With modification, the 3800 Supercharged packs some serious power potential, yet keeps its reliability for daily driving. Doesn't cost too much to slap on a smaller SC pulley on and open the intake for an extra 20 horses or more... you can extract 350 HP out of these engines if want to. That would equal over 500 HP back in the '60s!

Thanks James, I really feel the Riv is a luxury sport car, hence the whitewalls. I chose the really small ones to not overpower the wheels.
I recently painted the brake calipers with seafoam green touch up spray for my '65'. I put green dbbl pinstripe on the fender top edge for accent.
I like green.... wink

I really like the whitewalls. You never see them on these cars, so it makes it really look unique.

Whitewalls!!

Especially with a white body, you're a genius!! smile
I've been dragged kicking and screaming into the blackwall world, but hey, every Rivi before the '95's came with whitewalls even thicker than yours...

As far as the 'taunting' about power, let me tell you that if you do your own work, gutting the airbox lid, replacing the 'stat with a 180-degree unit, replacing the downpipe with a Hogan full 3" job, and putting a 3.5 or 3.6" MPS pulley on the supercharger will only cost you about $400... Really quite cheap for the increase in driveability and flat out punch.

I haven't been a member of this group very long and I'm just now getting to thoroughly browse the showroom. Your car really stands out. I like the whitewalls and the rims. I'm not so sure they would look all that good on any other color but white, but they sure look classy on your ride. Very tastefully done. KUDOS !!! clap

Thanks, Dave and everyone else,
Like I always say to those asking about opinions of their cars, As long as you make it YOUR car and you are happy with the results, then you have peace of mind.
As my brother told a guy when asked why he put 200+ louvers in the hood of his '56' Ford 2 door hardtop. He says " Because when I sit behind the wheel and look out at them, they make me grin"! lol
