  1. Thanks Tom- that makes sense finally . Is the "D" code for vinyl top only used for the 69 ? Thanks Ed - will give it a try with the ashtray out. Thinking back it didn't rattle until I took the radio out for repair - maybe didn't get it secured right when I they put it back in ?.. One of the little things that drives me crazy in any car is a rattle . KReed 14549
  2. Nice car with a great color combo . I am still confused about the data plate . "85" is copper mist- Riviera only color 686 is buckskin interior . If the car was originally crystal blue (D code) , would anyone EVER put buckskin interior in it? I think the car has definitely been repainted and suspect the vinyl top added when repainted . Have no idea what the "D" stands for . I think the car is worth the money personally and suspect it could be bought for $17 K if someone had a stack of $100 bills . I have a trumpet gold /black vinyl top,GS with buckets that is a dream to drive . Got a rattle under the dash though that is driving me crazy - have looked everyone and can't find it. KReed 14549
  3. Hi Bernie- shirts arrived two days ago . Sneaked them into laundry to be washed hoping my wife wouldn't notice . Got a text while I was at work to call home . She. was laughing and asked me if I intended to wear them or were they to go in the Goodwill pile ? LOL. I didn't dare tell her I paid money for them. I have not yet worn them in public but when I do I suspect it will be a solo trip at night to my building to work on my cars . They have already been worth their cost . Will let you know how my first outing goes . Thanks Kreed ROA 14549

  5. Gotta have em both Bernie . Send me a PM with your address and I will send you $$$ .Thanks
  6. Not mine - looks pretty good at first glance - reasonably priced if it's decent in person
  7. Just got a note from Bob Monetti- he "no longer repairs wood grain wheels ". Will try the other route and let you know how it goes . Thanks everyone KReed ROA 14549
  8. Thanks Winston, will check it out . Ken
  9. Thanks for everyone's help and suggestions. Have contacted Bob Monetti and waiting to hear back but think that he does NOT do these faux wood wheels . Suspect I am going to try it myself as recommended by Seafoam ,Ed and Bernie. Will keep you updated . Thanks again KReed ROA 14549
  10. I have a faux wood steering wheel that I removed from a 66 GS that needs repair . Does anyone repair these or any suggestions of how to fill this gap ? It's all there othwise so would like to,preserve it if possible . Thanks Kreed ROA 14549
  11. Thanks for all the replies and suggestions. I will grab a picture and post it . Will try and make one and let you know how it turns out. Thanks KReed 14549
  12. Thanks for the reply- mine is still intact but literally crumbling away . Every time I get in the car , there are few more " crumbs " in the back floorboard ! Just waiting for it to fall apart ..... I suspect I Will have to try the same thing you did and make one . KReed ROA 14549
  13. I need center console lens for my 69 Riviera with bucket seats . The plastic lens is rectangle and about 2x 3 inches and fits at the very back of the console. Have looked everywhere - no luck so far. Any help would be greatly appreciated . Thank you. KReed ROA 14549
  14. Still looking for one of these 65-66 dual quad kickdown brackets if anyone has any suggestions. The guy that was making these reproduction ones is no longer with us according to Dick Sweeney . Any help,would be greatly appreciated . KReed ROA 14549
  15. Probably a reasonable price if you need one but it always puzzles me when someone labels something "NOS" when it clearly is a used piece . The "N" stand for new not used so maybe they should say "UOS" instead ! If this truly is new then it's had a rough storage life for 50 years . KReed ROA 14549
