                     If you like eyeballing nice 65 Rivieras, go to Hemmings .com Rivieras for sale and

check out the Red with black vinyl top original owner 65 GS Riviera that was special ordered with every single option available

that is going to Barrett Jackson in January..........I'm drooling on my keyboard right now!

Would look good, but redlines weren't available on a Riviera until the 66 model.  To be correct, it should have triple stripe white sidewalls.59f0b25a6e567_TripleWhitewall.jpg.d270e5a306b1cc36bdb2ff17a98516d9.thumb.jpg.8e368c776c033b3e616938ec82d30f12.jpg

Vinyl top trim is missing or v top was added, as Steve has noted no cruise. I`ll be in Scottsdale for a couple of weeks for the auctions but I generally dont attend this auction house. Maybe if I have a chance to attend Barrett I`ll check it out,

He should elaborate how he bumped the original 360 hp up to his claimed 425 hp.  I don't think that was an option.

Cowl grilles are supposed to be painted, except for the surround trim which is bare stainless or chrome. I cant see these that well.

Looks like a very nice car, although I am partial to the color combo.  :>)

 

I don't have a picture of my cowl tag handy, but it is similarly (heavily) optioned, including guidematic eye, cruise, power vents, etc.

                      I had not noticed the incorrect vinyl top on the car. In my opinion this is going to hurt the

sales price quite a bit.  Chris, I love the pic of your car......it looks awesome!

Thanks Winston!  Here is another shot (my avatar photo), I also have the incorrect tires (and some wax on my rocker trim!).  :>(

Here is a picture of the back of my vinyl top, definitely different than the car for sale.

Mine is not in near the condition that Chris's is, and, no vinyl top and the interior is white, but it does have quite a few of the available options ...

As we all know, the body tag does not list "all" installed options so some of them listed in the sale are not that easy to verify, but this does show most of the main ones.

You're right, Thanks, and hopefully one day I'll have as nice of a '65 GS as yours is.
