Hello-

Recently found this forum on the AACA - interesting listings! Listing on Craigslist below is mine - gauging interest.  Numbers matching 1966 Riviera GS with some nice options, but needs some TLC.  

 

https://denver.craigslist.org/cto/d/boulder-buick-riviera-1966-gs/7252750672.html

 

Feel free to contact with any questions

Nice representation of what you have. It looks like you're not trying to hide anything.  Those 4 note horns are aftermarket, and I have to ask "what is that on the driver's side inner fender that looks like bell from a boxing ring?"  Do you realize that your steering wheel is missing the horn bar? Should sell quickly for what you're asking for it.

Hello-

Thanks for the questions. The boxing ring bell is a very old-school car alarm. I'm aware the original horn bar is missing from the steering wheel; tried to make sure the picture indicated that was missing. There are after-market horns, which are functional, and original 4-note horns hanging from the underside of the hood (not functional).

 

Best regards

IMHO, it's a great color on the '66 Riviera.

 

I agree. If it is a factory special order, Darwin Falk's research says it would be one of 184.

  I am VERY familiar with this car. My friend purchased this through an auction house in Chicago on Ebay about 12 or 15 years ago. I stayed at his farm in Vermont for a week before the ROA meet in Gettysburg a few years back and I had a chance to thoroughly inspect the car as he wanted me to buy it. I passed on the opportunity because although I believe this car was a very well kept original GS there was obviously some rust repair which was performed before repaint and that repair was starting to show through. If you look closely at the pics there are some non original generic moldings which have been placed around the body....or at least there was when I looked at it. The car was originally white, the dual quads were added. If this was an original SCO paint dual quad car I would have had it on a Uhaul trailer in Gettysburg. My friend sold this car and a `62 Tbird convert to a dealer in Vermont who I believe is running it through Mecum.

  Sadly, my friend passed away a few months after my stay but thankfully I was able to spend some quality time with him on the farm. He was a very unique person who led an unusual life, and could weave a tale of it, over the course of a few too many whiskies, that was fascinating. My frequent chats with him are sorely missed.

Thanks (as always) Tom. Correcting my original post.

I saw this on the Riviera Cars and Parts FB page.  Thought some of you might be interested.  It appears that one person is using an online auction to get rid of a bunch of Riviera parts - like four wood steering wheels.  There are a number separate auctions, each with a few parts.  Gotta be something in there for everyone.  Just don't bid against each other.  😎

1965 Buick Riviera Beautifully Restored On Ebay

 

https://www.ebay.com/itm/1965-Buick-Riviera/224305772156?

 

s-l500.jpg

  Looks like a nice car overall but that aftermarket steering wheel is murdering the look of the interior...and compromising the overall impression of quality. The original steering wheel is soooo `60`s why not have it restored like the rest of the car?

  I like the "frosty" look of the Seafoam green in some of the pics which I`m sure is due to lighting...someday I`d like to see a firemist color between `65 Seafoam and `66 Riviera Silver Green on a first gen Riv

When I bought my 65, the upper front bumper was mounted incorrectly like this one.  I have seen a few others like this over the years.  It is an easy fix that just takes a little patience.  Beautiful color combo!

1972 buick riviera

odometer: 126000
title status: clean
transmission: automatic

1972 Boat tail Riviera survivor in solid condition. I pulled it out of a barn after being parked there since 1988, an honest barn find! I've replaced the windshield, radiator, water pump, fuel pump, alternator, rebuilt the carb, replaced the rubber fuel lines. I rebuilt the transmission as it was starting to slip from sitting so long. The car now runs and drives well enough to be an in town cruiser. The body is straight and essentially rust free, inner fenders are good, and the floor pan is solid with only a little surface rust. The paint is showing its age, and has a scratch on the passenger side. The vinyl top has a few rock chip holes in and could stand to be replaced. Interior is in good condition and the only seat damage is wear the stitching has torn on the drivers seat. I did pull the carpet out as it was damaged and needed to go. Most electrical controls work as well. The car has the factory 455 with 126,000 miles on it. It would make an awesome survivor restoration, or a great platform for a complete restoration, you choose! If you are looking for an original car, this is the one. Please see photos for condition. $9000 obo Title in hand. Thanks for looking!

Is it upside down?

It was not upside down.  A friend with a 65 did most of the work 17 years ago.  It took him an entire day.  He used his car for reference.

Hammered for $23,000 plus 10% buyer's premium. I'm putting the selling prices or the maximum bid in my original post. Four out of the five Rivieras sold, with the only exception being the 1969.

Hello everyone, I'm posting this vehicle for a good friend. EVERYTHING is original. All original miles. He is the third owner of the vehicle second owner was his father-in-law and the first owner was the original owner of the car. It hasn't seen bad weather in the last 25 years always garage kept. He has done regular maintenance to keep the car running. Only thing that's not original is the paint. The power windows are all working condition no mechanical issues turn right on. Pictures cannot justify the beauty of this car, only has to be seen in person to appreciate it. He is getting very old and is ready to pass it on to the next person to appreciate and value this car. He is located in Mission Viejo and I could set up anytime you are willing to come see it. You will be in contact with me until you are ready to go see the car.

Got chuckle out of this ad. EVERYTHING is original in caps......then goes on to say paint is not original😂 😂

As of late I've seen this repeated in other ads. Apparently the word original now has same perceived value as barn find.

Pictures cannot justify the beauty of this car, only has to be seen in person to appreciate it. He is getting very old and is ready to pass it on to the next person to appreciate and value this car. He is located in Mission Viejo and I could set up anytime you are willing to come see it. You will be in contact with me until you are ready to go see the car.

  This was a GREAT buy assuming the purchase price was in the upper teens and as long as the body wasnt hammered up and bondo`d over and the paint is decent. Great color combo, very, very nicely equipped including serviceable leather and early production only twilight sentinel, LOW miles and assuming it is an original rust free CA car, original trunk trim intact, etc...so many nice little touches like the original seat belts with, IMO, the best buckle design in automotive history...even a socket set permanently mounted under the hood on the tie bar! I`m not crazy about the rattle can work under the hood and a few little things but this was a great car at a great price to get into the hobby. Perfect candidate to improve a little at a time with small jobs, have some fun and run the wheels off it. Great driver!
