1957 Buick Super Riviera
You always love it when you can find a classic that was a professional's personal project. So not only is this 1957 Buick Super Riviera Sedan a stunning V8 classic, but also it has been restored with a superior level of personal care. The owner of a restoration shop took this on as a family project. And that's a good thing, because this Buick is for lovers of details. The Belmont Green and white two-tone is a newer application when the car was restored a couple of years ago. These two colors are expertly intertwined, and the ridge in the body line is a masterful stroke to use as a color barrier. Plus, the red streak within this feature nicely coordinates with the painted trim around the bright wheel covers. So this is a very thoughtful classic. Plus, the Riviera specification is particularly impressive on the sedans. After all, you get a larger pillar-less hardtop that's emphasized further by the dip in the full-length trim that mirrors the slope of the roofline. And this also carries all the best of a proper '50s machine Ã¢â‚¬â€œ from the acers of chrome to the well-integrated tailfins. The green interior looks nice against the green of the exterior. That's a good thing, because this pillar-less hardtop gives people an easy view inside. The wide benches are finished in a comfortable cloth, and so with the amount of room in this luxury sedan, it's the perfect classic to enjoy with family and friends. The Buick crest steering wheel is thin and has that kind of instant sense of grip that we seemed to have lost over the years. Buick's design team really hit a home run with the entire dash. The appearance combines sporting elements like machined panels with elegant dials for a distinctively upscale appearance that still feels premium today. The Nailhead V8 was given a nice upgrade in displacement in '57 to 364 cubic inches. The consignor believes this is the original motor for the car, and so you'll love how the engine bay looks authentic right down to the turquoise block color and large air cleaner. Topped with a four-barrel carburetor, this has the power to be a true cruising Buick. The Dynaflow automatic transmission adds to the easy cruising feeling.
