  1. Ed, This forum is intended to bring all Gran Sport and GS Buicks together. No matter it being a Skylark based, Wildcat based or Riviera based car. It is something I had hoped to accomplish at my original website , 65GS.com, but was not getting the interest I desired from other year and model Gran Sport/ GS enthusiasts . Peter suggested to me that we take this step and so here we are. We have a unique and special model of Buicks. Lets see if we can learn more about the other and enjoy some new friendships. When the 65 Gran Sport division was established, I feel I made
  2. Hey Elvin, I have been talking with Northstar plating. I have an NOS front bumper that I have made a tracing of , taken measurements and photographs of for them. Hopefully this will help them. Loren

  4. Don't feel bad Elvin, I've been playing with '65s for over 35 years and still learn things about them. Loren
  5. Do you know if the rocker arms are original Buick or another brand? I ask, because a friend had the same thing happen. The rocker arms that were used were not originals, but a replacement brand. Loren
  6. Elvin, A '64 front bumper will not fit on your '65. The center goes down on a '64 while the ends go up higher then a '65 . The rear bumpers do interchange, but not the fronts. Loren
  7. Thank you Peter! I really hope this new forum becomes the spot for all those interested in the Gran Sport and GS cars built by Buick. Loren
  8. Andrew, You are welcome. Another possibility might be Carmen Faso. I know he has first gen parts . His phone number is 716-693-4090. Good luck, Loren
  9. Here in SE Nebraska we haven't had a frost yet, but those darn little rodents are already making their way into the outbuilding. Other than entertainment for cats and food for the red tail hawks , I think mice don't have any other redeeming qualities. lol Loren
  10. Hi Boyce, You should have received an email that has a link you need to go to in order to finish registration. Check your spam and trash. It is possible that the email could have landed in one of those, depending upon your computer settings. Loren
  11. The retractor assembly is common to all Buick models for '65. As are the chrome buckle assembly. The Riviera used the same seat belt assemblies as a Skylark with the exception that the Riviera retractor sat on a special stamped steel adaptor to fit the inside door sill shape of the Riviera. It also had a separate plastic cover for that adaptor piece. The plastic cover for the retractor is re- popped in black only. All the chrome hardware pieces are also re-popped. So the difficult part to come up with would be the special adaptor plate and the plastic cover for it. Snake oil can r
  12. The third from top is sold. Knobs can be removed with a little heat for use on a different metal lever.
  13. Just wondering why topics can not be removed by the person that has posted it. It would be convenient to be able to remove a topic when items in a "for sale" topic changed or item is sold. Just asking, Loren
  14. Doors are fairly easy to come by as both hardtop and convertible used the same doors. Also '64 and '65 doors interchange. There is a small difference between the doors in the way the outside lock cylinder is secured. Quarter panels on the other hand, not so easy and the panels available on the aftermarket are ok, at best. With some massaging the aftermarket panel will work to repair the usual rust area. Good luck on your hunt, Loren
  15. Hello Tom, I got the message and sent a reply. I will get it packaged and a total cost for you. Thanks, Loren
  16. Trumpet horn #898 for '64 Riviera. Nice original condition horn. Tested and works well. $125 plus shipping Thanks for looking, Loren
  17. Thank you Steve. Payment received and it will be on the way today. Loren
  18. Here are pictures of the '64 grille [top picture] and the '65 grille [lower picture]. Loren
  19. I have never looked for a part number cast into one. I will have to take a look at one of the three extra ones around here. Physically they are totally different on the bottom ends. The '64 comes up at the bottom end to meet the headlight door and the '65 drops down to meet the headlight door. Loren
