  1. That's the parking lamp lens. I need to replace the lower cover...like the attached.
  2. ISO a pair of lower park lamp covers for 1963-64. My set are beyond repair and need to replace them. Thanks for the help in advance. My zip code is 91709.
  3. A couple of pics when I was bending up and installing the rear portion of the exhaust on my '63 that show the rear KYB Gas-a-Just shocks with the new Jamco/Coil Spring Specialties springs...
  4. Yes, the Rivi rode really nice, especially on our terrible roads here in SoCal. In my opinion, they were a better ride than the Bilsteins (not as harsh), plus for around $35 each, it was less of a hit to my pocketbook. Just in case, I ran the KYB Gas-a-Just part numbers: Front - KG4550; and Rear - KG5466. I'm putting my '64 on air and will run the same rear KYB shock.
  5. I ran a set of KYBs on my 63 when I did the 2-inch front and rear Jamco spring kit. The shocks were the same part number as my '63 Pontiac Tempest.
  6. My wife wasn't very happy with me for selling the '63 Rivi a couple of years ago and since I finished the Pontiac-powered C10 build a couple of months ago in time for SEMA, this '64 showed up to my shop. It needs some work, but should be worth saving. It appears to have been originally a NorCal car that left the state and eventually ended up in Illinois. Going to build it for the wife. First step after finding the seat belts she wanted is rebuild the front and rear suspensions, and put it on air as she requested.
  7. 225/75-15 - a little on the frame behind the A-arms at full lock. Now is a good time to order through Jamco...this was in the email I received today: we are offering 10% off all orders now through February 15th! Use Promo Code: THANKYOU
  8. It drives much nicer now. The drive to Fullerton and back over the weekend was no problem (and I think you know how bad the road surfaces of the 60, 57, and 91 freeways are). I installed the 2-inch lower springs, which ended up a little closer to 2.5 inches lower after everything put back together and back on the ground. I often drive the Rivi to a local shopping center that has speed bumps without any issues.
  9. Getting ready to head out to yesterday's annual BOP show at the Fullerton Municipal Airport. Not sure if the owner is a member here, but the 65 GS was pretty cool.
  10. My horn relay in in that general area.
  11. Probably already mentioned elsewhere, but last year's Al Pacino movie, Hangman, prominantly featured a '71. Just in case one of the members here have not seen the movie yet.
  12. Yeah, I have my limits for certain years, makes, and models, which is much lower, but if the market will bear it, more power to the sellers. I think one of the other factors that is having more of an influence on the increase in demand is the overseas markets. Several part time dealer acquaintances have shifted their business model to serve almost exclusively the Europe, Australia/NZ, and Japan markets for classic US vehicles because the business has been growing substantially.
  13. Thanks! It was the 11,475th built in the first week of December. It has 718J2 trim package blue leather.
