Rivieras for sale on local Craigslist, eBay, etc.


Recommended Posts

Kick the can

Still has the mystery toggle switch.

Nothin else was changed, either.

I fail to see the “power locks” or “power seat” switches.

Hope it does well.

I emailed Hemmings about the "misleading" info on the power locks and power seat.  I'll let you know when, or if, I hear back from them.  :ph34r:

Keep in mind that if you purchase a convertiblevthat most of the interior parts are different than those of a coupe.  Lots of vinyl where the coupe used velour.  The back seat and rear arm rests were custom made for the convertibles; again, no interchange with the coupe.  There's a really good site on the web that shows how a new coupe was shipped to ASC where a sawzall was taken to the roof and the conversion was begun.  Great cars, especially for this price if it's all good, but keep in mind there are no parts cars from which to salvage parts.  The only thing worse is the '83 Twentieth Anniversary XX edition. Fewer made and even more unique parts.

I got to surfing around.  Silver Arrow #003 is for sale on Autotrader.com. $7,995. 

 

It looks like another “dealership/prep person” couldn’t follow instructions …

Instead of “removing” the Riviera emblem and putting the Silver Arrow emblem in the correct location, on the quarter panel, they just “added” it to the door.

 

I have seen a couple others not installed correctly. With mine they put the numbered badge on the “dash panel” instead of on the “knee bolster” as per the instructions.

Wow.  I guess that I should have held on to mine. Mine had a new top, new interior, and T-Type wheels.  Sold it for about a third of this asking price.  LOTS of soft top Rivieras out there in the $4K to $6K range.

The black “Gran Sport,” not “Grand Sport,” as they have it advertised, just went for $46,500.

 

The ’83 convertible went for $7,000 earlier today.

Apparently wood steering wheels do not have to have a horn bar in them for the car to bring a good price. :D

1964 Diplomat Blue Buick Riviera with silver vinyl bucket seats and 91,000 miles, asking $13,900.

 

https://www.ebay.com/itm/1964-Buick-Riviera/254311457087

 

What's a "survivor" Riviera from a northern state (with paint that shows it) worth?

Just noticed that the tires don't match …

I guess they are embarrassed to say it’s a Riviera as all the scripts have been removed from the exterior.

Diplomat blue with silver interior is an interesting color combo.  The asking price is all the money.

1998 Slate Green Pearl Riviera with taupe leather bucket seats and 34,000 miles, asking $5,200.

 

https://sfbay.craigslist.org/nby/cto/d/santa-rosa-1998-buick-riviera/6945006184.html

 

No usable contact information. Located in Santa Rosa, CA.

 

It does look pretty good, and a nice looking color combo.

 

Use the "reply" through CL? That seems hit or miss but might work.

 

A long way to get it home though, that would be one drawback?

Hah! Worked on the smartphone, but not on the computer. Thank you.

 

Agreed that it is a long way home—2,870 miles. On the other hand, I drove the 1985 almost that exact route in 2014.
