My 69 showroom binders do not list a guidematic for the 69.  I've seen some Mark III's and Imperials with them mounted outside the car. They were not chrome and were the same color as the body but not sure about this one.  If you look close you will see that the mounting gasket on this one is contoured fit to the fender so the unit sits level.  That is a nice touch.  There is no shot of the dash that shows the switch and the sensitivity adjustment.  I would like to see that.  This car was on ebay once before, maybe a year or two ago.  Nice looking car.

Thanks for the reply Pat...I`m quite sure Guidematic was available for `69 but I do not recall ever seeing a chrome "eye"....but I dont purposely look at the `69 models...hence, my question. Thanks again,

Tom

I don't dislike the vinyl top; my point was simply that it's unusual to see a silver one without the black top.  My personal opinion (your mileage may vary) is that the vinyl top gives the car a more formal appearance.  On the other hand, I think it looks more 'sporting' without the vinyl.  Pretty cars either way, just nice to see one without for a change...

Yes, vinyl top is a very subjective visual. I`m surprised you have seen so many vinyl top cars...only 2000 total for the `65 model year on all colors....but then there are add ons,

Now, that's surprising; I don't know why vinyl tops seem to be more common (to me, anyway) than those numbers indicate...

Offered For Sale by The California Automobile Museum
1964 Buick Riviera 425 Wildcat Motor
We Offer Financing

This car looks nearly like it did on the showroom floor over 50 years ago! Beautifully optioned personal luxury car designed by Bill Mitchell. Many others followed, but this was the original!

Exterior: Repainted original Goldwood Yellow with styled steel factory wheels. Chrome and brightwork are all there and in excellent condition. Black plate California car.

Interior: Factory equipped with the custom interior series, this one is exceptional. Equipped with power windows, power driver's seat, tilt wheel, power steering and power brakes, remote trunk opener and glide-matic automatic headlight dimmer. Aftermarket oil pressure and temperature gauges are hidden in the ashtray area. Dashboard does have cracks, it's covered with a dash mat. Carpets, seats, armrests and headliner are beautiful! Driver's wing window doesn't open.

Motor and Driveline: Only 2,122 Rivera's came with the 425 ci 360 hp motors with dual four barrel carter carbs, later called the GS. This is a numbers matching car. Motor has been rebuilt and runs great. Electronic ignition has been added. New master cylinder, new steering box and air lift shocks. Posi-Traction rear axle. New exhaust, no resonators.

Rivieras have gained popularity. It's hard to find a factory stock one, one that hasn't been hacked, wacked and bagged. If you've ever thought about owning one, let's talk, I think you'll love this beautiful car!

We all know that the in 64 the rally wheels were only available on the Wildcat.  Not belittling the wheels on this car but they are 64 wheels with the Wildcat snap in center caps.  Pretty rare.  Wonder if the original owner ordered these through the parts dept. in '64.

I'm a sucker for the Bamboo Cream or whatever you call the yellow. That's a nice car.

178,000 miles—what are the risks here?

 

I bought one of these several years ago at 180K, it did OK for a long time.

 

The one I bought looked worse than this one does, it had had the transaxle rebuilt at 120K, and it has 273K on it now. I did have a few electrical/HVAC issues with it, never really got those completely sorted out, then the fuel pump went out, and I haven't driven it since. The access to the pump isn't too bad I just haven't decided yet if I'm going to fix it or get rid of it.

 

This example looks decent, if the transaxle has been rebuilt, it might not be a bad deal? As far as the 3800 engine, I have known a few that reached between 300 and 500K miles and still ran fine, so I would not worry about that at 178K miles.

Before Ed tells me I might be asking too much, I am curious to know if anyone knows of another FACTORY triple-black 68 GS Riviera? Whenever I think I may have found one, it turns out to be a repaint.

 

I think it would look Regal with some redline tires (and of course after removing dents, hehe).

If it's something you think you'd like, don't concern yourself with the x of y.  Strange though that the seller doesn't show any pictures of the GS emblems or the front seats.  The text for the ad sounds like it's straight out of "sell that used car 101" description writing class.

Your out of control Ed. I could get a closer shot of the GS, but there is a picture screen of all the damages with front seat. If someone was interested of course we send more pictures, yet only so many can be loaded on Craigslist.

Chances are some of the items have already been replaced but the 3800 engine is bullet proof with proper maintenance.  They are known for intake manifold gasket failures but mechanically, they are very reliable.  Electronic issues are common.  The fuel gauge sending unit in the tank WILL fail and they are known for wheel speed sensor failure which will render your anti-lock brakes and traction control inoperable.  The brakes will work just fine though.  As Randall pointed out, HVAC issues will make themselves known.

I put 196,000 miles on my 1997 and aside from the gasket mentioned above, the only mechanical items I replaced were the water pump and AC compressor.  The supercharger was original and the car was running well when I sold it.

I talked to this guy a few months ago about the car. Seemed a little odd but said the car was nice. Curious why it's been for sale for so long.I was actually going to buy it for the emblems and use as a driver as it's making me nuts that both of my emblems are gone now!!!!!!

If anyone Is near the car I would be willing to throw us a couple of bux for your time to take a peek.
