Personal luxury coupes with V8 power are always in style, so when
you have a 1984 Buick Riviera as nicely presented as this one, you
know it's something special.
You know you like that metallic brown color, and we do, too. It has an interesting depth that brings out copper undertones when the sunlight hits it. Of course, it also doesn't hurt that this coupe has been treated to a professional respray of its factory-correct color. The matching vinyl landau roof sets off this package nicely with the kind of sophistication a classic Riviera deserves. But it's the details that really set this Buick apart from the rest. The headlights still shine like jewels in the bright factory housing; the subtle pinstripe running the full length of the car really highlights the gentle curves in its profile; and the N91 factory wire wheel covers have a timeless elegance.
Those solid doors swing wide for a dramatic reveal of a time capsule interior. The brown velour has a velvet-like touch that we all remember from a premium 1980s machine. It nicely matches with the door panels, carpeting, and dash for an unmistakable well-preserved factory appearance. This is joined with the burled walnut veneer on all of these surfaces to create one of the most handsome interiors ever created in the era. There are fold down armrests in each row, so you can choose to carry up to five family and friends with you, or go for more individual comfort. You get to grab the factory wheel that matches this brown and wood motif, and gaze at the extra wide speedometer. From this command position you have an easy reach to all the features such as the power windows, power locks, tilt wheel, cruise control, factory AM/FM/cassette stereo, and provisions for air conditioning.
Under the hood is the optional 307 cubic inch V8. Just like the rest of this luxury coupe, it looks exceptionally factory-correct and exceptionally preserved. The V8 motor was a valuable piece to give the Riviera the right kind of torque to move it around with authority. The attitude on this one is a comfortable cruiser that could even rival its relatives at Cadillac. That's why it came with grand touring features like the fully independent suspension and a four-speed overdrive automatic transmission. This is the kind of classic that you're not intimidated to take on the long trips thanks to power steering and front disc brakes.
This 1984 Buick Riviera makes a great candidate for the enthusiast that is looking for classic luxury to cruise around town. It runs smoothly and has the old school luxury style that generations have grown to love. Don't miss your opportunity to pick up a bargain classic that will give you many years of enjoyment.
