In 1950 Buick produced its very first Riviera, a 2-door hardtop. What a beauty even before its restoration. Now you are looking at a street legal creation that exceeds all expectations. This beauty began its rebuild journey as a garage kept, family jewel in western Kansas.

From day one everything was planned to very well with no short cuts, and no expense spared. The powerplant is a 496-crate motor with a Weiand 872 mega blower. The base engine dyno'd at 520HP and according to Weiand the 871 BBC mega blower puts on out about 200HP to that. So, you will be sitting at the top of roughly 750 horse. It is exciting as you will see once the beauty becomes yours. Driving a machine with a blower does require some adjustment space and alignment everywhere, in decided subframe both the front and the rear. The front end is a late model SS Camaro and the rear setup is 4 Bar with strange axles and mosey assembly. Of course, this beauty has all the cool stuff too. Power steering, power brakes, Power windows, AC, and more . The Carson top is hand made from tubular and rolled aluminum with a chop. The cooling system is from a late model chevy dually pickup (7.4L) with double bypass. The AC is vintage air. The seats are Lincoln Continental. The interior and trunks are ultra-leather with asolid headliner. The wheels are Budnick. The rear tires are MT Sportsman. This dream car has less than 500 miles driven. There is nothing else that can make this better than it is. I hope that you will love and enjoy this car as much as its previous owner has.
