Classic Car Overview

This 1971 Buick Riviera is one of the most daring designs put to sheet metal. So when it retains its big V8 and its premium features, and also offers a custom appearance, it creates one of the best all-around classics... and its available right now for a terrific price. This car knows how to make an entrance. The pointed front end is even more pronounced because theres a special split front bumper to really show off this cars style. Theres a design line that starts here and flows outward on the long hood until it melts with the door line. The rear fenders have one of the sportiest kick-ups ever given to a car. And it all flows toward the back where you have curved glass that reminds us of the C2 Corvette Sting Ray. And we all love how the edges of the rear taper inward to draw even more attention to the special boat tail rear. The bumper is even color-matched for added distinction. This was born a green coupe, but the lighter green vinyl top was added later for a cool sense of style. Its all a driver-quality package, and thats because this is a driver-ready coupe. After all, the salt flat style wheels not only look good, but the 20-inch size means you get to fit a nice set of modern performance tires. Theres more green that awaits you inside. It goes with the exterior paint and roof to give you a cool triple-green package that makes for a distinctive 1970s cruiser. The button-top seats have a great period-correct look, and theres plenty of wood-like trim on the doors and dash. So it truly feels like a classic American. Another great trait of a vintage Buick is plenty of room for family and friends. But all you need to do is fold down the front armrest to remind you this is a personal luxury cruiser. That means nice extras like power windows, a tilt steering column, and power seats. You even have factory air conditioning and the Delco AM/FM radio there for display. You can service these two items to have them function again, but for now, they really complete the cool/classic feeling inside. And because Buick gave you the sporty machine-turned gauge panel, we like the subtle sporty upgrades like the three-spoke sports steering wheel and billet shift lever. Under the hood is the bold red block of the massive 455 cubic-inch V8. We have paperwork documenting a powerful rebuild of the motor in 2004 that includes an Isky camshaft, a bore .030 over kit, upgraded rods, and topped with an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor. It makes for a strong motor thats also supported by nice updates like an HEI distributor and a Champion aluminum radiator. Youll really enjoy taking this Riviera out on the town because the TH400 three-speed automatic transmission is known for being both stout and smooth. Plus, theres power steering, power brakes, front discs, and ZR-rated tires. This is a classic coupe with a big V8 and a striking design. Its a package that youd expect to pay a ton more to get, so you know this deal will be going fast. Call today!!!
