Description for Buick Riviera 1983

The 1983 Buick Riviera was the first GM convertible since the "last" convertible, he 1976 Eldorado. It was also one of the most expensive cars you could buy in 1983, ith a sticker price nearly three times that of a comparable Riviera coupe. Today, hey're insanely affordable and this beautifully refinished Riviera convertible represents one of the biggest bangs for the buck we've ever offered.Repainted just a short time ago, his Riv is probably nicer than it was when it was new. They used the same bright white finish but with modern urethane paints, t's shiny and deep, nd thanks to a bare-metal respray, ou know the job was done right. All the Riviera convertibles were built as coupes and shipped to ASC for the conversion, ut you'd never know it by looking, ecause the transition was seamless. The flowing body lines are uninterrupted and there's an argument to be made that the Riv looks even better as a convertible than as a coupe. A neat red pinstripe matches the interior and showcases the flowing fender lines, nd as a car that's always been treated as something special, t fits together beautifully and shows zero signs of neglect. The chrome is bright and shiny, he rubber bumper fillers are in excellent condition, nd all the emblems and lenses remain in almost new condition.Burgundy leather was the only choice on the Riviera convertibles, egardless of what color bodywork you selected. The handsome bucket seats are supportive and comfortable the way your easy chair at home is, nd the leather shows only light comfort marks that seem to enhance the look. There's a bunch of faux wood that looks pretty good and everything was standard equipment on the drop-top Riv, ncluding automatic climate control, ower windows (with four new motors), ocks, irrors, nd seats (with new transmissions), ruise control, nd a tilt steering column. In back, he seat was artfully modified to handle the top mechanism, o it looks neatly finished without appearing to be an afterthought like so many other convertibles of the time. It shows just 69,150 original miles, nd given the durability of the components in these cars, t's only just now getting broken in. The white convertible top is brand new and folds easily with the touch of a button, nd it so neatly mimics the roofline of the hardtop that you need to look at the rear window to spot the convertible (the convertible's window is smaller). There's also a spacious trunk with all its original panels and a space-saver spare.The 307 cubic inch V8 under the hood of this Riviera was optional, ut a vast majority of convertible buyers selected it. It's smooth and competent, he way your luxury car's engine should be, nd it looks to have been properly maintained all its life. New components include the A/C compressor, adiator, oses, nd belts, o it runs beautifully. It's clean under the hood, uggesting an easy life and an owner who cared about taking care of even the things you couldn't see. Underneath, here's a 4-speed automatic transmission that makes this Riv a superb highway car and the shocks are new, o it has that pillowy ride that made American luxury cars famous. It purrs through a correct single exhaust system that was just replaced and fitted with dual outlets under the bumper for a cool look. New 225/75/15 whitewall radials were just fitted and there's a fresh alignment to ensure they last a good, ong time.Documented with its original window sticker, uild sheet, nd manuals, his is a very high-quality car with broad collector appeal for the price of a VW Beetle. Why wouldn't you call right now?
