Nice! I am bidding on these. 

FYI  -  For the buy it now price, you can have your drums re-lined three times by J & G.  They advertise in the Riview.  Nothing different when you put a new cast iron liner in your old aluminum drum.

I sure as heck am not doing the Buy It Now!

Nice 68 for the price, although I'm not sure the silver goes well with the green interior ?????

The dual stripe white walls are cool.

 

OK, I am getting ready to contradict myself from an another posting. I do notice some anomalies on this car:

1) the rear bumper is from a 1969 Riviera (R logo gas door and reverse lenses in the main tail light lenses)

2) 69 Riviera door panels(?) with 68 dash and seats

 

Rivnut, my apologies... :unsure:

64 Riv with Dual Quads.  I notice he says factory 401, but it is possible it is a 425.  I have found many times a seller simply isn't that knowledge on the difference, and read somewhere what engine that model came with and hasn't even checked to see if that is what he has.  Or it could also be a that someone added the DQ parts later to a 401.  Who will make the call and solve the mystery?  :>)

ALL 64 Rivieras came stock with a 425.  Your best bet is to get a picture of the engine production code stamping.  If this is a true Super Wildcat engine the stamped code will be KX.  All 401's are coded with a T, single barrel 425's are coded with a W.  Years 63, 64, 65, 66 are coded J, K, L, M respectively.  The Super Wildcats in 64 and 65 will have an X rather than a W, except in 66 when the 179 (really rare) factory equipped Super Wildcats were coded MZ.  A dealer equipped 66 Gran Sport will still be coded MW.

I just contacted the owner, he says the 425 was replaced with a 401, and that the dual quads are original.

In that case you'll want the casting number from the intake manifold and the stamping numbers from the carburetors, and the number on the band on the distributor.

Huh. That tells me the images are probably a decade old.

 I just went out of my way to  Philadelphia to look at a car which initial photos must’ve been a decade old. Nothing like being deceived. The car showed rust where the hi-resolution pictures did not. Infuriating. One never knows until in person. 

Not the first time I’ve been duped and won’t be the last. 

Some people, I’ll tell ya!

Awards given by the unknowing?  Engine has either been painted the wrong color or is not original.  Wheel covers are Riviera but not 1963.  The really unique thing is .....? See if you can find it. It's original but rare. Does the whisk broom come with it?  One would think that if you're asking $20K, you'd want to show something at its best.

Don't know much about the specifics of the '63, but the shifter indicator does look unique...

When is the last time you saw a Riviera without a radio?  You got a credit for the radio delete option.
