Last weekend a good friend made me an offer I couldn’t refuse, and I’m now the owner of both a ’63 AND a ’64 Buick Riviera. I haven’t seen ‘em, don’t have ‘em home, but they’re spoken for. They’re both complete minus engine/trans, both supposedly fully optioned, rust-free, and come with a truck load of extra trim, bumpers, a pair of doors and other miscellaneous goodies.
My thought at this time is get them home, sort through the pile, keep what I need to make one really nice one, and sell the rest. According to my friend, even the “parts” car ’64 would make a good builder. In order to do this, I’ll borrow a little from my 401K, pay for the Riv’s, pay off my daily driver, and I’ll be even-Steven’s on the whole deal. Then, when I sell the ’64 and the left over parts, I’ll have enough to get a good 401 or 425, put it all together, and we’ll have the perfect garage-mate for the ’59 T’Bird, the ’51 Woody, the ’48 convert, and the roadster. I see it Lime-Gold, pearl white interior, American 5 spokes, skinny whites, bagged.
I STILL promise not to start untill the other two are done.
