    Its one of 262 painted this color . Had to be special ordered because that color was not one on Riviera's . Code 26 Mediterranean Blue . Listed in the Riview publication of the ROA ( Riviera Owners Association ) cars for sale . could be shipped to you under your low price and you would put over $1000 back in your pocket . sent you this info before.

    It was available on Electra's and LeSabre but not on Riviera's according to my Info . That's why there were only 262 painted that color according to production figures .

    So all it needs is the 71 Trunklid to be the best of years? :>)

    I would have looked at the Albuquerque car. If it can be documented as being originally from there - less chance of hidden seam rot/rust at body mount biscuits, etc. Less ambient humidity in southwest, generally.

    I am interested in this car. Had a bad experience shipping a 70 skylark from Albuquerque 3 years ago. I blame it mostly on the shipper and the rest of the blame on the owner. Have you ever assisted a a shipping from your area? Has the car been in Albuquerque all its life?

    Paseo / Wyoming are cross streets in Albuquerque. Paseo is likely "shorthand" for Paseo del Norte, an E-W arterial on the N side of the city.
