That's something I learned the hard way.

The inner workings of the doors are accessed from the outside of the car by unbolting the door skins.

As far as I know, after the Riviera, the next American car with bolt-on door skins was the Saturn.

Great question.....

Now I'm in trouble, you answered the bonus question properly (exactly on the money) and Boothboy answered the first question so I think it's Boothboys floor but you to can fight over it and I will watch.

I remember them now but I can't remember ever having to pull one apart. Inner door release handles both front and rear on the doors , great for getting out of the back seat so I could go to the snack bar at the Sepulveda Drive-in after messing with my girl! The height of sophistication, Cold Duck in a thermos and a hot dog from the snack bar! My brother ended up with the car and I got drafted!
Come on Joe Ask a question.

That car was a Mercedes CL63 of the day I'll tell you that, it was so friggin overbuilt it was crazy. It was the first car that I had ever seen with heating ducts spot welded to the floor bringing air from the heater/AC to the rear passengers.

And do you know the stylist/designers name and what other cars he did?

Bill Mitchell was the head designer on that project as well as project leader on the 63 Corvette Stingray and the 70 Camaro. All milestone cars. He was a protege' of Harley Earl.

Distributor/voltage reg./ (possibly) generator adjustment tools.

If I'm right I have no question, so Dinger- if you have something go for it. If not, back to Boothboy.
