There are a ton of Rivieras that have been showing up for a good part of the time that I've been looking seriously‚ÄĒsince July 2019. I see cars show as "Newly Listed" that have been listed over ten times.

 

That said, in my particular [picky] [late model] buying interest, there's only been one Riviera worth bidding on in seven months. As of right now, I count 14 first-generation cars (27%), 12 second-generation cars (23%), and 11 third-generation cars (21%). At that point, things drop off a cliff until the sixth-generation cars (12/23%) and than collapse again with the seventh-generation (2/4%) and eighth-generation cars (1/2%).

Things aren't much different on Hemmings, but they do have more data points (99 as of today). I count 32 first-generation cars, 18 second-generation cars, 15 third-generation cars, 4 fourth-generation cars, 0 fifth-generation cars, 28 sixth-generation cars, 1 seventh-generation car, and 1 eighth-generation car.

 

So, the collector Riviera market seems obvious and split: 1963-1973 and 1979-1985. To a reasonable extent, this mirrors the sales successes of the Riviera‚ÄĒof the top 12 years for Riviera production, only 1995 is not included in those two time windows.

Jframe, Yeah, I was thinking I’m glad I don’t need one. I knew they were hard to find but wow. FYI he does list some others that are just the emblem. Still pricey.

Arrogance comes with a price I guess.  

 Wow!  I have been stewing about this for a couple of days now and need to get it off my chest . Sorry to hear that I am "bending people over and being arrogant " . Those are my parts that are being commented on. You might first  try finding them in NOS condition before making snide remarks which I personally find very offensive .  You might also notice that they contain "make an offer " which I will gladly entertain with particular attention ALWAYS  given to an ROA member if it is known to me  . It seems there are more and more critical remarks like these recently - something that does not add anything of significant or meaningful value to the usually very helpful discussions on this forum . If you don't like a price for a particular car or part , perhaps silence is a better, more gentlemanly approach or at least contact the seller to discuss if you have a serious interest in something . If you're just a "tire-kicker " with nothing more to do than criticize, then maybe a happier day job is in order.. Enough said . I feel better now and no hard feelings to anyone .

PS . If anyone is ACTUALLy interested in the above parts, PM me and I am happy to discuss

KReed, 

Very well said.¬†apologies for my comment on this. My first thought regarding the price was,¬†‚Äúwell, go find another one..good luck‚ÄĚ
I did point out you had some other options listed for sale but really shouldn’t have commented at all on the subject.  I enjoy this forum and certainly have benefited from the knowledge found here.

again, my apologies.

Interesting 2nd Gen parts for sale on Ebay (not mine)

 

Grill 1968 Buick Riviera Plastic Grille and Headlight Covers

Buy it Now: Price: US $799.00

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Grill-1968-Buick-Riviera-Plastic-Grille-and-Headlight-Covers-1969/184176319871?hash=item2ae1c39d7f:g:oDIAAOSwYZJeTDUw:sc:FedExHomeDelivery!28306!US!-1

Cracked egg crate but still not a bad set for someone in need of one. What's nice are the headlight grille inserts. They don't appear to have any broken ribs, which is rare.

 

GM Factory Underhood Lamp Accessory Retractable Extending 17ft Cord John W Hobbs

Current bid:  US $20.50 + $12.50 shipping
There was a previous thread about these accessory underhood lights. This one appears to be in excellent shape and the price is right (right now that is!)
 
1964-1966 Buick Rivera 2 Spoke Woodgrain Steering Wheel OEM GM TRUE SURVIVOR WOW
Current bid: US $255.00 [ 11 bids ]
+$19.85 shipping
 
Firewall Sound Deadener Insulation Pad for 1968-1970 Buick Riviera
Buy it Now: Discounted price US $268.19
I assume you have to completely strip everything off the interior firewall to install this. Too bad because my old felt firewall insulation is almost completely deteriorated and fallen away. :-(

My apologies as well for my remark. Really no sense in trying to criticize or price someone else's stuff. I probably should be the LAST one to bitch; I paid $225.00 for a driver quality horn cap for my wood wheel. What does seem to happen on "make an offer" deals quite often is that someone DOES make an offer, then gets lambasted for being a "low-baller". I agree it is a beautiful part, and deserves to go to a really nice car. Mine is faded some, and it looks a bit out of place on the relatively new paint job the car has, so I have been glancing around for an alternative. Again, my apologies, and good luck with your sale.

The price has dropped $2,000‚ÄĒnow $15,000. Some undercarriage pictures have been added, indicating that Shane (the seller) read our posts.

Now $13,000.

 

I know it has been a few days, but it looks like they finally found a price someone could live with on this one …

 

From $17,000 to $15,000 to $13,000, and it finally sold!

Not that I am looking to sell, but for that price mine will stay in the garage.

1966 buick riviera gs

condition: excellent
cylinders: 8 cylinders
drive: rwd
fuel: gas
odometer: 50000
paint color: white
size: full-size
title status: clean
transmission: automatic
type: coupe

i'm selling a stunning 1966 buick riviera gs. she's a beauty, but not perfect. this matching numbers riv starts right up, runs strong, shifts smoothly, and has a nice rumble through the dual exhaust. the gs comes with the original documents including the hard-to-find build sheet, protect-o-plate, order form, invoice, owner's manual, and more. here is a list of some of the options equipped on the gs:
A9 - riviera high performance package, gran sport
b4 - operating console with shifter
d2 - am radio with electric antenna
i5 - air conditioning - auto climate control
k2 - cornering lights
l1 - soft-ray glass
m7 - rear window defroster
n2 - 4-note horn
o5 - remote control side mirror
p1 - carpet savers and handy mats (rough condition)
q5 - 4-way tilt, adjustable steering wheel
r1 - power windows
s6 - electro cruise control (not working)
t2 - vacuum operated door locks
v2 - factory chrome plated wheels (light rust)
1b - reclining passenger seat w/ headrests
custom trim bucket seats
factory installed dashboard compass
this mw code car is equipped with the v8, 425 nailhead with dual rochester quadrajet carburetors and offenhauser intake. this has the super turbine 400, 3-speed automatic transmission (bs code). this was repainted in 2017, has a 2019 battery, and the tires are in excellent condition. the odometer reads right at 50,000 miles, but we're not sure if this is correct. as stated earlier, she's in excellent condition, but not perfect. here is a list of items that may or may not need attention (doesn't affect the drivability);
cracked steering collar, some fading to small areas on the carpet, light rust on a couple of the chrome wheels, light, superficial surface rust to engine bay, interior door closure handle on driver side is lifting, crazing to the woodgrain trim, cruise control not working (might be the vacuum line), air conditioner needs a shot of freon. we recently purchased this from the 2nd owner. the first owner (person that special-ordered the car) was an engineer that was on the building committee for the towers of america in san antonio.

There are few eight-generation cars that I consider as sorted and understood as yours‚ÄĒI think what we generally see up for sale has a little less certainty.
