1992 Buick Riviera
1992 Buick Riviera
The Buick Riviera is a personal luxury car produced by Buick from 1963 to 1999. GM's first entry into that prestige niche, the Riviera was highly praised by automotive journalists upon its high-profile debut. While early models stayed close to the original form, eight subsequent generations varied substantially over the Riviera's thirty-year lifespan. In all, 1,127,261 were produced. The name Riviera, Latin for coastline, was chosen to evoke the allure and affluence of the French Riviera. It first entered the Buick line in 1949, as the designation for the new two-door pillarless hardtop, described in advertising as "stunningly smart".
For consignment a 1-owner, all original, low mileage, garaged, and well-kept and pampered Riviera. Read on for more excitement.
It is hard to find fault with any of the straight steel panels, and gaps that make up the shape of this car. All panels are covered with Midnight Blue Metallic which is in showroom condition. A Dark Blue padded landau top with no marks or tears is presented in the back of the roof. All badging and brite work is excellent condition including a full chromed trim line at the belt, that encircles this car. Locking wire wheel covers are wrapped in radials with a classy thin white stripe on all four corners.
Swing open the wide entry doors and you will be met by a beautiful blue combination of leather and vinyl, with smatterings of wood burl trimmings. Doors also house a plethora of power toggles and buttons, such as power windows, power locks, power mirrors, electric trunk actuation, cruise control, and power seat adjustments (6 way for driver). Beautiful leather and stitched vinyl buckets showing slight patina and some use, just add character to this luxury car. These seats flank a blue and burl center console, that houses the automatic shifter, and ashtray. As we make our way up the burl covered dash climate control, and AM/FM stereo radio with seek and scan and 6 speaker concert sound system. A digital display is in front of the leather wrapped steering wheel. The driver can also set the twilight headlight sensor sensitivity to automatically turn on the headlights…now that's living! Bringing up the back of the cabin is one bench seat, but 2 distinct bucket seats with a center armrest provide comfortable seating for the rear passengers as well.
A fuel efficient 3.8 Liter V6 with Tuned Port Injection is attached to an automatic transmission with overdrive.
As expected very clean with minimal surface rust, and very sound structurally. It is amazing to see an almost 30 year old car present so nicely, when driven even the low miles it has on the digital display.
One can debate the definition of classic all day, however the excellent condition, stunning presentation of the car makes it a classic. A quick starter, very smooth runner, and great driver, it will keep you occupied all day with all the switches, knobs and buttons for conveniences it has attached to it. And if that is not enough, play with the multi-function display dash to finish out your day.
