Here is my newly acquired 1971.  Oklahoma City car since new.  The 65 I bought several months ago.  It is also a 1 owner local car with a 425 and SCO Paint.

Is the 65 an LL paint code?

It is a "Special Car Order" SCO code.  I wish i knew what the special order color was so I can repaint it back.  The origal color was a bit darker and less green more grey appearing.  Is there any way to document what the original color was?  It was originally owned by a member of the Lammerts family like the fabulous Samoan Bronze 65 GS so I wonder if they ordered several in Cadillac colors?

 I think you right about that - personally I just liked the contrast . Maybe change it another date when the mood strikes me .

Interesting. Well if a Cadillac paint perhaps it is Peacock Firemist (my best guess and a spectacular color) or Alpine Turquoise...but can you tell this is the original color/paint (aka has it had a repaint?).

Not a car but found a use for a couple of nice wheels I have had laying around so decided to do something with them. Friend of mine welded it together for me yesterday and it found a spot in my shop . The top is a 10X 24  and the crank is out of a GM 454 and the bottom is a standard road wheel for early Rivs . Weight 185 lbs ( my back is still hurting from lifting it into my truck !  Definitely not going anywhere easily .

This, unfortunately, was the last of my 4 - 63s. I shipped the car from Norfolk VA (it was a California car) to Catania, Italy and then drove it to Naples. Some cops stopped me on the Autostrada in Reggio Calabria and asked where I was going. I said Napoli. They kind of shook their heads and said "CIao". It didn't look like this at the time, of course.

Back in the late 70's-early 80's I had a 1977 SJ 400, 2-tone silver and dark metallic grey with a red leather interior. It had all the options and it could really smoke those tires. With all of that power it still got 25mpg on the highway. I loved that car and today it is still my favorite. Had to sell in 1982 as I was getting married and one of our cars had to go. Sadly, mine was the one.☹️

Hubba-hubba!  :wub:  I have always liked those too!  A '69 - '72 GP would certainly look good in my garage.  You do have a knack for finding 'black beauties'!  Where did you find that one?  Did it come with the honeycombs?

Thanks

She was on Hemmings find of the day. PO put the honeycombs on but they are a heavy, noisy and unbalanced PITA.

I need a wheel solution as she is my daily driver.

I never cared for the honeycombs myself. My 1977 had the rally wheels with trim rings. I always liked those. i wouldn't think it would be too hard to find a set.

I kinda like the honeycombs. Huge part of design is the mimicry of nature.

 Well, you know that Pontiac also had 'turbine' style wheel covers available for those cars...

 

That would enhance the Buick/Pontiac bookend theme you have going!  ;)

If you have any cast aluminum wheel covers send them to me and I’ll recondition them. 

All cracks aluminum brazed or TIG welded. ALL new 18-8 stainless studs. New grade  8 flange nuts with nylon lock. Webs powder coated. The back of the cover is powder coated. The rest of the cover cleaned, polished, and buffed out. Just like this:

Or buy a set, one, 4 whatever

Thanks. Perfect.

I am tieing the Riviera theme!

I can’t find a good set in 15”.

Plenty of 14” out there.

Enjoy those honeycombs while they are on. That vehicle looks like a Obsidian Killer Bee!

I just bought two 68 Riviera's to add to the stable. Of course they are too small to drive.

They are Buick dealer promotional models. I believe they are 1/24th scale models.

One of them will be repainted in the near future to match The Aqua Zephyr! 

I will then display it on top of the air filter canister.
