The bolts that hold the two brackets together actually thread into the outboard plate from the back side of the inboard plate. The spacers are just held in place with the weld, but the bolts actually hold the 2 brackets against each other.


Thanks for the clarification.

"For Sale RHD 1970 Buick Riviera GS

$ 23000

Sydney - Tony Gentilcore 0408 964 217 or 02 9453 919918 hours
This is a very rare find, a highly optioned RHD GS Coupe (conversion done by Bill Buckle Autos, Brookvale 1970) I am told on good authority that they were one of the best conversions in Australia.

Factory disc brake front end, chrome rallye wheels, strato bucket seats with console floor shift. Total 1970 production of 37,336 Rivs of which only 3,505 were GS’s

According to my research, the 70 Riviera GS came with Heavy duty suspension, (includes different shocks, springs, heavy duty track bar) 3.42 Positraction Rear and Chrome air cleaner cover.
More info: rivowners.org/features/evolution/evpt70.html

This year model has the most powerful 455 Buick engine made, before emission regulations were introduced.

The 95 year old gentleman has been the proud owner of this Buick since 1971 but hardly driven in the last 20 years. Always registered and Insured and currently registered until June with the special NSW plates.

It has only 64,600 miles on the clock and apart from some minor rust spots and paint blemishes it’s very dry, straight and complete. Need new roof rail and door rubbers and steering box is leaking. Drives and stops well. Chassis and floors dry and rust -free. It starts easily and runs well without any knocks or smoke. I’m helping the seller with this sale so please contact me by email or call me with any questions. All reasonable offers will be considered. More pictures available on request. (close ups of blemishes, rust spots and under car shots)
