  1. For sale is the driver's side lower windshield stainless reveal trim molding for the 1963, 1964 and 1965 Buick Riviera. This is an excellent piece that is dent free, cleaned and polished to a very nice shine. The hard work is all done for you. All you have to do is mount it on your car. $40.00 plus shipping. PM me if interested. Thanks. Bill
  2. Jim, You should be able to get plastic auto interior push pins at a local auto parts store. I remember getting some years ago. If not, I'm sure you can get them online. I have only seen them in black. Whether there are colors I do not know. I know a fellow forum member that is doing a beautiful resto mod of a 1963. When he did his trim pieces he used stainless screws in some areas. The push pins can be problematic installing and removing. I will be installing the trim pieces on my car at some point. I think I will go the stainless screw route for ease of installation and removal. I
  3. John, That "mystery" piece comes into view when the back of the seat tilts up. When the seat tilts up the outer trim pieces on the left and right move with the seat revealing the inner pieces which are stationary. Once you get your seat moving up and down you will see this. Bill
  4. Thanks to you both for responding. Rock Auto does not list a wiper motor for the first Generation Riviera but, Turbinator found a listing for me on StockWise Auto for a remanufactured wiper motor for the 1963 & 1964 Riviera. It is from A1 Cardone and is the same number (40-112) and motor for those 2 years. It does not list that motor for the 1965 even if you do a separate search for the 1965. There must have been some sort of change for 1965. Bill
  5. Is the leading edge chrome on the first generation Riviera's able to be used on the window on either side? It appears that the chrome would be reversible and all you would have to do is put in the rubber edge that is appropriate for that side of the car. I am pretty sure that my next 2 questions may have been discussed but, when I do a search I come up with nothing. I want to replace the chrome on my driver's side window as it somehow got badly scratched. What is the preferred/safe method to remove the old chrome? What adhesive should one use to attach the replacement chrome to the
  6. I am having to replace the windshield motor in my 63. I have purchased a good motor out of a 64. Are the motors interchangeable between the the 63, 64 and 65 years? Regardless of which motor I do use I will want to replace the motor to firewall gasket and the motor grommets. I see that OPGI has both listed for the 63-65 Riviera. The part numbers they have listed are also sold by some other vendors. Has anyone purchased these items and if so, where did you purchase them from? Thanks for any help you can give. Bill
