  1. It was a "local parts " store that specializes in car parts for later model cars . It was not the O'Reilleys Napa type store. I think I have a couple pieces left and will try and dig it out . I may be wrong but believe it might have bee a 3M brand . I know it came in a variety of widths and a roll of 25 ft with self adhesive back which I "supplemented " with glue. I fashiond the ends with a Dremel . So far it's holding but never exposed to rain or seven weather . KReed ROA 14549
  2. Hi Matt - don’t let the Hemmings guys get you down . I follow your beautiful website regularly and am now lusting after that gorgeous 1940 Buick 56C silver gray convertible with red leather . That color combo is my all time favorite as you can see below on my 64 Vette and 72 Riv . Talking “gently “ with the boss (Lori) to convince her I much I need ( believe that is the correct word) another car 😀 -touch and go at the moment ! Would fit right into my garage . One can only hope! KReed ROA 14549
  3. Thanks - Midnight Blue F-29 code 250 HP ☹️! From 455 CI - But get it up to 70 mph ( about 20 seconds 🙄) and it will put you to sleep LOL KReed ROA 14549
  4. Hi Greg it' s all in the eye of the beholder . Personally, I prefer it as I think it breaks up color on a very large car plus it's original for the car . I have seen some modified boattails , however , that look mighty good without it . Do what you like not what someone else might like . Here's a pic of my 72 and 73 with the side trim and I love the look . KReed ROA 14549 PS I had to pay $300'to get a 3 inch piece at the rear for my 72 when the replating/polishing shop lost it and a guy made me buy the whole quarter panel piece to get the small piece ! BTW , your trim pieces can me made to look like new in the rights hands and some $$$ as they charge by the inch.
  5. That’s a gorgeous 67 ! Color combo is killer . Hope it wins . KReed ROA 14549
  6. I am sorting out a bunch of miscellaneous parts and found this pair of brackets that for the life of me cannot figure what they are or where they go . I think they came off a first generation Riviera . Any help would be appreciated . kReed ROA 14549
  7. Yes I do have some nice sets available . PM me and we will talk shipping . Thanks KReed ROA 14549
  8. Hi Bill -I’ll take it . Will fit in my shop perfectly . Let’s talk details tonight . Ken Reed
  9. Good evening all, I am potentially interested in a 1968 Riviera currently listed on EBay that is located in Fishers , IN ( suburb of Indianopils ,IN, ) if anyone is close and could potentially look ago the car for me in the next 3-5 days , I would appreciate a PM to discuss. Thanks much . KReed ROA 14549
  10. It's funny that this topic comes up now as I have a couple deals pending for a one owner 63 Lesabre convertible ( rose mist poly ) and a one owner 1970'Toronado ( regency rose). Not sure either will come to fruition as owners are pretty proud of them. Personally I love the color girlish or not ! I do favor the white top on both rather than black but that 70 Riviera but it is a very striking car . KReed ROA 14549
  11. That is beautiful ! Great job Jan and Bob . KReed ROA 14549
  12. Got multiple pics from the owner of the GS and parts cars above if anybody wants them, drop me an email - . LOTS of work and $$$$$ needed to save that one . KReed ROA 14549
  13. The rubber will definitely soften with time. Mine took about a year but door use was relatively infrequent . Let it alone - it will be fine . KReed ROA 14549
  14. Nope - clear packing tape used to wrap them up when I Shipped them back with my car from Houston so they wouldn't rattle around in the haulers trailer . KReed ROA 14549
  15. I was fortunate to run across a small hoard of first generation parts a few months ago and bought 7 sets of the 8 PC rivier rocker panel trim for a 65 Riviera. They are in good shape but need to be cleaned up and painted . They have no major damage , Just dirt and cobwebs from sitting for 39 years in a building .. Offering fIrst to ROA members and then putting on EBay . Price to ROA members is $750 plus shipping . Price on EBay will be $900 plus shipping . Not cheap but As you know these are tough to find in good condition . PM if interested . Will also have a few other thing to list later when I get them sorted out. Thanks Ken KReed ROA 14549
