This 1985 Buick Riviera is a nicely preserved reminder of why we love individual luxury cruisers. With V8 power, a luxury A/C interior, overdrive transmission, and a fully independent suspension, you can cruise in vintage style and comfort for quite an affordable price.

We believe the white paint to be original to the car, and that kicks off a full survivor-style package. The body has been well cared for over the decades, and you can tell by how the pinstripe runs the length of the car like an uninterrupted line. This also serves to highlight gentle curves that Buick gave this personal luxury machine. The full package looks quite complete with bright bumpers, matching headlight bezels, and all the Riviera-specific badging that's seen everywhere. In fact, this one is complete right down to the original dealer badge that's still on the trunk. Of course, there is one obvious upgrade. The 20-inch American Racing alloys give this vintage Buick some cool modern flair.

Luxury means a loaded and well-coordinated interior. The original taupe feels supple on the seats and the front ones individually power adjust for the ultimate in comfort. It nicely matches with the door panels, carpeting, and dash for an unmistakable well-preserved factory appearance. This is joined with the burled walnut on all of these surfaces to create one of the most handsome interiors of the era. There are fold down armrests in each row, so you can choose to carry up to five family and friends with you, or go for more individualized comfort. You get to grab the three-spoke factory wheel that matches this taupe and wood motif, and gaze at the extra wide speedometer. From this command position you have an easy reach to all the features such as the power windows, power locks, tilt wheel, cruise control, and factory AM/FM/cassette stereo. Plus, the factory air conditioning has been upgraded to R134a to keep you cool while cruising.

The engine bay continues this well preserved and maintained presentation. The correct 307 cubic-inch V8 is a wonderful power plant to have, and it was shared with luxury machines like the Oldsmobile Toronado and the Cadillac Brougham. Topped with a four-barrel carburetor, it has the right kind of torque to move this Riviera around with authority. Buick wanted to make sure this has true grand touring comfort, it has features like the fully independent suspension and a four-speed overdrive automatic transmission. This is the kind of classic that's easy to take on the long trips thanks to power steering, modern low-profile tires, and front disc brakes.

Complete with owner's manual, this Riviera is luxurious, preserved, and above all, quite interesting. Don't miss out on this one. Call now!
