Back in a 63 Riv after a 13 year hiatus.

Love your ride!  You did really good with the whole combo.  Somehow, the 63 with the 64 drivetrain is near perfect.  You're doing great! Keep going!

It’s been about a year since I drove the car.  I restored the door panels over the winter, but haven’t been able to do much since it is stored at my parents and I have a couple other projects.  Got it out and put some fresh gas in today.  Wish I had more time to get it finished.

Do you have any pics of how you mounted the headlights? How does it drive with 3" drop springs? Speed bumps ok? Bottoming out issues?

Steve, I really haven’t driven far enough to be confident. Initial impressions are that it rides pretty decent. It is low though, so it drags over speed bumps and such

 

 The headlights are cheap halogen H4 Units. I used a pair of original corner buckets and modified them for adjuster screws.  They would not fit behind the clear plastic corner lenses until I ground a slight Chamfer on the edges of the headlights. It’s all very snug.

Car looks great, where about are you in Ohio? 

I just bought a 65 that I lowered similarly & am in the Dayton area.

Hi Brian.  I am in Centerville.  Would love to see your car.

Yeah, definitely should get together when the weather breaks. I’ve been redoing the interior all winter. Hope to have it back together soon. You going to Kalamazoo?
