  1. I’ll eventually be looking into this too. As said on the original post, my driver’s side front is the worst but I’m not too sure I will be able to remove the scratches on it. Any thoughts on if these will come out with some, well lots and lots, of work? Guess we’ll see what happens when I do give it a try? I do have a spare that isn’t quite as bad as this one so I might see what happens with it?

    Sorry to hijack MrEarl, just wanted to mention the above ...

    Yep, I noticed the length of the quarter panel, the extra door handle, and the window down on the back door, actually quite a bit different. It is "kind of close" at first glance, but definitely not a last generation Riviera. Sorry Ed.

    Is that one of those 4 door Rivieras? Possibly a Chrysler product in the background not a Riviera?
  5. How about this one ... 1971 Buick Riviera GS 63k Original, Always Garaged. Not an unusual color combination or anything, but, I'm not too sure they really want to sell it with a starting bid of $37,500? It does look nice but all I can say is WOW!

  7. Mine turned about the same as yours did. I haven’t located any ratio stampings but was able to find the “X” on the flange too. I am guessing both sides were turning the same direction too? Besides the “X” that is another way to tell it is a posi.
  8. Actually, I believe the gear ratio is what is stamped on the tube, the “X” in the circle is on the bottom of the flange.
  9. I was going through some OLD stuff I had looked at over the years and ran across something I thought was fairly interesting. Just wondering if anyone has ever seen this “display” Buick Riviera that was for sale on ebay several years ago? All I have are some crappy scans of a couple crappy printed pictures from it, but here goes anyway. It was advertised as … 1995 Buick : Riviera coupe DISPLAY CAR 1/3 car with stand This auction was back in May 2000 and was in Meriden, CT. I’m pretty certain it would have been parted out for what the parts were worth, but, just thought I would put the question out and see if anyone might know of what happened to it. I did look into buying it and the shipping and I couldn’t do anything with it at the time, just wondering if anyone might know anything about it?

    I missed RED Friday ... AGAIN! I'll go ahead and post it anyway ... As usual I'm a day late and a dollar short.
  12. Go for it Lamar, as Ed says. That way I could see how it turns out since who knows when I might get to putting mine into the '65.
  13. Winston, Just thought I would mention it, the under the hood method has been documented, it is listed in the Technical Tips in the Members Only section of the ROA website. David, Since you are an ROA member you can go to the "Technical Tips" section of the ROA website and it gives details for the different methods to change the heater core. The following "Tips" are listed ... 2. '63-'65 Heater Core Replacement - Inside Method 3. '63-'65 Heater Core Replacement - Under Hood Method 4. '63-'65 Heater Core Replacement. GM Service Bulletin, May 21, 1965 I was thinking the under hood method had been posted on here at one time but I am not certain? As far as buying one I believe your best bet is having yours recored? From what I have heard the replacements that are for sale don't fit, so a recore is the best way to go. Perhaps a more experienced member will comment about this?
  14. Yes, '95 was the only year the HVAC and radio was recessed, it changed in '96, and was the same for the '96-'99. The "overhang" was there for all of them though. The one in your picture, and mine in post #2 are '95s, the pictures in Ed's post, #6, are both from '96 to '99 Rivs.
  15. I saw that thread too, it looks like the Smokey Amethyst Metallic to me, and what they called Platinum Beige in 1995 for the interior. I wouldn't be to sure about getting it going again, the condition it is in now from setting, it would take way more than it could ever be worth. I did gut a '97 a while back that had the Gray interior, it was decent, the price was right, just figured it wouldn't hurt to have it.
