"1974 brought a major change to the Riviera. The trend toward luxury continued, along with the loss of the unique "boattail" rear design. The roof was now a more common "notchback," along with losing the true coupe roof. There was now a center pillar and a fixed rear side glass for the first time in the Riviera's history. Just like the introduction of the controversial "boattail" design that preceded it, the loss of that design brought mixed reviews from the press and the public."
