The trunkis the nicestdetailed one I've ever seen. (since 1964)
The engine compartment is spectacular and all correct.
The engine runs smooth and powerful and the transmission shiftsperfect making this car a real joy to drive.If you so inclined, ut the pedal to thefloor, pen up the dual Carter AFB'S and this car "Hauls A**"
I preferto relaxandcruiseat the legal speed limit and listed to the great sounding original AM/FM radio with the factory reverberator....it delays the sound from the rear speaker to the front speaker and makes it sound like your listening to music in a grand concert hall!
It cranks right up the first time...every time and the factory air-conditioningblows ice cold.
In 1963, he Buick Riviera was introduced to plug a gaping hole in GM's line. Buick's fortunes had fallen precipitously to ninth in the overall market, nd it was desperate for a flashy new product. All the GM divisions were fighting for the car, ut Buick's general manager Ed Rollert convinced GM design czar Bill Mitchell that Buick was the perfect division, ikely because Rollert agreed not to alter the stunning design of the original "La Salle" design sketches Mitchell presented.
Out of37,658Rivieras built in 1965, nly2122were ordered with option codefor the 425 CID Super Wildcat V-8 rated at 360 Horsepower and 465 ft. lbs. of torque at 2800 rpms. This is one of those very rare cars.ENGINES
Referred to affectionately as the "nailhead" due to the shape and size of the valves and their configuration, he425-cu.in. V-8 was stout!
The engine's original design debuted in 1953. The 425 is heavily based on the401-cu.in. V-8, ith an 1/8-inch increase in bore, llowing most of the engine internals to carry over. All425-cu.in. V-8s feature a unique camshaft, owever, ith more conservative valve timing.The Super 425featuresa dual four-barrel, 00cfm Carter AFB carburetor setup.With the twin four-barrels. The 425 was good for an easy 360hp and 465-lbs.ft. of torque at just 2,800 rpm. Coded LX by Buick, he 425 features 10.25:1 compression and has hydraulic lifters. Both the block and heads are cast iron.They breathethrough cast-iron exhaust manifolds, nto a special 21/4-inch dual exhaust system that was laminated to control noise. The standard Riviera had duals, ut with only 2-inch pipes.TRANSMISSIONS
The 1964RivieraSuper 425had a greatly improved transmission,the Super Turbine 400.TheSuper Turbine 400 featured a reinforced valve body. These transmissions also benefited from recalibration that allowed theSuperWildcat425to shift at higher rpm. The three-speed Super Turbine 400 featured four pinions in each planetary gearset, ersus the usual three.Gears were engaged by a combination of overrunning clutches and multi-disc clutches, o that the overrunning clutch for each lower gear released while the multi-disc clutch for the next higher gear engaged, uaranteeing an ultra-smooth transition between gears. Kickdown on the Super Turbine 400 is controlled electrically. And to compensate for changes in altitude, he transmission features an aneroid bellows that adjusts hydraulic pressure automatically. These revisions caused Car and Driver magazine to refer to the Super Turbine 400 as "without question, he best automatic transmission in the world."DIFFERENTIALSThe standard&only-rear axlein the Super 425was a 3.23-1ratio.Rivieras ordered with the Super Wildcat425 dual quad packagepackage were all gifted with a limited-slip differential.
In their day......and even in some present-day circles-Buick's massive 12-inchfinned-aluminum, our-wheel-drumbrake system was considered the best in the industry. While the brake linings covered a massive 320.5 square inches of swept area, he aluminum drum's superior conductivity allowed Buick to get by with less lining area per pound of vehicle than most other big car manufacturers. Motor Trend noted that the Riviera's "Al-Fin" brakes would "survive at least two more panic stops than other cars with cast-iron drums all-around." And even when they did fade, hey were noted to recover in half the time as cast iron drums. These Duo-Servo brakes were backed with Moraine vacuum boost as a standard feature.They had air-cooled fins in the front and finned drums in the rearBODY
A bit of trivia: All 1963 to 1965 Riviera doors were assembled without the exterior doorskin in place. This allowed assemblers to fit the frameless door glass properly; and then the outer doorskin was attached. The all-steel body of the1963-1965Riviera is stout and, n contrast to A-body Buicks, ore rust resistant.Thicker gauge metal was used on Rivieras a
INTERIORThe interior in the 1964Riviera is a beautiful mix of chrome, inyl and authentic walnut veneer. trivia: The Riviera's high center console was actually an engineering benefit. It allowed a straight route for the driveline, o that the Riviera could use a simple universal joint on its two-piece propeller shaft, ather than the more complex and expensive constant-velocity joint used in the other big Buicks.REPRODUCTION PARTS
The high nickel content in Buick nailhead V-8s makes them extraordinarily durable. Though not as common as the Chevrolet350-cu.in. V-8, good number of mechanical parts are readily available from a number of Buick engine specialists, nd even older neighborhood auto parts stores. The Super Turbine 400-essentially the same as the Turbo Hydra-Matic 400-is one of the world's great automatic transmissions, nd is easily rebuilt by any competent transmission shop.This transmission and enginewere completely rebuilt. The car runs fantastic and shifts exactly as it should...this is an amazing car to drive and hard to believe it is 52 years old!
I drove this car a few days ago all around Boca Raton....I am hard pressed to remember when I've received as many honks, aves, humbs up and people actually stopping &getting out of their cars to take photos of this car.
I realize most would call this car a "Trailer Queen" I really don't like this name given to any vintage car that is restored to this #1 level...and to be blunt, e do not want to sell this car to anyone who is going to onlyput it inside a trailer and take it to only car shows to win a "best of show" or 1st place award.
This car should be enjoyed and driven. If you want to take it to a car show thats a few hundred miles away...then PLEASE drive it toand from the show.Your smile will be as broad as mine was when I spent a few hours driving it around South Florida on a gorgeous day. I started off with the AC on and the power windows up.....but the AC blows so cold...and the weather was so glorious...that after twenty minutes, lowered all the windows, urned off the AC and cranked upthere FM station playing oldies and enjoyed the great South Florida day.
I could talk about this incredible car for hours....but better than more details...please study every photo and then pick up the phone and call me at(954) 873-6495and I'll give you the lowest acceptable price.
This car is inside myresidential air-conditioned garage....Hire an inspector or even better come in person. This is guaranteed to be a "NO DISAPPOINTMENT" 52 year old PRISTINE very collectable Buick Riviera at it's finest.
