Bought 73 Riviera - Need parts sources

Recommended Posts

Well it has been a while since I have visited the forum and posted but I will be here more often as I just sold my 65 Riviera GS and purchased a 73 Riviera driver. I will need advice and sources for parts, especially the interior. Car was in California all its life and the heat and sun have dried out the plastic parts including the dash that is split.

I have been doing internet research and have run across 4-5 sites that specialize in Buick parts so I am make a list of what I need and will get busy locating the parts.

Right now it is a 20 footer but hope to improve on that. Any and all advice welcome. My 32 67S sits in the heated garage awaiting better weather to show up here in Texas.<!-- google_ad_section_end -->

Nice looking 73. On a side note, let's see some pics of the 65 GS you sold. I'm kinda surprised you'd sell a car as nice as a 65 GS for a 73, however?

Have you checked Original Parts Group and Clark's Corvair for interior parts?

Rob , I was not driving the 65 GS for a number of reasons and it continued to escalate in value so I wanted to see someone else enjoy it. I have other cars I play with and really wanted a "driver" we could jump in and go to events, meetings, etc. and not worry about rain, rock chips, etc. and the 73 fulfills that need. I will improve it some but it will not be a full blown restoration.
