The Buick Riviera is a personal luxury car produced by Buick from 1963 to 1999. GM's first entry into that prestige niche, the Riviera was highly praised by automotive journalists upon its high-profile debut. While early models stayed close to the original form, eight subsequent generations varied substantially over the Riviera's thirty-year lifespan. In all, 1,127,261 were produced. The Riviera was radically redesigned for the 1971 model year with flowing and dramatic "boat-tail" styling. Designed under Bill Mitchell's direction, it was penned by Jerry Hirshberg, future head of design for Nissan, mating the two-piece vee-butted fastback rear window, inspired by the 1963 Corvette Sting Ray split-window coupe, to the Riviera's platform.
GR Auto Gallery is pleased to present this one owner 1973 Buick Riveria for consideration. Over the last 44 years, this vehicle has been meticulously maintained and never neglected. The vehicle has recently been repainted in Kodiak Brown Metallic and it sure does look nice after receiving a professional detail, it's still shining as if it just came out of the paint booth. The power plant in this Riveria is the 455 cubic inch V8 and is paired with a 3-speed automatic transmission, both are original and have not been replaced or rebuilt. Some replaced parts and upgrades include; newer tires, newer battery, newer rotors, pads, drums, linings, belts, hoses, filters, radiator, fluids, newer carpet, newer seat covers and cushions, newer headliner, newer vinyl rooftop and much more. A total exterior body and trim restoration was done in early 2015 where all the original paint was removed, minor body rust removed and filled professionally and then finishing the vehicle in 3 coats of primer, 2 coats of base, and 2 coats of clear in Ford’s Kodiak Brown Metallic. This is a great running car that is as straight as they come, turn the key, set a destination and this vehicle will not disappoint.
