Description for Buick Riviera 1963

963 Buick Riviera with 425 Nailhead Engine!
This 1963 Buick Riviera came to us after having been in possession of the second owner for the past 43 years. Painted Artic white over a two tone white and navy blue interior with blue cloth seat inserts and door cards this Rivera features a clean interior. Equipped with the original 425 C.I. V8 nialhead that has been bored .30 over and rebuilt with TRW forged pistons and a Chet Herbert mild cam; the engine is claimed to produce 450 horsepower and nearly 550 pounds of torque according to the previous owner. Compression is stated to be 140 lbs. in every cylinder with 11.25:1 compression while never getting over 170 degrees in water temperature. The heavy duty transmission was custom built by Phoenix Transmission and is a switch-pitch 3 speed SP-4000 that feeds a factory posi traction differential with 3.23 gears. A full electronic MSD ignition and MSD distributor, coil, and wires allow you to get behind the wheel of this Riviera and drive it anywhere without trouble. The brake booster has been replaced, the fuel lines replaced, and a custom GS close-ratio steering box has also been fitted in the Riviera. Ceramic coated headers, custom ovalized H-pipe and new Magnaflows round out the other additions to this classic Buick.
Wheels shown are Crager rims on new tires. (A little dusty the day the pics were taken.) The ORIGINAL wire rims and good tires come with this car as well. There are are a few extra parts, documentation, and items of interest for collectors with this car. This car starts and runs like a dream. With a minimal investment of time and money, it could be a fully finished show-ready car.
