Recommended Posts

First let me say a hello to all of you. My question is

I recently purchased a 1975 Buick Riviera from an old couple. Its

a 1 owner car and it looks like its been repainted at some point.

I am planning on restoring the car but need to know the original

paint that was on the car. Only info I have is the VIN which is


If anyone can help with finding this information I would

appreciate it .

Typically the vin number does not have that info, what ya need is the name plate. I think its located on the firewall driver's side of the car, but I am not sure.

Adam is correct about the data plate. That being said, there is some information that can be gleaned from the VIN.

4 = Buick

Z = Riviera

87 = 2 door hardtop

T = 455 V8 4-bbl

5 = 1975

H = Flint, MI assembly plant

The remainder is the sequential production number of the car.
