Designed by Bill Mitchell, he pulled out all of the stops with the hidden headlights behind the clamshell doors (only a one year offering). GM styling giant Bill Mitchell often cited the Buick Riviera as one of his most successful concepts. With its knife-edged contours and features such as hideaway headlamps and flush window glass, the Riviera impressed the likes of Sergio Pininfarina and Raymond Loewy. The Riviera's outer beauty was matched by the elegance of its leather interior and, in the rare code A9 Gran Sport model, the power of its 425/360 HP dual 4-barrel V-8. The 1965 Riviera presented here is one of only 3,354 Gran Sports built, and it comes loaded with power steering and brakes, power windows, seats and antenna, AM/FM radio, air conditioning and tilt steering wheel. Its gleaming Seafoam Green Paint and Green interior combine to emphasize the timeless beauty of Mitchell's great design.
All numbers match, to our knowledge the engine has never been out and is all original under the hood. It has the correct numbers matching engine, also stamped LX on the engine pad, correct dual carb numbers only on a dual quad 425, and the ever so important BS transmission stamp (only on Gran Sport models of that year). Also has the finned fender liners and correct steering ratio only found on a Gran Sport in 1965. Original CA Black plate car (plates included with sale), original trim tag, receipts is included. Take it to the next level, do things over time or keep as is. Very rare and desirable car. asking $38,900 OBO, 415-373-2965
