This Buick Riviera is one you'll want to see and definitely one
you'd love to drive. Powered by the Super Wildcat 425 cubic inch V8
making 340 HP and outfitted with a more aggressive 3.42 axle ratio
and stiffer, heavy-duty suspension. The stock dual exhaust pipes
were increased from 2.0 inches (51 mm) to 2.25 inches (57 mm)
inside diameter and had fewer turns to reduce back pressure.
Externally, the headlamps, now vertically arranged, were hidden
behind clamshell doors in the edges of each fender. This car had
placed its foot into the luxury brand world with this model with
the sleek exterior designs and it didn't stop inside the car. The
Riviera featured a luxurious four-place cabin with front bucket
seats and bucket-style seats in the rear. A center console with
floor shifter and storage compartment built into the instrument
panel divided the front. This car came with it all especially for a
car from the 60's, it's still impressive to think of the
engineering and design that went into this car. It has since earned
Milestone status from the Milestone Car Society. Jaguar founder and
designer Sir William Lyons remarked that Mitchell had done ''a very
wonderful job,'' and Sergio Pininfarina declared it ''one of the
most beautiful American cars ever built. Come check it out or give
