1963 Buick Riviera

HIGHLIGHTS: Beautiful classic first-generation Riviera! GS wheels! 401 cubic inch 'Wildcat 445' V8 engine! Perfect cruiser!

BODY OVERVIEW: The body on this Riviera is stunningly straight! This car is an older restoration, so there are some minor imperfections to be found, but it is truly in prime cruiser condition if you're wanting something to actually drive and enjoy.

PAINT CONDITION OVERVIEW: Similar to the body condition, the paint is a few years old and does show some normal since of use such as touch-ups and minor chips. We would describe the paint as close to a “driver condition” and still looks great. Even more, it is finished in its factory-correct Arctic White. Combined with the tan interior and this Riviera is a stunner!

INTERIOR CONDITION OVERVIEW: Step inside the Riviera, and suddenly it feels as if it is 1963. Every original piece appears to be in place, either with good condition original parts or nice replacement parts. The seats look to have been recovered in the past, and the carpet appears to have been replaced as well. The steering wheel is showing normal cracking, as it appears to be an original Buick part. The dash pad has been recovered to match the interior color, and looks good! As a whole, the interior has been kept in Saddle color, as original according to the body tag. Modifications in the interior are kept to an extreme minimum, with the only notable change being a vintage-look modern radio and speakers installed in the package tray. All those classic space age Buick knobs and gauges are still in place, and you can't help but feel the personal luxury while seated inside this car.

MECHANICAL OVERVIEW: Lift the hood and you'll be greeted by a 401 Buick 'Nailhead' V8, dubbed the Wildcat 445 for its factory torque rating. The engine runs great, and is just as smooth as Buick should be. This car has plenty of power, and drives like a dream. The transmission shifts smoothly, and the aftermarket front disc brakes stop this beast with ease. Even the air conditioning works properly!

WHAT YOU'LL LOVE ABOUT THIS CAR: These Rivieras have aged incredibly well. A fusion of early '60s styling and what became late '60s muscle car attributes, you can't help but love these cars!

WHAT YOU MIGHT HATE ABOUT THIS CAR: As nice as it is, if you're looking for an expertly restored, blue-ribbon trailer queen, this is not it.

DOES IT NEED ANYTHING? This car is ready to go!

WHAT BUYER IS LOOKING FOR THIS CAR? If you're looking for a unique, classic personal luxury car, you've found it!

We can assist you in delivery through our network of private and commercial carriers most of which can deliver the vehicle to your driveway. We assume no responsibility for damages or delays incurred once a vehicle is in a shipper's custody.

A dealer documentation fee of $250 will be added to the purchase price at the time of sale.
