1963 Buick Riviera. Nice straight, clean, show quality driver condition. Numbers matching 401 w/ Turbine trans. One known repaint (white) by a previous owner sometime around 15-20 years ago. Body tag shows the original color was Desert Sand. This beauty has PS. PB. and automatic transmission. Body tag plate shows only tinted glass & remote side mirror as options. This was a radio delete car. The after-market radio was installed at some point early on with the original owner. Clock does not work. Judging from paperwork received with the car, its restoration was done around 2002.
New interior, etc. Repaint, engine rebuilt (paperwork shows rebuild mileage of 53398). Paint remains very nice, showing beautifully with lots of shine. No rust, Trim is very nice with only a couple small dings (nothing bad). Chrome bumpers are very nice/excellent. Interior is clean and a wonderful tobacco color, vinyl reproduction seat covers, carpet & door panels look original with some wear but look good and still very usable. Engine runs great, good power, no smoke. Transmission weeps a little as most all of these Turbine Dyna Flows do. Runs, drives and handles well. Current mileage is 64,264 which translates to just under 11k miles since restored.
Car was originally from Utah & still has the "Built Expressly For" dash plate w/ orig. owners name.
New parts added within the last 1-2 years include:
Front disk brake conversion.
2" front & 1" rear Lowering Springs.
17" American Torque Thrust Wheels (17"x7" & 17"x8")
17" Kumho Tires(215/50R17 & 245/50R17)
PST(Performance Susp. Tech. ) new front end kit includes Tie Rods, Ball Joints, Bushings, Shaft Kit, Rear Track Bushing and more...
This is a rare car, these Buick's are often forgotten about. Be different, stand out from the mainstream cars everyone has. This one has style, performance and great presence.
