Hi Guys, My friend has bought a 73' Riviera. It was claimed to be a Stage 1. We know that there are a few ways to find out wether it is a Stage 1 Such as; looking at the #VIN number (must have a W?) in it.??? Engine code XA??? Chrome Stage 1 air cleaner lid??? Any badging or other identifiers that we could look for to prove it's authenticity. Also what is the current market value for a running vehicle of this type? thanks a heap. Tickboom81
My name is Scott Versaw and I am a student in the Auto Restoration program at McPherson College in McPherson KS. McPherson College was the first (and still only?) 4-year college to offer a degree in Auto Restoration. I am part of a team that has been assigned the task of "authenticating" a 1928 Franklin owned by the college. In other words, we need to research whether the car is made up of parts that match and were correct for 1928. I've done some research through this AACA site and the Franklin club, but I'd like some help making a list of any characteristics that were common and/or unique to 1928 Series 12 cars. Can anyone help with this list? In other words, if you look at an alleged 1928 Series 12 car, what would you look to confirm that it is in fact a 1928 Series 12? Thanks for any help you can provide. I'll be at McPherson College for the next 2 years. If you are in the area of McPherson KS feel free to contact me and I'll be glad to give you a tour.
