1982 BUICK RIVIERA CONVERTIBLE STK #: 1278 *Front Wheel Drive* White exterior with claret leather interior Fully loaded with all options 5.0L V-8 Automatic Transmission Power Windows Power Door locks Newer Convertible top First year of model production Rare, low overall production volume Believed to be 52,000 original miles On February 25, 1982, a press release was sent out to all Buick dealers. It stated that the all new, limited production, Buick Riviera Convertible is to debut in the spring, mid April 1982. Available in two colors only; White or Red Firemist with a Maple / Claret Leather Interior with a White Vinyl Top. Most never made it to dealers lot before mid to late July of that year and all featured the new updated 1983 Riviera grill. This was a very well appointed automobile by 1982 standards and the price reflected it. Consider this, a brand new 1982 Buick Riviera hardtop, a best seller for Buick, cost $14,898.45 base price with freight. The 1982 Buick Riviera Convertible, a new untested car for Buick, cost $24,494.25 base price with freight. Add some options and this car could easily top out at over $27,500.00 (in 1982). This was the highest priced automobile GM sold, and that counted the entire brand, including Cadillac. In 1982, only 1,248 Riviera convertibles were produced. Most of the initial production convertibles were quickly acquired by many higher up GM executives, District Managers and even Cadillac executives. Not a bad number for a newly introduced, limited production, high end automobile. If you own or have owned one of these fine Buick Riviera convertible automobiles you know what an exciting, luxurious car they are. ***If you are viewing this on Facebook Marketplace, be sure go to our website to view all photos.
