  1. Thanks guys! The console is out of the car as we are replacing the carpeting so I will most likely take to paint jobber and see what they can do. Thanks again for your thoughts. 🙂
  2. Looking for a source for paint to touch-up a few scratches on my console. It has the green 610 Cloth interior. Thanks for your reply.
  3. Thanks John for your response! I did see that I could reverse the front u-brackets and also noticed the small hole on the rear but did not notice it lines up perfectly with the hole in the floor. Thanks for confirming that it does. If you drill the hole to 7/16" I assume that will be big enough to use the original bolts? Thanks. Walt T.
  4. I am a member of ROA and have a 64 Riv. I am wondering if the seats could be adjusted slightly back to give more leg room. I have the 4 way seat on drivers side. I have looked through the body manual but can't find anything. I looked through this forum and find others wishing they could do this, but no solution. Is there a way to do this without modifying the track or brackets? Thanks!

  7. Great Ideas guys! It allows those locations to be more useful for our modern day. Thanks for responding!
  8. I need to replace my corroded cigarette/cigar lighter for my 1964 Riviera for both the front and rear lighters. What is the correct replacement - A Rochester or Casco? I want to replace all the parts so I would also need the correct element too. Thank you!
  9. Thanks very much KongaMan! This gives me a place to start. But one thing, is it OK that the rubber adapters used in the control heads can be bypassed and the vacuum lines plugged directly into them?
  10. Hello fellow lovers of Rivieras, I am hoping someone may be able to point me in the right direction as I try to figure out why neither of the dual stage vacuum diaphragms on my 64 Riviera do much, if anything! Here are things to note: I know it seems simple that there may be a lack of vacuum, but I have tested the storage "ball" in the engine compartment and it is keeping a strong solid vacuum. I have then tested the control head connections for both the Heater and A/C and they seem to be getting vacuum although I did not record the PSI. But when testing them back at th
