Description:

1973 Buick Riviera

RARE 1973 BUICK RIVIERA DIAMOND BACK - BOAT TAIL. RUNS WELL WHEN FED GASOLINE DIRECTLY INTO CARB. TRANSMISSION IS FINE. NEW TIRES. NEW RADIATOR. CAR MOVES FREELY UNDER ITS OWN POWER, YET IT NEEDS NEW BRAKE LINES & NEW FUEL LINES TO RUN AND DRIVE PROPERLY.
ENGINE IS GREAT. NO WEIRD SMOKE OR UNUSUAL NOISES. IT'S SOLID & POWERFUL & SOUNDING VERY HEALTHY, JUST AS THESE ENGINES WERE ALWAYS KNOWN FOR THEIR POWER & DECADES OF RELIABILITY.
MY CUSTOMER BOUGHT THIS CAR FROM AN EBAY SELLER A COUPLE OF MONTHS BACK HERE IN PALM BEACH. HE BROUGHT IT TO MY RESTORATION SHOP TO BRING IT BACK TO LIFE AS ONE OF HIS DREAM CARS FROM HIS TEENAGE YEARS. ONCE I SPENT A LITTLE TIME TO GET TO KNOW THE CAR, & APPRAISED IT PROPERLY, HE DECIDED THAT SOME OF HIS OTHER PROJECT CARS HAVE A HIGHER PRIORITY AT THIS TIME. HE REGRETS TO SELL, AS I DO.
HE PAID $7,000 FOR IT 2 MONTHS AGO. WE INSTALLED NEW RADIATOR AND MADE THE CAR RUN SWEETLY AGAIN. WE ARE HOPEFUL THAT HE CAN RE-COUP MOST OF HIS INVESTMENT ON THIS TRULY WORTHY RESTORATION PROJECT. LOW RESERVE TO SELL IT IMMEDIATELY. CLEAR TITLE IN HAND. INSPECTIONS WELCOME & ADVISED.
THE CAR HAD A VINYL TOP. THERE IS NORMAL RUST ISSUES WHERE THE TOP TRAPPED MOISTURE OVER THE YEARS. IT HAS OTHER NORMAL RUST ISSUES AT THE BOTTOM OF THE FENDERS, HARDLY NOTICEABLE ON LOWER, OUTER DOORS & BEGINNING TO SHOW BUBBLES ON THE LOWER QUARTER PANELS. MINOR AT THIS POINT, IT'S STILL A NICE LOOKING CAR FROM 10 FEET, NOT TOO NOTICEABLE, YET WILL NEED ATTENTION IN THE NEAR FUTURE. THE TRUNK FLOOR NEEDS SECTIONS REPLACED. THEY ARE CHEAP ON EBAY. THE FLOORS ARE SOLID, NO HOLES, YET DULL THUD, INSTEAD OF THAT PERFECTLY SOLID SOUND.
IT WAS ORIGINALLY A NORTHERN CAR. THEREFORE, THE DASH IS NEAR PERFECT CONDITION. NO CRACKS AT ALL. INTERIOR IS OVERALL VERY NICE, YET WILL NEED SOME RE-UPHOLSTERY WORK TO BE PERFECT AGAIN. VERY USABLE AS IS FOR THE NEXT FEW YEARS, IF THAT IS YOUR CHOICE. ALL WINDOWS WORK PROPERLY AS DOES EVERYTHING ELSE IN THE INTERIOR AS FAR AS I HAVE BEEN ABLE TO DETERMINE. ALL EXTERIOR LIGHTS WORK AS THEY SHOULD. IT'S A PRETTY DAMN STRAIGHT & CLEAN CAR OVERALL, BUT AS ANY 40+ YEAR OLD CAR, IT NEEDS TENDER LOVING CARE TO BRING IT BACK TO ITS FORMER GLORY.
