  6. 1964 Special / Skylark Engine

    I like listening to the stories. I've listened to a gut tell me about a 63 or 4 Riviera with a "factory stroker" 2-4bbl engine. He out ran cops and flew over roads around Dayton. He enjoyed it and I listened...then he traded a tilt column with wood wheel/horn bar to me for a 2x4 manifold A friend Mark grew up in Flint with an uncle working at Buick. He claimed uncle had some sort of Skunk works wild engine 62 Buick... Enjoy the stories, they are born of a special time when some of the bs seemed possible.

  9. 1963 - 1965 Riviera 4-speed

    Bernie- I have a Mustang I feel the same way- got to rev the thing to get to the power- Like Tom - I've seen a couple done. The first one was up in Vermont. Joe Bettis had a big junk yard and an appreciation for 3-pedal cars. He had converted his 65 Riviera black/black cloth interior to a 3-speed/overdrive + 3.91:1 rear. Too cool. The other was Dave Lewis of 37/38 restoration fame. He was building himself a 64 Riviera with a stick. I'm still working on my 65 Wildcat conversion that has many of the same shortcomings. Ted
  10. 1965 Buick "Super Wildcat" convertible

    Greetings and Welcome to Super Wildcat world! I'm glad to see this one show up on BCA site. When doing the research on 65 Wildcats from Sloan Museum documents I found there were Super WIldcat Production: 117 4-doors 327 Coupes 107 convertibles This is interpreted from the daily production sheets available from Sloan Museum. Here is part of my fleet- the Sea Foam convertible is a original Super Wildcat- sold in Cincinnati, still here!

    Sorry, I did not know PUI would do a customized version for you. So the car was born a Deluxe, and now it is a Custom interior.

    PUI is a manufacturer of interior parts- seat covers, door panels etc. They used my 65 Custom Wildcat seats - buckets, bench, convertible - to reproduce authentic parts. This is what they look like:
