Description:

1965 Buick Riviera GRAN SPORT TRIBUTE

BEAUTIFUL 1965 BUICK RIVIERA GRAN SPORT TRIBUTE WITH DUAL QUADS & ALUMINUM FINNED VALVE COVERS.

I PURCHASED THIS CAR IN 2011. I SAVED IT FROM A VERY LONG STORAGE IN A MICHIGAN BARN. IT HADN'T BEEN REGISTERED SINCE 1982.BUT TO THE OWNERS CREDIT, E DID START IT AND YARD DRIVE IT PERIODICALLY. HE WAS THE 2ND OWNER OF THE CAR & CLAIMED THE MILEAGE WAS CORRECT. BUT SHOWED NO PROOF OF IT. THE PAINT WAS VERY DULL. BUT IT ONLY HAD SOME MINOR RUST IN THE LOWER REAR 1/4'S. WHICH I HAD PROPERLY REPAIRED PRIOR TO PAINT.

THE LT CODE 401ci NAILHEAD RUNS STRONG! MILD CAM, LUMINUM VALVE COVERS & DUAL QUADS (WITH RECHROMED AIR CLEANER)WERE INSTALLED IN 2012. NO LEAKS. NO ISSUES. 4 NEW WHEEL CYLINDERS, LL 4 DRUMS TURNED & NEW FRONT BRAKE HOSESIN 2014.

REPAINTED IN 2013. PPG BASE COAT CLEAR COAT WAS USED. IT CAME OUT VERY NICE! IT IS STRAIGHT AS AN ARROW & HAS A MIRROR LIKE FINISH.BOTH BUMPERS WERE RECHROMEDAT THAT TIME.

IN 2014 IINSTALLED A NEW HEADLINER, AIL PANELS, EAR SHELF PANEL &FRONT SEATS WERE REUPHOLSTERED. I PLANNED TO KEEP THIS CAR FOR A WHILE. SO I DECIDED TO MAKE MYSELF AMILD CUSTOMGRAN SPORT THE WAY I WANTED IT. SINCE I'M NOT A BIG FAN OF WOODGRAIN. I CHOSE TO CHANGE THE INTERIORWOODGRAIN TO CARBON FIBER.

THE CAR STARTS UP EASILY, UNS GREAT & DRIVES STRAIGHT! THE REAR MUFFLER WAS REMOVED & IS RUNNING ON THE TWO SMALLER RESONATOR MUFFLERS. I DID THIS TO GIVE IT A DEEP THROATYTONE. I THINK IT SOUNDS GREAT!

I HAD THE CLAMSHELL VISORS SODA BLASTED WHEN THE CAR WAS BEING PAINTED. BUT MADE THE MISTAKE OF USING A PAINT PEN TO REFINISH THEM. AFTER A FEW WASHES MOST OF THE PAINT WASHED OFF. YOU CAN SEE THAT IN THE PHOTOS.

ITEMS THAT WILL NEED ATTENTION.

THE HEADLAMP MOTOR HAS BEEN PULLED & NEEDS TO BE REBUILT (OR CONVERTED TO NEWER STYLE MOTORS TO OPEN THEHEADLAMP DOORS). THE CLAMSHELLS OPEN & CLOSE MANUALLY VERY EASILY.

THE LEFT TURN SIGNAL DOES NOT CANCEL. SO YOU HAVE TO MANUALLY CANCEL IT.

THE POWER DRIVER SEAT STOPPED WORKING EARLIER THIS YEAR.

ALL 4 POWER WINDOW MOTORS WORK. BUT THE RIGHT REAR NEEDS TO BE ADJUSTED. SEEMS TO HAVE GONE OFF TRACK. BUT IS SITTING IN THE CLOSED POSITION WITH NO ISSUE.

THE A/C COMPRESSOR & CONDENSERWERE REMOVED. BUT WILL BE INCLUED IN THE SALE. I KEPT THE COMPRESSOR OFF BECAUSE IT BLOCKED THE VALVE COVERS. I LIKE THE WAY IT LOOKS BETTER WITHOUT IT.

ORIGINAL RADIO WORKS BUT NEEDS NEW SPEAKERS. I PLANNED TO UPDATE THE AUDIO SYSTEM BUT NEVER GOT AROUND TO IT. SO THAT WILL BE LEFT UP TO THE NEW OWNER.

YES, HIS CAR COULD USE A FEW THINGS. BUT NOTHING THAT TAKES AWAY FROM IT'S BEAUTY. IT'S NOT A #1 SHOW CAR. BUT IT ISA GREAT CAR THAT YOU CAN GET IN & DRIVE TO LOCALCRUISE NIGHTS PROUDLY. SO WITH ALL THINGS CONSIDERED.I BELIEVE IHAVE PRICED IT QUITE FAIRLY. I BELIEVE THE NEXT OWNER WILL BE VERY HAPPY WITH THIS CAR.

MORE PHOTOSCAN BE MADEAVAILABLE. THERE ARE ALSO2 VIDEOS OF IT ON YouTube.

I'M HAPPY TO ANSWER ALL SERIOUS QUESTIONS. I CAN ASSIST WITH ANY INSPECTIONS & SHIPPING AT THE BUYERS EXPENSE. I CAN ALSO RECOMMEND A TRANSPORT BROKER THAT I'VE USED IN THE PAST.
