    So it's not really a barn find, my father in law just gave it to us because we now have a house w/ a garage!! Anyway it's a 63 Rivi 62,000 miles all original it has been in the family since day one and started right up!!

    We took it around the block, and man does that 401 get that big s.o.b. movin'!! It will need some patch panels, and the interior completely redone( the windshield is cracked and leaked onto dash deystroying it) But baby steps my friends baby steps!!

    So here it is!!

  2. Congrats! Rivieras are a blast...great cruisers but you can still hit it and get it in the passing lane...have fun with it...I know I enjoy mine and keep it in the family...sounds like you have a cool father in law and congrats on the new house and garage

    A factory built custom car. All they need is some lowering, custom wheels and a killer paint job to be outstanding. don't EVER let it go, you'll never be able to duplicate the history. BTW, you must have one very cool fater-in-law.

    He is awesome, and I will never let it go. It has a plaque on the dash saying " specially built for Tommy Sanderson" which was his uncle. To much history to ever let it go!!!

    Bass doesn't know it yet but he just got another customer car to work on!
