  1. Grass isn't even growing here in NE ILL with ground temps still in the 30's or maybe low 40's.
  2. Post #542 was ebay link, I posted Chicago CL ad for same car. Clasic-Old car type dealer. I've seen Buicks at too many of these kind of places and the sellers are simply not knowledgeable about our cars. If it had disc brakes I'd expect at least a picture of it. No data tag picture either, not sure it was originally black. Door jams look painted with striker latch painted too.
  3. Here is CL ad for black 64 from NC. Disc brakes? https://chicago.craigslist.org/nwc/ctd/d/1964-buick-riviera-gorgeous/6558161178.html
  4. Black 64 from NC https://www.ebay.com/itm/Riviera-GORGEOUS-ORIGINAL-CAR-FROM-SOUTH-CAROLINA-SEE-VI/282921015033?hash=item41df6816f9:g:vs4AAOSwbtdazlPg&vxp=mtr I'm real close to the dealer that has this car if anybody wants it inspected.
  5. I would love to see this in person but I fear great pain would be suffered at home in he event this lost puppy followed me home. Bernie how about you?
  6. Buicks to disappear?

    Does anyone else find the new cars are less intuitive to drive? I could get in most older cars and in a few seconds know what worked what. Had a loaners DTS and a loaner MDX and Loaner X3 recently hated them all. Was happy to get the radio on and the heater to work. The automatic speed cruise control makes me crazy. For me there is a sweet spot that the cars are modern enough, ABS, Bluetooth, traction control but not all the automatic crap. I also hate the fact that doing your own oil changes is about as much as you can do without all kinds of special tools and equipment. We've moved to electrical gremlins from mechanical ones.
  7. 64 Electra parts

    bump
  8. 70 GS overflow tank

    yes it is
  9. I ordered a set of 4 Monroe's from Rock. The other ride issue component is tires. Radials ride much different than the original Bias Ply, all other things being equal.
  10. Factory Nailhead 2x4 Set Up $1900

    I went back and reread the ad, I now wonder if the repaired intake is impacting the sale. I have a number I'd throw at him and a few spare parts to upgrade a couple deficiencies, just not sure it's worth it. If this was available when I was putting my set up together I would have been all over it in a minute. I wish he had better picts of the air cleaner. The intake is the wrong color for 64 too. Ed, you're right about having the timing backwards. I ended up getting a second distributor for mine with the correct curving. The AC thing is funny when you think about how many "luxury" cars of the day didn't have it.

    Ed, I think you are correct for 65 on A8 but no GS option in 64. Maybe Mooney will comment later. 63 401 distributor will work since it is factory set for 5 degree vs 12 on single 4. Going deep in the woods here but isn't the cruise vacuum line different also? Probably time of year is reason for not selling also aluminum Buick script covers not included. Repopped kick down brackets are around as are the AC bracket if not concerned about factory original.
  12. Factory Nailhead 2x4 Set Up $1900

    It is a 64 intake, the bosses for the kick down bracket are different 64-65/66. No numbers for carbs but assume 64 also. Correct on needing kick down bracket and valve cover bracket if AC equipped. Other different parts from single 4 bbl include the trans vacuum line and pcv hose, brake vacuum line may be different too.
  13. NOS Black 64 seat belts

    sorry already sold
