Car description

BEAUTIFUL 1965 BUICK RIVIERA GRAN SPORT TRIBUTE WITH DUAL QUADS & ALUMINUM FINNED VALVE COVERS.

I PURCHASED THIS CAR IN 2011. I SAVED IT FROM A VERY LONG STORAGE IN A MICHIGAN BARN. IT HADN'T BEEN REGISTERED SINCE 1982.BUT TO THE OWNERS CREDIT, E DID START IT AND YARD DRIVE IT PERIODICALLY. HE WAS THE 2ND OWNER OF THE CAR & CLAIMED THE MILEAGE WAS CORRECT. BUT SHOWED NO PROOF OF IT. THE PAINT WAS VERY DULL. BUT IT ONLY HAD SOME MINOR RUST IN THE LOWER REAR 1/4'S. WHICH I HAD PROPERLY REPAIRED PRIOR TO PAINT.

THE LT CODE 401ci NAILHEAD RUNS STRONG! MILD CAM, LUMINUM VALVE COVERS & DUAL QUADS (WITH RECHROMED AIR CLEANER)WERE INSTALLED IN 2012. NO LEAKS. NO ISSUES. 4 NEW WHEEL CYLINDERS, LL 4 DRUMS TURNED & NEW FRONT BRAKE HOSESIN 2014.

REPAINTED IN 2013. PPG BASE COAT CLEAR COAT WAS USED. IT CAME OUT VERY NICE! IT IS STRAIGHT AS AN ARROW & HAS A MIRROR LIKE FINISH.BOTH BUMPERS WERE RECHROMEDAT THAT TIME.

IN 2014 IINSTALLED A NEW HEADLINER, AIL PANELS, EAR SHELF PANEL &FRONT SEATS WERE REUPHOLSTERED. I PLANNED TO KEEP THIS CAR FOR A WHILE. SO I DECIDED TO MAKE MYSELF AMILD CUSTOMGRAN SPORT THE WAY I WANTED IT. SINCE I'M NOT A BIG FAN OF WOODGRAIN. I CHOSE TO CHANGE THE INTERIORWOODGRAIN TO CARBON FIBER.

THE CAR STARTS UP EASILY, UNS GREAT & DRIVES STRAIGHT! THE REAR MUFFLER WAS REMOVED & IS RUNNING ON THE TWO SMALLER RESONATOR MUFFLERS. I DID THIS TO GIVE IT A DEEP THROATYTONE. I THINK IT SOUNDS GREAT!

I HAD THE CLAMSHELL VISORS SODA BLASTED WHEN THE CAR WAS BEING PAINTED. BUT MADE THE MISTAKE OF USING A PAINT PEN TO REFINISH THEM. AFTER A FEW WASHES MOST OF THE PAINT WASHED OFF. YOU CAN SEE THAT IN THE PHOTOS.

ITEMS THAT WILL NEED ATTENTION.

THE HEADLAMP MOTOR HAS BEEN PULLED & NEEDS TO BE REBUILT (OR CONVERTED TO NEWER STYLE MOTORS TO OPEN THEHEADLAMP DOORS). THE CLAMSHELLS OPEN & CLOSE MANUALLY VERY EASILY.

THE LEFT TURN SIGNAL DOES NOT CANCEL. SO YOU HAVE TO MANUALLY CANCEL IT.

THE POWER DRIVER SEAT STOPPED WORKING EARLIER THIS YEAR.

ALL 4 POWER WINDOW MOTORS WORK. BUT THE RIGHT REAR NEEDS TO BE ADJUSTED. SEEMS TO HAVE GONE OFF TRACK. BUT IS SITTING IN THE CLOSED POSITION WITH NO ISSUE.

THE A/C COMPRESSOR & CONDENSERWERE REMOVED. BUT WILL BE INCLUED IN THE SALE. I KEPT THE COMPRESSOR OFF BECAUSE IT BLOCKED THE VALVE COVERS. I LIKE THE WAY IT LOOKS BETTER WITHOUT IT.

ORIGINAL RADIO WORKS BUT NEEDS NEW SPEAKERS. I PLANNED TO UPDATE THE AUDIO SYSTEM BUT NEVER GOT AROUND TO IT. SO THAT WILL BE LEFT UP TO THE NEW OWNER.

YES, HIS CAR COULD USE A FEW THINGS. BUT NOTHING THAT TAKES AWAY FROM IT'S BEAUTY. IT'S NOT A #1 SHOW CAR. BUT IT ISA GREAT CAR THAT YOU CAN GET IN & DRIVE TO LOCALCRUISE NIGHTS PROUDLY. SO WITH ALL THINGS CONSIDERED.I BELIEVE IHAVE PRICED IT QUITE FAIRLY. I BELIEVE THE NEXT OWNER WILL BE VERY HAPPY WITH THIS CAR.

MORE PHOTOSCAN BE MADEAVAILABLE. THERE ARE ALSO2 VIDEOS OF IT ON YouTube.

I'M HAPPY TO ANSWER ALL SERIOUS QUESTIONS. I CAN ASSIST WITH ANY INSPECTIONS & SHIPPING AT THE BUYERS EXPENSE. I CAN ALSO RECOMMEND A TRANSPORT BROKER THAT I'VE USED IN THE PAST.

PLEASE ASK ALL QUESTIONS & HAVE FUNDS AVAILABLE BEFORE MAKING AN OFFER. PLEASE DO NOT MAKE AN OFFER UNLESS YOU ARE READY TO MAKE THIS PURCHASE. I'M SELLING THIS CAR DUE TO LOSS OF EMPLOYMENT. SO ALL REASONABE OFFERS WILL BE CONSIDERED.

THANK YOU FOR VIEWING.
