  1. . . . I think they still are Paul - the true classic Riviera
  2. ROA was originally established for '63-'65 owners only, and ROA #1 eventually opened it up to all years of Riviera .
  3. . . . same holds true for '68 and '69 cars !
  4. There are two types of housings available - the CA emissions version (...shown), and a non-CA version. They are a one year only part for '67 GS 400 cars, and '67 Riviera GS 430 cars. The air cleaner shown is a California unit - the non CA units did not have the valve cover tube or the base pipe connection and no engine smog pump unit. Quit often the bases went missing, as parts scavengers figured the air cleaner was the only part worth saving. However, the bases were an SW air cleaner exclusive too, and totally different from a regular air cleaner bases.
  5. L@@ks like one of the cast aluminum SW facsimilies doctored for an Eldorado application !
  6. Mr. Paul has spoken, and he is quite correct - double check your GM Body Manual for additional info Mike !
  7. If they are anything like the '68s check your '65 shop manual. The '68 has a special adjustment procedure for getting them to park correctly. You have to insert a 1/8", or 1/4" drill bit or punch into a specific hole,or slot in the motor so they will park correctly ?
  8. . . . nice part Mike, and very difficult to find in that condition !
  9. When I get a momemt I can check my spares for you Mike -(... gotta track them down first). Flaking chrome was a common problem for the dash knobs and escutcheons ! They did not age well, and are actually chrome plated plastic. Will pm you if I find a keeper!
  10. Good news George, happy we all were able to find your problem, and thanks for the follow up !
  11. All accessories are powered through the ignition switch wen it is in the accessory, or run position. When it is turned off nothing should be powered. There is a power relay, located about mid center, behind the dash by the radio, that gives an audible "click", when you turn the switch to the "off" position from ACC., or RUN positions. This same relay also supplies power to the buzzer for " key left in ignition switch ", if it still works. It was most annoying, so the feature could be by passed. That power relay may be the cause of your problem - it also provides power for power windows I your car has them. It's a bit of a pain to locate and replace too, if that is your problem. Listen for the very audible " click" with the key being turned to OFF from ACC. or RUN position..
  12. Which specific accessories are staying on?
  13. . . . good advice so far Mr. Paul !
