STK 3042 1981 Buick Riviera

One of the most elegant Buicks ever produced by any GM division was the 1963 Riviera Sport Coupe. This low mileage 1981 Riviera Coupe (Gen 6) proudly carries on that classic Riviera namesake. An original survivor, our 3-owner Buick is in outstanding condition. The owner believes that the odometer reading of just under 33,000 miles is actual. The original Misty Grey exterior has a fine luster and is complimented with a grey landau vinyl top. Factory steel wheels with distinctive optional wire-wheel covers mount Uniroyal w/w radials and complete the exterior package. Luxurious original seating is upholstered in grey suede and shows very little wear. Convenience features include cold A/C, AM/FM sound system, power driver seat, burlwood dash accents, cruise control, tilt wheel, power trunk and power tinted windows. Horsepower is furnished by a 307ci Oldsmobile-sourced longitudinal V8 engine that produces 140hp. Torque is delivered through a three-speed overdrive automatic gearbox to a front-wheel drive differential. The chassis is equipped with power steering, power disc/drum brakes, front/rear stabilizer bars, new shocks and new exhaust. This stylish Buick Riviera survivor will sell quickly. ALL VEHICLES SOLD “AS IS”.
