Originally designed to be a personal luxury car, the Buick Riviera
always represented high-style and comfort for its owners.
Throughout its 36-year history as a model, the Riviera was often
cutting edge in design and forward thinking in many ways. This 1971
Riviera GS, standing for Grand Sport, was the first year of the
third-generation design of the car. The redesign was radical,
adding a boat-tail style to the car's rear with a two-piece rear
window that significantly resembled the single-year design of the
'63 Corvette split-window. This '71 is a resto-mod finished in new
paint and chrome. Powered by a 455ci V8 engine with a balance crank
with performance cam and timing gears, rebuilt by Portland Engine
Rebuilders, as well as a balanced rebuilt Turbo 400 automatic
transmission with a console shifter, rebuilt Quadrajet carburetor,
an Edelbrock performance intake, headers and valve covers from TA
Performance, this car is a fantastic car to cruise in. The
suspension includes all-new body bushings and suspension bushings,
sway bars, Bilstein shocks and lowering springs, and all-new brakes
with custom wheels and tires. Other features include new
floorboards and trunk with sound-deadening, and custom interior
with power bucket seats and full console. There is no other Riviera
like this on the market.
Unless stated otherwise, mileage shown on the odometer is exempt
and unknown if original.
