  1. Tom, Very nice, I love the blue. Looks like a good deal on a car that doesn't need anything. What a concept! When you say Gran Sport hubcaps, are you referring to the turbine wheel covers? Jim
  2. Dual carbs, manifold and air cleaner, with nut on Facebook. Nor sure if carbs are correct. $1200 + $200 shipping. Seems like a decent deal. https://www.facebook.com/groups/BuickRivieraCarsandPartsforSale
  3. Violet '66 GS sold for $25,300. Not sure if this link will show the price. You have to sign up on their website to see the auction results. 1966 Buick Riviera GS | K64 | Kissimmee 2021 (mecum.com)
  4. You could do a search for the front end information in this forum, it's up at the upper right of your page. Or just scroll down through the posts, there were some recent ones on suspension for the first-gen Rivs. Tom Telesco (telriv) is a good person to start with on suspension information. Nice looking car. Good luck! Jim
  5. Does anyone have the same diagram for a '65? My vacuum hoses are a mess! Jim
  6. Those hoses should run from the heater core around the back and side of the carburetor to the front of the engine. I've dealt with this several times on my '63 and '65, it's a pain in the ass. It should be laying down by the heater core, not up like yours seems to be. For reliability, the worm gear clamps should be used also, not the spring type. Look at some pictures on the internet to get an idea of the routing.

    These are working fine for me at 4:22 CST. Are these the ones you are referring to? https://www.facebook.com/groups/BuickRivieraCarsandPartsforSale https://www.facebook.com/groups/BuickRivieraOwners Jim
  8. Will these work for you? I got these in a deal with some other parts. Not sure what year or purpose they are for. If someone knows what these are for, please let me know. These are 2.72" diameter, .178" thick. They come with a double sided adhesive disc. 3 are in the original unopened packaging. 1 is as new, but has been removed from the packaging. 1 has a very slight blemish. All 5 for $25 plus shipping. If anyone is interested, message me and I'll send more pictures. Jim
  9. Bill, Looks great. Did you glue the vinyl on? Did you ever get an answer from your original post as to what those other 2 pieces are? Jim
  10. Tom, I just ordered the last repro one from Gene for my '65. Not sure if he's getting more or not. Here's a picture of a '65 courtesy of Bill Mawbey. Is there a supplier for the push pins that secure the bracket? Jim
  11. Hello. I'm surprised no one has chimed in on this yet. I know the '63-'65's better, but in '69, verde green would have been "M" paint code. My '65 has "S2" on it for paint code. So it was originally "S" - Sahara Mist and the "2" means it has a vinyl top. Might be a good idea to post a picture of your data plate, that would help. See picture for my data plate. Jim
  12. Not sure how long ago Gene Winfield did this '63. He's a legend in the industry (93 years old), but I'm not a fan of this car. I get dizzy if I look at the seats too long! The ad does not give much info on the car itself. https://www.ebay.com/itm/1963-Buick-Riviera-by-Gene-Winfield/333739894065?hash=item4db472a531:g:Oy0AAOSwRylfdeZP&vxp=mtr
  13. Hello all, This booster was installed on my '55 Chrysler 300. I'm trying to identify it so I can sell it. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks, Jim
  14. Hello, Will this take the place of the Ammco brake gauge model #1750? Will your tool work on my '55 Chrysler 300? If it works on your '53, it'll probably work on mine. Thanks, Jim
