  1. This air cleaner was with a bunch of parts I bought. The gentlemen said it came from a 64 Riviera. I had. 65 at the time and my air cleaner was different. It’s in decent shape for its age. Item is located in Clayton NC. The box weighs 17lbs. $75 plus shipping or make offer.
  2. Well I guess I’m a member of the 1%. Plain and simple, I like the patina based on what I can see and you have a title. I enjoy the adventure when I know there’s a good chance that what I see in the pics won’t disappoint in person. I’ve bought and sold around 15 cars/trucks over the last 30 years and each one had a story. They rarely make sense financially but my wife knows where I am at night and I don’t waste money playing golf. I suck at it. Just not enough in the first photo to take the chance on this one. I will be in Philly in the next 90 days and will check back in. Maybe the stars will align and you just might still have it. If not, there will likely be another in the future...maybe local...maybe not.
  3. That would be an 900 mile round trip which I might be willing to make if I had a better idea of overall condition. I’m certain I’m not the only one reading your ad that lives a considerable distance from you that would love to learn more about your truck. Interior pic to include the dash, a pic of each side and finally the engine compartment would be awesome to see and would help provide a baseline for what I or others might be starting with.
  4. Is there any way to get some additional photos?
  5. The throat is 4.25" and it fits my Carter AFB. Please PM me if you are still interested. Thanks!
  6. This tach was restored by D&M in Greenville SC and has been modified to work with both points and electronic ignition modules. The cost of restoration alone was $342. The chrome and face are in beautiful condition and it works perfectly. The air cleaner assembly came off of a 64' Buick Riviera. This is in excellent driver quality condition but will require some paint and repair to be perfect. Asking $475 or best offer for the tach and $75 or best offer for the aircleaner. Please PM me if interested. Buyer pays shipping. Thanks, Ron
  7. Most of the parts sold Sunday night but the tach didn't quite reach my reserve. I had some interest in the air cleaner but it came up short as well. I'm listing both in the Buick Buy Sell section. Here are some photos. Thanks, Ron
  8. I powered up the 8 track this afternoon and it wouldn't turn on so I pulled the listing. Several items have hit their reserves.
  9. Jframe/Zimm63, I listed everything on eBay Sunday evening. The reserves are very reasonable. Here's the link for the trunk release: https://www.ebay.com/itm/1965-65-Buick-Riviera-Vacuum-Trunk-Release/173001020003?hash=item2847aa1263:g:sHoAAOSwFytaG3hc&vxp=mtr Here is the link for the tach: https://www.ebay.com/itm/60s-Buick-Tachometer-Tach/173000987723?hash=item2847a9944b:g:xRkAAOSwpuFaG29N&vxp=mtr Thanks, Ron
  10. Good evening! Life has taken a bit of a turn and My Riviera project has been on the back burner for far too long. Time to pass it on to someone who can provide the attention she deserves. I have listed the following parts I have been collecting on eBay and I can provide links if you are interested. I have the following... 65 Vinyl Top Trim 60's Buick Tach, restored and modified for electronic or conventional ignition Complete Rear Arm Rest for 1st Gen Riviera Complete vacuum trunk option with 65 correct Trunk Release Horn Bar for wood wheel, needs chrome 1st Gen hood latch, restored/anodized Air Cleaner and Valve Covers from a 64 Riviera Rubber Conduit for power window wiring for 65-70 GM Full Size models 8 Track Player correct for 68 but it is mounted under the dash and could be used on any vehicle 79-85 Riviera Center Caps I will be listing my 65 Riviera locally within a week or two as well. I appreciate the advice and tips I have received from many of you on the forum. This is a great community of folks who are always ready to help. I can't say that about all forums for our hobby! I hope to be back in a Riviera in a year or two as things settle back down. Thanks!
  11. It's been awhile since I checked in and there it is...a picture of my blue door panel! Yes, it has door handles today. I like to enjoy my car while I work on the restoration. I have been through all of the electrical and mechanical and all new interior from Clark's. I'm very pleased with the results so far. I have started disassembly to work on body issues this past winter. I'm currently replacing the trunk pan and I have a little rust in the door jam as seen in the photo plus the lower quarter behind the rear wheel. A few steps at a time and drive it while the weather is nice. Hopefully I will get to paint this coming winter. Anyway...sorry to hijack the thread but I hate to leave questions unanswered! Ron
  12. Very sorry to hear of Chris's passing. I lived in Denver in the early 80's and was introduced to Chris by Ray Knott. I had a 68 Riviera that I was in the process of refreshing and Chris was as interested in the success of the project as I was. He took countless photos of that car and many were published in his book Riviera 1963 - 1973. Regardless of how busy he was, he would always take my call and spend as much time as needed to answer my many questions. He was a true friend and will be missed!
  13. I may have what you need. Please post a photo of your existing seat or send me a PM with a photo. Ron
  14. Hey Tom, Rob J. had a green interior in the white '65 he is restoring. Not sure if he still has the carpet but it is worth a PM to him. Thanks - Ron
  15. Go with Clark's! I had some issues with the dye lot on my order for seats, door panels etc. No ones fault really but I made one call to Clark's and their staff would not let up until I was completely satisfied. I can't say enough good things about my exprience with them and the product appears to be an exact reproduction of the original.
  16. I got my brake lines from Classic Tube about 18 months ago. They shipped right away and the product fit perfectly. I was very satisfied with them.
  17. I had both '64 standard and '65 custom seat frames down to the bare metal and could find no differences between the two. When I installed my Clark's custom seat covers in my '65 I actually used the '64 standard frame because it was in better condition. The seat buns are definitely different sizes.
  18. The purpose of the window sweeps is to keep debris from getting inside the door or body cavity. There are drain holes which allow water to escape. If the sweeps fail, debris can enter and plug these holes. The debris will hold water and eventually the body will rust.
  19. Make that x3. Paul did my switches a few years ago and I have had zero issues with them since. He is a stand up guy!
  20. Hey Gene, This thread is actually a couple of years old. Someone just revived it. I hope you are doing well! Ron
  21. I went ahead and modified my transmission crossmember to accept the '73 Riviera mount with the single stud in lieu of the two bolt holes. While the correct mount is still available from CARS it would have been nearly $50 with tax and freight. Since I have a need for instant gratification, I purchased the '73 mount from Advance Auto for $4.88 including tax and it was on the shelf. I drilled a 7/16" hole in the center of the transmission crossmember to accept the stud. The rest is identical to the original mount. Here are the photo's for anyone attempting this in the future.
