  1. <div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Originally Posted By: Jim65Riv</div><div class="ubbcode-body">Check with Larry Daisey at ranchoriviera.8m.com. I got a replacement set for my 1965 Riv, sahara mist with saddle standard interior. I was very pleased with the quality, price and service from Larry. </div></div>

    Hopefully he has some left: when I visited Larry (and Linda) last December he had not much left.

  2. Is there a Riview with an article about all Riviera (Buick Chrome plated)wheels? A search on the internet most hits are about the 4 3/4 wheels and the info about the 5x5 wheels are mostly spread all over the web.

    For sale in The Netherlands last year:

    <div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">For sale: Buick Grocery Getter.

    1928 Buick Tourer Grocery Getter.

    Wooden wheels, 6 cylinder, 3 speed transmission.

    Converted in the USA in the 40's into a delivery/working truck.

    The base is a sedan. </div></div>

  4. At first, reading your second post, I thought maybe you meant that beautiful Roadmaster I noticed in Springfield, MO while driving around trying to locate a Buick dealer where my 73 Riviera originally came from.

    Although we drove by quickly (were in a hurry) I thought I saw a 'for sale' sign.

    I still exactly know the location (even noticed that car in that 'street view' application in google maps)cause if I ever will own a Buick from the 50's it will be a Roadmaster...

    Car is (was?) located near Kingsbury Forest (east of the 65)

    But a 70's Buick is as good (even better) IMHO .... Is it a wagon, like 4-speed is suggesting??

  5. It looks to me this Riv has 1974 tail light lenses. The lack of the Riviera logo in the lenses that model year stopped me from a change like that.

    The 74-76 Riviera era is indeed a 'forgotten' one. Still I'm very impressed by the very smooth drive and luxury compared to all other (US) brands in the mid seventies. Admitting the 455 has a little less power than the years prior, but more than enough to get along with nowadays traffic (I use my '75 Riviera as a daily driver for about 30mls per day)

  6. Not a photo, but still Buicks in motion (footage from the 2004 Buick meeting in The Netherlands):
