We inherited a 64 from the family. Black with red interior, and the red has certainly grown on me.

The Black & Red and Red & Black color combination are popular for many people. The Red is fine with me. The condition of the car was what I had as top priority in my search .

Plus you add that red air cleaner to the mix and you've definitely got a looker.

Thank you very much. I was wiping down the engine compartment when I took the stock Red air cleaner off so I could see better. ill take a picture of the engine with the red air cleaner. The engine is silver color. Thankfully previous owners did not change a thing.

Looks like it's been well taken care of. Do everyone a favor. Turn your battery around so the positive cable isn't so close to the hood when the hood is closed.  A few of us have experienced big electrical shorts when contact has been made.  The cars came from the factory with the positive cable next to the radiator.  Good safety precaution.  

 

Jim Cannon has all of the dealer service bulletins on a CD; well worth the $10 he gets for them.  One of them shows how to run the positive cable between the battery and the hold down bolt to keep it from making contact with the bell of the larger four note horn.

Ed, I'll take action on the battery cable change. Thank you as I embrace safe practices. I'll get the service bulletin Jim has for $10.00

im not certain if my post made it to the AACA no hot air. Nonetheless less, after the broken bell arm was fabricated and replaced in the control panel AND vacuum water control valve was installed per Jim Cannon's instructions so I have hot air. Had it not been for Jim's tech tip on the ROA WEBSITE on how to replace the water control valve id still be wondering.

thank you

We've had the rainiest winter on record here in Seattle, but the sun finally peeked out yesterday so I took my 64 down to the marina and the beach. Just got her back from the mechanic after a tune up and Pertronix install.

Weather is finally coming around and I've been able to swap in lowering springs and pop on the new wheels. Before and after shots show what Jamco's  2" drop provides although the springs that came out where way too big. Hoping after alignment the front settles in !

Looks good.  Your front is going to drop after some driving for sure.  Give it a couple hundred miles, do some cornering and hit some bumps.  If it doesn't, you can still cut a bit out of them if it's still too nose high.  If it stays like that, a 1/3 of a coil should do it.

Yes, sir. A very fine looking Riviera indeed. I like the wheel covers and white walls.
