This is a BEAUTIFUL - MOSTLY ORIGINAL SURVIVOR - 1979 Buick Riviera Luxury Coupe with only 46,233 ACTUAL - ORIGINAL - MILES since it was brand new !! You can now own a BEAUTIFUL Classic Riviera that is getting hard to find especially in the PAMPERED - LOW MILEAGE - TWO OWNER - MOSTLY FACTORY ORIGINAL condition that this Beauty is in !! The second owner told us the miles are actual - original miles but we have no way of proving it. Just look at this thing though !! It still retains its correctly mounted - FACTORY ORIGINAL - Buick cowl mounted data plate and its - FACTORY ORIGINAL - dash mounted vin plate, both of which are shown in pictures below. 1979 was the FIRST and BEST year for the 6th generation Riviera's and the year to have !! The Buick Riviera Coupe was a stunning body style in 1979 and still is some 35 years later !! You may NOT find another one this NICE !! If you can make it to Boise in the next ten days please come take a look at and drive this Classic Luxury Car, you won't be disappointed. THIS IS A QUALITY CAR FOR SURE !!

This BEAUTY still retains its STRONG - ORIGINAL - OPTIONAL - 350 CID V8 motor in it and it is running extremely well. The engine still retains the ORIGINAL four barrel intake manifold, ORIGINAL exhaust manifolds, ORIGINAL valve covers, ORIGINAL four barrel carb and the ORIGINAL air cleaner housing. The engine is backed by a - SMOOTH - three speed Turbo-Hydramatic automatic transmission which also functions very well. Sounds great too with the factory style exhaust system. The BEAUTIFUL - ALL FACTORY ORIGINAL !! - Code "965" - Oyster White Leather and Dove Gray faux wood grain accented luxury interior is in VERY NICE condition with a VERY NICE ORIGINAL Oyster White leather 55/45 split bench front seats with a fold down center arm rest and factory headrests, VERY NICE ORIGINAL Oyster White leather rear bench seat with a fold down center armrest, VERY NICE ORIGINAL Dove Gray cloth headliner, VERY NICE ORIGINAL Dove Gray cloth sunvisors, NICE ORIGINAL Riviera steering wheel, VERY NICE ORIGINAL matching Oyster White vinyl and dove gray faux wood grain accented door panels, VERY NICE ORIGINAL Dove Gray carpeting, VERY NICE ORIGINAL factory gauge clusters, VERY NICE ORIGINAL Faux Wod Grain dash and a VERY NICE ORIGINAL Dove Gray vinyl dash pad with NO CRACKS. In my opinion you're not going to find a much nicer FACTORY ORIGINAL interior in a 35 year old car than the one in this BEAUTY, UNBELIEVABLE, what a find !! The BEAUTIFUL - Code "11" - White exterior paint is EYE POPPING BEAUTIFUL with little to no wear showing other than several small chips, scratches and imperfections but is still bright, shiny and looks AWSOME as you can clearly see in the video above and pictures below. Oyster White leather interior and the matching white exterior finish is a GREAT color combination indeed ! How could you get any better ?!! Check out the FACTORY ORIGINAL - matching White vinyl Cabriolet top, which is also in good condition !! This Riviera is a great runner and a real nice looker. In true Buick fashion this car is nicely equipped to say the least including WORKING FACTORY AIR CONDITIONING that blows ICE COLD, factory power steering, factory power brakes with discs up front, good heater and defroster, factory power windows, factory power door locks, factory tilt and telescoping steering column, 6 way power front drivers' seat, factory cruise control, trip odometer, original clock which is no longer working, factory power delayed wipers, factory chrome dual remote side view mirrors, factory rear window defogger, factory back-up lights, factory cornering lights, front and rear seat belts, automatic trunk lid pull-down, factory electronic ride level control, factory original Delco Am / Fm stereo radio cassette tape player, factory power antenna, glovebox mounted power trunk release and the original day / night rear view mirror. All of the ORIGINAL rubber weatherstripping is soft, supple and in GREAT condition for being original. This Buick has great looks and smooth power to boot ! There are not many of these left on the roads for sure !

These vehicles have an appreciative group of owners any of which would be pleased to own this one. The suspension (including factory ride level) and drive line seem to be in good working order as well as the electrical system. The car also sports NICE - FACTORY ORIGINAL - Buick wire wheel covers with correct Riviera center caps and nearly new whitewall steel belted radial tires that look AWESOME on this car and really retain that clean "factory" look. This classic luxury car is a good investment opportunity and it is priced right ! This vehicle is in very good condition from top to bottom and from front to back. It will not disappoint someone looking for a good example of a sought after and hard to find Classic Luxury collector car which is not seen at every stop light for sure. If you have been looking but cannot find a Classic Buick Riviera worthy of your hard earned money look NO further because this is the one ! All of the ORIGINAL chrome and stainless steel exterior body trim and moldings are in BEAUTIFUL condition including VERY NICE ORIGINAL front and rear chrome bumpers, VERY NICE ORIGINAL rubber bumper guards, VERY NICE ORIGINAL chrome grill and headlight surrounds, NICE ORIGINAL badging and a VERY NICE ORIGINAL White vinyl cabriolet top. All of the ORIGINAL light lenses and reflectors are clear, bright and BEAUTIFUL !! The - CLEAN - SOLID trunk also sports the ORIGINAL Black carpet liner and jacking instruction decal. As noted in several of the pictures and in the video the rear plastic filler panel around the gas filler cap area is damaged and needs to be repaired. This vehicle is in nice mechanical condition and it runs and drives VERY WELL !! It is solid with respect to the overall mechanical condition as well as the overall cosmetic impression. I looked underneath and also included photos below, again this car is a NICE - SOLID - DRY - Idaho High Mountain Desert - western vehicle for its whole life and it shows !! In my opinion you're not going to find much nicer ORIGINAL FLOORS than the ones that are on this Beauty !! Please pay close attention to the picture and video above and the 89 ADDITIONAL PICTURES BELOW and this description as they will answer most if not all of your questions. If you need to speak to me my name is Kris and my telephone number is (208)585-7155 or you can email if you prefer. As always I tried to get as thorough and in depth with the photographs as possible.
