West Coast Classics are proud to present a great daily driving example of this original southern Californiarust free 1964 Buick Riviera coupe with it's original matching #'s and rebuilt 425/340HP 'Wildcat' 'KW' code Nailhead engine and finished in its original and striking 'Arctic White' (Code CC) color paint with it's original 'Red Vinyl' (Code 607) interior with bucket seats and a center console with a console mounted transmission shifter with a super turbine 400 automatic transmission and loaded with factory options including power brakes, air conditioning, tinted glass, tilt wheel, power steering, power windows, power antenna, power seat, Buick 'Sonomatic'radio and still boasting its original spinner hubcaps!
Purchased from the estate of the long time southern California owners who purchased the car from it's original owners with a thick file of original service records which include the original owners manuals and Protecto-plate, original California registrations, receipts for a complete engine rebuild at 78,656 miles, rebuilt power brakes booster, new exhaust system etc, with the floor boards, trunk and all the typical rust-prone areas completely solid and rust-free and the car has no signs of any major accidents of any kind. The car has obviously always been garaged and looks very impressive considering it's originality and age with one decent re-paint in it's original factory 'Arctic White' color paint and with the original 'Red' vinyl interior in very good condition throughout although please note that there may be some further TLC for the fastidious owner in particular non working air conditioning and some cosmetics such as worn weatherstripping etc.
The rebuilt 425/340HP 'Wildcat' engine is strong and powerful, the transmission shifts smoothly through the gears and there are no noticeable oil leaks and the temperature always remains cool! This is a great opportunity to own a great daily driving example of an always rust free 1964 Buick Riviera.
One of the outstanding GM designs of the sixties, reflecting the styling supremo of Bill Mitchell with a masterful blend of curves and razor-edges, dubbed the anti-Thunderbird and respected by an army of industrial designers as an architectural landmark of the U.S industry and which has high repute amongst collectors for both it's beautiful lines and smooth fast performance for a luxury coupe. "One of the most beautiful cars America ever built" as stated by none other than Sergio Pininfarina of Ferrari design fame at it's debut at the Paris auto show in 1963. This landmark design would continue for only two years until 1964 before a hidden headlight change in 1965 but with all these 63-65 model cars boasting 'Milestone Car' status.
In summary, this is one great collectible classic car ready to enjoy today - an original southern California two family owned since new car with no rust and always garaged - a perfect candidate for the Buick or classic American car enthusiast to fully restore or simply drive as it is and a sure-fire investment that's sure to appreciate over the years for any classic American sixties car collector!
