The Buick Rivera has always been a personal luxury car. When they decided to build a convertible version, it was bound to be a hit. But building it to Buick standards was expensive and relatively few were built. Here is an opportunity to buy one that is almost like new. There are only believed to be 22,205 actual miles on this sweet ride. Check it out.

This car has been well cared for and lead a gentle life. The white paint is original with only minor imperfections on the front end. The body lines are clean the gaps between the panels are consistent. The front end leads with a nice chrome grill flanked by quad headlight trimmed in chrome underlined by a nice chrome bumper. Chrome also outlines the wheel wells and runs along the rocker panel. A thin red pinstripe follows the curves of the body down the side and the back resolves smoothly down the trunk to taillights proudly displaying a stylized R. The car looks dapper with the roof up, but stunning when it is lowered and dressed out with its red boot. White wall tires and wire basket hub caps look absolutely perfect on this car and complete the look nicely.

Open the door or just peek inside if the roof is down and you will be greeted by a rich red interior. The door panel has a full-length armrest so you can be sure to find a comfortable position for your arm on long cruises. Of-course there are power windows and locks at your fingertips and as well as the controls for the power seat, and a door pull is trimmed in wood as is a speaker. The seats are incredibly comfortable pleated luxury, just as you would expect in a Buick. The steering wheel has a wood inlay and sits in front of a wood dash that stretches from side to side. In the center is the speedometer with the odometer in it that indicates the super low miles this car has traveled and in the center are the buttons for the ventilation system and climate control. An FM/cassette player is below them next to the power convertible top switch.

Under the hood is a 307 cubic inch V8 that provides good power and torque to get this personal luxury car down the road in distinguished style. It is the original engine of-course and is completely stock. This is the first of the front wheel drive Rivieras, so power is sent to the front wheels via a 3-speed automatic transmission. The front suspension is a torsion bar setup operating through control arms with a beefy sway bar to provide an excellent ride along with good road holding and power front disc brakes provide good stopping ability. At the rear, semi trailing arms with another sway bar work through coil springs to assure a good ride, and with no differential back there, make for plenty of room in the trunk. The car rides on 215/70R15 tires all around.

A White on Red Buick convertible. What are you waiting for? Come on down and drive this one home!
