Say hello to your favorite new bad boy. After all, it's hard to find anything meaner than a 1965 Buick Riviera with a custom look made for pure intimidation. Don't forget that this coupe has a big V8 to back it all up, too!
This one looks like it's out to inhale all the light in the world and bring in the darkness. After all, the super slick black paint, even sicker bright work, and custom flames on the hood and fenders make this Buick look like it caught the express train out of other cars' nightmares. More than just this custom work, the 1965 Riviera was the perfect canvas for this evil masterpiece. Razor-sharp body lines with pointed ends always made these large coupes look aggressive. And this was the only year that they concealed the headlights in the fenders. Add in the custom grille, Porsche-style tips on the side exhaust, lowered stance, and bright Coys wheels with an 18/20 inch front/rear aggressive stagger, and this one looks wicked from every angle.
The full midnight package continues inside. But where the exterior has a mean-streak, the interior retains all the best comforts of the Riviera's individual luxury. The button-top pattern on the leather seats and side panels are a classy design that are presented just as nicely today as in 1965. Everyone gets an individual bucket seat. Yes, there's a center console not only for the front, but the rear passengers get a stylized separation, too. You even have the option for added comfort with provisions for factory air conditioning. Just like the exterior, there's plenty of bright work, and the wood paneling has been replaced with carbon fiber trim to keep the aggressive attitude of the exterior. You get the original dual-spoke steering wheel that gives you a commanding view of brushed stainless round gauge package. The overall driver-oriented cockpit reminds you this is a fantastic classic for cruising.
Buick knew that effortless performance was the key to the Riviera's success, so they made sure that there was plenty of power and torque to move all that sheet metal with ease. The period-correct 401 cubic-inch V8 look terrific filling the engine bay. After all, in a coupe as dark as midnight, the big turquoise block instantly stands out. Plus, the polished valve covers and air topper really give it some nice flair. The overall exceptional presentation of the engine bay points to nice investments in keeping this Buick running smoothly. And speaking of smooth operation, the TH400 three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, power brakes, and Riviera's legendary supple ride make this the easy choice for weekend cruising day or night.
Complete with owner's manual, this is the coupe that looks mean to everyone but feels luxurious from behind the wheel. That makes it the classic that really knows how to make an entrance. So if you're ready to have all eyes on you, call today!
