Best advise I can offer is to keep looking on EBay. They do show up occasionally. You can also search your local Craigslist and surrounding areas.
Here’s one sold last  November:  
https://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-Cox-Buick-Riviera-Tether-Car-with-Cox-gas-engine-Thimble-Drome-Marron/222718000191?hash=item33db06fc3f:g:qREAAOSwWHBaCcrU

Or if you want Beige, here’s a BIN

Mark - whew, glad you made the purchase. I didn’t want it to get lonely all by itself. I’m glad it went to a good home that will restore it. Eric’s lead will point you to the chrome bumpers and stuff, bee ready to take out a small mortgage!  

If you really get hooked, here’s a basket case Corvette,  just northwest of Chicago

https://rockford.craigslist.org/atq/d/corvette-tether-gas-powered/6475424500.html

“Make me an offer” ?

Edit: if you have not read thru it, here’s a link to Really good Corvette resto. You might PM him to get details on those plastic latches, so you can rebuild the front hinges the same way.

Yeah, it takes a keen eye to know where and what for on these cylinders.  Number 2 is a very popular number cylinder. If you want to see more numbers and descriptions please go to the left hand side of this page, scroll down under “More latest topics “ and select “cylinder identification “ under the INFO headline.   There is also a pictorial of side view and cut away views of the cylinders here:
http://www.mh-aerotools.de/airfoils/cox_frameset.htm
Go to the left hand side and click on Technical Info”
You can spend a few hours wandering thru Martins web pages, if you want to, it’s fun and educational too!

The Riv is almost complete. Still need the dashboard & steering wheel. I restored it back the way I built one, Christmas 1964.
