Buick's Riviera was always a car of distinction. As Buick's flagship model, it exemplified a unique combination of styling, luxury, and sportiness that appealed to the well-heeled. And top in exclusivity at almost twice the cost of a coupe--and exceeding the cost of many Cadillacs--was the gorgeous Riviera convertible. Introduced in 1982, it was the first convertible GM produced since the 1976 Cadillac Eldorado. Just 3,898 were produced during its four-year production run, with 1,750 attributable to the 1983 model year--a rare car indeed.
This gorgeous 1983 Buick Riviera Convertible is finished in White and has a beautiful luster. Its finish is further enhanced by an abundance of chrome and brightwork that is in excellent condition. Its complementing Red pinstripes and custom wire wheel covers add additional notes of distinction.
The interior is similarly refined, featuring luxurious Red leather seating areas and rich wood appliques. The seating areas, carpeting, dashboard, and door panels are in very good condition. Its optional Delco-GM cassette tape and ETR AM-FM stereo radio will add to your driving pleasure.

Owned by the most recent owner for the last six years, this well-maintained car benefits from a newly rebuilt transmission, new CV boots, and new ABS plastic front and rear fender fillers.
