1965 Buick Riviera1965 Buick Riviera in very nice shape. The only year with clamshell headlights. The clamshell headlight doors function properly.
This car is a one family owned car since new and was restored a few years ago (late 90's). It was driven very sparingly and gently since then, nly on nice days, nd parked in a heated garage. It was taken off the road in 2004 and properly stored.
When the car was taken out of storage two months ago it was properly lubricated, ad the carburetor rebuilt, t was fueled with fresh gas and started up almost immediately.
Upon driving the car we noticed the front brakes were weak so new front brakes and wheel cylinders were installed. The rear brakes are fine. A tune up was also done.
The car runs, rives and stops very well and has great power. The original super turbine 400 transmission feels fine and the matching numbers 401 4BBL motor purrs like a kitten. The car handles well and I would not be afraid to drive this car anywhere.
Bring a tag and drive it home.
There is a flat spot in the starter bendix so, nce in a while, ou have to turn the key a second time to get the starter to engage.
The body is very nice and has had one repaint in its factory original green color. The floors and frame are solid as well. The trunk is very solid.
The interior is very nice. The seats and woodgrain look great. The carpet is a little faded but no rips.
The glass is all good with the exception of a little fading on a spot in the windshield. All 4 power windows work well.
The tilt column works fine with no play.
The speed minder on the speedometer works.
All the original manuals and protect-o-plate are still with the car.
The original AM radio is still in the dash. It turns on but only makes a loud whining noise out of the speaker. It does not get any stations
