  1. Get in contact with Tim Sweeley at Tim is located in Sacramento, CA and typically has what folks are looking for.
  2. If you haven't already, check with Tim at Tim's got tons of stuff or might know of someone as well.
  3. 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
  4. Thank you all for the replies. Knew I could count on you. Yes, it is the chrome trim piece that I need to attach to the rear quarter window. I have new rubbers already fit to the chrome trim. Just tired of the chrome pieces popping off if i try to roll the window down. :-)
  5. I know this has been discussed on here before and did search but can not find the topics. What is the best way (proper way) to secure the trim piece to the leading edge of the rear side window?
  6. Dang, not one response. I was hoping someone would reply back to this because I just got my new kick panels from Clark's today and wanted to know the exact same thing.
  7. I just replaced my dark green carpet in my 65 with Clark's cut/sewn and love it. Definitely agree to get samples first as I will now be replacing the carpet on my door panels and kick plates as well. Luckily Clark's includes enough extra with their cut/sewn package to do just that. Previous owner had put down a molded dark green loop that was definitely a different shade so redoing it all.
  8. You can also check with Tim Sweeley at Rivi Central. He's here in Sacramento. He has tons of parts available and ships pretty much anywhere. Check him out at
  9. Talljohn, Spoke to Bruce this morning. Nice guy. $75 per panel with my carpeting and I'll be good to go. Thanks for the info. Said it's a small job so he'll need to work it in between his larger projects but I'm in no rush so it's all good. Says he remembers your seats because, and I quote... "those first gen riviera seats are a PITA to work on.
  10. If I was starting from scratch I would definitely go to Clark's. My door panels were completely redone right before I purchased the car about 5 years ago. Problem is that I replaced all of my carpeting (heater core failure) with cut & sewn from Clark's so now the carpeting on the lower half of the door panels does not match with what I just installed. It's a different shade of green and is a shorter loop. Clark's cut & sewn included extra carpeting for kick plates and door panels so I have what I need, just need a shop to take all the stitching out of the existing door panels, remove the existing carpet, and replace with my Clark's cut & sewn so they all matchy matchy. Still need to order my kick plates from Clark's as well but that's next month. :-)
  11. I find myself with an assortment of parts that I do not need. Most of the parts came off an center console I picked up for parts with the exception of the antenna. It is off of my 65 and was in the trunk when I bought the car. I believe the console pieces are from a 63. If you see anything that you want or need please let me know and make me an offer. I honestly have no idea what these are worth so don't even know what to ask for them. They are sitting in my garage and need a new home.
  12. Looking for references for a reputable auto upholstery shop in the Sacramento, CA area. Need some door panels redone. Any help appreciated.
  13. I can't comment on how far back the steel wheels go but there is a guy here in the Sacramento, CA area that may have the 63 and 64 steel wheels if your friends are wanting to buy some. His name is Tim Sweeley and he runs a business called Rivi Central. You can find his contact info at or on FB at Tim is a great guy to do business with. I have purchased many items from him over the years. I just bought 5 steel wheels for my 65 from him earlier this year for under $200 for all 5.
