1963 Buick Riviera

Mike brought us his Rivi soon after he purchased it to make sure everything was in good working order.  As usual, there were things to repair, but unfortunately the motor had a dead hole and needed to be rebuilt.  We pulled the motor, did a minor engine detail and clean up, front end rebuild and clean up, repaired various electrical circuits in the cabin, and fixed some trim.
