  1. 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
  2. Forgot to mention that this is obviously the bracket for the dual quad 425 set up .Thanks Ken
  3. I am looking for a kick down bracket as pictured below for a 425 . Dick Sweeney was kind enough to supply me with this picture . I would greatly appreciate any help as it is the only thing holding me up right now . Thanks KReed ROA 14549
  4. If I am not mistaken, Diamond Back tires sells them. KReed ROA 14549
  5. Having just done a frame off on a 72 , guarantee that $30 K won't cover half the cost . More power to her - it's a beautiful car . Can't tell you the number of auctions I have been too where there are 6 inches of receipts and the car brings 30cents on the dollar . As noted above , it's not about the money for these folks . It's all about the experience - we should all be that lucky . KReed ROA 4549
  6. Hi 48 super -love your car . Is that verde green ? Thanks KReed ROA 14549
  7. Hi Ed - assume you are talking about Gordon's car? If so , I have seen that car and it is indeed gorgeous ! My 65 is in primer right now and I am vacillating on whether to paint it in its original Verde Green or something else . I have no interest in the 400 point thing - just want something that looks good . This car was all original when I bought it three years ago and did have faded gray webs from sitting in a Minnesota barn for 30 years but suspect black would look good as well if I did go back to the Verde Green ( interior is black) . Thanks Ken
  8. The wire wheel covers are definitely 63's with that spinner and easily disassembled by 4 screws holding the spinner and 8 screws holding the spokes . All pieces can then be easily cleaned and polished . Biggest problem is dents in the rim which are quite frequent unfortunately and difficult to fix. . As mentioned above by Randall this is a 63 wheel . One thing I am unsure of is whether tri-shield was multicolored in the Riviera and plain stainless in the Wildcat of that year ?? Maybe others could clarify . KReed ROA 14549
  9. Thanks for the info Winston . KReed ROA 14549
  10. Hi Ed or anyone out there - just had my 65 GS wheels replated by Rally America and need to tell them what color (silver/gray ) I want in the webs. Any help would be very much appreciated . Thanks KReed ROA 14549
  11. Glad to here you have not been cured of the "affliction" . There is no such thing as too many Riviera 's . I would have a hard time parting with mine . KReed ROA 14549
  12. Someone got a sweet deal on Paul's nice 65 GS . Are you out of the Riviera business now Paul? KReed ROA 14549
  13. Here's the data plate -looks like the real deal KReed ROA 14549
  14. A good friend of mine had his 1964 Riviera 425 single carb at a show today and asked me a question about his air intake that I have personally never seen . Was this an original feature at anytime ? The intake port is under the left front bumper .Thanks KReed ROA 14549
  15. Those rubber strips are impossible to find in decent shape and no one is reproducing them - I looked for over a year . I finally went my lock parts store and found something that looked reasonable and completely covered the holes in the bumper . I can send you info on that if you are interested or will be able to send some to you . Think I spent about $35 or $40 on mine . You do have to trim the ends to your specs which I did with my Dremel . Enclosing a couple of pics . KReed ROA 14549
