Description for Buick Riviera 1965

1965 BUICK RIVIERA WITH MIRROR LIKE NEW PAINT. RE-CHROMED BUMPERS & RE-CHROMED AIR CLEANER. #'S MATCHING 401 WITH DUAL QUAD CARBS. GRAND SPORT TRIBUTE. ****NO RESERVE AUCTION. THIS CAR WILL SELL TO THE HIGHEST BIDDER. ***SERIOUS BUYERS ONLY PLEASE. ***PLEASE ASK ALL QUESTIONS & HAVE FUNDS AVAILABLE BEFORE PLACING A BID. THANK YOU***I RESCUED THIS RIVIERA IN 2012 FROM A LONG TIME GARAGE STORAGE IN MICHIGAN. MY INTENTIONS WERE TO RESTORE IT AS A HIGH QUALITY DRIVER. BUT I HAVE SINCE FOUND ANOTHER PROJECT (69 CHARGER RT) THAT WILL REQUIRE MY FULL ATTENTION & $. SO REGRETABLY. I MUST LET THIS ONE GO. WHEN I FOUND IT. THE PAINT WAS BADLY FADED BUT IT ONLY HAD MINIMAL RUST. I HAD IT TRANSPORTED HOME & SENT OUT TO MY BODY/PAINT GUY. PRIOR TO PAINT: THE PAINT WAS BADLY FADED & CRACKING. BUT THE BODY WAS VERY STRAIGHT WITH MINIMAL RUST. SO I HAD THE BODY STRIPPED TO BARE METAL. BOTH LOWER SECTIONS OF THE REAR 1/4'S HAD SOME MINOR RUST. THE RIGHT SIDE HAD A LOWER SECTION OF A NICE USED 1/4 WELDED IN. THE LEFT SIDE ONLY NEEDED A MINOR PIECE WELDED IN. BOTH AREAS CAME OUT NICELY. FLOORS & FRAME ARE SOLID. THE ONLY ISSUE WAS THE DRIVER SIDE FLOOR PAN. A NEW PAN HAS BEEN RIVETED & SEALED IN. BUT IT STILL NEEDS COSMETIC FINISHING. AS THE REST OF THE UNDERCARRIAGE DOES ALSO. THE BUMPERS WERE FADED. SO I HAD THEM RECHROMED. AFTER PAINT: IT WAS WET SANDED & BUFFED TO A MIRROR LIKE FINISH. THE PAINT IS SMOOTH AS GLASS & NEAR SHOW QUALITY. THE BODY IS STRAIGHT AS AN ARROW. I PLANNED TO KEEP THIS CAR. SO I HAD IT DONE RIGHT. MECHANICAL: THE LT CODE #'S MATCHING 401 NAILHEAD RUNS STRONG! NO LEAKS. ***NEW VALVE COVER GASKETS. THERMOSTAT. COOLANT FLUSH. PLUGS. PCV. WIRES. CAP & ROTOR. *** I HAVE NEW POINTS. BUT HAVE NOT INSTALLED THEM (I DON'T HAVE A METER TO SET THEM). ALL FOUR DRUMS HAVE BEEN TURNED. SHOES ARE GOOD. BUT THEY COULD USE A MINOR ADJUSTMENT. ONE REAR ONE SEEMS TO GRAB A LITTLE SOONER THAN THE OTHERS. THE BRAKE PEDAL IS HIGH & SENSATIVE. THE A/C COMPRESSOR WAS REMOVED WHEN I INSTALLED THE V/C GASKETS. I DID NOT REINSTALL IT. BUT IT SPINS FREELY & WILL BE INCLUDED WITH THE SALE ALONG WITH THE ORIGINAL CONDENSER. INTERIOR: VERY GOOD ORIGINAL CONDITION. FRONT SEATS HAVE MINOR SEEMS SPLITING. REAR SEATS ARE NEAR PERFECT. HEADLINER HAS 2 SEEMS SPLITTING. REAR SAIL PANELS NEED RECOVERING. REAR SHELF PANEL & KICK PANELS WERE BAD & HAVE BEEN REMOVED. CARPET & DASH ARE GOOD. DOOR PANELS COULD USE VINYL RECOVERING. BUT THERY ARE VERY PRESENTABLE. ***A NEW HEADLINER. TRUNK CARDBOARD KIT. REAR SHELF PANEL & FRONT KICK PANELS ARE INCLUDED WITH THE SALE. ***ELECTRONICS: BOTH FRONT WINDOWS WORK. REAR WINDOWS DO NOT. SEAT MOTOR ENGAGES & SPINS. BUT SEAT DOES NOT MOVE. I BELIEVE IT MAY JUST NEED A CABLE. ***THE HEADLAMP MOTOR & LINKAGE ARE OUT OF THE CAR. THEY ARE INCLUDED WITH THE SALE. HEADLAMP MOTOR TURNS SLOW. WILL PROBABLY NEED A REBUILD. ***THE CAR WAS SITTING FOR A COUPLE OF MONTHS & WAS NOT WASHED BEFORE THE PHOTOS WERE TAKEN (IT WAS FAR TOO COLD OUTSIDE). THE WHEELS & TIRES WILL CLEAN UP NICELY & ARE VERY GOOD DRIVER QUALITY. I'VE TRIED TO EXPLAIN EVERTHING THOROUGHLY. BUT MAY HAVE LEFT OUT SOMETHING. FEEL FREE TO ASK ANY QUESTIONS YOU HAVE. **SERIOUS BUYERS ONLY PLEASE!!**THIS IS AN AWESOME CAR! ALL OF THE TOUGH & EXPENSIVE STUFF HAS BEEN DONE. A GREAT INVESTMENT! FINISH IT YOURSELF & SAVE. THESE CARS FINISHED SELL FOR OVER $35K WITHOUT THE DUAL QUADS!MORE PHOTOS CAN BE MADE IF NEEDED. ***I HAVE A VIDEO WITH THE CAR RUNNING FOR SERIOUS BUYERS. ******PLEASE BID ONLY AFTER YOU HAVE ASKED ALL YOUR QUESTIONS. PLEASE BID ONLY IF YOU HAVE FUNDS AVAILABLE & WILL COMPLETE THE SALE. ******SERIOUS & REASONABLE BUY IT NOW OFFERS WILL BE CONSIDERED. I'M HAPPY TO ASSIST WITH INSPECTIONS & SHIPPING AT THE BUYERS EXPENSE. ***TO BE CLEAR. I DON NOT BELIEVE THIS IS A GRAN SPORT MODEL. BUT THE DUAL QUADS & GRAN SPORT EMBLEMS WERE ON THE CAR WHEN IT BOUGHT IT. SO I HAVE IT LISTED AS A GS TRIBUTE. THANK YOU FOR VIEWING.
