Gents, it’s easy. Just loosen all he nuts and bolts and lift it out. Might as well change leaky heater core. Fog was coming up through the defrost vent and it was getting hard to see.  Thought something was up

And the rarity and name makes it even cooler I think.

 

"Shadow Turquoise."

 

RoA figures show only 1372 from factory for 1966.

Love that color too. My grandmother had a 66 impala that color, or very close, when I was a kid.

Turquoise mist is a top color on the Rivieras IMO also...

I think that black is the top color for 63, Claret Mist is the top color for 64, and silver is the top color for 65.

Oops, those are the colors of my Rivieras.  No prejudice, right?

Tell your friends. Times running out; not everyone is going to have the privilege of driving a Riviera before they die of Coronavirus. Just saying...

Another addition to my personal color slide archive of classic automobiles.

 

Pictured below is a 1963 Riviera sitting in a residence driveway. Location and slide processing date are unknown.

I like the fade paint job on the right front fender.

My thought is that it's a shadow falling across the fender. You will see the corner of the bumper is also a bit darkened.

I knew that.  My comment was on how 'well' the photographer framed his photo.  In the same light, he must have run through a puddle of some kind because he has smudges on his tire and wheel cover.

I didn't notice. Good eye, Ed.

How many are you going to need before you're satisfied? 😊

Mike,

 

If I remember correctly, the late Chris Wolfe, a good friend of mine and one of the first ROA members, wrote an article about photographing cars and published it in the Riview.  Chris wrote one of the first books dedicated to the Riviera which was published in 1986.  Every once in a while, one will show up on Amazon but they usually are pretty worn and go for around $80 - $90. I'll never let go of mine, it's signed and personalized.  He and our friend Oin Loe, from Norway, spent a couple of days with me and Linda before going on to the 2005 ROA event in Eureka Springs.  At that time we discussed collaborating on volume 2 which would have covered the 74 - 99 models.  But before we got too far along, he passed away.  

 

Anyway, as a semi-professional photographer, Chris was very good at setting cars into good back grounds.  In the more recent volumes of the Riview, you can see the effects of settings and how the car is presented, especially when compared to some of the first volumes.  Ray Knott has done a really good job of getting the best photos for the Riview.

Ed, I satisfied now. By having another set I can fix them up so someone else can be as satisfied. They are real fun to clean polish powder coat and buff out.

If you'll notice, those wheel covers have the same silver/black Buick Tri-shield center medallions as the ones your are reproducing.
