'65 Sells at Mecum for $25K Today

Here's the link: 1965 Buick Riviera 2-Door 401 CI, Automatic for sale by Mecum Auction

The announcers talked about how they expected dramatic increases in first-generation Riviera prices in the near future..."a car that is just beginning to come into its own" or some such BS. I hope they're right!

That's been the rumor for 25 years, since Richard Langworth's Buick Buyers Guide proclaimed the 65 GS was going to be a $50,000 car soon.

The problem is outside of the 2x4 option package for the 64's and the 65's, they built about 100,000 first gen Rivieras. That's a lot - to create collectible interest from an investment standpoint.

Buy to enjoy, not to make money and the rest will follow.

One just sold at Barrett Jackson for 70K. The owner claimed he had over $200K in the car. I looked it over really well, somebody got taken. But the car still sold for $70K :eek:
