This 1982 Buick Riviera is a nicely presented reminder of why we love individual luxury cruisers. With V8 power, a luxury A/C interior, overdrive transmission, and a fully independent suspension, you can cruise in vintage style and comfort for quite an affordable price.
<br><br> This one makes a great first impression with a sleek blue that has a terrific luster. That's thanks to a recent professional respray of its factory-correct color. The great-looking vinyl landau roof is in a coordinating darker blue, and it 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 straight factory sheetmetal shows off the Riviera's wave-like profile; and the N91 factory wire wheel covers have a timeless elegance. This car is so cherished that even the buildsheet has been laminated so you can see all the feature that went into this coupe.
<br><br> Inside the sea of blue continues. This car has averaged under 1,000 miles annually, and so that means little seat time. You really see that in the way the factory seats have a velvety soft touch and a pillow-top design that makes them feel like armchairs. The dash, door panels, and headliner continue this exceptional level of care. Plus, the burled walnut veneer offers a true premium touch. There's seating for up to five, but the driver is always king. That's why you have a fold-down armrest, center console, and your seat power adjusts to the ideal comfort position. This has all the best luxury features you're looking for, including power locks, power mirrors, cruise control, an anti-theft system, and provisions for power windows. Plus, the air conditioning has been converted to R134a, so the climate control knows how to keep you comfortable in this plush interior.
<br><br> The engine bay continues this well preserved and maintained presentation. The correct 307 cubic-inch V8 is believed to be original to the car, and it's a wonderful powerplant to have. It was shared with luxury machines like the Oldsmobile Toronado and the Cadillac Brougham. Topped with a four-barrel carburetor, it has the right kind of torque to move this Riviera around with authority. Buick wanted to make sure this has true grand touring comfort, so it has features like the fully independent suspension and a four-speed automatic transmission w/highway-friendly overdrive. This is the kind of classic that's easy to take on the long trips thanks to power steering, cruise control, and front disc brakes.
<br><br> Not only does the sale come with the factory buildsheet, but also the owner's manual packet. It's a well-preserved and well-presented V8 luxury cruiser offered for a terrific price. Don't miss this deal, call today!
