It looks great Paul. I personally really like the red line on the grill on this one. very fitting. Black plate is excellent. It would look good with it on the front also I think. 

 

One of a kind and Mint. Wicked cool. Thats the NOS grill? Man, that carpet looks brand new. Wheels and tire combo look hot and rarely see that style.

 

Now just go get a set of cornering lamps and install a red lightbulb in them, ehehehehehe.

Thanks Chimera! Yes NOS in. I got the P02's NOS still in boxes. Cost me an embarrassing fortune.

 I'll take cornering lamps with LED's to go, please B)

Wow originally a black car and original paint! Quite uncommon. Looks great! So do you have a black plate for the front?

Here are a couple of scans from 1988 pictures. My garage is freshly finished and you might be able to see the bare studs through the door.

Hi, new to the Forum, and happy to be here.  Here's my '63 with a '65 front end.  Finishing up a lot of the previous owner's "sins", but it's been a good start to my new custom car build.  I'm in Montana, so finishing up the engine compartment, the interior, and doing the trunk in black leather while it's still winter.

Lucas,

Good looking car.  I know there are a lot of others besides myself who like the looks of a 65 front clip on the 63 / 64 body.  The stripes/scallops are tastefully done.  Keep posting.

Thanks, Ed.  Will do.  I'm on a few other forums so I won't be on every day.....(also have a '72 Mach 1 with a 552" stroker I bought when I was 12, a '70 Coupe Deville, and a '74 F100 with a 395" stroker).  But, I will be on as much as possible, I love that this is Rivieras only!  Been going through the posts, and it looks like a great group of people and I'll try to help as much as I can when I'm able to share my little bit of knowledge haha.  This has been my "other" dream car after my Mach 1, and I've been going through quite a bit on it.  The previous owner was a serious hack......

It is a good looking car, but does not have a 65 front clip. 65 grille, yes, but these are 63 front fenders with lights behind the fender grilles. These are not 65 clamshells. But still makes a good looking car.

Correct, sir.  Sorry, I misspoke, forgot I was on a Riviera only site and the guys here would actually know this.  I've said '65 front end just to keep it simple for the common "car guys" haha.....No worries :)

The woodgrain is going to be custom red burlwood so I've got new panels out getting done, and I'm going to cover the center console in black leather to match my leather dash and package tray. Will be redoing the armrests in black, as I feel the red on them now looks a little chinzy.

Looks good!

 

That looks like a Sherwood dash kit? It appears to be the one piece across the dash? I think they were the only ones that made them that way.

 

Sherwood is the one I used in my '95, I think it gives it a cleaner look than the kits that are five pieces across the dash.

 

Nice find, and welcome to the ROA!

Exterior done, except for detailing the hubcaps.  Need to get on the interior now.  

 

Worlds slowest fix up.

Not the "worlds slowest"! I've had my first '65 for 22 years and it's STILL setting in the garage with the front clip off of it!

After spending far over a decade in storage in a dry Arizona garage, I admittedly cringed when I saw that the brief California rain caught this triple black 68 GS. Thankfully I could tell that who I got the Riviera from waxed the hell out of it. 

 

If I take a step back I think It has a nice look wet, however.

Howdy y'all (from France),

here two pictures I took this yesterday, at weird angles, but it somehow shows the glory of the boat tail's design.

Side story : the rear picture shows the "ramp on a ramp" wooden devices I had to construct in order to protect my Riv's underbelly from being scratched when going over the sidewalk border and down into the (shoehorn) basement garage.

This made it possible for us to take the car out last sunday for a local US cars festival here in Niort, France.

Keep on trucking !
