                   Those with 65's might want to go with the one in post #1 as most 65's came with the "custom built for" message.

All the 63's and 64's I've seen say "built expressly for", like the one in the last post.

Though technically not correct for a 68 I have been thinking about having one made for The Aqua Zephyr. I am not sure where I would place it though, since I don't have a center console. Maybe on my seat cup holder console? :D

Sir, I am certain where you place a Custom Built For or Expressly Built For Riviera plaque it will look good.

The Blue Zephyr is fine looking automobile.

I’m rebuilding another car. It’s a silver ‘65 GS. But I’ve dedicated it to the real genius that made it all possible

Rivdrvn, Best choice. Nothing like having what you want how you want it. I play guitar and the instrument has to be set up the way I want. At this stage of the game it is not too much to have what you want as long as it is affordable.

I've traded emails with these fine folks already and they are making both the 63-64 "built expressly for" and the 65 "custom built for" versions

I don’t know what it takes to tool up for projects like this. At a price of $60 a plaque I’m guessing the tooling is pretty steep. Thx for offering the service 👍🏼

 

But Bob @ Scanlan Veneer, where I bought my walnut wood door inserts, has been making/selling these for years…at the same price of $20 like mentioned in post #1

I would sure want a more famous name than mine on a plaque like that.

 

And I would probably ask for a misspelling. Like "Bill Mitchel" < "Um, there's a problem here." "What the L."

Bernie, seems like a spelling problem for a hybrid animal like the elephant and rhino aka elephino.

Engraving equipment is expensive. The metal plates are a measurable cost. Making the plaque by hand and then engraving takes time. Customers have a choice with the metal and laminated plastic from several sources. When customers have choices from several suppliers quality and service will improve. It is all in fun. Thank you for adding the good information.

Hey Everyone,

 

I am the one making them for 60$

 

I have 2 versions, "Built Expressly For" and "Custom Built For"

 

Even making a "Custom Built By" for a few special people.

 

I am engraving your name at no extra charge, as well as shipping them for free. (USA)

 

Yes the equipment is very very expensive... Not to mention the countless hours I spent programing it.

I have seen a lot of cheap butchered copies, and it makes me cringe...

 

I also chose to use a little different more expensive material, that will last forever.

 

I manufacture things for a living, and only put my names on things I am proud of. I wouldn't sell anything I wouldn't use on my own car. 

 

At the end of the day I make a few bucks that I can put back into my riviera...

 

If you have any questions, concerns, or just want to talk rivieras, feel free to email me at riviwood65@gmail.com or call 714-599-0719

 

Rupert...

 

I have attached a picture of one of my prototypes

You will have a great product people will want to buy.

The Metal was the original material used for the plaques in the Rivieras.

Best of luck in your endeavors.
