  1. I checked with a couple different companies and got prices between $750 and $800, then called McNutt, they told me $550, it was right at 650 miles. I kind of wondered if they were on the up and up, partly because of the price and partly because of how quick they said they could get it moved, but they came through on both accounts. I've had a couple other cars transported in the last few years and it was probably the easiest one I've done so far. The others were most difficult because of trying to deal with people I didn't feel I could trust, then I got the car moved by someone else anyway. This just took one call/contact, he gave me a price, and stayed in touch with me until it was completed. I would definitely recommend McNutt, at least from the dealings I had with them for this move. Of course I hope to NOT need that kind of service again … EVER!
  2. I'm not sure how "unusual" it is, but it seems to not be correct from what is was built with, so, it might not have been "tri-tone" before changes were made to it? The body tag … Shows ... Trim … 684 … Sandalwood … Vinyl Notchback Bench (optional) … But it has cloth bench seats Paint … 61F … Sandpiper Beige … it does not look "beige" to me, but, what is left of the vinyl top is dark brown Built … 10B … second week of October 1969
  3. Thanks, it was at one time, now I just have to decide if I am going to make it "nice" again?
  4. I was wondering about the front too? It looked like you were going to match the step front of the BS&S when you started, I thought that would have given it an interesting look. Looks great, and I know you'll always get "suggestions", not that you ever need them.
  5. Tom, Long story short, the car was recently given to me, and the last time I had seen it was at the 2007 ROA meet in Asheville, NC.
  6. Kendall, you can get the ROA roster from the website, there are 11 members listed in Scottsdale/Phoenix, possibly get in touch with one of them and they can take a look for you? There isn't a large percentage of members that frequent this forum, or the internet for that matter, but you might be able to get it looked at by calling a member direct.
  7. I used McNutt Transport, Brian D, a BCA member and past BCA President from here in NC gave me their name on the Buick forum, they gave me a good price, probably less than I could have done it myself, and actually very good service. I’m not sure what I’m going to do with it next, but it is here. I had not seen the car for over 10 years so didn’t know its current condition, I was just told I needed to get it moved, so that was the reason for the quick transport request.
  8. Na, this one wouldn’t have stayed at Buick Gardens, it needs lots and lots of WORK, if it’s even repairable. I have to decide what I’m going to do with it now that it’s here. I had thought about checking to see if you would pick it up from Mobile and take it home, then I could come and pick it up from Buick Gardens. I looked at the map and saw that Atlanta was right at half-way and I know you are fairly close, AND it would have given me a chance to see Buick Gardens in person too!
  9. Yep, it’s here, not sure what I’m going to do with it next, but it is here. I had not seen the car for over 10 years so didn’t know its current condition, I was just told I needed to get it moved, so that was the reason for the quick transport request.
  10. Thanks all for the suggestions, this transport has been completed. Thanks again,
  11. Thanks Brian, you were right-on about McNutt. Very reasonable, and, even though I thought they were just talking a good story when I first called, they got it completed in short order, the car was delivered today.
  12. Thanks all for the suggestions, this transport has been completed. Thanks again,
  13. Here is the link if anyone wants to take a look ... 1964, 1965, 1966 Buick Riviera Rosewood Steering Wheel Horn Bar 64, 65, 66 Up to $2225 now, a little over 1 hour to go.
  14. I thought about renting a trailer and doing it myself, but, my '01 1/2 ton GMC, with high miles, kind of worried me, then the thought of the trip with NO A/C pretty much changed my mind. And, for the price I found, it wasn't really worth it for me to do it myself.
  15. Not mine, but I had a NC member send me a YouTube link that includes his Riviera. It’s an advertisement for Steele Rubber Products done by Performance TV, Larry’s car is at the very start and then at about 3:56 to 5:20 in the video.
