The Buick Riviera has a strong footprint on the history of Buick with its distinctive body style and fighter plane cockpit setup. Produced from 1963-1999 with over 1.1M put into service for the driver that appreciated the American vehicle but wanted something different than a Chevy or Ford. With some small changes in the first generation of the Riviera, the car stayed true to its original concept until later in its production run. Many acclaimed designers of the time heaped praises on the Mitchell design and even Sergio Pininfarina stated that it was one of the most beautiful American cars ever built.
What you see here is nice example of the first generation Riviera dressed in a glossy coat of saddle metallic over a saddle interior. The car rides on premium wide wall white wall radial tires on original wheels with wire wheel covers. The Riviera features an excellent un-modified original drive train consisting of a 465 Wildcat 425CID v8 4-BBL capable of 340 HP at 4400 RPM, mated to an automatic transmission. It features power steering, power brakes, air conditioning, dual exhaust, cruise control, Riviera equipment package, EZI glass, center console with floor shifter, power windows, power trunk release, tilt steering wheel, power antenna. The interior is in overall good condition with a Pioneer Cd player.
The car overall is in very great condition and the market is strong on this first generation Riviera as the initial production numbers were kept low to keep the demand high for Buick. Less than 38k were produced and very few remain on the road in this kind of condition
