  1. will def do - motor doesnt work at mo but i can get that rebuilt over here if needed. I'll check out your tutorial when imove on to the lights....im assuming its on the Riv web site? Cheers Kev
  2. there's also a corner cut out of the pad above the A/C for some reason - also original? i'll measure the hole when i get back to the garage during the week...do you know what the purpose was? Cheers Kev
  3. Many thanks...ive attached a few pics ...i must admit its not quite as shiny and new looking in the flesh! But fundamentally it seems a very solid original car...been standing more less for 10 years in storage, so currently working on bringing it back to life..... Cheers Kev
  4. Hi All Thanks for your responses and kind comments ...I've attached a copy of the invoice and data plate to confirm the colour/special order status.....i'm thinking aloud about how many 'special paint' cars from 1965 are still up and running now? I guess a hard question to answer, unless you guys know any ...since posting on this forum my research via the owners club web site shows (i believe) that in 1965 only 90 special paint cars were produced which is a very small number to begin with.. Maybe i should ask the question via the owners club mag and see what happens... Interesting stuff! Cheers Kev (London, England)
  5. ..the double whitewall is the spare - the shipping company managed to bust the single whitewall that was on it - however that has now been repaired and will be going back on...miles 85000...
  6. Many thanks Tom - you see in my pic the number five in chalk...is this significant of being something from the factory? Cheers Kev
  7. Hi All I have a 65 painted as detailed on original invoice as a 'special order' Aleutian Gray - i think a Cadillac colour. Does anyone else here have a special order paint job or know anything about numbers back in the day? Also what would qualify a customer to ask for and get such a service? Cant inmagibne it was an easy thing to get.... All the best Kev
  8. Hi All I've got a 3 piece insulation kit for the hood of my 65.. However there is a 4th section of the hood...doesn't seem room to insert a piece of insulation, even if it was in the kit.. So my question is what would have been there back in the day? Or would it have been painted ..i've attached a pic of my hood showing the area in question.. Thanks in advance Kev
  9. Hi all I want to install a dual master cylinder on my 65 - i hear that installing one from a 67 is easiest method. Does anyone have any experience and tips? Vacuum power unit is a Bendix... All the best Kev
  10. Hi All Hopefully you can help with my 65 - I have a flexible fuel hose in the engine bay which needs replacing ...I have two questions.. 1)The existing hose , apart from being damaged, looks to be routed a very untidy way (maybe unsafe, so close to the engine?) to the filter, and then onto the carb.....can anyone post a pic of how they have routed their set up? 2)Just out of interest I've been told that originally the fuel line in the engine compartment was metal all way to the carb - is this correct? All the best Kev
  11. thanks all! plenty of leads - very much appreciated kev
  12. Hi all Can anyone recommend a classic car repair/restoration shop in Maryland? Ideally Washington/Baltiomore area.. All the best Kev
  13. Many thanks for you responses, much appreciated...it was general enquiry re all the available options but i have now located a copy of an original dealer form that was filled out by customer back in the day, complete with all codes...
  14. Hi All Does anyone know of a comprehensive list of optional equipment codes for a 65 Riviera? There's a lot of info re decoding cowl tags, maybe with the odd optional equipment codes - but i've been unable to find a comprehensive source of info re. optional extras... Thanks in advance Kev
  15. Hi All Has anyone lowered their 65 with Jamco coils springs 2" or 3"? If so can you advise amount of road clearance you have to frame/exhaust - whatever is nearer the ground? All the best Kev
