  1. Look for a local auto parts store that still has books. Most chain stores don't know how to find parts if they aren't on their computer. Kevin
  2. After Ken first posted pictures of his tire failure I checked the dates on my 1961 pickup. They were 12 years old so I replaced them. The new tires ride smooth and peace of mind with new tires was worth it. Kevin
  3. When I was at Gettysburg I talked with Gene Guarnere about right side mirrors and he showed me a Riviera there that had a right side mirror that was slightly larger that would work better. He thought it was a Pontiac item.
  4. My right side mirror is mounted forward to match the driver's side. It looks nice but is useless. I think the only way you could see anything would be if it was mounted on the fender and that would look terrible.
  5. I forgot that you have air. Like Tom said your condenser would be damaged first so the screen would not help. Kevin
  6. Bob, you got me thinking it might be a good time to put a screen in front of the radiator to stop big bugs a debris out. Kevin
  7. I would go with repairing your current radiator. It's easy to damage a radiator when working under the hood by dropping something or leaning on it. The good thing with a brass radiator is it's easy to get repaired. I don't know if aluminum radiators can be fixed as easy.
  8. We can all see the reason Buick never made a more door Riviera. Kevin
  9. Good information. I was not aware of the difference between '63 and '65 on this trim. Kevin
  10. Try Gene Guarnere. His number is in the Riview. He had them made of steel. Kevin
  11. I have Toyo tires on my '63 and have the same brown staining problem. Lacquer thinner will cut it but would not recommend using it. Kevin
  12. Thanks Bob. I got my emblems today. Fit good and look great . Kevin
  13. Your cables may have been hooked up in the wrong location. They are color coded but with time the color may be gone. I have had mine off several times and the last time I got the cables wrong and was difficult to adjust rite. Thru trial and error I figured it out. Kevin
  14. People get confused when they find the chrome under the paint but to plate just the edge would be costly. Faster and cheaper to chrome the whole grill and paint after. Kevin
  15. The most desirable car should be the one you own or you bought the wrong car. When I bought my '63 I was looking for a '65 but now I'm glad I did.
