  1. First rate magazine - the Riview. First rate club - the ROA. Jim Vesely ROA # 7437 BCA# 39477
  2. Tom, Lectric Limited indicates they are for the 1967 and 1968 models. I do not know if they will work for 1966. Jim
  3. Tom, Please be aware that Lectric Limited (www.lectriclimited.com) located in Bedford Park IL, which specializes in reproduction automotive wiring products, sells a wiring kit for the two underhood components of the four note horn option. This is their "Horn Wire Extension Harness" part number 90594 for $56.00. Hope this may help. Jim Vesely ROA # 7437 BCA# 39477
  4. Pat, They were available in 1968. Darwin Falk mentions it in his ROA series. I have confirmed this by having seen a 68 so equipped. Jim Vesely ROA # 7437.
  5. Paul, Here's what it says in the item description: Refundable core charge of $125 is included in the shipping cost. You must return your core within 30 days to receive a full refund of the core charge. Where cores are damaged or missing parts, a pro-rated refund will apply. The plastic case is not important but the internal parts are. Please ask questions now. On this basis, the actual shipping cost would be $20. Hope this helps, Jim Vesely ROA # 7437 BCA # 39477
  6. Paul, Suggest Proper Parts. Proceed to their website, click SHOP ONLINE, and you are directed to their ebay listings where the part you need is for sale. I have used it for over 8 years in my 1983 Riviera with good results. Alerted you via text message as well. Hope this helps. Best regards, Jim Vesely ROA # 7437 BCA # 39477
  7. Good suggestion. Thank you Ed. Interesting also that it is a 1969, not a 1968 as stated. Jim Vesely ROA # 7437 BCA # 39477
  8. The Riviera W15 interior option cost $2,900 in 1985. This is equivalent to over $6,800 in 2018 dollars. The W15 package was installed in 647 of the 65,305 Rivieras produced in 1985, less than 1% of the production. Please note that the largest production number for any model year Riviera was 1985. Even higher cost was the 1982-1985 convertible which added about $10,000 to the sticker price. This is equivalent to over $23,000 in 2018 dollars. Jim Vesely ROA # 7437 BCA # 39477
  9. Teemu, Suggest considering Hankook Optimo H724 - Size: P225/75R15 white stripe sidewall. Forum members have indicated this to be a good tire at a fair price. Please note that some do not like the embossing on the black portion of the sidewall. Welcome to the forum! Recommend joining the ROA if you have not already done so.

  10. Congratulations Rocky. Very sharp Riviera! Jim Vesely ROA #7437 BCA #39477
  11. Joe, Congratulations on the BIG DAY! It looks better than terrific. Your restoration sure is well-chronicled as well. Jim Vesely BCA # 39477 ROA # 7437
  12. Steve, The Buick cookies tasted as good as they look. Your "50 Special is a very sharp original! Jim Vesely BCA # 39477 ROA # 7437
  13. Thank you Ed and Gord. I plan to attend and would like to contribute $ for the food. So far, that is five. Jim Vesely ROA # 7437
  14. Ed, Agreed. A beautiful and special Riviera! As I have said, the owner is a stand-up guy based on previous dealings we have had. Hope Jim might be able to bring it to the ROA meet. Jim Vesely ROA # 7437
  15. Cool and clean! Jim Vesely BCA # 39477 ROA # 7437
