The Riviera



 

With the body moving along and on hold for some small parts for the drivers door, we switched the the engine build up. James did all the machine work while at the School for Automotive Machinist. Engine has been bored .040 over, the heads slightly ported and a mild Comp Cam installed. Lower end went together smoothly. We did uncover that this engine had a thrown rod back in the day that damaged the number 7 cylinder wall. It was sleeved previously and the car ran when the previous owner parked it. Another amazing piece of the cars history uncovered.

How long have we been working on it??
