1964 Buick Riviera401 Nailhead V8 Engine Automatic
The personal-luxury car niche, pioneered by Ford in 1958, had become a viable market in the early sixties. After 200,000 four-seat Thunderbirds had sold, GM's first response was the 1961 Olds Starfire, followed by the Pontiac Grand Prix a year later. In late 1962, Buick unveiled the Riviera, a beautiful two-door sport-coupe that could out-corner, out-brake, and out-accelerate the T-bird. But it couldn't outsell it.
Buick Nailhead V-8
Base motor on the 1964 Riviera was the 401 cubic-inch Nailhead V8, so named for the unorthodox vertical position of its valves, which resembled large nails. The valves were tiny for an engine of its size, but helped produce lots of low-end power. With a 10.25-1 compression ratio and single 4-barrel carburetor, the 401 motor produced 445 ft-lbs of torque and 325 horsepower.
