1956 Buick Special Riviera
In today’s landscape, a 50s Buick Riviera denotes the glamour and potential of the 50s. A time of looking to the future.
We may never see again a car that looks as glamorous as the 50s American vehicles.
This example is a great price and in great condition.
Both young and old should be keeping an eye on this listing as it’s not just a head turner but potentially a vehicle that could last you a lifetime.
Car is pretty clean and interior is decent (just a few little stains on headliners, front carpet is dirty and rubber cover is bad as well, needs new cardboard sides where your feets are on both sides) but the seats are in real good condition and will need some elbow grease to make them shine again, the door panels are in good condition as well and need some cleaning. Front floors are rusty and will need to be changed ($65 for each floor pan), rest of the car is rust free, rockers are great, trunk is good, rear floor looks good.
-Comes with uninstalled sun visor and spare tire (both in trunk).
-All the windows rolls up and down and the car has all it’s chrome. It is missing front driver side turn signal glass, the driver side window has a crack and the windshield has 2 small rock chips. The blinkers work as well as the lights, horn and wipers. It looks like even all the gauges are working but not 100% sure.
-Needs new brakes all around (emergency brakes works)
-Needs new exhaust as well as manifold gasket.
-Engine sounds good, will needs a tune-up for sure but starts and drives.
-Transmission is real sticky, R works just fine, L as well but D for some reason is not engaging (haven’t got time to look at it yet, might just need some fresh fluid).
-Tires are old but holding air.
-The odometer is showing ~15k miles but pretty sure it rolled over.
-Paint is old, has a few scratches but body is really straight, no dents. Not 100% sure if car was repainted sometimes in it’s life.
-Bumpers are dent free but will need to be rechromed to be perfect as it shows some age.
