Description

Lot #12.1 - Here is the classic American grand tourer, made for chewing up miles of highway in style and luxury. This completely restored 1966 Buick Riviera is a quintessential example of 60s high-class living with a flair, sophistication, and understated elegance unique to a Buick. Interestingly, in 1966 more Rivieras were sold (45,348) than in any previous model year. Powered by a 425 cubic-inch "nailhead" V8 with 340hp and 465 lb-ft of torque, this show winning Riviera is possibly one of the finest examples one will find. This incredible automobile was restored to lofty standards in 2003 and has been driven sparingly since completion. Everything from the engine bay to the interior, voluminous trunk, and undercarriage is finished beyond reproach. It is beautifully displayed in Silver Mist and contrasted by a Black interior - an appropriate combination that is a fitting complement to the graceful design. The artful body is an illustration for proper panel fit and exquisite paint finish. Looking inside one will notice the hand tailored upholstery finished in the highest quality leather, wood trim, and full factory instrumentation. Other features not to be missed include a tilt steering column, power windows, power steering, a power adjust bench seat (with fold-down armrest), and rear window defogger - even an optional chrome tissue dispenser resides neatly beneath the dash. Also included are power brakes, original T-3 headlamps that neatly fold away when not in use, and proper chrome 5-spoke wheels which complete the Buick's characteristic appearance. Do not miss what is arguably one of the most outstanding Rivieras to be found.
