  1. I've just SOLD one of these from my little stash of these NOS 1979-1985 Riviera hood ornaments. And, to answer a question that's been posed: No, I didn't make these! The guy was wondering why I had more than one available. I did buy a number of these, as this ornament was being discontinued by Buick. I had Riv's of this vintage at the time, and figured it would be good to have spares. And, as my wife reminds me, I DO have spares. Most of my recent sales of these NOS hood ornaments have been to Riviera convertible conversion owners. Seems like there's a continuing, and growing collector interest in these nifty droptop's. So, if you want to pick up a needed....or even a spare NOS hood ornament for your 1979--85 Riv, just let me know. Thanks! John

  4. I have an NOS 1979-1985 RIVIERA hood ornament for sale. It has the gold “R” logo, and is complete with the spring base. Ready to install. This is a genuine BUICK NOS part, in wonderful condition. This RIVIERA hood ornament went “NLA” from BUICK many years ago. The price is $48, plus $8 shipping in the U.S. Also happy to ship internationally. Thanks for looking.

  7. This is the much harder to find, REAR genuine GM accessory license plate frame for our General Motors cars. It has the pull-down handle to access the gas filler. I've come up with two GM part numbers for it online: 988699 and 988966. This GM frame looks good on any 1960's-1970's GM vehicle with the center fill gas tank under the license plate. This stainless steel frame is in overall very good condition. NOTE: There is ONE dent in it, as shown in the photos near the letter "A". This is NOT a gouged dent, and should be able to be taken out quite nicely by someone who can repair stainless trim. There are also some light scratches here and there (nothing serious), which will be buffed out by the stainless guy. The license plate holding "fingers" are solid. Anything else you might see in the photos is just a reflection. I'm thinking this frame may have been an early take-off, and then saved. I've had it among my spare goodies for 30 years or so. The price is $75, plus $8 shipping in the U.S. Thanks for looking. John

  10. This is a genuine GM NOS Left-Side Rear Exhaust Pipe for 1963 to 1965 RIVIERA (except GS). This is the left side pipe that goes between the outlet of the left resonator and the inlet of the transverse muffler. All of the factory flanges, of course. This is a very complex pipe, that would be hard for your local muffler shop to create. Still has the GM shipping tag to Bob Maloney Buick in Rock Island, Illinois. Has light, easily removed surface rust from sitting in storage all these years. The price is $65, plus shipping. NOTE: I will be attending the BCA regional meet in Stillwater, MN in August, and can deliver this pipe there free of charge. Thanks for looking. John
