Now for sale in our Houston Showroom is this 1972 Buick Riviera “Boattail”. This model of Riviera was only available from ’71-’73 landing this right in the middle. This beauty is hard to be mistaken for any other typical classic and features a very similar rear window to the C2 Corvette.

This mafia looking monster is powered by what’s believed to be the original 455 CID V8 and paired up to a 3-speed automatic transmission. The transmission had all new seals installed back in September of 2017 by AutoCheck to include the front pump seal, shaft seal, speedo seal, all exterior seals, trans filter and a pan gasket. This beauty came from the factory with the dual exhaust and makes for a great driver. After going through an extensive restoration roughly 10 years ago, this car is still in good condition. Some of the restoration work included a new steering box, new 4 row radiator, A/C compressor, new brakes, new master cylinder, and even a repaint done by Rosehill Paint and Body. To ensure a stable ride, the pitman arms, tie rod ends, and bearing were also replaced. The car has plenty of documentation and receipts dating when the work was done, so it leaves with a good history of this beast. In all the receipts alone total out to around $20,000 should this car has been well cared for through the years.

Walking around the car you will find a few blemishes but nothing preventing the car from being a weekend driver. The car was originally painted green from the factory, but the black really gives the car an aggressive mafia feel to it.

The interior of the car is in good condition with no major rips or tears. There is minor cracking in the dash but nothing that could be fixed easily. The classic features all the comforts of your modern vehicles such as power windows, power seats, cold blowing A/C, and power locks. This car has been driven 350 miles just in the past 2 months per the owner and there have been no issues with overheating or concern for reliability. Other options include power steering, power brakes, AM/FM stereo, and functioning clock.
