Vehicle Description

This 1964 Buick Riviera Super Wildcat is the kind of coupe that instantly makes you fall in love with classic American motoring. It's a cool-looking luxury hardtop with all the right period-correct appearance. And under the hood is a huge V8 with dual four-barrel carbs on top. And this full classic package is looking just as the factory made it!

This Riviera lives up to its upper-class European namesake. Crisp lines, outstretched fenders, and a hint of a sporty kick-up in the rear fender made a terrific first impression. It wasn't as chrome-heavy as other cars from the '60s, but that didn't mean it missed out on brightwork. It uses shine in a sophisticated way with pieces like the turn signal grilles, quarter panel horseshoe trim, and wire wheel covers with distinct "R" badging. Plus, the chrome bumpers hug the car's unique form. And for a car named after a coastal resort destination, it's great to have it presented in the factory-correct and appropriately named Surf Green. It was given a respray later in life to ensure there is a nice gloss on this nautical hue.

Inside, the sea of green continues, and so does the original flair. Everyone gets the comfort of bucket seats in this Riviera, even the rear ones! The unique cloth with button-top presentation is a preserved original presentation that really still shows a premium look today. The artful dual-spoke steering wheel, big/bright gauges, and nicely integrated center console remind you remind you that these were built to be luxury cruisers. And that feeling continues on vintage items like the glovebox trunk release, wood-like trim, cruise control, and the factory AM/FM radio with the hallmark B-U-I-C-K memory buttons. Plus, power windows mean you get to show off the cool pillarless hardtop profile without ever leaving the driver's seat.

While this has great originality inside and out, what you're really going to want to show off is under the hood. This is the numbers-matching 425 cubic-inch Super Wildcat V8. The bright air topper, ribbed Buick valve covers, and bright block paint makes this both vintage and attractive. But what people will really marvel at is how this came from the factory with dual four-barrel carburetors (making it one of only 2122!) A special motor like this has been well-maintained, including a newer brake master cylinder, battery, and water pump. It makes for serious power, but this also never loses its easy-driving nature. That's why you also have a three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and power brakes.

This is a special coupe, and so it even comes with a copy of the original purchase receipt. Who knew this much vintage luxury and distinction could be so affordable? Call today!!!
