Description for Buick Riviera 1972

This 1972 Buick Riviera is one of the most daring designs put to sheetmetal. So when there have been terrific investments all over this big V8 luxury cruiser, it creates one of the best all-round classics... and it's available right now for a terrific price. This car knows how to make an entrance. The bold Lorie Blue has a deep and dark intimidating look. But it also has a clearcoat shine to give it true distinction as it... highlights this coupe's straight sheetmetal. And there's a lot to check out on these 3rd gen Rivieras. The pointed front end has a deep crease that flows outward on the long hood until it melts with the door line. The rear fenders have of one the sportiest kick-ups ever given to a car. And it all flows toward the back where you have Corvette Sting Ray glass and a boat tail rear that tapers inward. Oh yes, this was one of the few times GM's dream cars made it into the public's hands. And the distinct beauty of the Riviera is highlighted further by plenty of shine from the wraparound chrome bumpers, full trim, and the upgraded 15-inch Eagle Alloy wheels. This is Buick's personal luxury machine, and it really shows on the interior. After all, you might have seating for up to six, but the driver has a large fold-down armrest and a seat that individually power adjusts to the ideal position. It's finished in a very tasteful gray, and there has been a recent investment here. So you'll love the way everything feels, including the suede-like headliner. The same goes for the grip of the Grant steering wheel. And because this is a driver's machine, the full amenities surround you in the sporty machine-turned paneling. There are great factory features like power windows and power locks. Plus, you have provisions for nice upgrades like R134a air conditioning and an AM/FM/CD/XM/DVD receiver mounted under the dash that even has Bluetooth. Under the hood is the bold red block of the massive 455 cubic-inch V8. While this motor is era-correct, they have made solid investments in performance and maintenance, including a Comp Cams camshaft, Davis Unified Ignition, and rebuilt the Quadrajet four-barrel carburetor. It makes a terrific rumble out of the newer dual exhaust. And because the stout TH400 three-speed automatic transmission has been given a 2500 RPM stall kit, you get to utilize this enhanced power even better. And because they have made all the right investments in the supporting components - from the belts to a new radiator - this one fires up easily and runs smoothly. And smooth is exactly how to think of this classic with power steering, front disc brakes, and Buick's legendary ride quality, this is an all-around great cruiser. Complete with owner's manual and build receipts, this is one of the best-looking classics around that has also been invested in to enhance all its best features. It's a package that you'd expect to pay a ton more to get, so you know this deal will be going fast. Call today!!!
