  1. Now I can feel, what it was like with "radical design" back in the 1971.
  2. Thank you Steve, I got it from the States in 2010. From another ROA member ... but that was pure luck. I got from him via Ebay a rim for my boattail. Then we started the conversation. He mention that he thinks to sell his 65, I said I always wanted one - not knowing it is GS. Then he send me spec. with statement it is GS. I had to buy it :-).
  3. There are quite many Boattails here (I also have one from 71 πŸ™‚ ), but not many 1st gen Riviera. Very few 65 models, and I believe just one 65 GS ;-).
  4. Hi Bill, It is GranSport. You need also to know, that labor here in Poland (I mean working hour cost), is not that high as in the USA - so that also is changing the picture a bit.
  5. Thank you Guys again, your comments are important to me. I see some big names here, people that are Riviera knowledge masters. I know you only virtually, thanks to this forum and thanks to being ROA member. I feel emotional. Greetings from Poland, Europe to all of you
  6. Champagne mist was also considered in this project. What we did, we took from junky yard three fenders (today's cars) and we have painted them with Shell Beige (original color for that car), Champagne Mist and Sahara Mist. After family and neighbor discussion, Shell Beige was canceled and the decision was between Champagne or Sahara. Sahara won :-).
  7. Thanks David. That car left factory with Shell Beige, but we decided to paint it with Sahara Mist.
  8. Yes, pictures please ! And congrats πŸ™‚
  9. I was chatting with Paul some time ago regarding his console vinyl restoration. RIP Paul.
  10. That is the only thing I would be afraid of - the rubber could fall apart into smaller pieces and could reduce oil suction at the oil pick up tube.
  11. Thank you Ed, I missed it obviously.
  12. Well, my memory serves not that well anymore πŸ˜‰ . Good luck with getting it out !
  13. Is it so ? Then @riv2x4: I would need then one for remote release version....
  14. I assume we are talking about 400/430/455 engine ? Most likely it rests on the valley pan metal gasket and it will stay there. The metal gasket has the upward edges, that in my opinion will prevent further falling down of the grommet. You can also get endoscope camera for android telephone or tablet (they are quite cheap and surprisingly good), to locate the grommet through the hole it felt in - knowing the location maybe you could get it out with some copper wire, or with some other creative tricks πŸ˜‰ ? https://www.amazon.com/s?k=endoscope+camera+for+android&crid=PEWJCCPS27NM&sprefix=endoscope+camera%2Caps%2C251&ref=nb_sb_ss_i_1_16 I have one of those $20 price area and it is really good ! Look for the one with LED light integrated (I think all of them have it, but just double check)
  15. I will PM you delivery address. I am living in EU, so we can't meet at Chicago :-(. The address is the storage where I collect the parts for a common overseas shipping.
  16. I would also like to take one cardboard set for me. @riv2x4 - will you consider to ship it further to IL 60156, of course I will cover the costs ? @abandg - will you ship additional set (4 in total, I believe) ? I can do PayPal (preferred) or wire transfer.
  17. Try here https://www.dennysdriveshaft.com/ I got all what I need (including yoke) for my 71.
