Car description

This is a very original unrestored car. Very solid. 1965 Riviera. Rare and top 10collectible.
Only having to sale because I ran out of room. Car now not able to be in my garage.
This car is very,very solid. Very hard to find an original 1965 that is this good for restoration.
Better to find one like this and restore so you know what you have. I am proof of that with the one I just restored.
This care has no major issues anyplace.
If you know 1965 Riv's you know this one is hard to find in this original condition.Your talking about a car that could be restored in a very short window of time. No major rust issues, no major accident issues, all areas you have to watch for on these are super solid.I tried to take Pics of areas most this cars rust out. I have more if you wish to see them. I try to show everything I can and be totally honest.

  • very small repair to lower rear quarters from water sitting in them for 20+ years while in storage, only a small amount but it's there on flat panel bottom, (corners, insides, wheel openings all great shape with no rust)
  • little repair behind passenger rear seat on floor (not the foot floor). again water was sitting in that area for over 20 years while stored. (ver, very easy fixes) all floor pans great shape with no rust. Just this behind the seat passenger side small area.
  • Front window. can buy new. they are available
  • Couple exterior moldings, i may have in spare parts. What I do have in spare parts I am willing to give to you if Buy it now is met.
  • interior needs redone. Good frames but covers and foam are need replaced. can buy. they are available .
  • bumpers good shape but will need small dents removed and rechrome. Very easy and not expensive. Est to repair and rechrome $1000
  • motor rebuild Est cost $900
  • small body work on dent in front fender driver side. Very easy fix. Also obvious blocking, paint removal, small dent repair hear and there. easy.
  • Hood has dents from?. Out dents. Not in dents. Easy fix for body work guys. but will take more than anything else on the car to repair. not hail damage but similar.
  • seal, rubbers need replaced.
Good things:
  • original, unmolested. You know what your getting. Lacquer paint still on the car. flaking but shows originality.
  • No rust in body panels, rockers, underside mounts, trunk, you name it. Very solid car. other than what I listed above only from sitting with water in those areas. surface on everything else.
  • Wheel openings have no rust, just surface, great shape, still has the seals and rubbers on the rock covers. Amazing
  • all rockers solid, trunk floor solid, rear sheet metal seam great shape, mounts and all braces great shape, quarters great shape, doors great shape, fenders great shape
  • bumpers very good shape but need small dent here or there repaired and then re chromes as stated above. . I just did a set for $1000 for all that were worse than these. Lot worse.
  • all wires look great
  • firewall looks very good.
  • hood latch still has gold original chromium on it. Dead giveaway car is low mile original.
  • you know what your getting.
  • most everything is still with car, car is missing very little. what is missing happened over the year.
