First time I saw that link. Too bad they don't post that Sled Ally built the car. Reads like Roadster shop did it.

They must have amended it-several references to Sled Alley as builder when I just read it.

Yes they amended it but it still reads like Roadster shop was also the builder. I told him the Roadster Shop sold me a chassis but never saw the car until after it was finished. "But after seeing what Roadster Shop accomplished with Charley Lillard’s 1965, well, my preferences may have been adjusted accordingly."

Default Low, Sleek and Nasty !

As my user name implies, I prefer an old automobile to look as close as possible to when it came off the assembly line.

BUT, this modified 65 Riviera is an exception.

Charlie, that is one bad ass car you have!

From the long front clip with Buick’s futuristic clamshell headlamps, the beautiful styled wheel openings at all corners lowered and stuffed with an awesome wheel selection. I’m hooked.

Ever since I was a kid, I’ve been drawn to the 60s cars back when they were new with their unique style. They still flip that switch when they are tastefully done as your car.

The cherry on top for me, is you preserved the Factory Paint.
From 20 feet I’m sure it looks fresh, but soon you detect the patina in that Arctic White from 54 years ago. I’m so glad this is the choice you made.

Thanks for sharing such a Cool Ride !

Chris.

A couple more rides from the 60s.

1965 Lamborghini 350 GT.
1965 Riva Aquarama, the King of all wooden boats.

It would be cool to see your 65 Riviera pulling a 65 Riva.
