There were less than 1,700 of these 1983 Buick Riviera convertibles built with the desirable V8 engine, which means the ones that survive in this kind of original condition today are quite few. So the value price on this low-production numbers-matching droptop is just the cherry on top.

This Riviera was almost like owning a custom car backed by a factory warranty. Few people were willing to pay nearly double the Riviera coupe price that it took to pluck a car off the assembly line and let the professionals at ASC do their softtop magic. That's why this special Buick has been cared for so well and the sheetmetal has stayed so straight. You can see this in the trim running down the sides and the pinstripe that perfectly highlights the gentle curves of the 6th generation Riviera. You can see all of this particularly well thanks to a professional respray of the original white paint. It now benefits from the deeper kind of shine that comes with a modern clearcoat finish, which is always something nice to have on a sunshine-friendly droptop. Even the details are still right. The chrome is bright, compete, and has that perfect hint of patina to tell you its original. All the emblems are present, lenses are beautifully clear, and it even still has the original wire wheel covers with special center insignia.

The burgundy leather interior is a great complementing standout color to the bright white exterior. It appears to be original, which says a lot about the care that has gone into this one for over 30 years. The condition of the seats, carpets, and dash tells you this was not left with its top off too long on sunny days. The burled walnut veneer is some of the most handsome trim for any car in the 80s, and as expected with such an expensive convertible, it came loaded. This one has power seats, power windows, tilt wheel, and power convertible top. There are also some nice upgrades such as the Kenwood AM/FM/CD player, and the air conditioning has been upgraded to R-134a for easier servicing. So while this Buick looks very original, there has been nice attention paid to make sure you can enjoy it for much longer drives.

Under the hood is the optional 307 cubic inch V8 that is original to this car. The V8 motor was a valuable piece to give the Riviera the right kind of torque to move it around with authority. The attitude on this one was to be the comfortable cruiser that took the place of the Cadillac convertible that departed a few years prior. That's why it came with luxury driving features like the grand touring suspension and four-speed overdrive automatic transmission. This is the kind of classic that you're not intimidated to take on the long trips thanks to power steering and four-wheel disc brakes.

Well maintained, well loved, and exceptionally rare, this Riviera convertible lets you arrive in style and knows how to get you noticed. It even comes with the original owner's manual. So you can tell this is a cherished a collector car at budget hatchback price. Call today!!!
