800 Derita Road, Ste. A
Say hello to your favorite new bad boy. After all, it's hard to find anything meaner than a 1965 Buick Riviera with custom touches made for pure intimidation. But don't forget that this coupe is also a true cruiser with everything from cold A/C to a big V8 under the hood.
Black Cherry is a terrific color for this car. It looks like black at night, but when the sunlight hits it, you get that devilish deep undertone. So this one has the look of a true mean machine no matter what time of day you go for a ride. More than just this upgraded paint, the 1965 Riviera was the perfect canvas for this evil masterpiece. Razor-sharp body lines with pointed ends always made these large coupes look aggressive. This was the only year that they concealed the headlights in the fenders. Add in the custom grille, matte black trim pieces, and bright 20-inch Ridler wheels, and this one looks wicked from every angle.
The dark horse package continues inside. But where the exterior has a mean-streak, the interior retains all the best comforts of the Riviera's individual luxury. The intricate pattern on the seats and side panels are a classy design that are presented just as nicely today as in 1965. Everyone gets an individual bucket seat, and the rear ones were even recently refinished in leather. There are nice comfort features, like power windows, an upgraded AM/FM/CD stereo w/aux input, and cold-blowing R134a air conditioning. There's a cool center console where the wood paneling has been replaced with carbon fiber trim to keep a hint of agression. You get the original dual-spoke steering wheel that gives you a commanding view of brushed stainless round gauge package. The overall driver-oriented cockpit reminds you this is a fantastic classic for cruising.
Buick knew that effortless performance was the key to the Riviera's success, so they made sure that there was plenty of power and torque to move all that sheetmetal with ease. The 401 cubic-inch V8 is believed to be original, and it looks terrific filling the engine bay. After all, in a coupe as dark as midnight, the big turquoise block instantly stands out. It inhales deeply with the upgraded Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, and exhales with authority out of the Cherry Bomb dual exhaust. The overall exceptional presentation of the engine bay points to nice investments in keeping this Buick running smoothly. Speaking of smooth operation, the TH400 three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, power brakes, and Riviera's legendary supple ride make this the easy choice for weekend cruising day or night.
This is the coupe that looks mean to everyone but feels luxurious from behind the wheel. That makes it the classic that really knows how to make an entrance. So if you're ready to have all eyes on you, call today!
