1965 Buick RivieraThis 1965 Buick Riviera has been chopped 4", lowered using lowering springs from OPG, and the door handles have been shaved and wing vents removed. The stock 401 Nailhead and Turbine automatic transmission run strong. They have not been modified, but you have to TRY NOT to do burnouts! If you are not familiar with the legendary 401 Buick Nailhead, I encourage you to do some research. It is one bad a.. motor! This car has a very sinister outlaw look. It is more of a rat rod show car than a "perfection" show car. You will be noticed and it is a hoot to drive!
I have spent and installed over $3,500 of new parts including:
New springs, isolators and retainersNew shocksNew shock and swaybar linksNew brakesNew batteryNew custom exhaustNew Pinion sealNew front wheel bearingsNew 16 gallon fuel cellProfessionally rebuilt drive shaft and center link
Known issues:NOT working - a/c, horn, windshield wipers, right front turn signal, radio, clockNO seat belts, no headlight clam shells motor (everything is there except the motor and I like them open anyway)The speedometer runs approx 10 mph under true mphI don't know how many miles are on the engine etc. The odometer reads 8,641, but that certainly can't be right. I don't know if the engine or transmission have ever been rebuilt, but both run very strong.Tires are in only fair condition (tread is good, but there are some minor sidewall cracks)Paint is maybe a 6 out of 10. 10 being "perfect" show quality.Because this car has been chopped, it has no side windows
If you are a serious buyer, I encourage you to come see and drive this wild Buick.
