  2. I need to know what the green 401/425 nailhead engine color is called and possibly where it can be obtained...?

I'm more of a stock guy myself, but I can appreciate making a car the way you want it. Just please don't put 22's on it! </div></div> I agree...It does look like an elegant ride tho...
  5. I've seen shop manuals on CD on e-bay,but don't know if they are totally complete? If they are, they wouldn't tear or wear......
  6. My son aquired a 1969 Wildcat from my brother and the tail lights are very dim. We think there is dirt and dust inside the assys. My son and brother couldn't see an easy way to remove and clean the assys with out dropping the bumper. Is there an easier way?
  7. Where is the riviera "R" logo on the front? I think it should be where the trishield is at least. It looks awful stubby too. Riviera's are long ,low luxury sports cars?
  8. Congratulations Eric on your pristine looking '65'. The color is awesome. Definately an award winner. Bravo dude!
  9. I'm certainly going to try to be there next year. When I went to Lake Geneva, I was the only seafoam green Riv(65) there. I now have a fresh repaint. Years of enjoying driving that classic takes it's toll.........
  10. You might be able to find related parts or new motor on E-bay. Also try checking out Rivperformance.com I believe there's an Ed Morad that has Riviera parts and he can be reached through Rivperformance <img src="http://forums.aaca.org/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />
  11. <div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">There are a couple of areas that you might want to take a look at. They are realated. The first would be to look for rust in the bottom corners of the rear window. The design is such that it holds water in and doesn't let it drain out. The second is the floor of the trunk. If the rear window seal is broken or there's rust there; the trunk floor around the body bolts will have a tendency to rust out. The body has a cup on the underside where it bolts to the frame. If this cup gets dirt and moisture in it, it will rust away. There are places in the floor pan that should be checked as well as the rear quarter panel behind the wheel arch. Reproduction floor pans are availble but nothing for the rear quarters. Most everything else would be the same as on any other car. Spend the extra bucks and buy one that's a good one to begin with. </div></div> Amen to that. I bought one that came from Denver, Co.that had never been rusted. My brother and I looked at several of them here in Michigan and the back window area and the body mount areas were very bad. If you don't have a lot of time and money, buying one in good condition will give you a lot of enjoyable cruising....Life is short. <img src="http://forums.aaca.org/images/graemlins/laugh.gif" alt="" />
  12. Where the heck are the Riviera logos? <img src="http://forums.aaca.org/images/graemlins/confused.gif" alt="" /> [color:"green"]
  13. <div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">Where is the guy you use, I need exhaust on my 64 Wildcat </div></div> Anybody living near Muskegon, Michigan(west coast central Mi.)My brother Tim Linderman owns Exhaust Special-T's 231-788-4077. They specialize in custom exhaust as well as the rest too. They have two pipe benders and any type of pipe you want- steel, stainless steel and aluminized. He only buys heavier pipe than all the other shops and is still very affordable. They wire weld all the seams, so your system is sealed, no leaks. All the local street rodders and informed people go to him... jimmyriv
  14. How about Sahara Mist or Champagne Mist. I do like Verde Green very much tho...
  15. Hey Jon, Your 68 doesn't look like it needs very much work from here. It's pretty hard to keep a car near perfect if you plan on driving it much. I drive my 65 as much as I can in the dry warm months. That's why I bought it. I don't think most people that don't really drive their cars are enjoying them. I get a bigger kick out of seeing people enjoying seeing my car when I drive it. I get a lot of compliments and thumbs up from everyone. It's kind of strange that a lot of the younger generation are really into these older cars. I guess all the new ones looking alike has finally caught up with that boredom. Good for us old car guys........
