Car description

1985 Buick Riviera T-Type, 3.8L SFI V6, Auto, Loaded,
Fully Rebuilt Engine

Rare 2 Year Only Riviera. One of only 1,060 Built. None Left!
This week Canyon State Classic brings to market a once in a lifetime opportunity for any true Buick gear head or collector. This 1985 Buick Riviera T-Type is a 2 owner, 85,000mi, California Car. In 1985 64,000 Buick Rivera's were produced. Of that only 1,069 were T-Types or about 1.6%. These cars are getting harder and harder to find especially with these low miles and all original gorgeous condition. 1985 was the LAST YEAR and "THE END" of the Ultra Luxury Big Buick Riviera Story -- downsized from 1986 on. Same sister car of the Cadillac Eldorado and the Oldsmobile Toronado -- but a heck of a lot more sexy!
The following is a list of options as this Riviera is currently equipped:
-Buick 3.8L SFI 6cyl Turbo
-4spd Automatic Transmission
-Power Steering
-Power Brakes
-Factory Air Conditioning
-Factory AM/FM Radio
-Power Antenna
-Power Windows
-Power Seat
-Buick Rally Wheels
The exterior on the car is in very good condition and is 100% solid, straight, and totally rust free. The car still looks wears its original color of Light Sandstone Metallic and looks great. The chrome and stainless trim is original and in very good condition and were all professionally cleaned and detailed. All glass is crack and chip free (Original Windshield), and all of the rubber seals are excellent throughout. This car is a true time capsule, there is no other way to describe it.
The tan velour interior is 100% all original and looks great! The seats are in excellent shape with no rips or ware at all. The wood Riviera inlay on the dash is original and looks great. All of the interior chrome and window trim are very nice with no pitting or rust. Dash has a few cracks and has been covered by a custom dash mat. All of the gauges, turn signals work correctly.
Mechanically, this Riviera runs great. The motor runs great and is all correct and numbers matching. Buick paired high compression 3.8L motor with a Turbocharger and a legend was born. The motor runs very good and the trans shifts flawlessly. The car has always been well maintained and has $7000 in recent receipts to document maintenance history. Fresh Long Block rebuild, belts, hoses, tune-up, and brakes were all done and checked when the car came out of storage. The car is tight as a drum and doesn't leak a drop of anything!
The engine compartment was also just fully detailed, but not repainted or altered. The correct decals are all in place as well as the original hood insulation. The factory A/C still blows ice cold even after 8 years of storage. You know this system is tight and leak free!
The car is riding on classic Buick 15" T-Type turbine wheels and white wall radials which look luxurious. They look really good on this car and fit excellent with the look of the car. The trunk compartment is very clean and original and looks awesome. The original jack, stand, and spare are all present. Includes factory chassis manuals to keep this bad boy on the road for years to come.
