![CDATA[
The nameáRiviera, Latin for coastline was deliberately chosen to evoke the allure and affluence of the French Riviera. First entering the Buick line in 1949 as the new, ultra-stylish, two-door pillarless coupÚ. The Riviera was redesigned for the 1966 model year, retaining its x-frame chassis, powertrain, and brakes, but its curvaceous new body was longer, wider, and unsurprisingly heavier. Headlamps remained concealed, but now pivoted behind the grille when not in use, and they were once again horizontally arranged. The Riviera retained the conventional rear wheel drive format.
This second generation Buick is finished in Maroon with white interior and a matching white vinyl roof. These super stylish coupÚs are synonymous of American cars from the period. The impressive 7.0 litreV8 engine offering a delightfully smooth silky ride, with ample power available if required, this is a superb Riviera and one that is as good mechanically as it is cosmetically. The simple yet very effective dash layout is almost art deco like in its appearance. Equipped with power steering, automatic transmission, air conditioning and electric seat adjustment, it is easy to understand why these cars were in such high demand. This example is offered for sale with a UK registration document.]]
