Absolutely beautiful. This generation of Riviera is to die for, to say the least. Such a lovely shape.... On my short list of dream cars... and I don't understand why a car so universally loved for its beauty and its driving characteristics, has never been super valuable... does leave a few wonderful cars available to us poor collectors! GLWTA!!!

@Rickster17 – Also….. is there anything that does not work properly on this car including but not limited to heat and A/C, gages, etc. Is the engine and transmission original equipment? ...

Hello, thanks for your interest. I emailed the seller over your questions to get their direct perspective concerning your curiosity! The owner stated the following - The ac has been converted to 134r but does need to be flushed and filled. The ac controls are stiff but do actuate the compressor etc. All the gauges are in working order. The engine and transmission are believed to be original to the vehicle, but you can see some evidence of a refresh as there are some newer gaskets throughout. This was prior to my purchase. The car has not been in an accident best of my knowledge but impossible to tell as it has passed hands a few times. Title is clean and clear of any brands. Repaired or fixed – nothing to my knowledge aside from the ac flush is needed currently. If I keep it, I would replace the original heat choke with an electric choke to make start ups more convenient. I purchased the car and had all mechanical systems gone through. Fuel system, brakes, carb, cooling system, electrical system using all OG or NOS parts. The car was driven on average once a week (more through the summer) and stored for the winter. Then again driven once a week as of about Feb this year.

Is there anything at all that needs to be repaired or fixed on this car? Has the car ever been involved in an accident? Has the current owner been driving the car and how often? Thank you in advance for the answers to these questions?

@rkneen – Thanks. One more question please. Do you know if it has been repainted or if there was a different original color? ...

Great question! The current owner wasn't sure but I looked over the data plate and it reflects this car was Artic White from the factory. Assuming the online data plate reference is correct. Also I personally think the car has been repainted at some point in its life. Original paint from 1963 probably wouldn't still look as glossy or refreshed as it currently does. The engine bay and undercarriage appear in original condition. The current owner obtained and enjoyed this vehicle in its current condition, with the exception of replacing the tires. Looking forward to your bid! Thank you.

@rkneen – Do you know where this car came from and how many owners it has had? ...

Hello! Thank you for your interest. The current owner obtained this Buick locally in Illinois. Unfortunately we wouldn't know the exact number of owners since 1963, history reports were not invented or referenceable for model years prior to 1981. Happy bidding!
