Survivor appeal and luxury are both on display here. After all, when was the last time you saw a 1989 Buick Riviera? Now think about one that looks this clean/complete, loaded with the best features, nicely documented, and has averaged only around 3k miles annually. Indeed, this is a very special personal luxury coupe.

The Riviera was built to be rolling elegance, and this one now does it with an eye for survivor style. So the first impression is a true classic with a touch of barn find fun. For example, the silver paint is the factory application. It's clean, complete, and still gives off a good shine. But there's also just the right hints of aged-in appeal that gets respect from fans of originality. The overall look of the body lines are both sophisticated and sporty. We especially like the full-length pinstriping that highlights the curve at the rear fenders and the unique design of the trunk line. Brightwork is used tastefully for a waterfall grille, stylized "R" hood ornament, wire wheel covers, and a chrome trim strip that encircles this coupe. It makes for a total impression that continues to give off a personal luxury vibe.

These were top-of-the-line Buicks that reached into Cadillac territory, so a loaded leather interior awaits you inside. There are a few signs of enjoyment over the years on the upholstery, but the way it remains clean and plush is another reminder of a well-respected classic. This is a loaded luxury vehicle with power windows, power locks, power mirrors, cruise control, and power front seats. But as you can see from the pictures, this is more than just great features. There's cool technology, too. Many of the components are button-operated, and they surround the digital speedometer. Your air conditioning, AM/FM/cassette stereo, and information on the car are all controlled through a futuristic touchscreen display in the center of the dash. Yes, you can get factory touchscreen controls in a car from 1989!

One of Buick's most durable and well-developed engines is the fuel-injected 3.8-liter V6, It's torque-filled, efficient, and reliable. This one also looks like it has received the right maintenance along the way to make sure it delivers the kind of power and poise you expect from a personal luxury Buick. The four-speed automatic transmission w/overdrive gives it great off-the-line response and pleasant highway manners. Add in a fully independent suspension that's supple yet athletic, power steering, and four-wheel power disc brakes, and this classic offers quite an attractive grand touring experience.

The sale comes complete with the window sticker and owner's manual packet. This Riviera is luxurious, preserved, and above all, quite interesting. It's time to attract all the right attention in a very affordable time capsule. Call today!!!
