Although hideaway headlights were part of the original design for the first-generation Buick Riviera, the concept was scrapped for cost reasons in 1963 and 1964. But by 1965 designers got their way and one of the most iconic and collectible Buicks of all time was born. ’65 was also the first year to feature the Gran Sport performance option.
Clad in very attractive Bamboo Cream (paint code Y) over black interior, paint quality is excellent and all panels are straight with good gaps on this 1965 Buick Riviera GS. Chrome, bumpers, trim, glass, rubbers, etc. are nice; undercarriage is very good. Most of the trim is either new or restored; correct wheels with newer whitewalls.
The interior shows well with excellent seats, door panels, carpet, headliner, dash and center console. Wood veneers in door panels and center console are very nice.
Under the hood is a 425 cubic inch “Nailhead” V8 with dual quads. Automatic transmission and 3.42 limited slip rear end. Well-optioned like most Rivieras with power steering, power brakes and power windows.
Full mechanical restoration was carried out to the same high standard as the cosmetics.
One of six classic Rivieras being offered from the Tom Scott collection.
