  1. Chris, Welcome! Be sure to post some pics of your Riviera in the Pictures of Your Car section.
  2. Congratulations on your new present! You have a great looking Riviera and family. Welcome to the forum. You have found the right place to have your Riviera questions answered. Two recommendations: 1) If you have not already done so, please consider joining the Riviera Owners Association. Go to to find the membership link. Membership is not a requirement to participate in the forum but membership definitely has its advantages (to quote an old advertisement). The site has a wealth of Riviera information available only to paid members. 2) Feel free to learn how to search for information in this forum and others using the Search feature. Many of your upcoming questions have probably already been asked and discussed at length. If you can't find what you are looking for, post a question with supporting photographs.
  3. All of the discussion about AC control wires has reminded me that I need to find a replacement cable/wire for my Riv. I need the red tabbed control wire for the temperature control wheel on my HVAC controls. GM part number is 1385086. I believe the cable is 33" long but I can't swear to that without removing mine from the car. The red plastic hold down tab on my cable/wire is broken resulting in the wire not having enough tension to rotate the heat control switch on top of the heater core box. I have to turn the heat control wheel where I want it then get out of the car and manually rotate the box switch to the desired position. The control wheel switch will close the box switch though. Taking the HVAC controls out of the dash is such a PITA on a 68 that I only want to perform this operation once more then I want to be DONE with it! If any one has a source for replacement cables/wires or has a serviceable one on hand that I can purchase, please let me know. I know this has been discussed before but I could not find the thread with the recommended vendor(s).
  4. Do you still have any of these cables? Do you have the GM part number?
  5. Currently the weather forecast for Gettysburg PA during the Meet is scattered thunderstorms. I am bringing my waterproof car cover!
  6. Does anyone need a very good condition 1968 Riviera standard hubcap center medallion? Just the medallion, not the whole hubcap. Part number 1383005. I just picked up a really nice driver quality one. It has no cracks or chips in the plastic bit there is some slight flaking of the chrome on some of the ribs. The R logo is perfect. The exterior surface shows minimal effects of 50 years of service. $55.00 plus free shipping. PM me if interested.
  7. My wife and I will be arriving on Friday the 21st to attend the Mason Dixon Chapter of the BCA All Buick car show in Hershey on the 22nd. We will be staying at the meet hotel for the entire 8 days. My wife's birthday is on the 22nd so I gotta make sure she is entertained and happy too.
  8. Wow, this must have been a great opportunity to take plenty of reference photos! You don't often get to see this stage of restoration displayed in public!
  9. I sent a message to the seller via the listing suggesting he correct his listing title.
  10. I had to chuckle at this topic title. I hope you find a shop that meets your needs.
