Riviera 1985

Title Status --
Exterior Color Autumn Maple Firemis
Interior Color Claret Red


This 1985 Buick Riviera is an exceptionally preserved example where the nearly impossibly low odometer is even believed to be the full mileage. So it's a nicely presented reminder of why we love individual luxury coupes. With V8 power, a luxury A/C interior, an overdrive transmission, and a fully independent suspension, you can cruise in vintage style and comfort for quite an affordable price.

You know you like the Autumn Maple Firemist color, and we do, too. It has an interesting depth that brings out bold red undertones when the sunlight hits it. It shows all the right signs of being the factory application, and it continues to look impressive for a classic that's rapidly approaching its 40th anniversary. This survivor paint sets the tone for the whole car. After all, the ultra-low odometer is believed to show the full mileage. While there are records that back this up, you can also see this is a time capsule inside and out. The headlights still shine like jewels in the bright factory housing; the golden pinstripe running the full length of the car really highlights the gentle curves in its profile; and the bright solid wire wheel covers are a terrific way to showcase the special Riviera logo.

Those solid doors swing wide for a dramatic reveal of an exceptionally preserved interior. The deep maroon has the kind of coordinated sophistication that will remind you of the Riviera's European naming root. The way the leather on the seat looks is another one of the signs this car has received top care and little us. It nicely matches the door panels, carpeting, and dash for an unmistakable well-preserved factory appearance. The smooth burled walnut veneer and full courtesy lights kit are even part of the terrific details that make the full package so impressive. There are fold-down armrests in each row, so you can choose to carry up to five family and friends with you, or go for more individual comfort. You get to grab the factory wheel that matches this maroon and wood motif and gaze at the extra wide speedometer. From this command position you have an easy reach to all the features such as the power seat, power windows, power locks, power mirrors, rear defogger, tilt wheel, the Delco AM/FM stereo, and cold-blowing air conditioning.

Under the hood is the optional 307 cubic inch V8. Just like the rest of this luxury coupe, it looks exceptionally factory-correct and exceptionally preserved. The V8 motor was a valuable piece to give the Riviera the right kind of torque to move it around with authority. The attitude on this one is a comfortable cruiser that could even rival its relatives at Cadillac. That's why it came with grand touring features like the fully independent suspension and a four-speed automatic transmission with overdrive. This is the kind of classic that you're not intimidated to take on long trips thanks to power steering, power brakes, front discs, and cruise control.

A unique classic like this needs the right paperwork, and so the sale comes complete with the factory buildsheet, title documentation, and maintenance records. This is a sharp-looking survivor that also has the right look that tells you deserves to be driven. So if you want to show the world what personal luxury is all about, don't miss this Riviera.
