the car on a lift. This is an excellent opportunity to own an
exceptional Riviera Boattail that is ready to be used and enjoyed

I have personally put about 25 miles on this Buick. During that

This 1971 Riviera is one of the cleanest and best examples on the
market right now. It has excellent history and has had only two
owners since new. We purchased the car from a gentleman in
Cincinnati that owned the car for forty-four year. He purchased it
from the original owner in 1977. He was a careful and thoughtful
owner that always kept the car stored indoors. He was very
meticulous and kept detailed service records that date back to
1982. They show that the engine and transmission were rebuilt less
than 7,000 miles ago.
This Buick is finished in the beautiful and highly desirable color
combination of Bamboo Cream (50) over Sandalwood (684) interior.
This is the factory original color scheme as verified by the codes
on the trim tag, which is pictured in this ad. Please peruse all of
the photos, numbers, video, and information in this ad to get a
true sense of clean, nice, and original this Buick Boattail really
Throughout the entire Buick Riviera Boattail market right now, this
is one of the nicest, most desirable, and best examples available.
There is no way this car could be duplicated or restored with this
level of quality for anything near our asking price. This Riviera
looks great, runs awesome, and floats down the road. This is an
excellent opportunity to own a classic Buick that is ready to be
used and enjoyed at an unbeatable value. One could easily buy this
car now and sell it for more than the purchase price in years to
come as these classic Buick are appreciating fast and the market on
them is red hot right now, especially for the Boattail models.
As a side note, this Buick is not a dealer auction vehicle. We hand
pick each car after careful inspection. Our classics come from
owners who expect their cars to go to someone that will give the
vehicle the same care and attention as they did. We invite and
encourage you to examine the car in person or have the car
inspected. Please take the time to scrutinize each picture. We
photograph each vehicle to the greatest extent so you can feel
confident about your purchase. If you have a question about the
Riviera, just give us a call.
The Bamboo Cream (50) exterior is in excellent condition. As one
can see in the photos, the finish has dazzling gloss, smooth
finish, and deep shine. The chrome and other bright work is in
great condition with a brilliant finish and no pitting. The vinyl
top looks very nice. The original wheels are in great condition
with a nice finish and no curb rash. The whitewall tires have 90%
tread left and are correctly sized 225/75R15. There are a few tiny
blemishes around car that were too faint to show up in pictures and
some light cracking down low, but nothing that is really noticeable
from about five or ten feet away. As one can see in the many photos
of the underside of the car it appears to be totally solid
underneath. This Buick was treated to a Ziebart undercoating and
rust proofing treatment when it was almost new, which has preserved
the underside very well. We have included specific photos of the
lower quarter panels, rockers, frame, spring perches, and other
areas most prone to rust on this generation Buick to show how clean
this car is.

Additionally, the engine and transmission have les thank 7,000

70mph, shifting through all the gears, braking to stoplight, and
going through some curves. Please note that there are no strange
