  1. Hello Riviera Friends. I cannot find the phone number for Raner's Riviera Ranch in Colorado - tried google, facebook, etc. Any info will be appreciated! David Baker #14360 ROA
  2. Hello Riv Lovers! I am looking for a right hand mirror for my 71 Riv. I ordered one which looks correct, was supposed to fit the car, and it isn't correct. Information on any sources or Mirrors for sale will be appreciated. David Baker ROA 14360
  3. Thanks to you all for your helpful replies! I did locate a Buick Right Hand mirror which matches the left - the only difference is that I will have to add some black paint in the small outer trim groove.
  4. Hello Riv lovers. I am trying to find a right hand mirror for my 71 Riviera. ( I cannot find any information to indicate if this was an available factory option) Any suggestions on a right hand Riviera or Buick Mirror that will match (or come close) the left mirror? Thanks David Baker #14360 ROA
  5. Great. Can you tell me the model number - they offer several that say they fit the car, but they have different bolt patterns. Thanks. Or send me a photo of the starter/bolt pattern. Thanks.
  6. Good advice - supposedly two mechanics have already done that, but the third one will do it for sure`!
  7. It's a long story. Last year the starter performed perfectly - but on rare occasion, when it was really hot outside and the engine was hot, the starter would not re-engage until the car sat and cooled off. So I had the starter rebuilt. When the starter came back, it had a new new problem - it would crank too slow to start it (a new battery was installed at the same time) - but if you turned the key off for a minute, it would then crank normally and start. So, I took it to a different shop who took the starter off and sent it back to the shop who rebuilt the starter - they checked it and bench tested it and stated that it performed perfectly. So the mechanic reassembled the car and could not find the problem. I drove the car for 6 months in that condition. Now, the starter will barely crank and the car will not start. The car has a full electrical charge and this condition repeats even with a charger/starter on to boost it. I have been told that it could be an electrical problem which needs to be traced down; so the next shop that will look at it to trace down these problems. But if it is the starter, I do want to replace it rather than have it rebuilt again - that is why I am seeking advice. Thanks.
  8. Hello everyone! I am in need of a remanufactured or new starter that will fit my 65 Riviera with the 401 engine. Rebuilding my started was not successful. I have found several starters on line that state they fit this engine, but the bolt attachment patterns are all different. The starter is still on the car - so I cannot compare visually until the car is towed to the repair shop. Your help is appreciated! David Baker #14360

  10. Hi and thanks! The 65 is Turquoise Mist; The 66 is Aqua Mist. They are nearly identical in color - but the 66 is just a bit more blue in it. Thanks for your inquiry!
  11. I am interested in installing an aftermarket temperature gauge/cellphone powersource kit in my 71 Riviera (non bucket interior) slide out ashtray unit. Has anyone found a unit compatible with the size of this ashtray? Thanks. David Baker #14360 65 Riv, 66 Riv, 71 Riv
