1983 Buick Riviera
This 1983 Buick Riviera is one of those "Barn Finds". although it wasn't found in an actual barn. The condition that it was found in is what you see. We did aclean-up of the car and afterward took the pictures that you see. In addition to the pictures please read through thedetailed listing of what we found when checking out the car.
The interior is in overall good condition but does have rips on the front seats and cracks in the dash padas seen in the pictures. Replacement seat covers can be found on the internet without too much work. The convertible top and rear window is in good condition with only a couple minor imperfections. The top looks great after a cleaning and the power top worked when we put the top down for the pictures. There is a small crack in the windshield. And although the paint is not the original paint, it is in good condition and appears that it has been repainted at some point.
The engine starts right up on the first crank. The undercarriage is indecent condition for the year. It does have some rust on the suspension and frame whichcan be seen in the pictures. The worst part of the rust underneath is the wheel arch pinch welds that are rusted out.The exhaust is cracked at the Y pipe. The axle boots are cracked and are leaking.Upper and lower ball joints have play and should be replaced. The tie rod ends should also be replaced due to leaking boots and excess play. We drove the car here from the previous owners house and it drove fine. The tires look brand new and measure at 10/32 tread. The brakes are good and measureat 6/32B in the front and 8/2B in the rear.
The odometer shows 61869 but we believe it may be turned over. The titleis clean and lists miles "exempt" due to the year of the car. And of course the car is being sold "as is" due to age and miles.
This car is a rare find that would be a great "driver" with a little TLC. I have been told by two other Riviera convertible owners that they only made 3200 Riviera convertibles. Anyone would be proud to drive this car. It has been the most popular car on our lot since we acquired it. It is a realeye catcher that draws everyone to it as soon as they see it.
