  1. Just changed the front coils and shocks on my 65 a few months back. Used Moog stock coils and Monroe shocks. I too had one collapsed coil. It made a significant difference to how it drove. Does not float like it used to. Tires are 255/70/15’s (came with the car) and ground to bottom of wheel well is approximately 26 3/8 on the front and about 26 on the rear. I expect the front will settle a bit over time.
  2. 780 - Sherwood Park, Alberta Garage is a mess, but the car helps brighten it up!
  3. Great looking setup! What size of rims are you running on the front and rear? Tires are Michelin?
  4. Thanks everyone for the pictures and help as well as the warm welcome. As a few have noted it is a fairly well optioned car. The original owner was in the Oil and Gas business and living in Southern Alberta, I think around the Lethbridge area, when he special ordered it from a U.S. dealer across the border. The dealership brought the car to the border where he picked it up. Not something that would happen now. I actually think he deleted the A/C on the car, which is a shame. The car followed him with his work from Alberta to Manitoba to Texas and back up to Canada. The car ended up with his daughter and son in-law in Sherwood Park, Alberta were it was in their garage for the last 15 or so years and never really moved. It was last registered in B.C. where the widow was living. So, now I am trying to get all the safety things fixed up to get and out of province inspection done for Alberta. The history with these old cars can be very interesting. Russ
  5. Hi Mike, I am in Sherwood Park. I knew you were in Edmonton, as I have seen your posts and pictures, but I was not aware of someone with the 63? Hope to see you around town this summer. Russ
  6. Thanks very much guys. I have looked through so many interior images on line and have not seen one!
  7. Like to start by saying what a great forum this is. I have been following it for a number of years now as I have been searching for a 64 or 65 Riv. I stumbled upon a 65 that was a one family car from when it was special ordered in December of 64. Finding a 64 or 65 in Western Canada is very difficult and the fact that it was in a garage about 10 blocks from where I live is like winning the lottery. Like to thank Bob Burnoop, Tom T, and Gord Wolfgang for their help on things I am presently working on. My question is about this piece that was in the trunk as to where it may go on the car? Thanks, Russ
