Rivieras for sale on local Craigslist, eBay, etc.

There's a 1985ish Caddy for sale near me. At first glance I thought it was a Riv, but alas, no. -_-

I'm by no means a "small guy" and I've found this generation Riviera quite roomy.  Besides our day trip ventures, Linda and I drove our 93 to the ROA meets in Lexinton and Colorado Springs, and our 90 to Chicago and Overland Park and to the BCA meet in Springfield.  Comfy, peppy, roomy, and economical.  My wife drives it to and from work when she's in the mood.  "Don't knock it till you've tried it."

Emerald Mist?

 

 

 

Emerald Mist?

 

 

How about Seamist Green?

 

The chart below shows it was available on Riviera at an extra charge, maybe it was special ordered?

I posted both pages because the color looks different on each one.

 

It might have been an SCO car? Seamist Green is not listed on the ROA site, maybe because it was an optional extra cost color?

I rejected Seamist Green as a possibility because it wasn't on the ROA site (I'm so trusting). I'll agree that it is visually closer. How common were special order paint cars?

It is.

 

If seamiest green then only 58 came from factory that color.

 

Of course it could also be a repaint. Perhaps was originally Emerald, then painted a more rare color, yet this is all part of the detective work.

It looks like the ROA lists only the "standard" colors that were available on the Riviera, the others on the 1972 Buick color chart are left off.

 

I know one member that has a Fire Red '72, not a "standard" color, but an "available" color. His body tag doesn't list it as an SCO car, it just has the 75 code for Fire Red.

Very nice 1966 Buick Riviera with the last year of the coveted Nailhead V8. A true vintage American Muscle car. 360hp!!! 465 ftlb torque !!! 89k original miles, reflected on title and odometer. This car is a runner driver that does both exceptionally well. She’s always down for a neighborhood stroll or a highway leg stretch.

All original, no aftermarket garbage. Collectors plate included! Even have the original paper owners manual in the glove box and a dealer service manual for help with any maintenance requirements should they arise

Original Blue vinyl interior in good shape. No cracks in the dash and switches all do what they’re supposed to. The only thing I can’t get to work is the radio but it is the stock one.

She has been garage kept. Did an oil change on her about 300 miles ago with Lucas Oil with Zinc for her flat tappet cam lifters. Had a tune up with a new fuel filter and spark plugs. Starts easy. She runs like a dream. Especially since I treat her to only clear gas without ethanol. Kept on a battery tender.

New tires bought last year with well over 95% of their life left. She’s been driven like a baby.

Has a few minor bumps and bruises but nothing that can’t be looked past on her land yacht body.

Run and drive her as is, or get a huge head start on a resto.

Open to offers. No trades. Cash talks. I do NOT need help selling this car. Add still up means she’s available. Email me for contact details.

Sunset Sage. Code V-76*   *Exclusive Riviera color.

 

I could be all over this if it weren't for the vinyl top.

 

Here's another one from the internet but with full skirts.  The vinyl top looks better in white - IMHO.  But what would the car look like with no vinyl top.

"Dusty Pink"?  Doesn't sound masculine enough to be a Riviera color. 😄

Yea, I've seen a lot of Rivs over the years but will never forget a 71 I saw locally that was Sunset Sage way back around 1986. It was beautiful and I wanted it but was into 67s at time and only room to store one, not to mention poor as a church mouse. I know it could be considered a little bit girlish of a color but it sure makes a statement and its not often seen.

This 70 in that color, floor shift, and short skirts black top and white interior is eye catching.

My "Aqua Mist" Riv isn't a very "masculine" color either but the car still looks like it can eat Nissans, Toyotas and Hondas for lunch!

Mike,  

Looks can be deceiving. You've apparently not been paying attention to the technology that's made it's way into today's cars.  Fuel injection, variable valve timing, 6 speed transmissions, etc.  I found these stats on the internet.  1968 Buick Riviera 0 to 60 times @ 7.0 seconds with 360 hp.  2018 Honda Accord 0 to 60 @ 5.6 seconds with 212 hp.  2018 Toypta Camry 0 to 60 @ 5.8 with a top speed of 138 mph with 203 hp.  Watch who you take on at the next red light.  Make sure you just smile at the guy in the Tesla. 😁

Ed, you take my response WAY to literally. Yes I agree new cars out perform our old cars.

With the exception of Tesla and some of the Super Cars currently out there, I still think my Riviera's "Cool Factor" far exceeds any new car our there.

If you don't agree, that's your prerogative, but don't piss on my personal opinion of my own car.

Kind of like the Coral Mist from 1964.
