Description for Buick Riviera 1968

The 1968 Buick Riviera GS was a true star at General Motors. This was the only personal luxury E-body cruiser with rear-wheel drive, and the new big block V8 was making a name for big power. So it's great to find a number-matching coupe with a loaded A/C interior for such a value price. 1968 was a was a great design that kept familiar cues from the iconic '65 Riviera, including hidden headlights and a sporty rear fender kick-up in the design. But now this second-generation coupe had a larger and more unique presence. The lines seemed to stress both performance and elegance all at one. The well-fitting panels on this example show off the razor's edge creases in the sheetmetal. And the chrome bumpers fit so well into the overall design that these were some of the best style lines to ever hit the road. Even the factory-correct Midnight Teal paint with black vinyl roof has a premium coordinated feeling with a bit of sporty flair. And Buick's iconic Rallye wheels complete the true Gran Sport feeling. Inside the sea of blue continues. You get a very survivor-style kind of presentation with just the right subtle upgrades. The Riviera is all about being a personal luxury machine. So while there's plenty of room for the passengers to enjoy, the driver will always be king. You get a plush bucket seat that power adjusts to your ideal comfort position, and there's an artful center console in-between. You'll slip behind the thin three-spoke steering wheel, and that gives you a commanding view of all the features that surround you. This includes power windows, power locks, and cold factory air conditioning. In fact, the only piece that's not built into this driver-oriented setup is the factory radio. But really, your music is coming for a nicely mounted AM/FM/CD stereo with Bluetooth - the ideal way to enjoy modern tunes in this vintage ride. Buick's 430 cubic-inch V8 was a recent debut, and became legendary for it massive torque production. So it's great to have an early example in this numbers-matching car. The motor inhales deeply from a four-barrel carburetor, and it exhales with a sweet sound out of the dual exhaust. So this one has the power and sound you expect from a classic cruising coupe like this. In fact, you'll really enjoy taking this Riviera out on the town, because the three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, front disc brakes, and modern Michelin radial tires contribute to the overall smooth feeling this one has out on the road. This is a big style and big power, and the best part is it's budget-priced. So you don't have to live on the Riviera to own this Riviera. Call today!!!
