1967 Buick Riviera

1967 Buick Riviera

It’s obvious that the Riviera has had a long and colorful life including some kind of crash: the left fender and door come from different donors, the right fender is partly made of body filler. Rusted areas have been patched “the American way” – using roofing sheet, rivets, screws, glue, paper and insulation foam, covered with a thick layer of anti-rust treatment. When the excess layers get removed, the body goes to sandblast and then the amount of bodywork comes clear. The car’s electrical wiring is interesting thanks to the various electricians who have worked on it over the years. But it’s not so bad and so far all the projects here have become cars. 1967 Riviera is definitely worth it .

Body after sandblast – quite as expected

primed, waiting for bodywork

Bodywork begins. Rocker panels are full of wool and nutshells (nothing unusual 😉 ) – we’ll have to cut a bit more to get it all out.

New project arrived – this time already sandblasted

New body parts never fit perfectly. It needs skills, time and patience to get a good result.

Vent/heater of project cars is usually in bad shape : seals gone, shafts-valves rusted etc. Often there is someones nest or storage inside it 😉 To make everything work perfectly and to get fresh air in salon we always take it apart, clean-repair-paint, install new seals and core if necessary.
