Baby Blue 64

 

Good day...

 

For what it's worth, just for clarity, it's code H - Wedgewood Blue... 

 

Outta curiosity, does anyone know how many '64's were produced in this colour?

 

Later,

 

Mike

1965 Riviera for sale in Fayetteville, North Carolina 

Be advised, I am posting this car to advertise that it is for sale. It isn't perfect. Please refrain from nitpicking and commenting on its many flaws. They are plainly evident. 

 

I saw a 1965 Riv sitting in a Burger King parking lot on my way home from work today. I turned around and came back to look at it. You just don't see many First Gen Rivs in Fayetteville. I went inside and found the owner. I introduced myself to him and told him I am a Riviera owner also. 

He said he has owned this 65 and a 64 for the past few years and both are for sale. 

The owner says he wants $20k for the 65. The 64 is at I95 Muscle classic car consignment lot in Hope Mills, NC. (the same place I sold my 69 Caprice). It should be easily found online. 

I will do my best to describe the 65 without sounding too negative about it.

The 65 is white with carbon fiber tape adhered to the flanks. It has a 425 with dual quad carbs and the air filter sticking up through the hood.

The hood ornament is missing. The owner says that the car runs strong, bordering on "too powerful". I forgot to ask him about the mileage on the car. 

The shifter knob was recently stolen, also.

He states the car has been sitting for the past year. The engine bay and interior are VERY dirty and could benefit from a thorough cleaning.

The current seats are from late model vehicles. It was mentioned that the front seats were from a "Pontiac (model unknown).

The owner also installed a" kill switch" in the rearward center console. He said it is a theft deterrent. 

20180627_165930.thumb.jpg.8b128e263a3eb1dd62e6ab570d4ea432.jpgBesides the odd carbon fiber tape the exterior paint job is not a very good one with several runs observed on the driver side alone. No significant rust bubbling or damage was noted. There is a crease in the rear of the driver side front fender where the door looks to have been opened too far. 

20180627_170058.thumb.jpg.1b4ab91a3d43e82e8ede0d3358da86be.jpg

I did get to hear the car run briefly. It started easily and has a healthy rumble. 

20180627_165930.thumb.jpg.8b128e263a3eb1dd62e6ab570d4ea432.jpg20180627_165905.thumb.jpg.bc88611e39372cb0cb48dc11294f3dd5.jpgPersonally I don't feel the owners price expectations are realistic for the current condition of the car, even if it were to be thoroughly detailed. 

If anyone is seriously interested in this car I will be glad to test drive it and look at the trunk and undersides closer. (neither were looked at by myself today).

I have the owners name and phone number. Message me if you want to contact him and I will give you his contact info.

Mike, those seats are indeed from a Pontiac, specifically a Bonneville.  I have had several Bonnies over the years as a daily driver and those seats were very comfy.

Tim Nugent had a set up for sale at the ROA event.  I don't think he was asking quite that much though.  However, his set up had been on a '63 and the rear carb was an original '63 carb designed to work with a Dynaflow.  You'd have to ask him is he might have the original rear carb.  I know that the set up is good.  He took it off his car just hours before heading to Overland Park; still smelled of gas. If you were in St. Charles in 2015, you would have seen it there.

Jim is getting serious about selling this car.  He's now marked it down to $4,000.  It's every bit as nice as it looks in the pictures.

I'm surprised Ship didn't buy it and drive it home as nice as it looks, isn't he looking for a sixth generation Riviera? I heard his '92 has sold, and that would be a very nice replacement?

 

If I wasn't already at 10 I would consider it, but I need to get rid of some before I even think about adding anymore!

I told him about it but he said that he didn't like silver. ?

No offence to the seller as it's a well preserved Riviera, but I'm not a fan of silver or grey.  Just got rid of a '10 MKZ that had the same color.

Mike,

 

I wanted to thank you again for posting this listing.

 

I checked on it, even though the Craigslist ad was two months old, and it was still available. it is now mine, and added to the parts for my '72.

Nice car. These low mile babies just keep showing up.

 

While Buick got almost everything right on the 66-67 engineering, one thing they missed was reinforcing the lower edge of the front bumper so that when the heavy car was towed with the sling type apparatus of the day, the front bumper would not be damaged. Maybe they felt the cars would be so reliable they wouldn't need towed. :)

I noticed that too Jason.  I think a good bumper shop could straighten it out but not sure of the cost.  This generation Riviera and Toronado were prone to this malady if they were towed by a sling wrecker back in the day.  There weren't many, if any roll backs in use then.  The Toro's suffered worse because of the added weight with the front wheel drive arrangement.  Any time I look at a 66-67 Toro, it is the first thing I look at.  This is a beautiful Riviera though.  The color combo looks good on this car.

Wow, nice color and very clean! Even the tail light bezels are not all pitted and still retain the silver paint inlay. :D

The turbine wheel covers really go well with the maroon color, too, imo. $32k seems a little steep though.
