  1. Hey Alex, Well, I would rather just collect more, but I currently have 4 Rivieras (5 in counting a family original 64 that is all in pieces currently). Basically I am paying storage fees and need to restore the other Rivieras, so it is hard to justify as of now to keep them all. I was going to start high on eBay/Hemmings ($16-$17K) with the asking price, but I am reasonable and would take an offer to RoA member for a lower price. I started writing up the ad: Factory Triple Green Original Numbers Matching California Black Plate 1967 Buick Riviera History First purchased from Smythe Buick Dealership in San Jose California, with currently under 75K miles shown on the odometer, still maintains the numbers matching drive train and DMV issued Black License Plate (UYH730). The stunning H code Green Mist metallic paint is complemented by both deluxe interior (610-D) and vinyl top in Green (9). This vehicle was the 32,242 Riviera off the production line in the 3rd week of May in 1967 out of 42,799 total made that year. Options The well optioned vehicle comes with factory AM/FM stereo radio with front/rear speakers and electric antenna, power steering, power windows, deluxe 6-way power bench seats, door guards, original air conditioner (recently charged), chrome plated wheels, large power drum breaks, remote outside rear view mirror, and automatic trunk release (also comes with rare chromed green floor mat official Buick accessory). The vehicle now sports an automatic (non-factory) fuel pump and is factory equip with the desirable 3.07 gear ratio differential allowing for more miles per gallon of fuel and higher top end speeds. All around soft-ray tinted glass makes a big difference while driving. A set of NOS and in box trico wiper blades also comes with the vehicle along with protect-o-plate and owners manual. Condition The interior has been reupholstered, newer headliner, exterior repainted, and redone vinyl since original. The trunk is in excellent condition with original jack, original spare wheel/tire, and original material. The numbers matching rare California A.I.R. four barrel Rochester carburetor has just recently been fully rebuilt and BEAUTIFULLY restored by Americas top quadrajet expert "Sparky." The vehicle is always garage kept while not in use.

  2. Here is my 67 with H code paint (Green Mist) and 9 for green vinyl.
  3. Thanks Mike. Fortunately or unfortunately I will be putting it up for sale soon. Probably eBay? not sure... Very hard to let go of these vehicles that become part of the family.
  4. Not mine. Well documented. https://www.ebay.com/itm/1969-Buick-Riviera/282735589548?hash=item41d45ab8ac:g:ui8AAOSwSQFaDNHt&vxp=mtr
  5. Not Mine. https://www.ebay.com/itm/1969-Buick-Riviera/202114322219?hash=item2f0ef3cf2b:g:77MAAOSwdW9aC51i&vxp=mtr
  6. Green Mist (Code H). So it is essentially a triple green 67. Very Moody paint. The metal flake and clear coat make it come to life through levels of light spectrum. Sometimes it looks more silver, sometimes firmest medium blue/green tealish, sometimes metallic cash money green, always hot! I don't think this color was readily available on year 66 (sea-foam H not aviable on 66 Rivieras). This vehicle has been repainted and probably has a slight variation from factory exact matching, but I like it as is.
  7. O...Im sorry, I mean a picture of one for the price of a real Riviera! https://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-Original-Buick-Riviera-Concept-Car-Art-John-Gable-render-Sketch-Drawing/253242487182?hash=item3af66db18e:g:QvwAAOSwJtdZ-PGO
  8. 65 Boattail

    Im working on a project that will combine a 67, 71, and 65, plus some of the original concept AND silver arrow features. Hopefully the funding will be sufficient to get er done. And yes, a horseshoe shifter. Guess what the car will be called? CHIMERA!
