  1. 1993 Buick LeSabre Custom 90th Anniversary Edition It was well maintained and we have a 2 inch thick folder full of receipts to prove it. The body is straight with no dents. All glass is intact. All lenses and lights are intact. AM/FM Cassette stereo sounds AWESOME! Interior is beautiful with only a few minor blemishes. New motor mounts, wheel bearings, struts. There are recently replaced parts in the motor. New water pump, alternator, mass air flow sensors just to name a few. This car is the most comfortable car we've ever driven. If you have an early 90s GM with a 3800 V6 that is looking a little tired, drop that motor into this baby to cruise in style. If you're doubtful, just take a look at the pictures below or head on over to the photobucket link to see higher resolution images. Stock Aluminum Alloy Wheels This car still runs and drives but has what we were told is a blown motor (bottom end). Silverdale Transmissions says the transmission is in good shape. It's very noisy at certain RPMs and may be drivable for 5 or 500 miles. We don't know and would recommend that you tow it. We're asking $1200 but are accepting all offers. Seriously, though, the parts and metal value alone are worth quite a bit so please don't call with a junkyard offer.

  2. Hey all! I'm restoring a 1969 Riviera and was wondering if anyone knows where to get parts for it? Also, my engine would crank and turnover but will not start, what might be the problem? I took apart the carburetor and rebuilt it, and gas is going through the gas pump but somehow it will not go into the carb. Any ideas? Thanks! Oh, and what kind of tires did these cars use? tia! Ed
  3. Hey all! I have a 1969 Buick Riviera project that needs parts at the right price, so if you have extras that you don't need, let me know! Need: hood driver's side door front chrome bumper seats Thanks!
  4. Solid car that runs well. Many photos of the car here. Current ebay auction includes a couple videos and more information. Buick : Riviera Buick : Riviera | eBay Thanks for looking!
  5. Hello All, I have recently purchased one of my dream cars (63 Riv) and I am excited to start over hauling this car and getting back into shape. I am going the Hot Rod style for this car. I am new to all of this and would appreciate any advise and help I receive. The body if the car is in great shape, and I have done some work on the engine to get it in driving condition. The interior needs some work, but that is not stopping me from cruising. The next project on this car will be wheels. I am interested in the KMC NOVA chrome rims(20s). I am trying to do some research but only coming up with the offset and lug patterns for 64' and later. Does anyone know if these rims will fit or can you provide the lug pattern and offset for this car. I also am not sure if I would need spacers or anything. I will eventually convert the drum brakes to discs brakes and i will have air ride suspension. Not sure if this will affect anything later on. Sorry for the length of this post and again I appreciate all feedback.
  6. This is NOT a link to someone else's part, this is ..... My Personal Listing The auction ends Thursday the 19th at 10 PM EST. (1) GM NOS left hand (drivers side) outer door handle. Part number on the handle is 9834745. I believe this part number must have been superseded by part number 9835145, as that is what is what is on the label on the box. This handle also fits : 1971 - 1978 Oldsmobile Toronado. This is a brand new NOS part that has NEVER been mounted on car. It still has a protective layer of plastic on the backside surface. You will also see there is a new gasket included as well. Functions as new. In the interest of full disclosure ... I wouldn't say it is 100% flawless upon close inspection. However, the imperfections in it are very MINOR in nature. Being that they are very minor ... they are very difficult to photograph. In the last of the (3) pics ..... I drew a green oval around the worst of these imperfections. Again, they are very minor so they are tough to see. Note : In some of the pics that show the "pivot" area of the handle ... There is what might look like rust deep down in the crevices. I can assure you that it is definitely NOT rust. That is actually a reddish-brown grease you are seeing. Pics :
  7. Hello I am in need of a 53' Buick windsheild, preferably nos. I am also in need of the trim and sealing. If anyone has one or can provide me with a lead it would be much appreciated. Thank you
  8. Hi, I recently purchased a 79 Riviera S-Type with a 3.8 turbo. There is a exhaust leak from the exhaust pipe that connects to the bottom of the turbocharger. I went to a muffler shop and they wouldn't touch it. It's extremely hard to reach from the bottom; you can barely see it, less get to it. Today I went to a Buick dealership and they don't want to work on exhaust issues. Any ideas on how I can proceed? Has anyone else had this problem? What will it take to get to this problem and fix it? Thanks, Mike :confused:

  11. Looking to get floor mats for my '63, which has the standard blue vinyl interior. Ebay doesn't seem to yield much in the way of results, and I saw the reference to Legendary Auto Interiors, but I think I'd prefer something to match the blue. Have found three possible sources, and I'm wondering if any of you have any experience with these (or have another suggestion).

  15. Hi. Can anyone help with any history for my '63 please? She was imported to the UK from Texas in 2007. The title papers showed last owner was a Mr Conley in Corpus Christi. US tag number was FYW 94T. Chassis number is 7J1070513. Body is FB24661 build week 03B (March 63?) in Flint. Original colour was Desert sand. I'd be interested in any info if anyone knew the car whilst still in the States. If Jim's still collating data, she has deluxe interior, AC, remote mirror, cornering lights, spare wheel on trunk floor, power aerial, vacuum trunk release, tinted glass. Also, paint appears to be pearlescent. I'm guessing that Arctic White was a flat finish? Many thanks. Dave.
  16. Hi. Following on from another thread re leaking rear screens, can anyone give a good step by step guide on how to take off the exterior stainless trim mouldings please? I've looked it up in the book but must be having another(!) off day, as I don't understand it and obviously I want to avoid damaging the trim. I can't find any threads giving details either. Do the mouldings just 'pop' off? The book seems to say to start in the middle of one of the runs. How do you actually get under it? Help!
  17. I'm going to be looking for some spoke wheels in the near future to fit a '64 / '65 Riv. I've seen pictures of these on the early Rivs and I really like the look. Where is the best place to look for these? Thanks, -BEPNewt

  22. FS: CRT Touch screen removed from a 1986 Buick Rivera - I believe it also fits a 1988-1989 Reatta. Monitor is in average condition but is fully functional. The trim piece that surrounds the unit is also included. Serial #: V134SE2 I just stumbled upon this board, so obviously I don't have a track record/rep here. However, I have been a member on multiple other automotive forums and can provide references if requested..... Additionally, this unit is for sale on ebay if a buyer feels more comfortable going that route. Asking $100 shipped. <!-- google_ad_section_end -->

  24. Hello everyone, Your help is much needed! My father and I are in the process of taking apart a '63. We're at the point of removing the body from the frame, and our original owners manuals aren't providing too much assistance. My first inquiry is about where all the frame bolts are located. We have two in the front behind the first set of wheels, and the same in the back behind the second set of wheels. Surely there are more bolts securing the body to the frame? My second question would be in regards to the windshield wiper removal. We have the assembly loose inside the body in front of the windshield, but we haven't been able to figure out how to take the actual wiper off to allow the internal parts to become free. There is a clip that seems like it's holding the wiper onto the metal assembly rods, but pressing it and pulling/prying etc. has led to nothing. We don't want to damage anything, and again the book isn't providing any help.. Any knowledge out there? Looking forward to hearing replies, and thanks for your time! We hope to get this thing moving soon enough.
