1965 Buick Riviera

The Riviera is a muscle car that crosses boundaries from a very capable street fighter to a high end luxury car. It is one of the finest Bill Mitchell designs, if not the single finest. A pinnacle car from a pinnacle era. The Riviera of 63-65 platform was shared by no other GM car and 65 is considered the best Buick Riviera of all times. Perhaps the most notable styling update for the 1965 Buick Riviera was its concealed headlights. Mounted vertically behind ribbed grilles on the leading edge of each front fender, the grilles were split in half, and opened like a clamshell when the headlight switch was turned on.

This Riviera has been treated to a custom restoration featuring a Brandywine paint finish. The body is straight and has been cleaned up by removing the exterior chrome trim and shaving the door handles. The bumpers, grille and headlight clamshells are very nice. The interior has been upholstered in a white leather with contrasting red piping on factory stock bucket seats.

The drivetrain is the famous Buick Nailhead V-8, displacing 425 cu in and has a dual quad carburetor set up and Offenhauser billet dress up accessories.The engine is backed by a variable pitch Turbo Hydramatic transmission.
