  1. It is relisted http://www.ebay.com/itm/1969-Buick-Riviera-One-Family-Survivor-Time-Capsule-Fully-Loaded-Mint-/232341029986?hash=item36189ac462:g:FUkAAOSwCQZZFPVg&vxp=mtr
  2. Looks like the auction got cancelled early or something, and now it is relisted with a $15,500 buy it now.... http://www.ebay.com/itm/232338224590?_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT I asked the seller how long he had owned it and his reply: I have only owned the car for a few months. I am selling it because I just purchased a new house and have to put some money into it. I purchased the car from the original family. To which I replied: Then it was you that had it on craigslist less than two weeks ago? I got the impression that was the original owner's family that was selling it when I spoke with them? HE HAS NOT REPLIED TO MY LAST MESSAGE.........
  3. I asked the seller when the car was repainted and why it wasn't in the notes. He said his friend bought the car thinking it was original paint, but one of the bidders (respected Riviera restorer) told him that the area around the trunk latch and the catch that should've been bare metal and their painted, so the bidder told him it must be a repaint. Seller says he can't find any evidence of a repaint. Hmmm........ Thoughts from others who have dealt with original 66's?
  4. I resemble that remark, lol! Although of the 8 Buicks I currently own, only two were purchased in WA State.
  5. Price reduced to $19,500. https://sfbay.craigslist.org/sby/cto/6133126530.html
  6. I have asked him how long he has owned it and whether he is part of the "single family" that has owned it, no response yet. That being said, by looking at his feedback (fairly frequent seller of cars), the location of photos (there was another Riv for sale a year or two ago photographed in the same spot), the name of the person listing it on CL and the ad and photos they included, I am 99% sure it is not the same owner. CL AD: 1969 Buick Riviera All original 430 cubic inch motor 104,000 actual miles All accessories Re-painted to original color Great condition Connie

It was on CL last week for $10,500 obo, I am thinking this guy bought it and cleaned it up and put it on eBay with a much better ad and photos, and the marketplace looks to be rewarding him for his efforts. If anyone is seriously interested in the car and wants to speak to the previous owner, I saved their phone number from the CL ad.
  8. Or, The owner just left the first digit off (8) when he recorded the mileage, and then when the mileage turned over the new digit (9), he wrote it down, and continued just writing 4 digits until it turned again. I do something similar in my checkbook log, I only write down the last two digits of the check instead of all 4, and then write down 3 digits when I get to a new third digit. More likely though it is a misprint, and should be 9,145.0, which would be 68 miles in the two week time span. I have asked for photos of the log book back to when the car was new, hopefully this will help us solve this!

  10. Car guy, I look at appreciate most all makes and models, but gravitate towards primarily Buicks as I feel I know their values better. Hard to keep current on everything. Definitely not mechanically inclined. Collection is ever changing, here are my current old rides.
  11. Congrats on a nice car! I am in Kent WA, where are you located? Chris
  12. Drove two this weekend. Took my 70 GS455 convertible over to a friend's house who has a 70 GS455 coupe that he bought brand new in 1969, and we found a nice winding road and took turns driving each other's car. Was a blast, and a nice way to spend a couple of hours on a Sunday!
