Vehicle Description

This Buick Riviera is one you’ll want to see and definitely one you’d love to drive. Powered by the Super Wildcat 425 cubic inch V8 making 340 HP and outfitted with a more aggressive 3.42 axle ratio and stiffer, heavy-duty suspension. The stock dual exhaust pipes were increased from 2.0 inches (51 mm) to 2.25 inches (57 mm) inside diameter and had fewer turns to reduce back pressure. Externally, the headlamps, now vertically arranged, were hidden behind clamshell doors in the edges of each fender. This car had placed its foot into the luxury brand world with this model with the sleek exterior designs and it didn’t stop inside the car. The Riviera featured a luxurious four-place cabin with front bucket seats and bucket-style seats in the rear. A center console with floor shifter and storage compartment built into the instrument panel divided the front. This car came with it all especially for a car from the 60’s, it’s still impressive to think of the engineering and design that went into this car. It has since earned Milestone status from the Milestone Car Society. Jaguar founder and designer Sir William Lyons remarked that Mitchell had done "a very wonderful job," and Sergio Pininfarina declared it "one of the most beautiful American cars ever built.
