Description:
1967 Buick Riviera Buick is a modern luxury brand offering vehicles with sculpted designs, luxurious interiors with thoughtful personal technologies, along with responsive-yet-efficient performance. For the bosses and bankers, most muscle cars were for kids. If you wanted performance and style, and you could pay the premium, you could find yourself in the seat or this 1967 Buick Riviera. With super fly styling, hidden headlights and angled in corners for the front, and a sexy angled rear window, vinyl top, and Coke bottle design, along with the luxury interior and high performance, you have arrived! Exterior Inspired by Bill Mitchell\'s love of hand-built London coaches, the second generation Riviera features a classy body shell that conveys a sense of style and sophistication perfectly befitting its exotic name. The incredible shell you see here, a stunning Riviera silver survivor, wears completely original aesthetics that have been exceptionally maintained. Consistently providing its various owners with rock-solid reliability and a sense of custom-tailored comfort, the car has never been separated from its chassis. Original chrome and stainless, which exhibit minimal signs of wear, show almost as well as the day they left the dealership. Presently, this Buick\'s desirability as something that\'s as rare as it is unique is both genuine and fitting. Gone is the boxy look that overtook most comparable models of the era, and sleek sexy design overwhelms the viewer. Standard Buick rally wheels are on all 4 corners, and chrome trimmings are beautiful, definitely a shower and a goer. Interior Swinging the doors and we have a fine mix of smooth shiny black vinyl covering molded armrests and wide insets of chrome and polished aluminum trimmings. Housed here are the window toggles, seat adjusters, and mirror joystick. Plenty of power conveniences befitting the luxury feel of the exterior, but still maintaining its sporty styling. A low back black vinyl bench seat with tuck and roll stitching and a large central armrest are noted for the front passengers. The rear has a luxurious bench in matching style to the front bench that stretches comfortably from door to door and includes a centrally located speaker in the upper. The original black angled dash has all the correct and looking good instrumentation, and controls, as well as the string wheel from the factory. Black carpeting for the floors and a black headliner is above. Drivetrain Under-hood is the original 430ci V8, topped with a 4-barrel carburetor. An automatic Super Turbine 400 3-speed transmission is on back, and spins a 3.07 rear axle, and all is looking very original in this bay. Undercarriage Let\'s use the word spiffy to describe the underside. All rust free, black surfaces and solid outer frame construction with an added X frame in the center. Independent front suspension, and a 4 link with coil springs for the rear provide the ride. A clean rust free exhaust and no leaks seen on this super-fly. Drive-Ability A quick starter, and after a warm up it was off to the test track, where me and my cohort both took turns driving, and looking like a million bucks. Snappy acceleration, bias free panic braking. We noticed the air conditioning blows warm and the rear power windows would not work from any control position. A good time was had on this test drive. This Riviera is a phenomenal classic. Its killer Wildcat V8 will cruise effortlessly at will, and its slick body and first class interior are ready to garner serious stares. With plenty of GS models around, this rare item is now here in our halls. When survivor is added to the mix, you\'re treading pretty deep into one-of-a-kind territory.
