Steel Dreamz is proud to present an absolutely exceptional example of a 1965 Buick Riviera Gran Sport with its original matching #S 425/360HP 2 x 4V (LX Code) V8 Super Wildcat engine and original automatic transmission. It is loaded with original Gran Sport options including dual exhausts, performance gearing and factory options of bucket seats, center console with floor shifter, air conditioning, power driver seat, power brakes, power windows, power antenna, tilt steering wheel, original AM/FM Sonomatic Buick radio, and Cruise-master speed control. We have just completed a full Rotisserie frame off professional restoration. The car is finished in its original Burgandy Mist color paint with its original factory white bucket seat interior. The floor boards, trunk and all the typical rust-prone areas are completely solid and rust-free and the car has had no accidents or previous body damage. The car looks extremely impressive and was restored to completely original condition throughout with virtually no imperfections! The dashboard woodwork, the dashboard itself, the carpets and all the seats are in absolutely exceptional condition. All the chrome-work is also exceptional and the original spare wheel and jack is located in its compartment in the trunk. The original matching # 425cid/360HP 2 x 4 barrel LX code engine has been rebuilt to factory specs and is strong and powerful.This particular car drives absolutely magnificently - must be driven to be believed - drives straight as an arrow with no strange road wobbles, shakes or rattles - a truly remarkable automobile that will give any modern day sports car a run for its money! The car has power windows, power driver seat, air conditioning, dual exhausts and its original Buick AM/FM radio with a power antenna. The transmission shifts smoothly through all the gears, there are no oil leaks and the temperature always remains cool! A car for Buicks most affluent customers, the 1963-65 Buick Riviera reflected the styling supremo of Bill Mitchell with a masterful blend of curves and razor-edges respected by an army of industrial designers as an architectural landmark of the U.S industry and which has high repute amongst collectors for both its beautiful lines and smooth fast performance for a luxury coupe. One of the most beautiful cars America ever built as stated by none other than Sergio Pininfarina of Ferrari design fame at its debut at the Paris auto show in 1963. This landmark design of 1963-64 would continue for only two years until 1964 before the hidden headlight change in 1965. But it wasnt until the arrival of the 1965 Gran Sport that the truly sporty side of this sports car revealed itself. The GS had the gorgeous looks of the Riviera combined with the heart of a true muscle car! Unlike other Buicks, including the youth orientated Wildcat, the Riviera GS came with just one engine and transmission combination. Powering the GS was a potent 425 cid V8 with a 10.25:1 compression ratio. The engine produced 360 HP at 4400 rpm and 465 lbs ft of torque at 200 rpm. It put out .84 hp per c.i., very close to the legendary 1:1 ratio of Chrysler 300s and Corvettes. Hooked up to the 425 was the latest GM three speed Hydra-Matic which in 1965 Car & Driver called without question, the best automatic transmission in the world! The Riviera GS had dual four barrel Carter AFB carbs, a dual exhaust system with large diameter pipes and bright metal engine accents including a large chrome plated air cleaner with polished ribbed valve covers! Full wheel covers and Gran Sport lettering below the Riviera script on the deck lid and front fenders helped set the car apart visually. A true Grand Tourer, the GS had a top speed of 123mph and Car & Driver reported a 7.2 second 0-60 time and an even better quarter mile run. In muscle car fashion the GS package also included a heavier front anti-roll bar than the standard Riviera, stiffer shock absorbers, stiffer |2 Door|Automatic Transmission|Rear Wheel Drive|Air Conditioning|Bucket Seats|Center Console|Cruise Control|Power Door Locks|Power Seats|Power Steering|Power Windows|Tilt Steering|Vinyl Seats|AM/FM Radio|Rear Locking Differential|
