making them. The combination may be regarded as poor taste by Special Upholstery. Whenever a special interior is actually wanted, be sure to type 000 in TRIM space and detail the desired specifications according to suggestions in Special Interiors section of this book. 12 ( ( 1965 CADILLAC UPHOLSTERY OPTIONS OPTIONAL LEATHER— EXTRA CHAftGf Styles J — B ~ L CONVERTIBLES DE VILLE Styt« F ELDORADO Style E LEATHER 351 BlacK 352 White—Black Carpet 351 Black 451 Black 353 White—Blue Carpet 352 353 White—Black Carpet White—Blue Carpet 452 White—Black Carpet 354 White—Red Carpet 355 354 White—Red Carpet 454 White—Red Carpet 381 White—Turquoise Carpet Sandalwood 355 White—Turquoise Car. 388 Red 360 Blue 461 Gray-Blue 370 Green 476 Blue-Green 381 Sandalwood 481 Sandalwood 383 Tan 483 Tan 488 Red 386 Bronze 388 Red FLEETWOOD SERIES-Sfyte M 1 Top»-E White 1 2 Black 2 Black 3 Blue 5 Gray-Blue 6 Sandalwood 4 Green 6 Sandalwood BOLSTERS LEATHER INSERTS CLOTH Bucket Seats: To order add B to code, e.g., 351B, 352B, 451B, 452B, etc. Tops-P Bucket Seats: A v a i l a b l e on de Ville styles J and B.

SERVICE DEPARTMENT CADILLAC MOTOR CAR DIVISION G E N E R A L MOTORS CORPORATION DETROIT, MICHIGAN 48232 1 OPERATING YOUR CADILLAC Your new Cadillac is ready for all normal driving just as you receive it from your dealer. Precision manufacturing techniques have prepared it for the road and a formal break-in period is not required. From the very start, drive a n EeTirS*" Vroad V ™ '. different traffic and situations. SECTION 0 3 m a n n e r a t V a r y i n s « P e e d s ' asVuTred by Keys Two separate keys are provided for your convenience. The key with the octagonal head operates the ignition and door locks. The rounded key is used in the luggage compartment and glove box door locks, and in the center console on models with bucket seats, to protect the contents of these compartments when it is necessary to leave the ignition key with your car. Remove the "knock-out" plug with key number from the key head and keep it, or a record of the number, to facilitate replacement or duplication of your keys. 2 Ignition switch The ignition switch is located in the center of the instrument panel to the left of the radio. The key slot is illuminated when instrument panel lights are on. The key can be turned to any one of three positions, but can be inserted or withdrawn only in the straight-up, " O F F " position. First position "right" completes the ignition circuit and activates all instruments and accessories. Full "right" position cranks the engine. The "left" position is for operation of accessories with ignition off. For your own protection and to cooperate with civil authorities, remove the key and lock the car when leaving it unattended. Instructions for starting the engine The starter operates when the ignition key is turned to the full "right" position, p r o v i d e d the transmission selector lever is in either "Neutral" or "Park". For safety, the starter is inoperative in all driving positions. When the engine is cold, press the accelerator pedal slowly to the toeboard once, then remove your foot, and turn the key to the full "right" position. DO NOT hold the key in full "right" position longer than 15 seconds at one time. If the car has been standing over 48 hours, it is helpful to pump the accelerator three times before starting. Extreme cold weather starting The starting procedure for extreme cold weather is basically the same as for normal conditions. Should the engine start, run a few seconds and then stall, repeat the normal starting procedure. If the engine does not restart within five seconds of cranking, push the accelerator to the floor and hold it (DO NOT PUMP) while continuing to crank until engine starts. Do not crank engine longer than 15 seconds at a time. Proper engine oil viscosity is very important for easy cold weather starting. See page 40. Normal restarting Flooded engine If the engine is warm from previous running (within the last two to four hours), hold the accelerator part way down while cranking. Hold accelerator pedal all the way down and crank until engine starts (not over 15 seconds at a time). 3 I N S T R U M E N T S NOTE: Fuel and temperature gauge needles do not necessarily return to the left when ignition is turned "OFF", but may stop at any point on the gauge. the ignition is turned on, but will go off when the engine is running. If it does not go off, the car should not be operated until the cause of the low oil pressure has been corrected by an Authorized Cadillac Dealer. Generator indicator light Fuel gauge A red indicator light for the charging circuit is located on the left side of the instrument cluster above the temperature gauge. The light, labeled "GEN", glows whenever the generator is not charging. In normal operation, it will light when the ignition is turned on and will go out when the engine starts. If it glows while the engine is running, have your car checked by an Authorized Cadillac Dealer. The fuel gauge is located on the lower right side of the instrument cluster. It registers only when the ignition key is turned to the right. Temperature Indicator The engine temperature gauge is located on the lower left side of the instrument cluster. Normally, the gauge' pointer will move gradually from the extreme left to a center position. Do not be alarmed if the pointer registers above the center range in heavy traffic or on long drives during warm weather. The pressure-controlled overflow will normally prevent coolant losses up to 259°F. If the pointer reaches "H" or if the coolant boils, indicated by a buzzing sound from the radiator cap, stop the car immediately and have the condition causing the overheating corrected. CAUTION: Before removing radiator cap, see page 41. Speedometer The speedometer indicates car speed. The odometer portion which indicates distance traveled, is divided into two Oil pressure indicator light If oil pressure is low, a red indicator light labeled "OIL", located on the right side of the instrument cluster will glow. Under normal conditions this light will glow when 4 gear ratio for road and load conditions. HILLY TERRAIN—use the right-hand "DRIVE" position. In this position, only first and second speeds are available, improving acceleration and deceleration. The right-hand "DRIVE" position also reduces shifting in traffic and on hills, provides more control on slippery pavement, and decreases brake usage when descending medium, grades. It may be selected at any car speed. PROLONGED IDLING IN H E A V Y TRAFFIC—place shift lever in neutral "N" when engine must be idled for long periods in heavy traffic during hot weather. PASSING—for passing at moderate speeds—between 30-45 miles per hour—depressing the accelerator pedal only part way will usually provide sufficient acceleration. This automatically downshifts the transmission to a lower gear for more power. When additional acceleration is needed for safety in passing at higher speeds, press the accelerator all the way down. sections—the left half records accumulated mileage and the right half indicates trip mileage. A reset knob for the trip odometer is located below the instrument cluster to the right of the steering column. To reset trip mileage, push in on the reset knob and turn it clockwise until all nines appear. Repeat this operation until all nines reappear, then reverse the knob until all zeros appear. TRANSMISSION Your 1965 Cadillac is equipped with a Turbo Hydramatic transmission. The transmission shift indicator has six positions marked park "P", reverse "R", neutral "N", drive "DRIVE" (left and right positions), and low "L". An arrangement of steps in the steering column restricts a straight line movement of the shift lever. It is necessary to lift up on the lever when shifting into and out of park "P", when shifting from the left hand "DRIVE" position to the right hand "DRIVE" position, and when shifting from "DRIVE" to low "L". "Ii" Low range -DRIVE" range "L" Low range provides engine braking assist. It should always be used when going up or down very steep grades and where traffic signs call forfirstor second gear. A shift from either "DRIVE" position to low "L" can be made while traveling at moderate speeds. This shift is not recommended when the pavement is slippery or when in loose gravel, as it may induce a skid. In drive range with the indicator in the left hand "DRIVE" position, three forward speeds are available; the right hand "DRIVE" position provides two forward speeds. The left hand "DRIVE" position is used for all normal driving. This permits the transmission to operate through its complete range of gear ratios and select the proper 5 NOTE: Should the wheels slide when braking on ice, the transmission may shift to a lower gear. If this occurs, move the shift lever to neutral " N " until control is recovered. Use of intermittent brake pressure when on ice will result in better car control. start the engine, the car should be towed to an Authorized Cadillac Dealer. Towing "R" reverse To back up your car, first bring it to a complete, stop, then move shift lever to the reverse "R" position. The shift lever can be moved to reverse "R" from neutral " N " or any "DRIVE" position without lifting up on the lever. However, it is necessary to lift up on the lever when shifting to reverse "R" from park "P" position. T " park Place shift lever in the park "P" position to lock rear wheels when parked. When parking on hills or steep inclines, apply parking brake and turn front wheels toward curb. It is necessary to raise the shift lever when moving it from any other position to park "P" and also when moving it from the park "P" position. NEVER move the lever to park "P" with the car in motion. If the transmission, drive line, and rear axle are in proper operating condition, the 1965 Cadillac can be safely towed at speeds up to 45 MPH for distances up to 50 miles. Always tow car with transmission shift lever in "Neutral" position. For higher speeds or longer distances, the propeller shaft must be disconnected or the rear wheels raised off the ground. If towing requires raising the rear of the car, the wheels should be raised just slightly off the ground and the steering wheel should be tied down with front wheels in straight ahead position. CONTROLLED DIFFERENTIAL A Controlled Differential (optional at extra cost) is available on all models. The Controlled Differential makes driving safer and more economical by providing additional traction in snow, ice, mud, sand and gravel, particularly when one rear wheel is on a surface providing poor traction. During normal driving and cornering, the controlled unit functions as a standard differential. When one wheel encounters a slippery surface, however, the Controlled Emergency starting procedure The engine cannot be started by pushing the car. If the trouble appears to be a discharged battery, a booster battery and jumper cables should be used. If this fails to 6 countered, immediate inspection should be made by your Authorized Cadillac Dealer. The power brake unit has a self-contained reserve tank that permits several applications of the brakes with power assist after the engine has stopped. After this reserve is used up, or should the power system become inoperative, the brakes can be applied in the conventional manner; however, more effort is required due to the loss of power assist. The width of the brake pedal will allow comfortable use of two-foot application. In the event of power assist being lost, the use of both feet on the pedal will result in a normal braking feel. Under normal driving conditions your Cadillac does not require manual brake adjustments to compensate for lining wear. All wheels are equipped with automatic brake adjusters. The brakes are automatically adjusted, if adjustment is required, each time they are applied when the car is moving rearward. To assure best operation of the brake system, have brakes inspected periodically by your Authorized Cadillac Dealer. Differential allows the wheel with the greater traction to drive the car. CAUTION: On cars equipped with a Controlled Differential, do not jack one rear wheel off the ground with engine running. P O W B R A E K R E S Your 1965 Cadillac is equipped with power brakes incorporating a dual reservoir master cylinder. With this type cylinder, the front and rear brakes have separate hydraulic systems. The rear brakes are not affected in the event of fluid leaks from the front hydraulic system. Likewise, the front brakes are not affected by loss of fluid from the rear hydraulic system. Loss of fluid is signaled by excessive brake pedal travel. If this condition is en- Parking brake To apply the parking brake, step on the parking brake pedal suspended from the underside of the instrument panel to the left of the power brake pedal. It will lock 7 into place automatically when the transmission is in "Park" or "Neutral" with engine running, or in any position with engine not running. The parking brake will release automatically when the transmission selector lever is moved to any drive range with the engine running. A definite noise should be heard when the pedal releases. Do not drive the car unless the parking brake is completely released. Should it be necessary to release the brake manually, pull on the hand release lever located on the upper right side of the parking brake assembly. Since the parking brake will not lock into place when the transmission selector is in "Drive", "Low" or "Reverse" ranges with the engine running, it may be used as a fully controllable brake pedal, providing rear wheel braking only, under emergency or special conditions. As a safety precaution when parking on hills, it is advisable to turn the wheels toward the curb, lock the rear wheels by placing the transmission selector in "Park" position, and place the parking brake in its fully depressed position. When pedal travel of the parking brake exceeds five inches, it should be adjusted by your Authorized Cadillac Dealer. POWER STEERING Steering, turning, and parking are made almost effortless with Cadillac power steering. Your car provides easy and responsive steering, with power assist available as required by road conditions. Your Cadillac may be steered manually with no power assist when the engine is not running. If your power steering becomes inoperative for any reason, the car may be steered manually, but with increased effort. CONTROLS Your new Cadillac has accessible controls and easy to read dials and instruments that are designed for your safety and convenience. Only a few minutes are required to gain an understanding of the proper use of these in- 8 struments and controls. Refer to the illustration on page 10 (or page 30) to become acquainted with your 1965 Cadillac instrument panel. Windshield wipers and washers The three-speed windshield wipers are controlled by a lever located on the instrument panel to the left of the steering column. To operate the wipers, move the lever to thefirsttriangular mark "LOW", the second triangular mark "MEDIUM", or "HIGH" position. Do not try to move the blades by hand or attempt to run the wipers if the blades are frozen to the glass. Avoid operating the wipers on a dry windshield. Windshield washers are provided for cleaning a windshield soiled with dust, road spray or dirt, Pressing the washer button, located to the left of the wiper control lever, actuates the wipers to operate at low speed and •^vi/n*.,r* tisprays solution on the windshield. When washing action is completed and the windshield is dry, move the wiper l e v e r to the "OFF" position. Headlight control The control knob for the headlights, parking lights, instrument panel lights, and courtesy lights is located in the instrument cluster to the left of the speedometer. H E A D L I G H T S are operated by pulling the switch control knob all the way out. P A R K I N G LIGHTS come on as the same knob is pulled halfway out. INSTRUMENT PANEL LIGHTS are on in both positions. Instrument panel lights can be increased or decreased in intensity, or turned off, by rotating the control knob. Rotating it completely counterclockwise turns on courtesy lights. Headlight dimmer switch The headlight dimmer switch permits you to select the correct headlight beam for different types of driving. All four lights are on when you use the high beam for highway driving . . . only the upper lights (outer lights on Seventy-Five's) are on for low beam city driving. Select desired beam by depressing the switch located on the floor just below the parking brake pedal. 9 High beam Indicator When the headlights are on high beam, an indicator light above the 60 MPH mark in the instrument cluster glows red. Never leave the high beam on when approaching oncoming traffic. Courtesy lights Your Cadillac is equipped with courtesy lights that illuminate the interior of the car when any door is opened. When all doors are closed, full counterclockwise position of the headlight control knob turns on courtesy lights. A manual switch is centrally located on the back of the front seat divider on some sedan styles, and on the rear quarter trim panel above the left armrest on some coupe styles, for control of rear courtesy lights. On convertible styles, the manual switch is integral with the courtesy light on the front of the left rear armrest. more than a 20-second adjustment is desired, you can reset it after 12 hours have elapsed and thereby adjust it to run an additional 20 seconds faster or slower. To assure accurate timekeeping, your clock should be removed for cleaning and oiling every two years by your Cadillac Dealer, who will be pleased to send it to an authorized clock repair station for necessary maintenance at reasonable cost. A s h receivers and lighters There is an illuminated dual ash receiver and a lighter located in the center of the instrument panel for the convenience of both passenger and driver. The ash receiver door can be opened by pushing on the cover tab and can be closed by pulling rearward on the cover tab. Rear combination ash receivers and lighters are provided on all models except the Calais Coupe, which is equipped with ash receivers only. Electric clock A fully automatic electric clock is located in the instrument cluster to the right of the speedometer. To reset, pull out the reset knob firmly and rotate in the direction you want to move the minute hand, until the hands register the correct time. Resetting the clock 5 or more minutes in either direction will automatically regulate the clock to run approximately 20 seconds faster or slower per day, depending on which way the reset knob is rotated. If Back-up lights For safety and convenience, your Cadillac is equipped with dual back-up lights that go on automatically when the transmission selector lever is in the "Reverse" position with the ignition switch on. 11 Turn signal The turn signal lever is mounted on the left side of the steering column, The turn signal lever should be moved to the "up" position to signal for a right turn and to the "down" position for a left turn. This activates flashing signals on the right or left, both front and rear of the car, to inform oncoming and following drivers of the direction you intend to turn. Corresponding right and left signal indicator lights are located facing rearward on top of each front fender crown molding. A steady beam from either indicator light means failure of a front or rear signal bulb. For safety, and to comply with the law, have burned out bulbs replaced at once. Cornering lights Your Cadillac is equipped with cornering lights that operate in conjunction with the turn signals. When the turn signal is operating in either direction with headlights or parking lights on, the corresponding cornering light emits a steady sideward beam to provide additional illumination when turning corners. 12 MIRRORS Glare-proof inside rear-view mirror The Cadillac glare-proof inside rear-view mirror is moved from clear daylight visibility to non-glare visibility at night by rotating the small tab at the bottom of the mirror. The mirror can be moved to accommodate the driver's height and seat position by moving the pivoted ball stud up or down. Fleetwood inside rear-view mirror The Fleetwood Sixty Special and Eldorado Convertible 3-Way inside rear-view mirror has an adjustment for three differing types of driving. For daylight driving the lever at the bottom of the mirror should be in the left hand position. For normal night driving the lever should be positioned at the center of the bottom of the mirror. Move the lever to the right to counteract intense glare. Remote-control outside mirror Your Cadillac is equipped with a remote-control outside rear-view mirror. Movement of the handle, inside the car, allows you to adjust the mirror to suit your requirements. Additional rotational adjustment is possible by rotating the mirror head in its support. 13 VENTILATION" A N D HEATING Heating The Cadillac Heating System delivers heated air through a unit located on the right-hand side of the cowl. Outside air is delivered through the heating system to the front passenger compartment by means of grilles and openings in front of the dash panel. Heated air is delivered to the rear passenger compartment through ducts that extend under the front seat. Part or ail of the heated air can be delivered to the windshield for removing fog or ice. Ventilation On cars not equipped with Comfort Control, outside air is drawn into the passenger compartment through the grille located in the cowl directly below, and in front of, the windshield. This location, minimizes intake of exhaust fumes from other cars. Ventilation controls are located in a panel above the glove box. Moving the control levers individually, right or left, away from the " O F F " position, opens air doors and admits ventilating air. The levers can be moved gradually to admit as much air as you desire. Heater control operation The heater controls are located in the instrument panel to the right of the steering column (left, on Fleetwood Seventy-Five). The controls consist of a switch to control fan speed and two horizontal sliding levers to control the defroster and heater. The controls are illuminated when instrument panel lights are on. The system can be operated with the fan switch "OFF", or with the fan running at any one of three speeds. The lower lever controls the temperature. To increase the temperature, move the lever to the right; to decrease the temperature, move it to the left. The upper lever turns the heater on and off, and controls the quantity of defrosting air delivered to the windshield. Moving the upper lever to " H E A T " turns the heater on. If 14 air is desired on the windshield, move the lever to the "DE-FOG" position, and move the lower lever to the desired temperature position. For removing ice, move both levers to the extreme right, "DE-ICE" position, and move the fan switch to "HIGH". Heater control during warm-up For maximum heat and quickest warm-up in cold weather, place the upper lever at "HEAT", move the lower lever ail the way to the right, and set the fan switch on "HIGH". If it is necessary to remove some fog during this period, move upper lever to "DE-FOG" to direct air to the windshield. Any snow covering the cowl air intake grille should be removed to facilitate defogging. It will be most comfortable in extremely cold weather to place the upper lever in the "DE-FOG" position. 15 C O M F O R T CONTROL AIR CONDITIONER S E C T I O 1ST The Cadillac Comfort Control Air Conditioner system (optional at extra cost) automatically controls the Air Conditioner-Heater system to provide the interior temperature selected by the driver on the control panel temperature dial. Comfort Control is a completely automatic system that requires no change of setting due to outside weather conditions. In warm weather, cooled, dehumidified air is discharged from three adjustable outletsone at each end and one in the center of the instrument panel. In cool weather, warm air (as high as 90°F.) may be emitted from the three outlets. Each outlet can be rotated to direct air throughout the car. The end outlets can be closed off by turning the knob beneath each outlet. The center outlet can be closed off by rotating the thumb wheel. In cold weather, heated air enters the passenger compartment through the heat distributor to the front and rear floor areas. 16 CONTROLS The control panel for "Comfort Control" is located just below the instrument cluster to the right of the steering column. Normal operation 1. Set the temperature dial on the control panel to the interior temperature desired. 2. The horizontal sliding lever should be positioned at the white triangle above the word "AUTOMATIC". This turns the system on and provides 100% outside air at all times. NOTE: After initial settings are made, it is not necessary to turn the system "OFF". The air conditioner-heater system will operate automatically whenever the car is started; it will start almost immediately in warm weather, but heater operation in cold weather will be delayed until heat is available from the engine coolant. "AUTOMATIC" causes the system to operate similar to the white triangle setting but at maximum blower speed, resulting in quicker cool-down in summer and warm-up in winter, and allows the air conditioner to operate on 80% recirculated air for maximum cooling efficiency. NOTE: To achieve quicker cool-down when the car has been parked in the hot sun, it is recommended that the end outlets be positioned so they face outboard and upward on a 45° angle and the center outlet be positioned upward on a 20° angle. Also the rear windows should be lowered approximately two inches for a few minutes to exhaust the hot air. The first "DEFROST" position should be used when the windshield is fogged over. This will direct a portion of the discharge air to the windshield and cause the blower to operate at a medium speed. The second "DEFROST" position provides maximum Unusual operation Three additional settings of the control lever are provided for use in those few instances when extreme weather conditions call for extra volumes of heated or cooled air or for air to be directed to the windshield. The setting marked by a red triangle above the word 17 heated air at H I G H blower speed, all of which is delivered to the windshield for melting snow and ice. REAR WINDOW DE-FOGGER T h e Cadillac Rear Window De-Fogger (available from your Authorized Cadillac Dealer at extra cost) aids in keeping the rear window clear. T h i s unit is available o n all models except convertibles and Fleetwood Seventy-Five Sedans and Limousines. It is controlled by a switch on the lower side of the instrument panel to the left of the steering c o l u m n . F o r " H I G H " fan speed, move switch to the right. F o r " L O W " speed, move it to the left. T h e De-Fogger is " O F F " when the switch is in center position. In operation, the De-Fogger directs air against the rear window from an outlet in the rear compartment package shelf, thus keeping the rear window free of mist and fog. TILT—6 POSITIONS T E L E S C O P E - 3 IN. can be changed to minimize tension and fatigue. T h e adjustments are simple, and independent of each other. T h e tilt mechanism is operated by lifting up the small lever on the left side of the steering column, just below the turn signal lever, moving the steering wheel to one of six angles, and releasing the lever. Telescoping of the wheel distance is obtained by rotating the locking ring in the center of the steering wheel counterclockwise, to unlock the mechanism, sliding the wheel into the desired position and turning the locking ring clockwise to make the adjustment secure. Both the tilt and telescoping mechanisms can be changed while driving. TILT A N D TELESCOPING STEERING WHEEL T h e Tilt and Telescoping steering wheel (optional on some models at extra cost) can be tilted to any one of six different positions, and can be adjusted in and out within a 3-inch range to the most comfortable distance between you and the wheel. T h i s permits individual selection of the most natural and comfortable position for all driving conditions. Also, on long trips, the steering wheel position 18 These features also permit maximum ease in entering and leaving the car. The wheel is spring-loaded, so that lifting the tilt lever automatically raises the wheel to its uppermost position. Additional clearance can be obtained by unlocking the ring and moving the wheel all the way into the column. The Tilt and Telescoping steering wheel can be adjusted in conjunction with the seat to provide the maximum in driving comfort. CRUISE CONTROL Cadillac Cruise Control (optional at extra cost) is a speed reminder and automatic speed regulating device, controlled by a speed setting dial and a three-position slide switch marked "OFF", "ON", and "AUTO". In the "OFF" position, the unit has no effect on driving. To use as a SPEED REMINDER, rotate the dial until desired speed setting, as indicated by the numerals on the dial rim, is lined up with the center of the slide switch. Then move slide switch forward to the " O N " position. Your Cruise Control indicates that the selected speed has been reached when back pressure is felt on the accelerator pedal. Cruise Control does not interfere with normal accelerator pedal movement up to the selected speed reminder setting. To obtain further acceleration above that speed, press the accelerator pedal against the warning back pressure. For A U T O M A T I C SPEED CONTROL, move slide switch forward momentarily to the " A U T O " position; this will cause the red indicator light on top of the control panel to glow, indicating the Cruise Control is ready for automatic operation. Then rotate dial to desired speed setting. Accelerate until the selected speed is reached and back pressure is felt on the accelerator pedal. The car will now automatically maintain the selected speed with the driver's foot off the accelerator pedal. Selected speed will be maintained, within the limits of engine performance, even when driving uphill or down. When the unit is in automatic control, car speed can be changed by slowly rotating the dial forward to increase speed, or backward to decrease speed. CAUTION: When changing speed during automatic control, the dial acts as a hand throttle. Always rotate dial slowly to prevent sudden acceleration. In automatic control, car speed can be increased also by pressing the accelerator pedal against the warning back pressure. 19 Automatic control is disengaged when the brake pedal is depressed. To re-engage, accelerate until back pressure is again felt. The unit will again engage automatically. It is not necessary to move the slide switch to the " A U T O " position to re-engage automatic control. The " O F F " position is provided so the slide switch may be moved rearward to disengage automatic control completely without the necessity of depressing the brake pedal. The unit is also completely disengaged whenever the ignition switch is turned off. With the unit "OFF", no back presure will be felt at any speed and the indicator light will not glow. When automatic control is disengaged in this manner, it is necessary to move the slide switch forward momentarily to the " A U T O " position to re-engage automatic control. GUIDE-MATIC POWER HEADLIGHT C O N T R O L The Guide-Matic Power Headlight Control (optional at extra cost) automatically switches your car's headlights from high to low beam when another vehicle approaches from the opposite direction and returns them to high beam again when conditions require it. An override switch, integral with the headlight dimmer switch, permits the driver to hold the headlights on high beam. A sensitivity control ring located directly behind the headlight control knob, permits adjusting the sensitivity of the Power Headlight Control to suit driving conditions. This ring is identified by the words " A U T O M A T I C DIMMING" above the ring. Centering the control ring pointer between " O F F " and "FAR" provides normal sensitivity. Rotating the control ring clockwise toward the word "FAR" causes the lights to dim sooner; rotating it counterclockwise delays the dimming action. For manual operation of headlight dimming, rotate the Guide-Matic control ring counterclockwise to the " O F F " position. NOTE: On Fleetwood Seventy-Five cars, the sensitivity control is a knob located on the rear of the phototube unit, which is mounted on the top center of the instrument panel. TWILIGHT SENTINEL Cadillac Twilight Sentinel (optional at extra cost) automatically turns on your car's headlights, instrument panel lights and tail lights as darkness approaches, when the 20 For manual operation of the headlights, rotate the control lever counterclockwise to the "OFF" position. This permits conventional operation of lights with the headlight control knob. ignition switch is "ON". The unit also turns the lights off as daylight approaches. The Twilight Sentinel control lever is located behind the headlight control knob escutcheon (on cars equipped with GuideMatic Power Headlight Control, the control lever is located behind the sen-. sitivity control ring.) For automatic operation, rotate the control lever clockwise to the "ON" position and push the headlight control knob all the way in. Your car's lights will automatically turn " O N " as darkness approaches and " O F F " as daylight approaches. A variable time delay feature permits the headlights, instrument panel lights, and tail lights to remain " O N " after the ignition switch is turned " O F F " for added convenience and safety in darkened areas. Additional side lighting can be obtained by activating a cornering light with the turn signal lever. For TIME D E L A Y ACTION, rotate the control lever clockwise between " O N " and " M A X " to the position that provides the desired time delay. Maximum time delay is approximately 90 seconds. RADIOS The Cadillac A M and AM-FM model radios (optional at extra cost) are both fully transistorized. The radio is located in the center of the instrument panel. Two control knobs are located to the left of the radio dial. Five push buttons are provided below the dial and a selector bar is provided above the dial. The left control knob is the "ON", " O F F " and "VOLU M E " control. The ring around the left knob controls the tone. Turned to the left, bass tones predominate— turned to the right, treble tones are accentuated. Pushing in on the right knob raises the antenna; pull.TONE "ON" "OFF" "VOLUME" 21 MANUAL TUNER ANTENNA "PUSH-PULL" CONTROL SENSITIVITY SPEAKERS SELECTOR BAR PUSH BUTTONS Push buttons on the AM-FM radio may be set on A M stations, F M stations, or a combination of both. The selector bar above the dial is used on the AM-FM radio to select the desired frequency band. Pressing the left end selects the A M band and pressing the right end, the F M band. The letters " A M " or " F M " will light on the dial to show which frequency band the radio is on. The selector bar (more stations) on the A M radio only, permits automatic search tuning. Press the bar and immediately release it to cause the tuner to change and stop at the next station on the dial. A sensitivity control for this automatic tuning is located in the center below the bar. Moving this control to the left allows the tuner to stop only on more powerful stations. In the middle position, stations of slightly lower power will be received in addition to stronger stations. To obtain maximum sensitivity, and bring in weaker stations, move control to the right. The F M receiver is normally free from most atmospheric and man-made static. The effective range of F M transmitters, however, is usually limited to no more than line-of-sight from the transmitter—or about twenty miles. Moving out of this effective range will produce a "flutter" or a series of noise bursts in the signal. Ignition interference from adjacent vehicles may also be encountered. When it is not possible to eliminate these effects by retuning, try switching to a stronger F M station or to the A M band. ing out lowers the antenna. The ring around the right knob controls the operation of the front and rear speakers. Counterclockwise rotation accentuates the rear speaker. Clockwise movement accentuates the front speaker. Balanced sound can be obtained by centralizing the ring. Manual tuning of either set is accomplished by turning the right control knob to set the pointer at the desired frequency on the dial. The five push buttons can be pre-set to favorite stations. Tune in the desired station nearest the left end of the dial with the manual tuner knob. Fine tune until best reception is obtained. Pull the first button on the left straight out, then push the button all the way in. The first button will now select that station repeatedly.

The front compartment cooling unit is located on the right cowl and delivers air into the front passenger compartment. A separate cooling unit is mounted in the trunk compartment. This unit delivers cooled air to rear seat passengers through two outlets mounted in the roof. AIR CONDITIONER CONTROLS The air conditioner control panel for the front compartment is located in the instrument panel to the left of the steering column. A switch on the upper center of the control panel regulates blower speed. There are two horizontal sliding levers. The upper lever controls the air flow for the operation of the air conditioning, heating and defrosting systems. The lower lever controls the air temperature. Moving the upper lever to the "COOL" position turns the system on and provides cooled outside air. For maximum cooling efficiency on hot or humid days, advance the upper lever to the "RECIRC" position. In this position, a small amount of outside air is mixed with the recirculated air. Moving the lower lever to the left reduces air temperature; moving it to the right increases air temperature. REAR COMPARTMENT RADIO CONTROLS A rear seat radio remote control is optional at extra cost on cars equipped with a signal seeking selector radio. It is mounted in the right rear armrest and consists of an on-off volume control, a sensitivity control and a station selector button. 33 With the rear seat radio switch on, only the rear controls operate the radio. The radio cannot be operated normally from the front seat again until the rear control is turned off. The on-off volume control knob turns, the radio on and off and regulates the volume. When the rear seat radio remote control is on, the station selector button glows red. The sensitivity control is below the on-off knob. Rotating it counterclockwise will permit the tuner to stop only on the more powerful stations. In the middle position, stations of slightly lower power will also be received. For maximum sensitivity, rotate the control clockwise to bring in the weaker stations. To select stations, momentarily depress the station selector button located between the rear door window control switches. ELECTRIC CLOCKS Two electric clocks are provided, one on the right side of the 34 instrument cluster, the other in the center of the front seat back. The rear clock may be manually regulated by turning the small regulator screw clockwise to make the clock run faster and counterclockwise to make it run slower. For explanation of the front clock resetting procedure, refer to item on "Electric Clocks" on page 11.

FUEL The best fuel for your Cadillac The 1965 Cadillac engine requires a fuel with an octane rating of at least J00 Research Method and 89 Motor Method at sea level. Use of low octane fuels will result in severe engine knock, with possible damage to major engine parts. Engine detonation—known as spark knock or "pinging" —generally indicates the fuel's octane rating is below engine requirements. If "pinging" persists, even when the Owner responsibility Your new Cadillac, like all fine machinery, requires regular care to maintain its peak performance and preserve its showroom appearance. Periodic maintenance assures you of many miles of carefree driving, and protects your investment. A recommended maintenance schedule is in- 37 WITH THE EXCEPTION OF CANADA, YOU MAY FIND AVAILABLE FUELS SO LOW IN OCTANE THAT EXCESSIVE KNOCKING AND SERIOUS ENGINE DAMAGE RESULT FROM THEIR USE. TO MINIMIZE THIS POSSIBILITY, MAKE CERTAIN THAT FUELS OF SUFFICIENT OCTANE VALUE ARE AVAILABLE. BEFORE TAKING YOUR CADILLAC OUTSIDE THE UNITED STATES OR CANADA, WRITE TO CUSTOMER SERVICES SECTION, SERVICE DEPARTMENT, CADILLAC MOTOR CAR DIVISION, DETROIT, MICHIGAN 48232, GIVING: 1. your car's Vehicle Identification Number (located on the white plastic tag on the left front door lock pillar). 2. the countries in which you plan to travel. You will be furnished details of adjustments or alterations which should be made to the engine by your Authorized Cadillac Dealer before your departure. Failure to make the necessary changes, and subsequent operation under conditions of continuous or excessive knocking, constitute misuse of engine for which manufacturer is not responsible under terms of the manufacturer's New Vehicle Warranty. After arriving in a foreign country, contact the nearest Authorized General Motors Dealer for brand names of the best fuels available and for advice as to where they can be purchased. best available fuel is being used, see your Authorized Cadillac Dealer. The manufacturer regards engine damage caused by use of fuels of insufficient octane as engine misuse, for which the manufacturer is not responsible under the terms of the manufacturer's New Vehicle Warranty. Always specify a gasoline that will meet engine requirements. Do not be alarmed if the car loses power at fairly high altitudes. This is normal with reduced air density. Warning on operation in foreign countries IF YOU PLAN TO OPERATE YOUR CADILLAC IN MEXICO, OR OTHER FOREIGN COUNTRIES, 38 Cadillac Dealer who is familiar with the proper care of these devices. Gasoline tank Capacity of the fuel tank is approximately twenty-six gallons on all styles except the Commercial Chassis which has a twenty gallon capacity fuel tank. The gasoline filler cap is located behind the rear license plate. Pull out on the top of the plate to open. ENGINE Your Cadillac engine requires four quarts of oil on a refill after the crankcase has been drained. One additional quart is required when the oilfilteris changed. Proper oil level should always be maintained within the driving range marked on the oil dipstick. Each time you buy gasoline have the oil level checked after first allowing a few minutes for the oil to drain back into the oil pan. Add one quart when the level drops to the "ADD OIL" mark-NOT BEFORE. Do not operate the car with the oil level above the " F U L L " mark. Positive crankcase ventilator There are two types of Positive Crankcase Ventilator systems used to reduce air pollution by recycling crankcase fumes back to the intake manifold for burning. The closed system, installed on cars shipped to the state of California, uses a non-ventilated oil filler cap, an air cleaner strainer, and an external hose and pipe between the air cleaner and the left rocker arm cover. The system installed on all other cars uses a ventilated oil filler cap equipped with a filter. Under no circumstances should an oil filler cap from a closed system be used on other cars or serious engine damage will result. Specific maintenance requirements must be followed to permit satisfactory operation of each system. It is extremely important that required maintenance be performed or engine damage will result and the advantages of positive crankcase ventilation will be lost. Maintenance is required every 12,000 miles or twelve months, whichever occurs first. Consult your Authorized Initial oil fill The oil used to fill the crankcase at the factory is a high quality oil that meets General Motors Standard G M 4745-M. This factory-fill oil should be left in the engine for the normal time and mileage interval as specified in the table on page 40. During the first interval, it is particularly important to have the oil level checked each time you buy gasoline since most modern, high-compression engines require a break-in period for the oil usage to stabilize. Engine oil recommendations Use of the proper engine oil is your best assurance of continued reliability and performance from your Cadillac 39 engine. It is recommended that you use an oil which, according to the label on the can, is: (1) intended for service "MS", and (2) passes car makers' tests or meets General Motors Standard GM 4745-M. Your Authorized Cadillac Dealer Will be pleased to assist you in selecting the proper oil. Winter operation In areas where the temperature seldom goes below zero, most 10W oils provide the desired starting characteristics. Where the temperature is frequently below zero, a 5W or 5W-20 oil is recommended. E N G I N E OIL C H A N G E A N D VISCOSITY RECOMMENDATIONS The change interval shown in the following table is based on oils that meet the requirements stated under "Engine Oil Recommendations". The table will serve as a guide for selecting the proper oil change interval and the cor- rect oil viscosity at prevailing temperatures, lt is not necessary to change oil for the unseasonably cold or warm day encountered during Fall or Spring, Anticipated Lowest Temperatures Use SAE Viscosity Number Change Your Oil* Above Freezing (+32° F.)

Your Authorized Cadillac Dealer is well qualified to advise you. 40 ENGINE COOLING Your Cadillac's cooling system has been designed to maintain efficient engine operating temperatures. Check coolant level at each engine oil change to make certain proper coolant level is maintained. The system should be checked COLD. When coolant level drops one inch below the "Fill Cold" mark on the front of the radiator below the filler cap, fill only to "Fill Cold" mark. On Fleetwood SeventyFive models, maintain coolant level ¾ inch above cooling tubes in top of upper radiator tank. Do not overfill. Keep the system leak-free by having all connections checked regularly. Refer to page 42 for the capacity of your car's cooling system. buzzing noise from the radiator cap or by loss of coolant by boiling. CAUTION: If temperature gauge indicates above-normal temperature, make certain engine is running, or is allowed to cool down to normal temperature, before adding coolant. If gauge continues to register above normal with coolant at correct level, have your Authorized Cadillac Dealer make a thorough check of the system. Cooling system protection The inhibited year-around (permanent type) engine coolant used to fill the cooling system at the factory is a high quality solution that meets General Motors Specification 1899-M. This factory-fill coolant solution is formulated to withstand two full calendar years of normal operation without draining or adding inhibitors, and provides freezing protection to — 20°F. It is the owner's responsibility to keep the freeze pro- Important safety note Avoid removing the filler cap while the engine is at normal operating temperature, since hot coolant will spray out. This is a normal action for all pressure-type cooling systems. Should it become necessary to add coolant, place a cloth over cap, rotate cap toward left until first stop is reached, and allow pressure to escape. Then turn again to left to remove. Be sure cap is turned tightly when reinstalled. The temperature gauge can sometimes register " H " (Hot) under severe operating conditions.

Remove spare tire and jack components from luggage compartment. 4. BLOCK T H E WHEEL DIAGONALLY OPPOSITE T H E F L A T TIRE. 5. Install rack bar in jack base. HOISTS—SERVICE LIFTING EQUIPMENT The preferred type of hoist for lifting all 1965 Cadillac cars is one that engages the front suspension and rear axle, or all four wheels. A frame contact hoist may be used on most models when certain precautions are observed. Do NOT use a frame contact hoist to raise the Fleetwood Seventy-Five sedan and limousine. When using lifting equipment that engages the suspension on Fleetwood Seventy-Five sedans and limousines, center car over hoist so that hoist arms are adjacent to, and outboard of, support plates on front lower arms. When using lifting equipment that engages the suspension on cars with the perimeter-type frame, the car should be centered over hoist so that hoist arms engage outboard, flattened portion of front suspension lower arms. E M E R G E N C Y WHEEL C H A N G I N G INSTRUCTIONS The jack supplied with your Cadillac is intended for use only on this vehicle and only for wheel changing purposes. On cars with a shelf-mounted spare wheel and tire, the jack hook and rack bar are stored on the shelf in the luggage compartment just forward of the spare wheel. The jack base is stored on top of the spare wheel (secured by a through-bolt and wing nut) and the jack handle is stored under the tire. 44 6. Engage the jack hook on the tab located behind the bumper seams (front or rear) as shown. IMPORTANT: THE HOLE IN THE JACK HOOK MUST ENGAGE WITH THE TAB ON BACK OF BUMPER AT THE SEAM AREAS. 7. Raise jack until snug and reposition so that rack bar is approximately vertical. (On slopes, shift the jack base in the downhill direction until the rack bar is positioned vertically or pointing slightly uphill). 8. Remove front wheel disc or rear wheel shield and rear disc. Use tip of jack handle to remove wheel disc. Remove rear wheel shield by turning the locking rod tab located on center lower edge of shield. Place jack handle on locking rod tab (handle pointing rearward on left side or forward on right side), then rotate handle outward to loosen locking rod. Tip shield outward at the top while raising up and away from the mounting hooks. 9. Loosen wheel nuts Vi turn (counterclockwise). 10. Jack car until tire is off ground, remove mounting nuts and lift wheel off hub. 11. Reverse procedure to install wheel. Make certain wheel mounting nuts are tightened securely. Use rubber covered portion of jack handle to install wheel disc. TIRES The original equipment tires are engineered specifically for your 1965 Cadillac. When replacement is necessary, specify original equipment type tires of the correct size. Tire maintenance Avoid abusive treatment. Do not exceed tire loadings beyond those specified in the chart for extended periods. MAINTAIN CORRECT INFLATION PRESSURE. The tire inflation pressures are for cold tires. After a long or hard drive, pressures may be as much as six pounds higher than shown in the chart. Tire rotation Tire rotation is not essential under normal driving conditions, but is desirable if abnormal tire wear is observed. If abnormal tire wear is evident, the condition causing such wear should be determined and corrected. The correction may include interchanging tires. Under certain driving conditions, such as fast cornering, it may be desirable to interchange tires regularly. 7 NOTE: For wheel changing instructions of Fleetwood Seventy-Five sedans and limousines, refer to Section 3, Page 35. 45 Tire pressures (when checked cold) Tire Size Normal Load (Up to and Including) Ply Rating 8.00 x 15—Blackwall (Except Limousines and Commercial Chassis) 9.00 x 15—Whitewall (Except Limousines and Commercial Chassis) 4 4 9.00 x 15—Black or White (Except Limousines and Commercial Chassis) 8.20 x 15—Black or White (Fleetwood Seventy-Five Limousine only) 6 8 8.90 x 15—Black or White (Commercial Chassis only) 8 6 passengers plus 200 lbs.luggage 5 passengers 9 passengers plus 200 lbs.luggage Normal loading Extra equipment loading— not to exceed 7200lbs.

UNDERCOATING Washing Undercoating should not be applied to any moving or rotating part. It should be kept off air conditioner fittings and lines, body and antenna drainholes, and exhaust systems. On cars equipped with Automatic Level Control, particular care should be taken not to undercoat any fittings, lines, or system components. The best way to preserve the finish is to keep it clean. Frequent washings are required to maintain its original beauty. Wash the car with either warm or cold (never hot) water, not in the direct rays of the sun, and not while the sheet metal surfaces are hot. Never wipe dirt from dry painted surfaces because this may scratch the finish. The use of strong soaps and chemical detergents should be avoided. All cleaning agents should be promptly flushed from the surface and not allowed to dry or they may streak the finish. APPEARANCE MAINTENANCE Your Cadillac is finished with General Motors "MagicMirror" acrylic lacquer. This is a finish of maximum beauty which, in depth of color, gloss retention and durability, is 46 Polishing and -waxing Even though the acrylic paint on your car is more durable than conventional finishes, under certain conditions you may wish to wax or polish your car to provide maximum protection. Calcium chloride and other salts, ice-melting agents, road oil and tar, tree sap, chemicals from factory chimneys and other foreign matter may damage any automobile finish if allowed to remain in contact with paint. Prompt washing may not thoroughly remove these deposits and, particularly in geographical areas where these exposure conditions are severe, properly applied high quality polishes and waxes will provide the best protection. Authorized Cadillac Dealers offer both G M Magic Mirror and Blue Coral, which have proven their value in maintaining afinefinish. NOTE: Some chemical cleaners used for removing road oil and tars from painted surfaces have been found to be detrimental to acrylicfinishes.When purchasing a cleaner, make sure the instructions specifically state that the contents can be safely used on an acrylic finish. Chrome Many parts of your Cadillac, such as the bumpers and body hardware, are chrome plated. Chromium plating is susceptible to the actions of solutions being used on streets and highways to melt ice. Corrosive damage may also be caused by salt air near coastlines, industrial smoke and other conditions found in urban areas. When such conditions exist, frequent washing and waxing are necessary. G M Chrome Cleaner is an excellent material for cleaning the chrome on your car. Anodized aluminum parts Caustic cleaning agents will discolor anodized aluminum parts such as the grille and exterior trim. Do not permit the use of steam or cleaning solutions containing these agents for the cleaning of your car. Glass Dirt and insects can be removed from glass with clear water. Never wipe glass with dry paper or cloth. Do not operate windshield wipers when glass is dry. Periodic inspection and replacement of wiper blades reduce the possibility of glass becoming scratched and assure clear vision under adverse driving conditions. Care should be taken when cleaning a tinted back window. The use of harsh abrasives to clean the inside surface should be avoided, as some of the tinting material may be removed. Use a mild liquid household cleaner and remove with a soft cotton cloth. Leather Cadillac upholstery leathers are made from select hides and are protected by a special finish. They can be kept 47 clean normally by regular dusting. Leather that has become soiled can be cleaned with GM Vinyl Cleaner or thick, sudsy lather made from mild soap in lukewarm water. Avoid the use of excessive amounts of water. Remove the suds with a clean, damp cloth and wipe dry. If a sheen is desired, buff with clean cheesecloth. A high quality, glycerine base saddle soap can be used, if desired. To remove stains such as food, pet accidents and ink, clean as previously explained. For acids and perspiration stains, use cloth dipped in solution of one teaspoon of baking soda to one cup of water, and follow up with the soap and water treatment. In the event of blood stains, wipe off with cold water before using soap and water. Do NOT use naphtha, alcohol cleaners, household cleansing and bleaching agents, wax, polish, or oils. Fabric roof cover A natural rubber eraser will remove most soil spots from the fabric top. To wash the top, use lukewarm water and suds from a neutral soap. A cloth or soft-bristled brush is recommended for applying the solution of suds. Deeply embedded dirt can be removed with a moist cloth or sponge and a small amount of "foaming" type cleanser. All traces of the cleanser should be removed with clean water. Do NOT use volatile cleaners, naphtha, gasoline, harsh household cleaners and detergents, soaps, and bleaching agents. A stiff-bristled brush may seriously damage the fabric top. White sidewall tires SPECIAL N O T E S Before storing your car GM White Sidewall Tire Cleaner is recommended. Foaming type household cleansers may also be used. Do NOT use gasoline, kerosene, or any oil product that will discolor the tire sidewalls or damage the rubber. Lights If you do not plan to use your Cadillac for thirty days or longer, consult your dealer for recommended procedures that will prevent damage to the engine and chassis. When the headlights are on high beam a light above the Dirt and dust in the upholstery and carpets can be removed 60 mph mark on the speedometer glows red. Never leave the high beam on when driving behind another car or with frequent vacuuming. GM Kar Kleen is especially approaching an oncoming car. Have all your lights recommended for cleaning carpets and upholstery, and checked regularly. Your Authorized Cadillac Dealer has restoring them to like-new condition. GM Fabric Cleaner the modern equipment and genuine Cadillac parts to can be used on spots that are difficult to remove. handle these services promptly. Upholstery and carpets 48 Exhaust gases Poisonous carbon monoxide is always present in exhaust gases, especially when any concentration of these gases is present in the air such as in a garage, in congested traffic, or when you have stopped directly behind a vehicle with its engine running. With the air intake located just below the windshield, your Cadillac provides you with maximum protection against exhaust fumes. Exhaust gases may have strong odors which normally should give warning of their presence. However, the exhaust gases from some vehicles may not be so noticeable under certain conditions, and the senses of various people react differently. Precautions should be taken to avoid exposing yourself to the effects of these fumes. These gases contain poisonous carbon monoxide which by itself is tasteless, colorless and odorless. Controlled differential On cars equipped with Controlled Differential, do not jack one rear wheel off ground with the engine running. Transmission The "L" range should be used when going up or down very steep grades. Where traffic signs call forfirstor second gear always shift to "L" range. When parking on hills or steep inclines, place the shift lever in the Park "P" position to lock the rear wheels. Also apply the parking brake and turn the front wheels 49 toward curb. Always move the lever to Park "P" position and apply parking brake when leaving the car with engine running, such as when opening or closing the garage door, or when assisting passengers in or out. Applying the brakes For safer braking of the car on ice or snow, apply the brakes intermittently rather than continuously. Ask your dealer to familiarize you with the emergency provisions of the parking brake should the hydraulic assist be insufficient for any reason, and with the method of braking with both feet on the pedal if power assist is lost. SPECIFICATIONS Vehicle identification number The Vehicle Identification Number is used in license and insurance applications and in general reference to the automobile. This number is located on the rear portion of the crankcase behind the intake manifold, and on top of the frame right side rail to the rear of the radiator. For the owner's convenience it also appears on the plastic service notice plate on the left front door lock pillar.

I POWER OPERATED THE HYVRO-LECTRIC POWER SYSTEM The convertible coupe incorporates a hydro -lectric system to lower or raise the folding top assembly. After the top has been unlocked from the striker assembly at the windshield header, the top can be lowered and raised, respectively, by actuating the power top control switch. Hydraulic fluid from an electrically driven pump is forced through tubing to doubleacting, piston-type cylinders located at each quarter section of the car. Pressurized fluid entering the top of the hydraulic lift cylinders forces the pistons down - thus lowering the top. Pressurized fluid entering the bottom of the hydraulic lift cylinders forces the pistons upward - thus raising the top. This booklet explains and illustrates the method of operating the folding top and contains information on the care and maintenance of the folding top material, the rear window and proper storage of the folding top boot assembly. TOP BOOT The top boot is attached to the body with concealed "floatingtype" snap fasteners along the side and rear edges. At the front edge, there is a hook and pile fastener assembly with "floatingtype" fasteners at each end. When the folding top is raised, one of the following two methods maybe used for storing the boot. 1. The boot may be stored in its protective case in the rear compartment. IMPORTANT: If the boot is to be stored in the rear compartment of the car, it must be stored in its protective case to avoid unnecessary soilage or damage. 2. The top boot may be left attached to the pile fastener and folded into the top compartment well behind the rear seat back. NO OTHER ITEM should be placed on the top compartment well or beneath the top compartment well from the rear compartment area since it may interfere with the proper operation of the top and may damage the top, the rear window or the top boot. The top boot protective case should be kept in the rear compartment. TO LOWER THE TOP STOP THE CAR. If the top boot has been left attached to the pile fastener and stored behind the rear seat back, turn the boot over the seat back and fold the ends, as shown in the illustration. 2. Rotate each locking handle inboard until the lock hook lever is disengaged from the striker on the windshield header. IMPORTANT: DO NOT raise the front roof rail above the windshield header by hand. 3. Actuate the power top control switch until top is in fully lowered position. TOP WOT INSTALLATION 1. Remove the top boot from the protective case. Place empty protective case in the rear compartment. 2. Place top boot in position over folded top and engage boot fasteners to the studs along the body molding and on the rear quarter trim. 3. Engage fasteners on front of boot to studs on rear seat back panel. Press down on forward edge of boot to secure hook and pile fastener. TO *AIS€ THE TOP 1. STOP THE CAR. Disengage all top boot snap fasteners from studs on molding and rear quarter trim. Turn boot ends over the seat back and fold ends of boot toward center of car, as shown in the illustration. II the top boot is thoroughly dry, the top boot may be removed from the pile fastener, folded and stored in the rear compartment. IMPORTANT: If the boot is to be stored in the rear compartment of the car, it must be stored in its protective case to avoid unnecessary soilage or damage. The top boot may be left attached to the pile fastener and folded into the top compartment -well behind the rear seat back. NO OTHER ITEM should be placed on the top compartment well or beneath the top compartment well from the rear compartment area since it may interfere with the proper operation of the top and may damage the top, the rear window or the top boot. The top boot protective case should be kept in the rear compartment. 2. Turn down sun visors and operate power top control switch until top is fully raised and guide studs on the lock assembly are engaged in the striker holes. Rotate each locking handle outboard until the lock hook lever is fully engaged with striker on windshield header and handle is parallel with the side roof rail. NOTE: BE SURE TOP IS SECURELY LOCKED TO WINDSHIELD HEADER B E FORE STARTING THE CAR. 70 LOWER REAR WINVOW Be sure no miscellaneous objects have been placed on the folding top compartment well or beneath the folding top compartment well from the rear compartment area. Any object which obstructs the rear window or top operation could cause damage to the convertible top or rear window glass. Unlock the top from the windshield header. 3. Actuate the power top control switch until top is above the windshield header as shown in illustration. IMPORTANT: DO NOT raise the front roof rail above the windshield header by hand. 4. Slide zipper fastener, indicated at "A" in illustration, upward and beyond back window retaining strap indicated at " B " in illustration. IMPORTANT: DO NOT disengage back window retaining strap from rear bow. 5. Continue operating zipper across top, beyond opposite retaining strap, until zipper reaches the stop at opposite' side of window; then, detach lower portion of zipper from zipper slider. DO NOT FORCE THE ZIPPER OPEN. 6. 7. While firmly holding window in its approximate closed position, unfasten both retaining straps from rear bow. Carefully lower the window into the top compartment well DO NOT DROP WINDOW into top compartment as damage may occur to the glass or zipper. Lock top to windshield header prior to moving" car. TO RAISE REAR WINDOW 1. Unlock top from windshield header. Using power, raise top off header. 2. Raise window with retaining straps and fasten retaining straps to rear roof bow as shown in illustration. 3. While holding window in its approximate closed position, engage lower end of zipper into zipper slide. Pull slide upward, across the top, and beyond both retaining straps until slide reaches its closed position. DO NOT FORCE THE ZIPPER CLOSED. Holding window in its approximate closed position when operating zipper will aid zipper operating effort and prevent jamming of the zipper. 4. Actuate the power top control switch until guide studs on the lock assembly are engaged in the striker holes. 5. Lock top to windshield header prior to moving the car. CAPS OF *FA* WINPOW The back curtain in the Convertible Coupe is provided with a large glass rear window. DO NOT lower the top when the rear window is dirty. Grit and accumulated foreign matter may scratch the glass. The rear window glass may be cleaned in the same manner as all body glass. Volatile cleaning agents should not be used to clean the rear window. These liquids, if spilled, could have a deteriorating effect on the back curtain material, top material or may spot the painted finish on the body panels. GBNEXAL INFORMATION DO NOT OPERATE THE TOP UP OR DOWN WHILE CAR IS IN MOTION. The top must be securely locked before starting the car. 2. DO NOT obstruct the mechanical operation of the top. 3. DO NOT RAISE the top above the windshield header by hand. 4. DO NOT place miscellaneous objects such as the top boot protective case, golf clubs, luggage, etc., on folding top compartment well or beneath folding top compartment well from the rear compartment area. 5. To prevent water stains, mildew or possible shrinkage of the top material, do not keep the top folded for a long period of time if it is damp or watersoaked. 6. Allow back curtain and top material to become warm and pliable before attempting to operate top in temperatures below 32° fahrenheit. 7. Under certain operating conditions, zipper operation can also be eased by application of silicone, beeswax or non-staining grease stick. This material should be applied as required, the zipper should be cycled several times and then the excess material should be wiped from the zipper. 8. The exposed portions of the hydraulic lift cylinder piston rods should be kept clean of foreign matter. This can be accomplished by raising the top and wiping the exposed portions of the piston rods using a cloth dampened with brake fluid. 1. \ CLEAMIH9 THE TOP The top should be washed frequently with neutral soap suds, lukewarm water and a brush with soft bristles. Rinse top with sufficient quantities of clear water to remove all traces of soap. If the top requires additional cleaning after using soap and water, a mild foaming cleanser can be used. Rinse the whole top with water, then apply a mild foaming type cleanser to the entire top. Scrub with a small soft bristle handbrush, adding water as necessary until the cleanser foams to a soapy consistency. Remove the first accumulated soilage with a cloth or sponge before it can be ground into the top material. Apply additional cleanser to the top and scrub until the top is clean. Care must be exercised to keep the cleanser from running onto body finish as it may cause streaks if allowed to run down and dry. After the entire top has been cleaned, rinse the top generously with clear water to remove all traces of cleanser. If desired, the top can be supported from the underside during the scrubbing operations. After cleaning always be sure the top is thoroughly dry before it is lowered. Lowering the top while it is still wet or damp may cause mildew or unsightly wrinkles. Do not use volatile cleaners or household bleaching agents on the top material.
