  1. I see that CARS is now carrying a cardboard type package tray which I believe is a newer addition to their product line? Has anyone bought one? Please let us know if you did and how the quality was. I forget the price but you can see it on the CARS catalogue site.

  2. Hi Jan

    I always have thought the first gen experts said the shelf was made of cardboard. I have to redo mine also as it is covered by a poor looking vinyl cover. Once it warms up here I will pull it out. Hopefully under the vinyl what is there is salvageable.

    Only the little jet twists out I believe. The whole nozzle piece is held by a clip from underneath. Check shop manual it may show it or check other threads on same subject as I know there are lots of them.

    PS Let me know if you find any spare clips for trunk cardboard or 64 glove box book.

  4. Joey any good quality body seam sealer which comes in a caulking tube will do. 3M is good quality and any good body shop supplier should carry it. I have always heard from our more expert Riv specialists that the best way to go is to get your orig heater core recored. A reputable rad shop should be able to tell you if its rebuildable and if not they should have a source for a replacement.

    Best of Luck!!!!

  5. Hello Everyone,

    I need to replace the washer pump on my 64 Riv. Can anyone suggest where to get one that is correct and maybe a part #. I dont want to get everything apart only to find that the part is not the right one. I also need one winshield washer jet assembly if anyone has a spare.

    Regards,

  6. Glenn,

    Here are some pictures I took at the Eurkea Springs meet in 2005. Four Silver cars each with a different color interior. It looks as if the dash pad and parcel shelf were the same color as the seats. Hard to tell from these pictures, except for the silver w/ red car. When Bill Mitchell built the Silver Arrow cars, they all had silver interior with silver dash and parcel shelves. Although I think the silver / silver car has a black dash and perhaps a black parcel shelf.

    I think the parcel shelf comew out by removing three screws along the rear under the window and the trim pieces along the sides. I think it just sits on the radio speaker grill. It's been a while so I'm not 100% sure about this.

    Thanks Ed,

    I think on my car the dash is black and the parcel shelf right now is covered in black vinyl. When it warms up here I will remove the shelf and see if it is silver or black underneath. I also imagine it will need to be replaced and I have seen suppliers on the Net.

    Once again thanks for your help!

  7. Hi Dan,

    As you will discover it is sometimes unbelievable what people do to cars. In most cases we collectors would be happy if they had left things alone. In time I hope everything will fall into place for you. You just persevere and eventually hope you get the car where you want it. As you have said drive it and have fun!

  8. Hi Chuck,

    I am in the process of detailing the trunk on my 64 also. I thought the cardboard goes in the colour it is which is a light grey. I also need the wing nut for the tire hold down and I dont know if there is any type of washer that goes with this. I also didn't realize that the jack had that spring loaded clip pc to hold it down. You will probably have to try and find one off a parts car. Lots of ads in Riview of guys parting out cars.

    Good luck and I will let you know when I find one.

    Regards,

  9. Hello All,

    Have purchased 1964 Riviera and have lots of detailing to do. I believe the correct hose clamps should be the "tower type". Does anyone have a list of what quantity and sizes are needed for a 425 -4 engine. Also any good source to buy them.

    Thanks,

  10. :DHi Everyone,

    Just wondering if all parts for the jack and tire iron were painted semi gloss black? Also the post part of the jack was it painted or plated? What would the spare tire size be using todays modern numbers? Rim for spare semi gloss black also?

    Regards,

  11. Hello All,

    I have a 64 Riviera with a non stock steering wheel. I would like to reinstall a stock one. The interior is silver. Did the steering wheel come matched to the interior color? If I find another color can the wheel be painted to match?

    Regards,

    Glenn
