This is my second 67. I also had a 68 and 4 63s. The 63 is my favorite, but I couldn't get the guy selling one to respond. However, I'm quite happy with this one...I got it 1 December 18.

Will we be seeing you arrive in one of these at the next ROA meet?

Ed, I’ve never trailered a car in my life. All my cars work for a living, so we will likely be touring the mountains on our way up from Florida

How do you choose from all that's there?

I’ve created a proprietary rank-order algorithm based on the odds ratios of the square root of the inverse logarithm of the sum of drivability quotients as a function of goodness-of-fit. At least in my head, that’s what it sometimes feels like.

Attended a Cars on the Coast, coffee and cars show at  Becks Bakery in Port Noarlunga. David and Karen Barber invited Jo and myself to come along and followed us down in their 1978 Coupe DeVille.

 

Coffee was excellent so both of the girls were happy, and even more so when we called in to Maxwell Winery on the way home.

 

Some of the cars of interest to us included a 1941 Buick coupe, a 1967 Oldsmobile Toronado, 1963 EH Holden and an early Pontiac Firebird. And amazed at the strong following for early Japanese “ rice burners”.

Beautiful Car

 

Thank you Daryle, ...... and the Riviera is not too shabby either. 🤗🤗🤗

 

Appreciate your compliment. Must admit I’m also very partial to gold ones, including yours in another recent post.

 

Must admit the gold one pictured in the Autombile Quarterly article on the Riviera Reborn is absolutely stunning. Not sure if the guy mentioned still has it and is an ROA member or on this forum,  but it is in one word Bee-yooo-tiiiii-fullll. 

 

BTW a recent clay bar job and hand polish on my ‘63 has bought the paintwork up to another level, certainly a worth while exercise ( in more ways than one 😀😀😀😀😀)

I use clay bar as well, first time I used it I thought what a waste until I had to do the rest of the car because the front fender I did was BRIGHTER white. Also If you want another step up, you should try Menzerna polishes. Night and day difference on my Corvette.My Riv has the original paint and needs a respray.I am not putting any product on it because I do not want to fight the negative consequences when I respray the car. Again I love your Riv, beautiful car.

Here is my new Lady, still a bit work to do but a joy to ride. The wheels will be exchanged to cragar wire as soon as possible. I am looking for a set of rallys, the trunk emblems. Any of you guys have a recomendation for wheatherstrips? I hope that i can keep the original license plate from North Carolina in Tennesse as well, nothing fits better to the car than this 😉

best regards from Chattanooga

I doubt that -- but, if TN offers YOM plate registration (as many other states do) you can find a set of '67 TN plates which really will help with vintage appearance.

I just bought this color slide of a wrecked 1970 Riv. I wonder if this car ended up getting totaled out or rebuilt. Who knows...

 

 

Looks to me like a new front clip and it would be good to go.

 

Depends on what year it was, probably repaired if it was when the car was fairly new.

Finally reunited with a 64 Riviera. It’s been 11 years since my last one ( Blue/blue).  Regal Black with red standard interior. Bare bones but vintage air added. I’m going to enjoy the journey.

Beautiful 64 - love the color combo . Congrats ! 

 

Thought I would  share some pics of a 64 KX 425 . Bought the bare block earlier this year  and had it completely rebuilt . Everything new or original parts rebuilt to new  standards . All casting numbers correct . Correct AFB's rebuilt .  Original AC compressor being rebuilt  . I consider these early Riviera  engines literally as works of art . Gonna just look at it in my building for a while until I find the right car to put it in. ( if anyone has a Coral Mist  or Teal Mist that they're tired of , let me know 😄

Hmmmm, add a plate glass top to that stand and you'll have the coolest living room coffee table on the planet!  ;)
