This is a 1965 Buick Riviera.   The car has been rebuilt from head to toe.   Its not numbers matching.   It is the perfect weekend cruiser or run it to your local car show. it was rebuilt to be driven and enjoyed.   The car has been documented through a 4 year rebuild.   Rebuild was completed in mid 2016. engine break in is complete and runs strong.   I have photos of everything. the floor pans. frame.   

Hagerty Price guide estimates value at $35. 00.   NADA Guides list a High Retail price of 36000 and an avg retail price of 16800.   This car is above avg because everything is new. but not perfect so doesn't deserve High retail pricing. so middle of the road.   Car has over $20k in parts installed

Car has 401 Engine. Turbo 400 3 speed trans with a switch pitch converter.   Power windows (manual vent windows). power drivers seat (4 way)
Air Conditioning via Vintage Air kit.

So many new parts. if its rubber. its new.   If its electrical. its new   All switches. motors and bulbs except wiring. which was inspected pin to pin  all insulation was sound and everything in the car works
Engine rebuilt - not numbers matching - bored . 030 over with mild cam and electronic ignition and electric choke.   Original carb and manifolds.   Aluminum timing chain cover. new water pump.   Air Cleaner as seen in pic is actually just modified from original housing. so factory air filter still used.
Body was removed from frame. suspension was completely rebuilt (bushings/ball joints/springs - 2 inch drop) A pic was supplied of the only rust we found during the tear down.   All holes were stripped back and filled with tack welding. then rust inhibited and painted.
New steering gear box. new power steering pump.
Drive shaft was rebuilt and balanced by pro shop.
Transmission rebuilt by reputable shop in town.
Axle was torn down. center section inspected by shop and deemed serviceable.   Installed back in axle housing with new seals and new axle bearings.
Brakes are all new seals. new shoes.   Factory Aluminum finned front drums. New master and brake booster.
All steel of the body is straight and original.   No rust and decent paint.   Paint has minor flaws.
Chrome is in good condition. no rust spots.   Some stainless around the windows is dented and both bumpers are not straight (believe the car was jacked or towed by bumpers in past)
Interior is all reupholstered in Saddle color vinyl using materials from Clarks Corvair.   New headliner.   I have sun visors but never redid or installed.
Dash was repaired with Dashtop cap. small chips in plastic of console
Wood is hand cut veneer. not the standard aftermarket kit.
Radio is Custom Autosound with new front and rear speaker.   Used 2 channel speakers. so has good stereo sound.   Radio has USB connection for phone or MP3 player hook up and also has Amp preouts installed if you want to add a sub later.
Exhaust is 'factory' style kit made by Waldrons Exhaust. using their Imposter muffler
New fuel sending unit installed in gas tank that was removed and inspected.
All lights work. in and out.   Power antenna works.
Tires are new

This car requires nothing. put gas in it and drive.   Brakes are still stock arrangement. suspension is still stock arrangement except lower springs.   Vintage Air was installed to clean up firewall for restomod- hot rod look.  

Have questions feel free to ask.   It was a fun project for me. now that Im done. its time for someone to take it over.   Enjoy it and make it your own.   Selling with factory service manuals. owners manual and technical sheets I have for headlight troubleshooting/adjustment

Buyer responsible paying and arranging for pick up or shipping.   Deposit required within 24 hours via Pay Pal.   Final Payment within 3 days of auction end.   Payment in Cash or cashiers check only.
