  • Crunched Riviera

    Not much left to salvage from this poor Riv. No reports on the wreck or the driver.

      ooooh, but that has a 430 nailhead in it, wonder if it's still usable.... I'd need more pictures but that looks much like it got hit on the shoulder on a highway... still, that biohazard sticker

        Unless there's been a new crash of one in that colour, it's been floating around for a bit. Still a shame to see one gone and the biohazard labels mean someone was at least hurt pretty baddly in there.

        Oh SBG, it's a 425 nailhead, the 430 was the full sized big block. It could also have had a 401 as 64 was the only year for universal 425's in the Riviera.

          I sit corrected... my dad bought a similar Rivvy for its 425 to put in his 55 Special..... which, likely, will be something that will never be finished by him... ah well, it brings him great joy even as a partially completed car.
