For sale in the Gateway Classic Cars’ Chicago Showroom is this wonderful example of a 1978 Buick Riviera. Like many of the luxury coupes of the late 70s the Fifth generation Rivieras saw a downsize in 1977 as GM switched the car over to the B platform.

What the car lost in stature it gained in strong body lines and a stately front-end design. The example on offer has a two-tone Black on Silver paint job giving it a commanding appearance. Continuing the theme of the exterior, inside the car you’ll find a Grey vinyl interior with black piping accents throughout.

Don’t let this plush cozy interior fool you because under the hood is a massive 403ci 6.6L V8 engine that puts out a respectable 185hp. The combination of attention to rider comfort and grunt under the hood makes this car an excellent highway cruiser.

For more information about this 70s classic stop by our Chicago Showroom, give us a call at 708-444-4488 or email us at Chicago@GatewayClassicCars.com. Options include: AC, AM/FM Radio, Cruise Control, Power Windows, Vinyl Interior, Power Seats, Power Brakes, Power Steering, and Power Locks.

1973 Buick Riviera

1973 Buick Riviera


Engine: 455 CID V8
Transmission: TH400
Mileage: 52,773 ( actual )

We at Gateway Classic Cars of Tampa are excited to present to you this epic 1973 Buick Riviera. Here we have a 455 cubic inch 4 barrel rocket ship. This thing will cruise you down the highway at speed while keeping you in comfort. This Riviera will take you back to 1973 with its dark grey exterior and white top along with its chrome/black wheels. The interior is in great condition as well and is a mixture of white seats on black carpet. Now for a little bit of history on this body style of Riviera. 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. The design was originally intended for the smaller GM A platform, and the use of the Riviera's body—expanded for 1971 by 3 in (76 mm) in wheelbase and more than 120 lb (54 kg) heavier—produced controversial looks. This generation introduced a much more visual representation of the "sweepspear", with a more faithful representation to the version that appeared on 1950s Buicks in both the side molding and beltline. The 455 engine had a lower compression ratio to meet EPA emissions requirements, reducing power to 255 hp (190 kW), with 265 hp (198 kW) in the Gran Sport. Performance remained reasonably brisk, with a 0–60 time of 8.1 seconds for the GS. One noteworthy advance was Buick's Max Trac limited-slip differential. Don't miss your chance to own this awesome car! To see 100+ HD pictures and videos of this 1973 Buick Riviera, please visit GatewayClassicCars.com.

1970 Buick LeSabre

1970 Buick LeSabre


Engine: 455 CID V8
Transmission: 4-Speed Automatic
Mileage: 33,087 ( actual )

We have a beautiful 1970 Buick Le Sabre It features a gold exterior and black vinyl interior. It boasts a powerful 455ci motor backed by an automatic transmission. Only minor detail changes including grille and taillight revisions were made to the 1970 LeSabre. New features this year included a hidden radio antenna which amounted to two wires embedded in the windshield. Wheelbase was increased by one inch to 124 inches (3,100 mm), matching direct competitors such as Oldsmobile Delta 88, Mercury Monterey and Chrysler Newport. Both base and Custom models were again offered. Engines were revised with the standard 350 two-barrel V8 increased in horsepower from 230 to 260. A new option for 1970 was a low-compression regular-fuel version of the 350 four-barrel rated at 285 horsepower and the high-compression premium fuel 350 four-barrel V8 was reworked with horsepower upped to 315 on a 10.25 to 1 compression ratio. Added to the lineup was a new LeSabre 455 line which shared interior and exterior trimmings with the LeSabre Custom and was powered by Buick's new 455 cubic-inch V8 with four-barrel carburetor, 10.25 to 1 compression and 370 horsepower, which also required premium fuel. Transmission offerings included a standard three-speed manual with column shift for the base 350 two-barrel or optional three-speed Turbo Hydra-matic 350 automatic, which was standard equipment with the two 350 four-barrel engines. This transmission completely replaced the old two-speed automatic offered with the smaller base engines in past years, while the 455 was paired with the Turbo Hydra-matic 400. Buick now joined other GM divisions in marketing the automatic transmission under the Turbo Hydra-matic trade name rather than the "Super Turbine" designation used since 1964. This vehicle is located in our Milwaukee showroom. You can view this 1970 Buick Le Sabre in greater detail including HD pictures and an HD video of it running and driving at Gatewayclassiccars.com.

1984 Buick Grand National

1984 Buick Grand National


Engine: 3.8L V6
Transmission: 3-Speed Automatic
Mileage: 34,801 ( undocumented )

Gateway Classic Cars of Orlando is proud to present this rare 1984 Buick Grand National. By the late 1980’s, the muscle car era was done. The gas crisis caused the end of high horsepower V8s and the few domestic muscle cars that remained were so strangled with emissions equipment, that the horsepower ratings were embarrassing. Even the Corvettes of the late 1980’s barely squeaked over 200 horsepower. GM made a step in the right direction with their revolutionary Turbocharged V6 Grand National. This 3.8 Liter gem, with the help of its turbocharger churns out 245 horsepower and a massive 355 lb. ft of torque. This torque monster could rocket the 3500-pound GN to 60 miles per hour in less than 6 seconds and on to finish a 1/4 mile in about 14 seconds. Finished in a sinister gloss black exterior paint, and with gray and black two-tone interior, the GN is a sharp looking beast as well. This one is in great shape and will turn heads wherever you go. Whether you're a Buick fan, a muscle car historian, or simply a fan of performance cars, a Grand Nation makes a great addition to any collection. This 1984 Buick Grand National is for sale in our Orlando Showroom and can be seen in greater detail including 100+ HD pictures and an HD video at www.GatewayClassicCars.com.

1963 Buick Riviera

1963 Buick Riviera


Engine: 401 V8
Transmission: 2 Speed Automatic
Mileage: 77,565 ( actual )

Gateway Classic Cars of Tampa Is proud to offer this sharp 1963 Buick Riviera. This car still has the numbers matching engine and transmission with only 78k miles! 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. This Buick was repainted about 2 years ago but kept the factory color. The Burgundy paint, chrome accent pieces, and glass is all still in great condition and looks as it has been redone. The style of this era’s body style is top notch and has tons of potential to become whatever you can dream up or even keep it as it sits and enjoy the history. When you hop into this Buick you instantly notice the like new brown leather interior. The styling of the dash and shifter area brings out the luxury feel while cruising down the street in this sharp car. It shared the standard Buick V8 engines, with a displacement of either 401 cu in (6.57 L) or 425 cu in (6.96 l), and the unique continuously variable design twin turbine automatic transmission. Power brakes were standard, using Buick's massive "Al-Fin" (aluminum finned) drums of 12 in (300 mm) diameter. Power steering was standard equipment, with an overall steering ratio of 20.5:1, giving 3.5 turns lock-to-lock. The production Riviera was introduced on October 4, 1962, as a 1963 model, Its distinctive bodyshell was unique to the marque, unusual for a GM product. It rode a cruciform frame similar to the standard Buick frame, but shorter and narrower, with a 2.0 in narrower track. Its wheelbase of 117 in and overall length of 208 in were 6.0 inches and 7.7 in shorter, respectively, than a Buick LeSabre, but slightly longer than a contemporary Thunderbird. At 3,998 lb, it was about 390 pounds lighter than either. This First Generation Riviera has been well maintained and is ready to be taken out and shown off to the world.

1960 Buick LeSabre

1960 Buick LeSabre


Engine: 364 CID V8
Transmission: 3 Speed Manual
Mileage: 39,361 ( undocumented )

Gateway Classic Cars of Detroit is proud to be able to offer this sleek 1960 Buick LeSabre. This beautiful machine has received a nice restoration and is ready to hit route 66 for a cross country cruise. The 1960 LeSabre received a major facelift, the new body design sharing only the roof and trunk lid with the 1959 model. The new Buick now sported a concave grille and horizontal headlights centered by Buick's then-new "Tri-Shield" logo, which is still in use today. Reintroduced to Electras and other Buicks for 1960 were the chrome "VentiPort" portholes first introduced in 1940 and last seen in 1957. LeSabre and Invicta models had three portholes while Electras and Electra 225s were "four-holers". Inside, a revised instrument panel featured a "Mirromatic" speedometer for which the lens could be adjusted to better visibility to suit the driver. A new two-spoke steering wheel with horn bars was introduced, replacing the time-honored horn ring then still common to most automobiles. The 250- and 300-horsepower 364-cubic-inch V8s were continued from 1959, but a new no-cost option was a 235-horsepower lower-compression two-barrel version of the 364 with a lower compression ratio to permit use of regular-grade gasoline instead of the premium fuel required with all other Buick engines. This Buick two door hard top is in fantastic shape inside and out. The crazy stylish Chalet Blue interior and exterior is completely redone to feel fresh and in like new condition. The paint shines in the sun with chrome all over the body makes this car very sharp and turns heads anywhere that it goes. The real fun is with the 3 on the tree manual transmission. This car starts right up and runs like a dream. To see 100+ HD pictures and videos of this 1960 Buick LeSabre two door hardtop, please visit GatewayClassicCars.com.

Buick's factory rating for their 350 CID V8 was listed 280 horsepower; so, no doubt this one has upped the ante.

Sticking out at shows, this Buick Skylark Custom convertible for sale is a solid example befitting Buick's catch phrase "The Distinctive Personal Car for Americana on the GO." Backing the healthy 350 is a 200R4 4-speed automatic transmission, and a set of Equus gauges and tach help the driver keep tabs on the drivetrain. Add in power steering and power brakes and you have yourself one comfortable ride. The exterior is a driver quality shade of Metallic Blue. Paired with a black convertible top, it's easy to see that this car was born during the muscle car era! The 17" chromed aluminum Ridler 5 spoke wheels are wrapped in 245/45-ZR17 Toyo Extensa HP radial at all 4 corners. Make your way into the cockpit, and you'll feel like you've been taken back in time. White vinyl adorns the front and rear bench seats, with the rest of the interior done in black, providing a nice contrast.
