Vehicle Description

1963 Buick Red Riviera

Why This Vehicle is Special

The 1963 Buick Riviera 2 Door Sports Coupe we have here at Skyway Classics is hot red with a beautiful black leather and woodgrain trim interior. This is a highly optioned Buick with the rare 445 Nail Head engine. The car has a 1965 Riviera front-end on a 1963 body that the owner added during the restoration. The car is titled as a 1963.


Our Buick is a rare one with the big 445 Buick engine that was a 401 cubic inch with 325 horsepower @ 4400 rpm and torque of 445 lbs.-ft. @ 2800 rpm. It was a real high performance engine in its day with a compression ratio of 10.25 to 1 and a Rochester 4GC Carburetor that features the chrome valve covers, correct red painted air cleaner, power steering and brakes, air condition, and it all sits in a factory looking highly detailed engine compartment.


Only the 1963 Rivieras had leather seating and ours has it and all the other features and options like, tilt steering wheel, cruise control, an AM/FM radio, wood trim, Soft-Ray glass, black carpet and polished door sill plates.

The styling of the dash and shifter area brings out the luxury feel while cruising down the street in this sharp car. The factory put in a lot of gauges in the great dash with a center console housing the floor shifter and makes for a very sporty luxury car interior.


The Buick has a nice red paint job with very straight body lines and door seams, great chrome and emblems, and rides on correct white wall tires and factory 5-spoke wheels, with exhaust flowing out the correct exhaust system.


This 1963 Buick Riviera 2 Door Sports Coupe we have here at Skyway Classics is a rare and looks as much as a sporty luxury car today as it did back when it was new.
