Probably The Best 1965 Buick Riviera On The Streets

By  |

You know when a car crash your attention and holds it, you start pulling funny faces and saying things like, ‘ohh’ and ‘arrrh’ from its sheer beauty. This 1965 Buick Riviera is no exception.

The ad. says over 1000 hours have gone into the detailing of this car, and it definitely shows both inside and out.

The car’s numbers matching with a Wildcat 445 Nailhead engine, with Thrush Mufflers and not straight tubes. It also has a height adjustable air ride suspension with control unit.
The exterior of the car is a custom turquoise paint that looks incredible, with a custom “Creme De Menthe on the Riviera” paint job on each rear fender.

The interior is just as amazing with custom leather seats and real-wood Ebony Macassar here and there. That wood isn’t cheap so, it hints at the idea of quality here.

It sounds like this car has had a thorough restoration as you can see from the list below and judging on the price, it could be a lot higher for muscle car as cool as this one.

The only real downside I can see here is the high mileage, but like any car, if you are interested, you will have to check it out in person, currently located in Cupertino, California.

If everything is what it says on the tin, this Buick Riviera is a definite car you could be proud of.
