I gave one fender a rubdown with Blue Lightning to get most of the rust stains off, and it polished up pretty well. A friend got it running, and although it blew out two piles of muffler shreds out of the tailpipes, he was able to move it around the yard using the e-brake to stop. I'll post a couple shots of it soon.
As promised:

My father once owned a Red '65 Riviers GS with the dual quad 425 in the late Seventies. It was one of his favorite cars and that's really saying something after everything that he's owned! I always wanted one for myself and it finally happened when my father found a one-owner survivor, Yellow '65 while hitting the Wednesday morning garage sales. Even the original Protect-0-plate had the address that I purchased the car from. They are very, very cool cars.

Good job Ryan! I will eventually have another one too. Had a 65 when I was 18, too young to appreciate it then. Can't wait for the pictures.

Hmmmm... I like Riv's
Years ago I tried to talk a guy out of his 65 dual quad, he wouldnt go for it...
It rotted over time and was eventually hauled away as junk.
Still pisses me off when I think about it.

I know, sad story...get out the tissues to wipe away the tears.
