1984 BUICK RIVIERA
All the way back in 1949 Buick started using Riviera as a hardtop trim level but 1963 Riviera finally became a model all its own. With its inception Buick finally threw its hat in the ring of high end prestige luxury vehicles. The Riviera was well received and production continued all the way until 1999. These were Buick's luxury car with the original concept inspired by Rolls Royce but with a more edgy styling. With Cadillac not showing much interest in adding it to .....
their fleet Buick had their opportunity and dove in. 6 generations later and we have the 1984 Buick Riviera you see here. The car has the complete 80s luxury look with its long low stance and prominent tall grill. It is factory from front to rear down to the factory painted pinstripe. It is painted in a nice Black paint paired with the Black landau top. This was an era where chrome was still regularly used on vehicles and all of the chrome and trim on this thing looks great with zero pitting. It has the dual double headlights and the Riviera logo taillights which all work properly. The car looks great rolling down the road and the wire wheels with thin white walls are the perfect thing for this car to be rolling on.
The 5.0 V8 motor runs extremely well and very smooth. It starts right up every time and is a very nice car to drive. It is reliable and has been one of the cars you can just hop in and go. It just glides down the road. It just received a full service with all new fluids as well as some small repairs including all new front/rear shocks, fixing a transmission gasket and a new battery. Basically it was all looked over and if it mechanically needed something, it got it. It has an automatic transmission that shifts nice and smooth with no problems. Being a luxury car it is packed with all the top of the line features of its age including all power options.
The interior of the car is really in excellent shape and has been clearly well maintained. It is done in a light Beige cloth with Beige carpeting. It has bucket seats up front and a bench in rear with shared armrest. If there was any doubt that this was Buicks luxury vehicle just take a look at the dash. It features wood grain accents throughout which are in good condition. The trunk is nicely carpeted and houses the spare as well as the jack and tools.
If you are in the market for a cool classic that won't break the bank this is one to check out. These 80s cars are becoming more and more popular the older they get.
A real gem at $12,900.00!
