Interview with Ken Becker Jr. about his 64 Riviera “Deception”

Nicknamed “Deception”, this beautiful custom Riviera was built by Ken and his father — also Ken — in a garage the low-slung street cruiser was a seven-year frame-off build. Power comes, appropriately, from a Nailhead engine, modernized by a Buick “Star Wars” air cleaner. The body modifications include shaved door handles, hidden headlights, and frenched 1989 Cadillac taillights, and that classy two-tone green paint. The interior features 2010 Cadillac CTS front buckets.
Ken said he likes the way the Riviera’s chiseled bodylines were a ’60s alternative to the round curvy lines of the ’50s.
