Outside mirrors were also an option. The only mirror that was standard was the rear view mirror.

Wow, even a (basic) "non-remote" outside mirror --- that's just crazy!  Of course I thought you must be joking, and I didn't realize that because our sticker lists the remote control mirror option. 

I also would've thought (in the '60s) that a drivers side rearview mirror would've been a government mandated safety item. 

 

What's also equally strange is how they listed all the Riviera "Standard Items" at the bottom, which normally would be considered optional items on other vehicles.  For example, why they wouldn't make the Tilt Steering Column an option, and make the Whitewall Tires a Riviera standard item is just bizarre.  It was obviously nothing but pure marketing strategy; albeit very strange in today's automotive sales strategy.

On the Team Buick website, you can find a complete list of every option available for Buick’s 1963 full sized models.  Very interesting.  There are two “suggested” option listings for dealers when ordering floor models.

Hi Ed, are you able to pin point where that can be found. I scoured the site for a few hours and failed to find it.

many thanks

On the Team Buick Reference Library page:  https://www.teambuick.com/reference/index.php 

Try picking the model year you're looking for, (and look under "options").

I wonder if this is the color my car was originally.  Is this the only blue stock color (specifically '64 even though I'm guessing this is a '63)?  Looks great, BTW.

I am the proud owner from today of this 1966 Buick Riv (UK). Can't stop looking at it. I have no regrets of selling my E-type for this comfortable cruiser.

 

Congratulations and welcome to the Riviera family!

So far I have owned a 1963 (not a fan of the Dynaflow) 1967 GS, 1971 and three 1996 Rivieras. I currently own two 1996 Rivieras. Here is my latest:

Congrats. That is a killer color on the last gen Rivs along with chrome wheels.

I follow this gentleman on Instagram. He takes great pictures of his Riviera all across Central Canada. Don't beat him up about the front bumper. He drives his car more in a month than most of us drive ours in a year!

The comments in that article are brutal. Proof that opinions are like a#&holes, everybody has one. No one concedes that the mods are the owners choices and if they make him happy, then it should be good enough for the rest.

Great picture -- did you use a filter, or was the sky really that red?
