  1. Thanks Rivnut. I'm still researching how I want to deal with the sound system. Question though. I have the custom interior with the Baronet cloth inserts with blue vinyl, like you pointed out. Is there a place that sells that upholstery like I see the vinyl, or would I need a custom restore?
  2. Took my buddy and his son for a spin in my 'new to me '63. His 12 yr old son said "Dad, this is so cool! It's like riding on a magic cloud!" Lol!
  3. Thank you Tom Mooney. I misread your first comment. I thought you were saying you had one for sale. I reread and realize what you meant. Thank you for the info. Such a wealth of experience on this forum. Much appreciated.
  4. Is it from a 63? What are you asking for it? What model radio is it?
  5. RivNut, it is a northeast car. I'm the fourth owner. I have some history of the car. Thanks for the clues guys. There actually is a floor button and it works! Not that I can get more than a Spanish language station and almost a sports channel. I may put a stereo in the glove box, or something but I dont think I want to mess with the original radio. I'll have to see what others have done. I've had this Riv about a week and I dont want to rush anything and regret it after.
  6. Thanks guys. I re Posted in the Buick section.
  7. Another newby. thanks in advance for your knowledge and wisdom. lol. and apologize for the long first post. About me, although Im a quick study and can usually figure out mechanics and such, I am by far NO experienced mechanic. A few months back I bought a 64 riv, as a project for my 12 yo daughter and I. Big mistake. I didn't inspect properly and acted impulsively. It has a 425, runs, seats are in really great shape. The car and all chrome has been shake can painted flat black, (WHY!). The rest of the car is pretty much consists of rust and rot. best way to advertise to get it off my driveway, looking for $3000 OR b.o. NOW, I wised up and bought another. This is a '63, pictured. I will have so many questions as this awesome daddy daughter project goes on. those with experience, where to start? i want to keep as stock as possible without being a complete fanatic, (not that thats a bad thing.) purists are impressive to me and they are the ones with the most knowledge, so big respect. It runs beautiful, well cared for by the previous owner, but never really restored, just lovingly, and I mean lovingly, he teared up when I was about to drive away cared for. a few of many questions to come for the '63. wonder bar, how does it work? is there a way to get the original sticker info to id options that may not be on the data plate? First thing I should do. I was going to start with radio, mainly because I've it before. thanks again. i translated the data plate but the are a few things on there that im not sure about, IE: 717-J2. 717 is blue, but J2?
  8. 1964 Riviera for sale in Easton Pa. 425 engine runs, trans works. No brakes. Good doors. Black Vinyl on seats is almost unblemished. Most molding and both bumpers are in tact but have been shake can painted flat black (why!?). Floors, trunk and hood need to be replaced. Picked up as a project but found a better '63 right after I picked this one up. $3000 or best offer.
