    This car will make a great restoration project for someone. It is definitely a Roadmaster, the air cleaner and the length of the front fender from the rear edge to the wheel opening confirm it. Did anyone notice that it still has its original front floor mat with the carpet inserts?
  2. Here is how mine are routed, I believe this is correct. If you are missing the chrome brackets that support the plastic wire looms you can get reproductions from Centerville Auto, see here: http://centervilleautorepair.com/ignitions
  3. The original fuel pump on a '64 Riviera would have been a rebuildable style AC pump. Here is a link to one on ebay: https://www.ebay.com/itm/1959-1966-Buick-Electra-Riviera-Wildcat-rebuilt-fuel-pump-4706/123450796026?fits=Year%3A1964|Model%3ARiviera&epid=18007848413&hash=item1cbe3da7fa:g:4B8AAOSwCMVbrYB~:rk:9:pf:0&vxp=mtr You would probably need install a modern ethanol-resistant rebuild kit in it in order to have a safe, reliable pump. I found an decent original pump in a junkyard car years ago and rebuilt it for my 1965 Riviera. Works great.
  4. The reproduction mats duplicate what was offered by Buick when your car was new. If you don't need to have the original style mats, there will be many other choices available. I can't offer any advice on the other options but possibly other Riviera owners will.
  5. You can get a set of reproduction mats from CARS: http://www.oldbuickparts.com/product_info.php?cPath=27_361_657&products_id=9524 I have a set of these in my '65 and they are very nicely made.
  6. I bought a new transmission mount for '65 last year from Centerville Auto. The mount fit perfectly with no drilling or modifications required. The price at the time was $40. This may seem high when compared to the cost of the standard mount that is widely used but this is a low volume reproduction part and I thought it was worth the price to have the RIGHT part. The motor mounts are widely available and you can easily just shop around for the best price. Here is link to the transmission mount on Ebay (sold by CARS) : https://www.ebay.com/itm/1964-1970-Buick-Transmission-Mount-Electra-LeSabre-Riviera-Wildcat-TH-400/183361738661?fits=Year%3A1965|Model%3ARiviera&hash=item2ab13617a5:g:3iQAAOSwnXZbrSj~:rk:34:pf:0&vxp=mtr

    1960'S Convertible Top Pump Parts-FREE

    These parts have been spoken for.
  9. Dave, The following pictures show how these parts get installed. The first picture is the large piece on the right. It gets installed at the rear of the right inner fender. The portion with bottom most hole gets folded under the adjacent hole and a single retainer goes through both holes. The next picture shows how the smaller baffle gets attached between the inner fender and the frame. The other end of this baffle gets positioned behind the lower part of the inner fender. There is a stiffener bracket back there with a hole in it. Position the hole in the baffle to line up with the hole on the bracket and install a retainer clip.The last picture shows the sheet metal cover in place over top of the baffles. The left side is similar, but the remaining larger baffle does not get folded, all three holes get a separate retainer. I hope this helps, let me know if you need more info.
  10. I have some very nice 1960's top pump reservoir parts that were stripped and gold zinc plated. I no longer need these and will give them to anyone who can use them for the cost of postage only. I also have one 1960's complete top pump that I rebuilt years ago that is also available for free. I tested the pump motor and it runs fine, however, I don't know for certain that the pump will function properly, but it is free if you can use it. NOTE: THESE PARTS HAVE BEEN SPOKEN FOR

    1948 Buick Super Vacuum pump question.

    The vacuum source for the wipers comes directly from a port on the vacuum pump. The picture (1948 Super engine) shows the vacuum line routing from the wiper motor. Sorry it does not clearly show the metal line from the fuel pump along the engine. At the wiper motor there is a short piece of vacuum hose that connects to a steel tube that goes down along the firewall and connects to a second short piece of vacuum hose. The second hose connects to the steel tube that goes behind the distributor and threads into to the vacuum port fitting on the pump. Hope this helps.
