Riviera 1973

Title Status --
Exterior Color Green Metallic
Interior Color Neutral


The 1973 Buick Riviera is a sleek boat-tail coupe, and so you know something like this makes the ideal custom cruiser. That's why you've got an awesome stance, a subwoofer stereo, and an exceptional full paint theme. Plus, the price leaves some room in your budget if you want to make any more personal touches of your own.

This generation Riviera will always be in demand for that stylish flowing lines and distinctive bot tail rear end. But this one is distinct for far more. The unique style starts with a color called Legend Lime Gold. Emblems and side trim were deleted to give the whole car some very clean and sleek lines. On top of the Lime Gold is a custom candy green lace paint job on its flanks that offers a surface so interesting you almost can't resist touching it. And because this was all cleared over, it's surprisingly smooth! There's plenty of metallic in the finish, so it truly glows in the sunshine. It will draw people closer where they can check out a golden side stripe that mimics the lines of the factory full-length trim. Big chrome bumpers, Cobra side mirrors, large exhaust tips and polished wheels on lowered stance makes sure the brightwork package shows off a premium and aggressive side.

The interior fundamentals keep a very stock style, but you'll also notice nice upgrades with fresher seat upholstery and a newer headliner. It makes for a spacious and comfortable setup that reminds you a vintage Buick is fun for family and friends. But all you need to do is fold down the front armrest to remind you this is a personal luxury cruiser, too. You'll slip behind the three-spoke steering wheel that's on a tilt column, and that gives you a commanding view of the wraparound gauge panel. Plus, this has terrific features like power front seats, power windows, and provisions for factory air conditioning (it will need servicing to blow cold again.) And because you have a proper low-riding hardtop, you also need proper driving music. So there's now an upgraded AM/FM/CD/aux stereo with subwoofer speaker system.

Buick's 455 cubic inch V8 is a legendary torque king, and so this big V8 just feels even more imposing when presented in its correct Dante Red. This is a very stock style, but there also have been some more recent investments in upgrades, like an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor and an HEI distributor. The V8 fires up nicely with a feeling of proper care, and there's a good tune out of the dual exhaust. The TH400 three-speed automatic transmission was built to be both stout and smooth, and it feeds a strong 12-bolt rear end. Power steering, power brakes, and front discs complete a package built to make sure this Riviera lives up to its easy driving heritage.

Complete with maintenance records, this Riviera offers a custom style, proper power, and a terrific price. Call today!!!
