This classic car was developed during a time when personal luxury vehicles were all the rage.
Made from 1963 through to 1999, the Buick Riviera was quite the splash with people looking to enter the personal luxury segment, without breaking the bank. It was the first attempt by General Motors to sell a vehicle in the segment, and received high praise from consumers and automotive professionals alike. Examples like this 1964 Buick Riviera are well preserved callouts of that era, and it’s available for your collection through Zephyrhills Classic Car Auction.
The body shell of the Riviera was distinctive to the model, which was an unusual move for GM at the time. Its coke bottle appearance was first seen on the earlier Studebaker Avanti. It rode on standard Buick suspension and came with power brakes.
Moving the wheels of this Gold Mist coated personal luxury Buick is a massive 425 cubic inch engine, dubbed the Wildcat 465 with 4bbl carbs. Backing the huge V8 is a 3-Speed Super Turbine 400 automatic transmission. There are only 88,495 miles on the clock, so this classic Buick has plenty of miles left in it. Add this Buick Riviera to your classic GM collection, or buy it to use as a stylish daily driver.
This Buick Riviera will be sold during the Zephyrhills Classic Car Auction October 29-30. Vendors will also be on site. Please visit https://www.zhillsclassiccarauction.com for more information and to see additional vehicles for sale.
