The transmission shifts smoothly through all the gears and the temperature always remains cool!This is a rare opportunity to own a very striking and great daily driving example of an always rust free 1964 Buick Riviera - one highly desirable and collectible example of one of the outstanding GM designs of the sixties, reflecting the styling supremo of Bill Mitchell with a masterful blend of curves and razor-edges, dubbed the anti-Thunderbird and 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 it's 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 it's debut at the Paris auto show in 1963. This landmark design would continue for only two years until 1964 before a hidden headlight change in 1965, making these two particular years of 1963/4 probably the most collectible but with all these 63-65 model cars boasting 'Milestone Car' status.
