Arguably the most attractive design of the early 1960s the 1963 Buick Riviera transformed the automotive landscape forever. Instantly recognizable yet restrained it's an iconic machine that is finally getting its due from collectors. Sorry guys the days of getting a good one for ten grand are long gone so you're better off spending a little extra for a good one. This one wears Arctic White which does nothing to diminish the Riv's awesome good looks. In fact the beautifully-applied paint hugs straight bodywork that's in great condition and is just as dramatic today as it was fifty years ago. Fit and finish are good all around with doors that show even gaps and a big pointed hood that latches without being slammed. The soft shine of the paint is entirely appropriate to the period and the finish is only three years old so it'll look this good for years to come with minimal maintenance. The '63s offer four round headlights with parking lights in the outboard pods that eventually housed hidden headlights and for many the purity of the design works quite well either way. Nice chrome bumpers are probably original and while they show a few signs of age re-chroming them would be a mistake. And nothing looks better than GM Soft-Ray tinted glass on a luxury cruiser from the '60s. If the exterior is gorgeous the interior is simply stunning. The pinnacle of 1960s styling the all-new Custom interior is called Champagne and offers correct cloth inserts in the seats that were supplied SMS Auto Fabrics who really know their stuff. Real woof veneer is found on the console and door panels while the center console is a work of industrial art that would be at home in a period architect's studio. Two-tone steering wheel gorgeous gauges that look like high-end clock faces and a shifter that's like sculpture all create one of the most spectacular interiors of the decade. The power window motors were replaced and even the power vent windows with their original motors work properly. Other options include factory A/C a power antenna an AM/FM radio six-way power driver's seat and a tilt steering column. The headliner is original and is nice enough to work with the otherwise freshly restored interior and even the trunk was correctly freshened with a correct mat full-sized spare jack and new cardboard side pieces. Buick's 401 cubic inch Nailhead V8 was a formidable performer in the mid-sized Riviera and with massive torque behind it this elegant coupe was probably able to surprise some fairly hot cars back in the day. The engine bay was recently detailed and looks great with a big red air cleaner needing only a decal installed (included with the car) and a silver engine underneath. It's pretty tightly packed in the Riviera's engine bay but the new stuff includes a rebuilt carburetor generator new battery rebuilt water pump new timing chain and cover a new wiper motor and a recent tune-up so it's ready to enjoy. The Turbine-Drive automatic transmission delivers a seamless flow of torque and with highway-friendly gears you'll be astounded by how effortlessly this Riv gathers momentum. The underside features rebuilt brakes a new exhaust system with correct transverse muffler and attractive wire wheels with whitewall radials. Still beautiful still a joy to drive and still appreciating now is the time to indulge your long-held desire for an early Riviera. Call today! This vehicle is located in our Atlanta showroom.
