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, This 1965 Riviera is for sale in our Milwaukee Showroom and can be seen at www.GatewayClassicCars.com; call (262) 891-4253 or email us at milwaukee@gatewayclassiccars.com for additional information.
