The Riviera is a luxury car marketed by Buick from 1963 to 1999. The Riviera was General Motors’ first luxury car and was highly praised by automotive journalists when it was debuted for the 1963 model year. Its distinctive body shell gave it an unusual Coke bottle look which was considered quite bold for a GM product at the time. During its makeover the underside was sand blasted and painted, the body was taken down to bare metal and the door handles were shaved for that ultra clean look before giving it a world class paint job. Its original driveline which consists of a 401 ci Nailhead V8, a 3-speed TH-400 Automatic Transmission and a 10 bolt rear end all received new seals and fresh paint at the same time. It has been pampered since it was new and serviced regularly. The engine purrs like a kitten at idle, it roars like a tiger when you get into the throttle and the transmission shifts crisp cleanly. The engine bay has been spiced up with a new radiator, tons of new chrome, a 650cfm carb with electronic choke and the engine sounds just plain nasty with its stainless steel performance exhaust. The front end components, shocks, brakes, the complete fuel system including the gas tank, and all of the nuts and bolts were replaced and show like new. The car has menacing curb appeal with its sweet bright green pinstripes, color coordinated bumpers and its gorgeous 18” chrome Riddler rims wrapped in Nitto NT555 G2 tires. The interior is all original with exception of new carpeting and the stereo system. Everything works as it should. Between the cost of the original car and the extensive makeover, over $50,000 was spent to making this dream a reality. It was never built with the intent of selling it but health issues force the sale making this car available for less than what it cost to build. We are serious about finding this beauty a new home so if you like what you see don’t wait until it is too late to reach out to us!
