1960 Cadillac goes swimming
My 1960 Cadillac is under flood water 'til next Wednesday. After that, I'd like to get it running again. Any advice on where to start?
The sixty-two sedan 1960 model Caddy was flooded about 2 years ago and hasn't been touched since. Apparently it had been running. And last night before the water came, my inspection showed it to be in pretty good condition. Fluid lines seemed to be free of water, with some old oil and transmission fluid still there. But the power steering reservoir was full of water.
My plan is to drain and change the fluids, put in a new battery, drain the gas tank of water, turn the key and see what happens. Any other ideas? Any specialty forums I should check out for vintage cadillac issues?
What's important right now is to get the thing running so I can move it around. The Car body is in good shape with very minor rust, but we'll see after it's submerged for a second time. Interior will be shot, but again that isn't as big an issue right now.
