Poor impulse control+auction= "The beast"

Loved this car for decades and now I own one !! '65 Riviera.











425 C.I. ( 7 L ) with factory dual 4-barrel carbs (delivered in the trunk to the dealership). The "super wildcat" motor puts out 369 HP and 465 lbs. torque- crazy !! hideaway headlights ( one off year option) and very comfy. Gonna black it out ( or "carbon shwartz" it like my '70 chevelle) mmmm.....'65 Riv....

Have fun!

I'm looking at 8 barrels of gas sucking carbeuration, which makes the 740 the gas miser of the household ( LOL !!! ) Pretty sad but kinda funny.

Yeah, I see the dual carbs ... I can hear the gas flowing . I LOVE the concealed headlights, reminds me of a knight. LOL

I can almost hear the growl of the engine.

Sweet
