I installed a re-chromed 1969 Riviera gas cap door on the Aqua Zephyr today. The '69 gas cap door has the Riviera logo on it where the '68 door is plain. It makes for a classier rear end, in my opinion. I wonder if any original 1968 Riviera owners changed their gas cap doors for' 69 versions back in the day? The guy I bought it from found it in a box in the trunk of a 69 Riv. It even came with the 1997 receipt for rechroming from "The Bumper Boyz" in LA.

Ana, I have similar dents in each end of my back bumper, but not as bad as this. Sorry for your problems...

The wife and I took the Aqua Zephyr out to a little wooded spot here in Fayetteville, NC near sunset to take some pictures.

Here are some of the shots we took:

Your car looks bomb, and that's a nice place. I love the steering wheel too.

Here is my 71 Riviera. Just picked it up 5 days ago. I had a 71 Riviera about 15 years ago, I was young and dumb, didn't pay my parking tickets in NYC and the car was taken away. I have always wanted to make it right, this is my redemption.

It sure is. My steering wheel and dashboard came all cracked up, but I'll get to replacing it.

New member here of this forum from Australia - having purchased this today.  I have been a ROA Member for some time but have been  inactive as I waited for the right car.  Originally purchased by Rose Piper of Hollywood California, this car was imported to Australia in 2009. The car is mostly original, except for a repaint last year, which I am told was not really necessary, but the owner was fastidious.  It has AC, recently restored, and cruise control, otherwise it has few options.

 

He and the previous owners are collectors, though I intend to use this  as a wedding car as well as for my photography business. It has 43,000 original miles.  I have been looking for a first generation for over a decade and it happens this gentleman was selling his whole collection as he downsizes living arrangements. Lucky me!

After eight long months since my accident, this is where the shop has mine today. They want to redo a spot behind the tire; looks like a body line, so they have to take it down and reblock sand and repaint that section. Whole car still needs jambs painted, a cut and buff, and reassemble. Gettin closer; I am wanting to drive BAD.

Sir, may I ask who your insurance company is? In the horrible event I wreck my 63 Riviera I want to make sure I have good coverage.

( Muscle Shoals- mighty fine music came out of that part of the country) I happened to get to play a tune or two with a gent named T-Bone Montgomery from Muscle Shoals. Right nice fellow and great singer song writer.) Yes, Sir - a lot of American Music history was made there at Muscle Shoals.

Red Riviera Bob

 

oh, it looks like your body shop knows their business shown in your pictures. Good luck!

Right now, I have State Farm, but I will probably choose Grundy once it's fixed, since they have no mileage limitations. 

You're right about Muscle Shoals; great music from here. Gregg Allman recorded his last album at FAME Studios, due to be out next month. His late brother, Duane, as you probably know, was a session musician there for everybody from Boz Scaggs to Wilson Pickett.

Thank you on the insurance information. I've been a music hound since I was a boy. I don't know as much as some about the music , but more than most.

Good luck with your Riv. Like I said it shows the shop knows what they are doing. Up here( central Maryland), if a shop can get the $$$$ they want, they won't take the job.
