1999 Silver Arrow #10 of 200

Just got it home, thought I'd post some pics in its present condition. sad
This one will take a good bit more cleaning than the other one did but I hope to get started on it this week. bonk

Looking pretty tired, showing its 179,000 miles:

OH! bow
Yes, 2 '99 Silver Arrows, 2 '95's, a '92, and a '65, thumbsup and assorted other vehicles.
Insurance is killing me! bonk Even though all of the Rivieras are not licensed and insured!

It doesn't look that bad really. Lots of basic cleaning which will take tens of hours, but I don't see any dents or major damage.

You're right, nothing too major. thumbsup Just real tired?
Its got a tiny dent on the left side below the quarter window and the rear bumper cover has been hit pretty good on the right rear. Other than that it has a scratch on the hood, a few scrapes on the passenger side mirror and right in front of the RR wheel, and some rust on the RF fender right below the molding.
....

....

....

That is most of the actual damage, will have to live with that, for a while at least! There are lots of places in the paint that have stains from everything that was left setting on it over the years also, I don't think that will just clean or polish or even buff out?!? I'll get it cleaned up, see what I've got and go from there.

I kind of got it so I can have one to keep and one to drive. No matter what I'll still have a 200,000 mile Riviera and that has a lot to do with collector value too?
Just have to see what happens?

I should have mentioned, another reason I went ahead and bought it was to keep it from ending up in a scrap yard, maybe not right away but eventually?!?
After a quick wash and dry I found a few more small dents and scrapes, clay bar might get some of it though. One big concern is the hood, found corrosion around the grill and that will eat the aluminum hood in quick time! I'll have to do something with that very soon! Also the chrome wheels don't seem like they have been cleaned or polished since it was new, have used a brush on them and still have a good bit of scrubbing to do to get to the chrome! headbutt
I ended up giving him $3K for it, a little below NADA and Kelley Blue Book, and a little above Edmonds. headshot
Not sure if it is a good deal or not, the only reason I did it was because it is a Silver Arrow! thumbsup

Good luck with the project.

Thought I'd post an update.
After a little cleaning......who am I trying to kid, A LOT OF CLEANING poop , one new wheel, a couple of center caps, and a few assorted mechanical issues, #10 is looking a little better! thumbsup



Engine Compartment...BEFORE


Engine Compartment...AFTER


Still need to look into some possible suspension problems, some HVAC issues, the passenger door mirror, and the body is beat up some, but it is drivable and looks decent, anyway!
I guess it isn't too bad for a car with 180,000 miles on it? cheers

I took a few pictures of #10 & #152 together, I am going to try and get something together for the Riview and hope it gets published. rock


They look pretty close to the same but 115,000 miles difference shows when you see them in person. poke

You're a lucky dog, Randall... I wish I would have had more patience and waited for a Silver Arrow. I saw one go for less that $10K with like 38000 miles after I bought my '98'......... I'm just glad I found my '65' from Denver when I did....... pirate

I think you are the lucky one, my '65 will never look as good as your '65 does, and I still consider my 65 my best one!

Very nice Randall. They make a nice pair...keep it up and you'll be able to have your own calendar! Don't you have enough for about six months worth? lol It would take me ten extra minutes to leave the house trying to figure out what key goes to what vehicle!

Thanks! bow
I don't think I could do six months of just cars right now, all six of mine are not picture worthy, well maybe six or eight months with interiors and engine compartments. cheers
I make sure and have the keys to whatever I am driving the next morning in a certain place, I don't leave myself an extra ten minutes! beer
