For Sale: 1965 Buick Riviera in St. Louis, Missouri

Vehicle Description

History of the Buick Riviera:
Buick entered the 1963 model year with a new vehicle to compete in the Personal Luxury Car arena, primarily against the Ford Thunderbird, which they would name Riviera. The name Riviera was used in previous years as a premium trim level for the Road Master and Super series models, providing owners more upscale features and options. When it became its own model series in 1963, the new cutting-edge General Motors design was certain to include an abundance of available luxury features as well. This included a standard high torque Nailhead V8 powerplant, as well as power brakes and steering. A host of power accessories were made available by choice to the buyer. Today, these stunning Rivieras represent a desirable GM E-platform design with a front engine/rear-wheel-drive systems when both Cadillac and Oldsmobile were transitioning to front-wheel-drive technology.
