My goodness, Santa is comin' to town

 

I had no idea these used parts commanded these sums;

 

"Pan $250

Foam $100

Gear $250

Motor $400

Cables - extra"

 

Wasn't '72 a moon roof (solid panel), not a "sunroof"?  

 

Paul

Moonroof, sunroof, all these terms to me, mean the same - a hole cut in the roof to allow a simulated convertible experience.  There is a 73 on my local craigs list for $1500 that has the "moonroof", MaxTrac and posi (GS) and to be honest, I could care less about the moonroof option, MaxTrac.  I love 73 Rivieras.  For some reason I like them better than the 71-72's.  I like the front ends better and the boat tail design of the 73's.  

 

That seller feels he has a super rare car commanding the $1500.  He does, but the Max trac will probably never be operational again even if restored, and the moonroof is a curiosity at best.  With working A/C, and good ventilation, few owners care about that moon roof in my opinion. 

 

I have owned 5 1971-73 Boattails and the interiors are a bit dark and lack the airy-ness of the earlier Rivieras.  Therefore, again, not sure how much the option added to the driving pleasure of a 73.  To me, buckets, console, a GS, especially a Stage 1, that 3.42 posi, and rebuilt suspension with gas shocks and sway bar, is what I want.

 

These guys with these "rare" parts - like 2x4's posis and moonroofs, seem to believe there is an unlimited demand for the rare stuff.  Not for me.

Also has the optional inverted air cleaner lid.  Good for another 5 HP and 3 dB of intake howl!  ;)

1968 in Independence, MO The guy says he's selling because he's hard up for cash; might be willing to deal. ?????

Needs center caps.  It appears that the side moldings are the self adhesive mylar chrome; easily removed.

And "new paint job and and glass windows"

Better not pull the optional mylar side moldings or the paint will come off just as the door jamb and trunk lid did.  LoL

Looks like rain - the Suzuki and house windows' got the tarps up.

For Sale: 1965 Riviera. The car is a GS but the LX 425 and dual quads are long gone. I believe the transmission and rear end are original. It has a 1965 LT (401) engine currently. 53000 actual miles. Clear PA title in my name. The interior is mostly there but in poor condition. Body is fairly solid with no significant or structural rust other than the front of the hood. It ran when I parked it 5 years or so ago and the clamshells worked. I have owned it since 2005, but have not personally seen the car in a few years. The car is at a friend's shop in Freedom, PA just outside of Pittsburgh. I am near Altoona.

It wasn't up long enough to expire so someone must have thought it was a good deal!

A member of my BCA club in the Raleigh, NC area is selling his 65 Riviera. 

 

See his Craigslist ad: https://raleigh.craigslist.org/cto/d/1965-buick-riviera/6424646247.html

 

I have not seen this car but I may be able to look at it if anyone is seriously interested in it. 20171210_141957.thumb.jpg.e3ac705f9f4f71009e60aad8855fc9ce.jpg20171210_142103.thumb.jpg.a8db87d883c68200aa8fcc65e006e88a.jpg

OK Riviera People: It's been a while since I pulled an engine out of a 65 Riv but I seem to remember that the engine might have to come out to really do a nice freeze plug job. Am I correct or has dementia set in?  Also....could the block be cracked???  DIAGNOSE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!    Mitch
