Now for sale in our Milwaukee showroom is this beautiful 1965 Buick Riviera. A great driver, you will love the classic luxury appeal that this bright red Riviera with white interior will bring. You will enjoy the power windows and tilt steering wheel, and the comfort of driving with power steering and brakes. The white wall tires and rally wheels give the car that sporty look as well. This Riviera is powered by a 401 Cubic inch V8 engine, coupled to a 3-speed automatic transmission.

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. It shared the standard Buick V8 engines, with a displacement of either 401 cu in or 425 cu in, 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 diameter. Power steering was standard equipment, with an overall steering ratio of 20.5:1, giving 3.5 turns lock-to-lock.

The Riviera's suspension used Buick's standard design, with double wishbones up front and a live axle located by trailing arms and a lateral track bar in the rear, but the roll centers were raised to reduce body lean. Although its coil springs were actually slightly softer than other Buicks, the Riviera's lighter weight made its ride somewhat firmer. While still biased towards understeer, contemporary testers considered it one of the most driveable American cars, with an excellent balance of comfort and agility.

The elegant ground-up styling sported new "Coke bottle styling", with the middle of the body exhibiting a tapered tucked-in appearance. There was no trace of the "Sweepspear" used on beltlines of earlier Buicks with the Riviera package,

Our Detroit Showroom is proud to offer a gorgeous 1969 Buick Riviera. Upon its high-profile debut into the automotive market, the Riviera was meant to take the automotive industry by storm, and it did just that. This vehicle received praises from just about everybody that laid eyes on these beautifully designed Buicks. For 1967, Buick introduced a very significant engine into the line-up which replaced the previous 425CID "Nailhead" V8. The new and improved 430CID 7.0L V8, which pumped out a very impressive 360 horsepower and a whopping 475-pound feet of torque, was its replacement. All this power was catered through its Turbo-Hydramatic TH-400 3-Speed Automatic Transmission which shifts beautifully. The 430 CID V8 in this ‘69 Buick runs great and sounds even better. The dramatic coat of high gloss Gold paint gives this Riviera a menacing look with the Black Vinyl top and does a great job of making all the chrome trim on the vehicle pop. This beautiful machine rests comfortably on a set of Original Buick Wheels with radial tires. This Riviera has all the attributes of a great personal luxury car such as; Air Conditioning, Power Steering, Power Brakes, Power windows, Power seats, Tilt Wheel, and a Black Vinyl interior in very good condition.

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.
