The power windows work smoothly. the cars drives well and tracks down the highway with authority. The switch pitch trans allows the car to accelerate very well and yet cruise smoothly on the highway. The engine bay is original. clean and presents well. The interior is in wonderful original condition. The chrome and stainless trim are in particularly fine condition. It is equipped with the optional wood wheel and it looks great. The console wood was refurbished. again. at considerable expense and with real veneer. The controls feel good and the doors open and shut like new.
The trunk is original. tidy and clean. The original radio is present and works. All the interior lighting works as it should. This is simply a fantastic car to cruise to a Cars and Coffee. a nice coastal run. a night on the town or even to relive the Rat Pack glory days and head to Vegas.
The original headliner is in beautiful shape and the original Buick visor mirror is present. It doesn't appear that this Riviera has ever been in an accident as it has all of its original panels and they fit well. Very recent work includes: the AC. trans service. headlight motor. clutch fan. plugs. fluids. ilters and exhaust. The car rides on its original Buick chrome sport wheels with nice center caps. The tires have good tread. The brakes work well and don't pull.
All of the difficult to find items like trim. grill. emblems. headlight visors. tc are present and in nice shape. This a very nice. unmolested Riviera. I purchased the car from the second owner that obtained it from the original owner's estate. The miles are claimed to be 54. 00 original and I have no reason to doubt this-although I was not provided records and proof of this.
Is this survivor perfect? No. it is a 49 year old car after all. The paint. while original. has many flaws-numerous chips. crapes. minor dings. etc. It has a couple areas where it appears that it was crudely touched up-no bondo or anything like that-just poorly applied touch up that doesn't quite match color. The paint looks better in the images than it actually is. If I were to keep the Riviera. I'd probably repaint it. I was reluctant to do so. because that original paint just has such a cool patina to it and I wanted a potential buyer to see there are no issues with the body. Also. the driver seat upholstery has split in a few places and the carpet shows a few wear areas. There are two plastic moldings that hold the power window switches-they are cracked and damaged and should be replaced(I am trying to source a pair and if I do will include with car).
To summarize. this is a great. survivor Buick. The 65 is the model everyone wants as it was the only year offered with clam shell headlight covers. A black plate. original California car. this is a wonderful Riviera that can be driven now and enjoyed. It is very rare to find one of these that has not been customized . usted or repainted. Should the new owner want to show restore a 65. this car would be a perfect candidate. I am offering the Riviera at no reserve. It is sold "As Is" with no warranty. implied or otherwise. It will also be offered for sale locally in the near future. so I reserve the right to end the auction if such a sale occurs. I have the clear California title in my name. Thanks for looking and good luck bidding.
