  1. Alright experts....I need some help.  I live in central Ohio and after the car sitting for a couple months the weather warmed up a little so I decided to start my 64 up and take it for a little spin.  After a couple cranks and pumping the gas pedal she started up (sat for a month), however a few minutes into running I observed fuel leaking from the fuel pump.  I got under her and it appeared it was coming from the top end of the fuel pump and not the intake on the bottom side.  It was flowing pretty good so I immediately turned it off.  Got underneath her again and wiped it up and let it sit for a couple minutes.  Then I decided I would fire it back up and then this time there was no leaking....dry as a bone.  Let it run for quite awhile and the leaking was gone.  Two weeks later, exact same scenario however i only pumped the gas pedal once, thinking that might have been the problem.

     

    Any recommendations on possible causes?  I also took it to my mechanic which was approximately 15 miles away and he has not been able to reproduce the issues?

     

    Thanks in advance for the help!


  2. 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?

  3. 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

  4. 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,

  5. 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!!

  6. 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
