  3. thanks all for info ,car runs great and gets plenty of thumbs up,been going to shows for 12 years and i have never seen another 63 ,64s and 65s once in a while but love my riv.
  4. nothing in oil car runs 160-170 normally never overheated again ,is 190 or so normal in heavy traffic i go to a lot of shows with lots of cars so exiting sometimes takes awhile to get out
  5. my 63 riv,bought 12 years ago for 5000 dollars before prices went up no 1 nada classic car guide is now 41000 and average car is 22000. bought car as shown about 3 miles from my house have won over 80 trophies and awards since owned not bad for 5 grand.also now have correct wrinkle air cleaner bought on ebay restored for 125. thanks for looking
  6. went to a big car show a few years ago took 2-3 hours to get out ,car ran with hot light on and gauge pegged at 260 but car never pounded,boiled over or gurgled.started next day and lifters made noise for about 10 minutes,changed oil and added can of restore and car ran and still runs fine. added electric fan and transmission cooler.car now runs 190-195 in heavy traffic before fan kicks in.question is how hot should it run when idling or in slow traffic for a long time. thanks bob
