I don't know that I've ever seen someone put a 350 in a Riv. Nice upper rad hose.

I did find one here in NC around a year ago on Craigslist, can't remember if it was a '63 or 4, but, it looked pretty rough to say the least, so I didn't bother posting it.

I noticed that too, kind of wondered about it, but not that much I guess.

This one is just a couple hours from me, looks clean.  I don't know enough about the second gens to know if it's a real GS, but supposedly all original and in good shape for $12k (although he does say it has a 431 haha). https://missoula.craigslist.org/cto/6094019896.html

Yeah and leather seats.

 

Well you would want to see a the chrome air cleaner top, GS badging in correct places, but perhaps the most telling would be the PY code on the left side of differential tube on bottom. Or if somehow you could determine the robust handling components. Check to see if it has the quick steering ratio, so check the lock to lock. Only GS could add that option. 

 

It looks in good condition, however pictures are lacking and not close up. None of engine. Black is a rare color so could be repainted. Got to put this one to the test!

Here is an example of the Posi code PY (potential GS) and the non-posi PJ (non-GS). And of course the quick check is if it has the metal tag on the differential. The transmissions are the same GS vs. non-GS, so it will be a BT tag trans either way. No special engine stamp, so really if it has the chrome air cleaner top and posi, that would be pretty good (of course paperwork would be awesome to have).

This beauty is looking for a new home! It's a very clean well maintained true survivor that is ready to hit the road and be shown off at the first cruise of the season! Mostly original except for paint, 455 engine with 4 barrel carburetor. Everything works as it should including the A/C for the upcoming hot summer days! This vehicle is a real head turner and pictures do it NO justice! I'm willing to negotiate on price but please no low balls, trades or tire kickers.thanks for looking.

 

Looks to be in real nice condition. $18k negotiable. Appears to be standard interior not often seen plus shorty console. And it has fender mounted light monitors. Too bad no engine pics. Not crazy on color but if I lived in FL it wouldn't be bad. Likely taken care of as rubber bumper strips look nice

NICE!

And here is her sister, left behind in Florida. Same ride without the consolette.

Called the owner - nice guy. Rims do not seem original? Just had the front seats done very well IMO:

I don't have room for another car :( I would trade for a BT if the right one came along.

I can check it out if someone is interested.

Here's a low production model.  1979 Riviera S-type.  This one does not have the S-type wheel covers and it has the Turbo V6 DELETE option ($110 credit). Rather it has the 350 V8.  Only down 40 HP from the turbo model.

 

The ROA's website has some info on what makes these different that a base Riviera.

While this isn't on Craigslist, I found this listing the other day, supposedly of a 69 Riv in Virginia:

https://listing-basket.com/4303-1969-buick-riviera-time-capsule-fully-loaded-mint/details.html

When I inquired about this car, this is the response I received:

"My name is Debra Hobbs. You showed interest in buying the 1969 Buick Riviera Time Capsule Fully Loaded Mint that I have for sale. First a few words about the car, it's a 1969 Buick Riviera and although it's the 1969 model, it has only 104580 miles and it's in great condition. This beauty is extremely clean inside and has been well cared for. The car is being sold as described, no mechanical or electrical issues, everything is in great condition and has been recently serviced, never abused, non smoker, runs and drives perfect. You can buy it for the price of $6,667.00. I know the price is under market's value, we have tried to sell it at a higher price but we are in a bit of a rush since my husband got a new job and signed a contract for 5 years in Italy, Europe. 
If you have any question or need any info please let me know."

"Mrs. Hobbs" responded directly to me via Gmail. I replied with several followup questions that have gone unanswered, especially my questions about this same car being on an Ebay auction, supposedly in Idaho, that ended May 16 with a $1000 reserved opening bid and NO bidders. I send the seller a question about where this car was, exactly. Again, I have received no answers to my questions.

This listing smells very bad. BEWARE....

I think I recognize the writing style, phrasing, and word choice. Vague niceties are often repeated but no details are given even when pressed. I was chasing down a car on Craigslist Orlando a couple of months ago. I said I wanted to see it while I was in Florida. Suddenly, its in Washington state and the owner is overseas and there's a long story. Be careful out there, my friends.
