  1. Thanks gentlemen. Great to have this forum and Rivi community.
  2. What are you calling the “hood.” Am I correct that I need to do this once I’ve unbolted both from the battery box?
  3. Sorry if this seems like a simple question, but just looking for validation before I tear into my grill. I assume to change my driver side low beam headlight i’ll need to remove the battery and unbolt the headlight assembly from behind battery box/shelf. I then assume there are some screws to remove the chrome bezel on the front of the headlight assembly to remove the actual headlight. Any tricks or tips to changing the headlight? Any pictures of it disassembled? Robert ROA # 15861 64 Regal Black w/ Standard Red interior
  4. I saw a post from 2015 where folks were inquiring about extenders for the front seats so your not so close to the steering wheel. Has anybody found after market bolt on slide extenders? There are a bunch of links on the inter webs but nothing for first gen Riviera’s. I’m 6’2” 320 and need a little more room. I don’t have power seats and thought I would ask before I custom make something. Thanks Robert
  5. Finally reunited with a 64 Riviera. It’s been 11 years since my last one ( Blue/blue). Regal Black with red standard interior. Bare bones but vintage air added. I’m going to enjoy the journey.
  6. Anybody know what this tag represents on a 64 Riviera. It’s located between the transmission and cross member on the bottom of the floor pan. Hard to make out. Looks like a 3 and an X
  7. Tell me if I'm being too picky and critical. I headed up to NH this past Saturday to look at a 64 Riviera and the body lines aren't sitting well with me. Is this just an easy door adjustment, expected for a 54 year old car or should I be concerned? I had a 64 several years ago and don't remember having this problem with the gaps around the door. Thanks, Robert
  8. Thanks everyone for the feedback. Give this one a look over and provide thoughts and opinions. Tint has to go and this is from a private party seller using a consignment house. Which would you choose. GO!!!! https://www.silverstonemotorcars.com/vehicles/347/1964-buick-riviera
  9. Correct....it's an aftermarket cruise that was installed, not original cruise offered as an option (dealer disclosed as such when we talked live on the phone). The turn signal on the column is a modern one with the cruise built in. Looks to be from a mid-80's Riviera.
  10. I'm the former owner of a 64 Riviera and am currently looking to purchase another 64' Riviera for sale in Texas from a dealer called TripleFAutomotive. It appears the original owner may have been a member of the Riviera Owners Association as the car has a window sticker and a tag hanging from the dash. I'm trying to find more information about the car. It appears to be well taken care of and all original (minus aftermarket cruise control) I've researched and requested additional photos on the Fisher Body plate, engine code stamp and transmission. It appears to be a numbers matching vehicle. Something weird is going on with the odometer. The odometer almost looks like it's been tampered with or the numbers are faded on it. Just weird. If anybody knows this Rivi....fire away!! https://www.triplefautomotive.com/inventory/184/1964-buick-riviera Thanks!
  11. Thanks gentlemen for the input, glad to know there are helpful guys out there. @ Rivinut, I'll be sure to start a new thread next time. I have no intention of paying the price listed and we've discussed a price that is several thousand below list price. I'm more interested in the fact that it appears to be a clean, mostly original 425 Super Wildcat which was limited production for 64' and that it was a number matching vehicle. @Rivinut....you are absolutely correct....these are not options, but standard. My previous 64 had many more options and was an AC car, but I had issues with the AC and found it to be more problematic than it was worth....granted they bring more money. I've also corrected the dealer about the claim of the steering wheel and actually desire the wood wheel. Attached is a picture that I had the dealer take for me of the odometer for me. I've just never seen anything like this. I'm not so much worried about the actual miles as I am about if something has taken place behind the dash in an attempt to alter the odometer. @Steelman....are you stating that the 4 note horn is no original??? I knew it was an option, but wasn't aware of any specifics beyond that. So I assume by everybody responses, that nobody is familiar with this vehicle. I believe the gentlemen who owned it was Raymond B. White. I believe he was the member of the ROA. Thanks, Robert
