1963 Buick RivieraYou are bidding on a 1963 Buick Riviera with a custom paintjob. I priced it reasonably (low end) if you compare it to the other cars around here, ou'll pay about the same for a stock car that needs paint and interior work! Let alone have a reliable rebuilt drivetrain.
My desire for a different project is your gain! I'm looking for an old school GM split window pickup truck.
I cleaned the car quickly to look somewhat presentable. It needs a final buff and thorough cleaning of wax residue from the first cut n buff. It's been sitting in my garage for about 2-3 months as installed some parts that were removed during paint.*The factory original 401 Nailhead was rebuilt with a mild cam. There is probably two (2-5) miles on the rebuilt drivetrain!
*The original Dynaflow 2 speed transmission was rebuilt at the same time.
*The floors and trunk were replaced.
*The door handles, mblems and body trim were eliminated.
*The hood was louvered and looks awesome with the flame tips leading your eyes to them.*New exhaust with Cherry Bomb mufflers.
*New gas tank with new lines.
A new white headliner and the all new white vinyl seat interior (everything was ordered from OPGI). New door panels (front and back). I did save the original wood panels and trim incase the new owner wanted to reinstall them later. New white Mooneyes steering wheel. The center console was painted black to compliment the new black rug. I blacked out the entire dash leaving only the factory trim pieces in the original stainless look (the trim was not rechromed just buffed with a steel 000 wool pad). The front seatbelts were installed, ut the rear lap belts were not in stock.
The car sits 3 inches lower with the fresh Jamco lowering kit, hich consists of shorter coils and shocks all around.
The brand new blacked out 15 inch American Racing rims and new thin whitewall tires (2-5 miles on them) compliment the car nicely. Simple, lean and they don't grab any attention away from the extensive custom paintjob.
If you are serious I can send you an I-phone video of the car running, ust text/call me at (203)521-7858.
Connecticut is a NO TITLE state for classics. I did not register the vehicle, will sell it with a Bill of Sale that will contain all my pertinent information.
Bad points at this time:
-No weatherstripping installed or included. Rubber gasket on the front small vent windows is brittle.-Needs front end alignment with the new wheels and tires. During braking the car shifts a little to the left.
-The trunk is bare, o spare and or anything else in there. I do have several original parts that I will throw in like the door wood panel with the molding for the front and rear, he original brown steering wheel, nd some trim gaskets. I will also include the "original" drip rails with an all new felt kit (still in the box). -Some lights might not function at this time because either I have not updated the bulbs and or not connected them. The factory harnesses and fuse boxes are in place (no bird's nests).
-The front grille and or bumperswere not rechromed. I will include the front headlight grilles, rim and lights too!
-Wipers arms are not installed. The wiper motor does run when you turn the wiper knob on the dash!
I'm being honest by pointing out all the minor necessary details I can, bviously if you think it's too much work please do not bid and or complain later. I want to move onto another project. I encourage everyone to inspect the vehicle in person, o nothing I described above ismisconstrued. The car is located in Trumbull, onnecticut (approx. an hour from NYC).If you have any further questions feel free to contact me on my personal cell phone (203)521-78 five eight. I work all different kinds of hours, o please leave a message and I will return your call as promptly as I can!
The buyer, OU, re responsible for shipping. I will make time for your scheduled transportation pickup.
Please don't waste my time and the time of other interested parties by not coming through with this auction.
The car is sold as is, hanks for your time and interest.
