Up for bids is our extremely clean 1963 Buick Riviera. Originally a California car, it was restored several years ago and they did a very good job. The transmission was upgraded to a 700R4, so the pattern on the center console is incorrect. Also, the speedometer cable needs to be replaced. It was done at the time of restoration, but we had an issue shortly after we purchased the vehicle. Other than that, the car is in very good shape, we only did a few things to it since it arrived. They are as follows:
New Water PumpNew ThermostatNew Thermostat Controlled Fan SwitchNew Electric Fan (radiator)Oil ChangeNew Transmission Pan and GasketSpark Plugs
The car runs and drives very well. It has been lowered with drop spindles approximately 2.5" from stock and sits on some clean, period correct Cragar wheels. Tires could be replaced, but work fine and have decent tread left overall. Exhaust has been upgraded and sounds menacing yet not obnoxious.
The car is not perfect, but it is in very good almost excellent shape, straight lines, and runs well.
It is being sold through a dealership, so a $109 dealership fee, tax title, and registration may apply (certain exemptions may be applicable).
