For Sale: 1979 Buick Riviera in Concord, North Carolina

Vehicle Description

This 1979 Buick Riviera Turbo S Type, with a mere 8,858 believed actual miles, exemplifies GM's luxury and performance engineering. The light blue metallic paint accentuates the coupe's sleek lines and distinctive Buick styling. The S Type package adds a performance edge with unique badging and spoked wheels fitted with 215/70R15 Tiger Paw tires featuring thin whitewalls, while the chrome trim shines with minimal flaws.

The blue cloth interior reflects the car's low mileage. Comfortable bucket seats offer power adjustments for the driver and passenger. Wood accent trim elevates the cabin's ambiance. The dash features factory gauges and an AM/FM cassette stereo with 8-track functionality. Luxury features include power windows, locks, tilt steering, and rear defogger. The factory air conditioning, converted to R134a, keeps the cabin cool.

A 3.8L powers this Riviera turbocharged V6 engine coupled with a 3-speed automatic transmission driving the front wheels. This powertrain previews the performance that would evolve into the Grand National and GNX. The engine compartment retains a clean, factory look. The torsion bar front suspension and independent rear with factory air ride enhance handling. Four-wheel power disc brakes provide effective stopping power.
