It appears to me that a new heater hose has been attached to the water pump then attached to the old hose coming from the heater core.  Why one of them wasn't shortened in the first place is the question.

Operating console was a separate option.

 

This Riviera is fitted with the deluxe interior.

Right. I just don't know if I had ever seen a Riviera with bucket seats and no console shifter OR center non-shifter console. But NOW I have! Perhaps they put in seats later without any console? Others like this out there from factory?

The full-length operating console was optional at extra cost on bucket seat models.

 

The non-operating floor console was standard on models equipped with bucket seats.

 

Therefore, the floor console was removed on the Los Angeles Craigslist 1968 Riviera or a non-operating floor console was requested to be deleted when the vehicle was ordered (probably less likely).

 

Further, no chrome air cleaner lid appears to be present.  This was removed, requested to be swapped for a standard air cleaner lid when the vehicle was ordered (probably less likely) or the vehicle may not be not be a genuine GS.

The color of the Los Angeles Craigslist Riviera is not the same shade of green as Code S - Olive Gold Metallic, an exclusive Riviera color.

 

Olive gold metallic was specified on 22.59% of all 1968 Rivieras per Darwin Falk's Options Not Included series of articles in the Riview.

 

It was either repainted a somewhat different shade of green or or special color specified from the factory (probably less likely).

1969 Riviera - Frame off Restored - $19,500

 

https://houston.craigslist.org/cto/d/1969-buick-rivera-frame-off/6501710586.html

 

 

Only 742 factory black in 69. The ad is saying they have over $70K put into it? Does that include storage fees? Anyway, looks like a nice vehicle and if thats the original paint color. Maybe a sweet deal.

 

Let me pick it apart for a second. No cornering lights (which I love), and standard interior. Roll up windows (some people like that), and they did the carpet wrong. Looks like there is a hole where the remote mirror control goes maybe. Also they put that R on it as if it had a vinyl top. I wonder if originally it did have a vinyl top and when they removed that, they only kept that piece. The back vents don't looks textured however. 

 

AC, thats good. 

 

Thanks for posting.

 The R  on the drivers sail panel being there and 15° away from level is enough to scare me away  LoL I guess this is what 70 G gets you these days.

Nice. Very nice.

No engine pics and could use a new dash pad from what i can see. Wish he was on the second coast.

In pic 9 is that the gear shifter or the parking brake?  That's a pretty bad ass detail.

Hey,
 
I'm selling it because my husband died 2 months ago (he had a heart attack) and it brings me bad memories, that's the reason I want to sell it a.s.a.p.The total price is $14,200. No damage or hidden defects. It is in immaculate condition, meticulously maintained. I have clear title, without liens or loans on it, everything is under my name. Me and my son decided to sell the house and we moved to my parents house in Mason City, NE trying to start a new life. We need to meet up to my parents place or I can arrange delivery - it will cost the gas money and I will pay for it.
 
I want to use eBay Motors services (5 days of testing prior purchase) for the safety of both of us, so if you’re interested in purchasing, please provide me your full name for the bill of sale, your full address and a phone number so I can notify eBay that you're selected as my possible buyer, and they will contact you to explain the entire procedure.
 
I look forward to hear from you!
 
Thanks!
 
P.S. I have attached the pics to the email, the specs are below:
 
1965 Buick Riviera       
 
302 Ci Engine, 400 Turbo Transmission, 74,000 miles, Gasoline.

Hi,

Thanks for getting back to me! It is located in Mason City, NE.

Right now, I'm not there, because I'm a special needs nurse and can’t take off without a 48 hours notice. We need to meet up or I can arrange delivery - it will cost the gas money and I'll pay for it. I’d like to use eBay because someone stood me up last week - he made me drive there but he didn't show up. They’ll hold the money so you have the chance to inspect it for 5 days - the title and everything. Only after you’ve had the chance to do all that, you will call eBay and let them release the money. You’re not committed to buy it, if you request a refund, eBay will provide it within 24h.

If that sounds good to you, then all I need to get started is your name, delivery address and phone number!

Thanks,
 
Maria
