I was looking at this earlier, the listing says its got a 1.6 fitted though. The thing that put me off it was the welding to the boot area round the fuel filler neck.

The blowover didnt inspire me with confidence either, but i am looking for a winter runaround - undecided.

That 'blow job' would put me right off, its horribly bright and only a token effort seems to have been applied during the masking stage. If he cant be arsed to mask off properly he almst certainly cant be arsed to dig the rot out before zapping those patches on the boot floor. Wrong interior, wrong engine, shonky welding and half-arsed respray - its the kind of car where I would just not wanna get involved, it looks absolutely bloody awful IMO! :P

It was an odd selection of engines on offer when you think about it. Who else offered a 2.3 litre engine in a non-sporting version of a small saloon car? I can't think of anything else on the UK market.

I'd imagine that's done to try and obscure the fact the front bumper is missing. It should look like the one below. I pains me greatly that one of my favorite cars, which is financially out of my reach seems to have ended up in the hands of cretins devoid of any taste :evil: Rivieras are georgeous cars... it deserves better.

Agreed. A 'boat tail' Riv is deffo in my fantasy garage, one of the hottest Yanks ever. I've had the horn for one since forever, as there was one on the last page of my Ladybird Book of Cars.

Blimey, I was just about to 'guffaw' and mock those who hacksaw the back off a van to make a pickup, but that really is the proper deal isn't it? Never realised Saaf Africa got those. Look at the quality of the load area, pure class :)

Have to declare an interest in Riv's too. 1 of my 3 yanks is a 67 boattail with a 454ci block. Fuel consumption is calamitous-fuel lines a similar size too a Mini exhaust.'CAD 468E' hasnt seen the road in many years-sitting quietly with my early Mustang & Firebird softtop. Whilst fuel costs stay high- probably for ever- there they stay. Sob!
