  1. Jim Cannon wrote a article about mid year changes in 1963 for the Riview. It tells us there was a change in mirror location. My car has the later forward location and the passenger was mounted to match. If I had the earlier location, I might have better visibility. At this point I don't want to make new holes to move the mirror. Kevin
  2. My mirror is mounted like the one's in your picture. It's a remote mirror. I can't see anything unless I lean way over. That's why I said it's useless
  3. I have a right side mirror on my '63. It's a remote mirror, looks nice from the outside, but useless. Even if I stuck a convex mirror on it , I still would not be able to see anything. It was on the car when I bought it. It's just eye candy, serves no purpose.
  4. Thank you for sharing. I was going to wait till spring to replace the tires on my 1961 pickup. New tires are going on tomorrow. They are 14 years old. Kevin
  5. Looks good. I noticed your fan shroud is like mine. Don't see many like that.
  6. I have one '63 wire hubcap that has a emblem like the one pictured on the right. The spinner is held on with 3 screws. What I thought was odd is the spokes were aluminum not stainless.
  7. It's a test to see who reads the label.
  8. Well said Winston. I added oil pressure and water temp gauges and made sure the lights still work.
  9. Bob, I have been following your progress on your '63. When I get to Gettysburg I will look for the red Riviera with frosted windows. Kevin
  10. I just changed the rubber line on my '63. I used a 1/4" drive ratchet and socket to loosen the clamp. You can loosen the screw on the clamp enough to get the hose out. Like Ed said, don't take the screw all the way out.
  11. I saw your boat tail at Overland Park. What a great car. How many Rivieria's do you have?
