  1. Thank you to everyone for contributing to this topic. I am just seeking a stock rebuild. This car won’t get more than 2k to 3k miles a year on it. You have given me a lot to consider and questions to pose to a rebuilder.
  2. I am looking to rebuild my 425 in my 64 Riviera would anyone recommend the engine rebuild kit from EGGE? I see it cost about $2600. Other recommendations are appreciated. Thank You

  4. Thanks I have read so many horror stories about the motor rebuild I want to adopt Tom and have him come live here for 6 months lol Then when I am long gone it will last for another 55 years Well at some point it might have to be converted to electric lol
  5. Had all the suspension replaced, ball joints, tie rod, shocks, breaks rebuilt, new steering box, water pump. Wheel bearings redone. Had a vintage air system installed, which required some customization since they don’t make one specifically for the Riv. Had all the u-joints and center mount replaced. New break lines and fuel line. Had the rear dropped, blasted all the control arms, pan hard bar and rear powered coated. Had all the bushing replaced . While it was out had new axel bearing and bearings put in the rear. Had new emergency brake cables made. if I am going to take something out I am going to touch all the components that make sense to have done. Had the stock radio rebuilt so it has FM and blue tooth. Recovered the seats, new carpet and insulation. Trunk lined. Some of the wood grain replaced too. New exhaust from Waldron I am sure I missed a few. Now it just needs motor and tranny done.
  6. Thanks I am well past that point 🤣 Already have 15k+ at least into it on top of purchase price Most of what I did was elective. I will keep asking around I really want to get it done and done right I have not worked on a car since 1978 and would not want to screw anything up.
  7. Thank you for the reply’s I am looking for trusted shop that can do all the work including the motor snd trans
  8. Engine is leaking oil, blows some blue smoke on start up. I am also going to have the frame powered coated while both are out of the car will obviously have the body removed Tom recommend to have the tranny done at the same time and I agree while they are both out. It appears to be the main seal.
