1964 Buick Riviera
Thanks for checking out this INSANE ride offered by M.E.S. Motorsports; where our cars are notorious for Making Everyone Stare! What we have for sale here is a highly optioned 1964 Buick Riviera that has been a 3 year project in the making. I must say that the end product was worth all the blood, sweat and beers as this is unlike any other Riv on the road. I would say that this beauty is in the Restomod family but it does retain a lot of its original features as well. This car was built to be driven and enjoyed and has less than 500 miles on it since completion. Here is the rundown:
History – We purchased the car about 3 years ago from a guy in PA that was attempting to rebuild the car and lost interest. Once it arrived, we knew that we had two choices. Resell the car at a loss as it was falsely misrepresented to us or strip it down and start all over. We chose the latter. So 3 years and a whole boat load of money later she’s finally done.
Drivetrain – The engine is a 401 Nailhead that has been totally rebuilt. We do have the specs available. It’s mated to Buicks version of the 400 turbo automatic transmission. Factory power steering, power brake, AC car. New wiring harness from Southern Rods. Ceramic coatedshort tube headers and new Magnaflow Hush power mufflers. Eldebrock carb and aftermarket chrome breather cover. We do have the original carb and cover that goes with it. We also installed new AC made by Southern Rods here in town. It’s their version of Vintage Air and it works great!
Exterior – This is where a lot of time and money has been spent. The car had some rust when it arrived so we sent to car to our friends at Harris and Son’s Auto Body and told them to go to work. They replaced the front floors pans and right rear passenger pan and did some rear quarter work. Once the car was totally rust free, prepped and primed, we decided to go with a beautiful, custom Satin blue paint as we wanted this car to be different. We shaved a lot of the side moldings and trim for a cleaner look. It turned out absolutely stunning and is one of the coolest paint jobs that I have ever seen. The bumpers are original and in pretty good shape but are not new. The majority of the other exterior parts such as the grill, window moldings etc. were cleaned, polished and reused. All the jambs were painted to match and the engine bay was blacked out.
Underneath – The underside was coated in black to give it and clean and uniform look.
Interior – Lots of new stuff here! New seat covers and seat foam. New carpet and floor mats. Recovered the rear deck and kick panels. Redyed the original dash cover. Original door panels, gauges, steering wheel and headliner. All in nice shape although the steering is showing its age and has some minor cracking. Updated heat/AC controls. New stereo with Ipod/Aux ports hidden in the cigarette lighter. New wood grain kit on the console was just installed on 9/4/16. A lot of the pictures show it without the console wood grain but I do have some new ones with it.
Suspension – The Riv retains the factory power drum brakes and it stops really well. We rebuilt the front center link and replaced all 4 tie rod ends so the car drives straight down the road. We debated on lowering it but did not so it is still at the stock ride height. It was also just aligned as well. Some other bushings andmisc itemswere replaced and the car drives very straight down the road.
Wheel/Tires – Brand new Ridler wheels. 18x8 up front and 20x9 in the rear. They are paired with new Z rated Hercules tires. 235/45/18 front and 245/45/20 rear. This wheel/tire combo looks awesome!
Known issues – Couple of rock chips on the hood due to our lovely highway construction here. Aforementioned steering wheel. Dome lighting not currently working.
Title – Clean SC title.

Last minute thoughts – This Riv is unlike any other out there and was built to be driven to cars shows and just for fun in general. It was designed by us to be different and reliable. From the factory this car came with power steering, power brakes, power windows, power drivers seat and factory AC just to name a few. Super highly optioned for a 1964! It runs great and looks awesome. With the updated heat/AC, power steering and brakes you can comfortably cruise anywhere and your wife and/or girlfriend hopefully won’t complain much! There are so many Camaro’s and GTO’s and Chevelle’s out there but very few of these. Be different! Don’t follow the crowd, lead the way and let them follow you!
About us - M.E.S. Motorsports, LLC was founded and started by myself and my best friend of almost 30 years now. While M.E.S. was “officially” put into action around 2012, it really started back in the 90’s during our high school days. Even back then we were in each other’s garage every weekend working on our cars. We have always shared the same enthusiasm for that one thing…..Automobiles! Hot rods, classics, customs, sports cars, fast cars, loud cars, basically anything with 4 wheels and an engine. For as long as I can remember we’ve always enjoyed “playing” with cars and recently decided to share our passion and creativity with others and thus M.E.S. Motorsports, LLCwas officially launched . At this time we are not licensed car dealers but rather auto enthusiasts with a passion for buying and selling cars to and from other auto enthusiasts and collectors. Our goal is to sell cars that you can actually get into and drive anywhere! We believe that cars are actually meant to be driven on the road and not just stored. A lot of the cars that we find are from individuals who are simply not using them anymore or that started restoring them but never finished. Some cars may just need some cleaning and a tune up while other may need paint or finish work. Whatever the case is, we try to address any issues and get them road worthy. We hate to see any car just sitting, rotting or not being used. We believe that everyone out there should have the car of their dreams and that they should be able to drive it anywhere they want to go!
