The Buick Riviera offered here was certainly a pride of ownership.  Previous owner and restorer owned it for 45 years and sold it two years ago to current owner.  Prior history to 1974 is unknown.  This car received a body-off frame restoration many years ago and has been enjoyed and cared for since.  Its beautiful Riviera Plum paint and interior color is just delicious.  Endless amount of time and energy has gone into this car and it shows.  It has 83,101 miles on the car and engine, no records anywhere would indicate a rebuilt engine.  It starts, runs, drives, steers, charges, stops and cools very well so no concerns there.


There are a few items we can report after testing the car:


  • Power antenna goes up easily, slips going down.
  • Original Radio does not work
  • The heating system does not blow warm air, we suspect the hot water valve is not opening, the vacuum line going to it does not have vacuum.
  • The A/C compressor kicks on properly when called for, but I am unable to tell if its truly blowing cold.
  • The transmission is seeping fluid.
  • All lights and hideaway headlights working properly.
  • Windshield wipers work, washers do not.
  • Tires are older, new owner should plan on purchasing new tires
  • Currently RI safety inspected until July 2019
  • Transmission indicator not working
  • There is a molding on the dashboard missing.
  • Heater and A/C dashboard controls seem to be operating correctly.
  • All gauges appear to be working.
  • Sometimes the drivers interior door handle to exit the car doesn’t work.  Will need an adjustment.  When this happens I use the rear passenger exit handle.
  • Power windows:  Drivers quarter does not work.  Drivers work good.  Passenger works from drivers control down, not up.  Passenger control controls both up and down.  Passenger quarter works from drivers door.  With all the windows, you can see all the motors “faintly clicking”, so it would appear all controls are working properly.
  • All interior lights working
