  2. Hey all, Does anyone have a preferred supplier of radiator for 1964 Riviera?
  3. This facility used to house our local city maintenance department, it's currently empty.
  4. Hope everyone is having a great weekend, here is my 1st 64 and my current. Such great cars!
  5. https://spokane.craigslist.org/cto/d/1964-buick-riviera/6580938989.html This is a solid project if anyone is looking. It's located about 10 mins from me, I can get better photos if anyone is interested.
  6. Have a good weekend all. Finally had the first shakedown run..minor tweaks needed, just glad to be part of the Riviera family.
  7. Thanks for the feedback fellas, I ended up finding one from David Jackson off of FB Buick Riviera Owners and Enthusiasts - Official ROA Facebook Group. Can't wait to get everything buttoned up.
  8. Hey all, I am trying to track down a source for 1964 Riviera brake reaction rods. The ones on my car are bent and the threads are shot. Any info is greatly appreciated. Does anyone know if these would work? http://www.globalwest.net/impala-caprice-adjustable-strut-rod-1965-1966-1967-1968-1969-1970-global-west.html# Zach
  9. Fresh lowering and front end rebuild. Brakes are up next. I am sorry to folks who like em stock..
  10. We had a short break from the snow, I took the car out for a little shakedown run. Ran into a buddy while out, can't wait for summer!
  11. I had two complete splits, one at the actuator side and one at the switch. Once I isolated both splits the switch worked correctly, this is what lead me to do the replacement.
  12. Are you speaking center of the mounting bracket on column actuator side to center of the bolt on the switch (bottom) of the column? If you're looking for the distance between the 2 loops on the wire it's 18.5", the switch has to be "tuned' of sorts per the manual.
  13. Hey all, I uncovered that my turn signal actuating cable housing was broken in two places not allowing for proper operation. I could manually move the switch and it would operate correctly. I pulled off the switch off the column and took it apart and cleaned all the years of grime off of it as well as cleaned the contacts inside. I came up with a fix that cost around $10. Went to my local hardware store and bought some 1mm (.039) wire. ($1.75) Went to a bike shop and bought some cable housing. (3' - $8.5) I built a very basic jig using a couple screws and a 3/16th drill bit. The screws were used to hold the excess wire while I wrapped the 3/16th drill bit a couple times to create the loop. You can see the factory one with the column bracket still on it. The image below both the factory and the new housing/cable are taped together and then I screwed them slightly to ensure that the other end column side was the exact same length. For reference.. Once I had both ends looped I carefully separated the factory crimps and place them on the new and reinstalled. I just got back from a shake down run and signals were operating as they were designed. Let me know if you have any questions..I'll do my best to assist via the internet if someone runs into this issue again..
  14. There is a little sag, my driveway also isn't level..so new suspension will be ordered soon. First order of business is to remove the blown out glass packs and get new exhaust run. Motor is tight, runs well, fires right up! Interior is so so, front covers need replacement. Package tray is also toast. The trunk has a couple holes I didn't see until I got it home.. kinda bummed about those. Overall everything works, just needs some TLC..
  15. Hey all, I had a 64 4-5 years ago..sold it..stupidly. Well, this time I wont make that mistake, I picked up another. She's a little rough but she has good bones. The paint is a re-spray, car was originally Surf Green, it does have some shine but outside water is shutoff until the snow is gone.. Thanks for looking!
  16. Hey all. I noticed today that my passenger side turn signal assembly has a bulb and harness for a cornering light..I pulled the driver side and didn't have bulb or harness. Is this a standard setup? Thanks
  17. Hey all, Hope everyone has made it through the winter. Over winter my '64 Rivi started leaking transmission fluid. It's a big enough leak for me to post about. I've looked online, and I'm a bit confused on what transmission is/might be sitting in there. Read it could be ST400, TH400...all this reading has got me confused.. Also, I'm seeking the best gasket and seal kit, so if anyone knows of a good source..wanna pass it my way? Thanks friends.
  18. I can appreciate it, as I know JF and I know he loves what he does..but I prefer the classic styling of the Riviera itself.
  19. I bought my 3" springs from OPG..fast delivery. I had a couple quotes out there..and it was hard to beat the price. I like the 3" drop in the rear, but I wished i would've gone with a 2" up front, as it has a slight rake.. Overall I'm happy with the ride, and the look.
  20. Custom Riv built by ‎Jf Launier first showing at Detroit Autorama...not sure how I feel about it.. https://scontent-a-sea.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ash3/t1/1912010_10152005545947817_552126559_n.jpg https://scontent-a-sea.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-prn2/t1/1926933_10152005546152817_1624907198_n.jpg https://scontent-b-sea.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-prn2/t1/1920362_10152005546627817_535852219_n.jpg
  21. This would be the correct air cleaner housing correct?
  22. http://spokane.craigslist.org/cto/4297510264.html Here's another one.
