1971 Buick Riviera
1971 Buick Riviera, 455, auto, loaded with some rare factory options.
This is an amazing boat tail 1971 Buick Riviera, the first year for the bodystyle and arguably the most desirable year. It is an unrestored car with a single repaint in the factory color. It has the complete original interior and is in very nice condition.
This car was ordered and owned locally by a gentleman that took great pride and care of the car for decades. Upon his passing, it was willed to a family member and a few years later, purchased by me.
The rare options include a factory rim-blow steering wheel, speed warning system, and Max-Trac which was an early version of traction control. The rim-blow steering wheel was not functioning so was replaced by the more traditional three spoke version so the horns work (also has the optional added horns). The rim-blow steering wheel is included.
The factory a/c is complete and intact but will need checked out and converted to 134. I've bypassed the low pressure switch to test the compressor and it engages and runs quietly. It should merely need the system evacuated and leak checked, then converted to 134.
It has new whitewall tires on the factory chrome wheels. I've also replaced the exhaust from the dual mufflers back. The car runs and drives very nice and always draws attention when out and about.
