  1. This era Riviera was one of the last vehicles styled directly under the the supervision of William Mitchell, General Motors Vice President of Design. He was personally invested in the 1979 - 1985 styling, very proud of its execution, and without whom there would in all probability have been no Riviera after 1978. I believe it is worth noting that the 1979 - 1985 Rivieras posted the high water mark production of any Riviera era, averaging well over 52,000 units per year. Jim Vesely ROA # 7437 BCA # 39477
  2. At the 2018 Overland Park Kansas Rivera Owners Association International Meet, five out of six eighth generation non-Silver Arrow Rivieras were white. I believe they were all diamond white by my recollection. The sixth non-Silver Arrow Riviera was silver. One 1999 Silver Arrow model was there. Jim Vesely ROA # 7437 BCA # 39477
  3. A very desirable: Lincoln year. Premier trim. Coupe body style. Amethyst color. A/C. Not a common option, particularly on a coupe. Jim Vesely ROA # 7437 BCA # 39477

  5. Chuck, Great looking '69! Much improved stance and terrific rallyes. Please show us the installed full-length operating console when possible. Jim Vesely ROA # 7437 BCA # 39477
  6. Another option to consider might be an aluminum radiator. For example, Griffin produces the Exact Fit series radiators including made for collector vehicles such as your Riviera. They offer OEM fitment and are made in the USA. Griffin has been in the business 30 years. They are not inexpensive although cool very well. Aluminum radiators can easily be painted black for the OEM appearance. I have no relationship with the company. Jim Vesely BCA # 39477 ROA # 7437

  8. Nice work Lance! Jim Vesely BCA # 39477 ROA # 7437
  9. The dashboard, door panel configurations and upholstery pattern indicate that it is a 68. Headrests were standard in 69 and optional in 68. Jim Vesely ROA #7437 BCA 39477
  10. Randy, You are correct. I meant Jason Zerbini. My error. I appreciate all the offers made. Thank you. Jim Vesely ROA # 7437 BCA # 39477
  11. Randy, That is a kind and generous offer. If you should locate yet another I would appreciate having it and would like to cover at least the mailing cost. Thank you. Jim Vesely ROA # 7437 BCA # 39477
  12. Joe and Julie, Congratulations on your well-deserved National Award! Jim Vesely ROA # 7437 BCA # 39477
