From the ROA Members Access Only Hot Classifieds:

 

1968, GS, red, restored, excellent condition Bergan Co. NJ

There is a CL at the end of the listing which maybe stands for Craigslist? A quick search of New Jersey CL does not return any 68's for sale. (there is a nice 83 convertible in CT though!) :-)

Hi Mike - thanks for the note . Already have a 69 GS with buckets   but will see if I can track down the red one from the classifieds . There one out there somewhere . Love your car - the color is spectacular . Is it a bucket seat car?  Are you going to ROA. In KC ?  Thanks for thinking of me .

Ken, 

 

No we are not attending this year. Hopefully next year's event will be closer to home. 

Ours is a Strato Bench seat.

Nice 68 GS in the popular Inca Silver Mist.

 

You would want to see the PY stamp on the drivers side differential tube to make sure of Factory GS without docs.

 

In picking apart: Wrong placement GS emblem on grill (looks good anyway), modified speakers, odd radio, trunks needs restoration, air cleaner top not chromed, priced rich.

 

It does have the vacuum trunk release though! Most underestimatedly cool accessory.

 

tell em to take around $7K off and you will think about it. Hehehe.

Not sure if this is a true GS or not. It doesn't have a chrome air cleaner lid but does have BS and console. Custom stereo and speakers in the doors are not my cup of tea but at least there are no speakers in the rear arm rests or package shelf.

Thanks Mike  - saw that one a  few days ago .  Agree with your assessment . Exhaust looks a little funky too. . Gonna pass as I have not had a good experience with Gateway in the past  .

Have you been able to look at the one going up for auction in Maine? The two pictures I saw seem to indicate that may be a nice car. Looking forward to hearing more about it (and seeing pictures too!). Good luck.

 I contacted the owner and asked for a few pictures but he said they would be posted on the auction house site soon so I made waiting to see those . Thanks for all your help - there's one out there somewhere !

Thanks. I think your opinion of my car would change if you saw the underside! :(

The Maine car doesn't appear to be in bad shape. Just not an exciting color nor a BS/console car. :wacko:

I thought that the dual antennae on the rear might light a fire for you.   😎

 

Not a BCA member so "No" I won't be going.

Yeh the dual antenna put the fire out - needed to look no  further .

1968 Buick Riviera GS - $12700

Bucket with console and early production Deluxe interior. Non-chrome air cleaner lid though. :-\

The pictures are dated 2016, which may not be an issue.
