This is a 1965 Buick Riviera. The car has been rebuilt from head to toe. Its not numbers matching. It is the perfect weekend cruiser or run it to your local car show, it was rebuilt to be driven and enjoyed. The car has been documented through a 4 year rebuild.

Engine rebuilt - not numbers matching - bored .030 over with mild cam and electronic ignition and electric choke. Original carb and manifolds. Aluminum timing chain cover, new water pump. Air Cleaner as seen in pic is actually just modified from original housing, so factory air filter still used.
Body was removed from frame, suspension was completely rebuilt (bushings/ball joints/springs - 2 inch drop) A pic was supplied of the only rust we found during the tear down. All holes were stripped back and filled with tack welding, then rust inhibited and painted.

Axle was torn down, center section inspected by shop and deemed serviceable. Installed back in axle housing with new seals and new axle bearings.

All steel of the body is straight and original. No rust and decent paint. Paint has minor flaws.
Chrome is in good condition, no rust spots. Some stainless around the windows is dented and both bumpers are not straight (believe the car was jacked or towed by bumpers in past)
Interior is all reupholstered in Saddle color vinyl using materials from Clarks Corvair. New headliner. I have sun visors but never redid or installed.
Dash was repaired with Dashtop cap, small chips in plastic of console
Wood is hand cut veneer, not the standard aftermarket kit.

New fuel sending unit installed in gas tank that was removed and inspected.
All lights work, in and out. Power antenna works.

This car requires nothing, put gas in it and drive. Brakes are still stock arrangement, suspension is still stock arrangement except lower springs. Vintage Air was installed to clean up firewall for restomod- hot rod look.
