Vehicle Story

This 1955 Buick Special Riviera two-door hardtop is a frame-off restoration with a documented 10,800 miles, according to the seller. It draws from a reportedly numbers-matching 264ci Nailhead V8 and sends it to the road through a 2-speed Dynaflow automatic transmission and the rear wheels. Features include manual windows, power drum brakes, a gas pedal starter, and power steering. This Cameo Beige Buick with a Dover White roof and two-tone blue nylon and Cordaveen interior is available now and comes with books, manuals, service receipts, and a Rhode Island Registration Certificate in the seller's name.

During the restoration of this Riviera, the rust-free body was refinished in the original color of Cameo Beige with a Dover White roof as verified by the data tag. Features include the original chrome and stainless trim, the factory floors and body panels, dual headlights, chrome front and rear bumpers, a driver-side mirror, dual taillights with integrated reverse lights, and the factory green-tinted glass.

A set of black steel wheels with full Buick hub caps are wrapped in Coker Classic whitewall tires.

The reportedly factory-original interior is furnished with two-tone blue nylon and Cordaveen bench seats and matching door panels. Features include a new blue headliner and carpeting, manual windows, power brakes, power steering, a tissue dispenser, and a column-mounted automatic shifter. Factory-installed upholstery assembly tags can be seen in the additional photos in the carousel to the right.

A 120-mph speedometer and gauges for the fuel level, coolant temperature, amps, and oil pressure are located in a chrome panel ahead of the driver. The odometer shows 10,838 miles, which the seller states are documented.

Power is provided by a reportedly numbers-matching 264ci Buick Nailhead V8 backed by a Dynaflow 2-speed automatic transmission. Features include metallic light blue engine paint, power steering, and an oil-bath air filter. A vacuum wiper assembly, radiator, heater blower, windshield washer, and tar-top battery can be seen under the hood.

This Buick Special came from the factory with an independent front suspension and a solid rear axle on a perimeter frame. Stopping power is provided by 4-wheel power drum brakes. During the restoration process, all suspension components, frame rails, and the body floor were cleaned and refinished in matte black.

Books, manuals, and service receipts are included with the sale of the vehicle.

AUTOHUNTER ADMIN UPDATE 5/23/22 8:47 AM: Restoration photos have been added to the end of the carousel.
