  1. You may also want to check out the topic post on finding a inspection sheet behind the drivers side kick panel...
  2. Yeah, Thunderbirds are cool. I have been liking the 1971 form (alligator print vinyl top anyone?!), but frankly it is hard to beat the style and performance of the Riviera...as we know.

  4. Gorgeous 67. Excellent color. I am curious about the added rear turn signal and front reflector/turn signal. Did your dad add that for safety reasons? Thank you for connecting with the RoA forum to offer insight. That is really appreciated!
  5. These are not the best of photos to look at, but may give an idea. On a side note, make sure if someone ships you an older vehicle, that they tape down some of the chrome/stainless pieces. Notice the missing on the back window and front windshield is loose. It must have been a bumpy ride! PS: I like redlines on most GS, but I hear the redlines from DB are hard to get clean if dirtied...
  6. "hard to say... may be interior door handles...or door straps... '68 was a year of 3 different deluxe interior door panes" Darwin F. What type of door handle do you have on the inside.
  7. Darwin confirmed that the K30 is the RPO code for cruise control. Sounds like our new lingo for cruising. Time to K30!
  8. Just pulled mine out of the 68 Triple Black GS for the first day of Spring. It was a bit of a challenge because of the tight fit and sharp metal; oversized tweezers work the best I found. Laboratory grade, and not too big... Does anyone know what K30 "special sticker" signifies? Maybe special order or GS?

  9. Go to about 12:20 on this video. Shows where he found inspection sheet. Thank you Aqua Zef!
  10. I know it is inconsistent, yet have we had an article in the riview or a post here on the best place to find a build sheet per Riviera year? It could be interesting.
  11. I noticed the same thing with the color, yet the paint almost looks gold (metallic) and the green is darker so probably just didn't get it right. It shows ZZ (Riviera Silver Green)There are more pages to the appraisal... It does look like it came with a posi from factory, which is cool.
  12. Here are the details passed on to me of the 1966 Riviera being sold to contribute to a charity (shown in the recent Riview). "Obviously, the intention of the owner was to help us as we serve people in various countries around the world. We do medivac flights and angel flights, provide medical and dental clinics, build wells, teach reading classes and provide many other services to the local people in remote, undeveloped regions of the world. Please take a look at our website (flyawa.org) where you will see examples of the humanitarian work that we do. I share this informati
  13. Its funny. I just googled what color people with color blindness prefer most to see if there had been any research on trends to test my mango tango theory...because we all know google is always right. They often like bright yellows most!
