Classic Car Facts

“Riviera can be anything you want it to be … and therein lies its power to please for years to come.”

These were the words with which Buick lured buyers to its showrooms in 1970 to experience firsthand its elegant Riviera.  Always a car of distinction, as Buick’s flagship model, the Riviera exemplified a unique combination of styling, luxury, and sportiness that appealed to the well-heeled.

This absolutely gorgeous 1970 Buick Riviera is finished in Titian Red Metallic and features a beautifully contrasting White vinyl roof and interior.  More recently refinished in its original color, its finish has a beautiful luster that is further accentuated by an abundance of chrome and brightwork that is in very good condition.  Adding further distinction to its appearance are its optional 5-spoke chrome-plated wheels and whitewall tires.

The original interior is similarly refined and is luxuriously appointed.  You’ll appreciate the look of its Pearl White expanded-vinyl bucket seats and the convenience of its optional center console.  Tasteful use chrome and wood appliques strike just the right balance of luxury and sportiness.  The seating areas, carpeting, dashboard, door panels, and headliner are in excellent original condition, and exhibit only the most minimal wear.

You will also appreciate this car’s long list of standard and optional comfort and convenience items, including the following:

  • Power windows
  • 4-way power seat
  • Tilt steering wheel
  • Speed alert
  • Automatic Climate Control
  • AM radio with glove box mounted Pioneer AM/FM/CD stereo with remote

All power options work as they should, with the exception of the air conditioning.

Powered by a 4-barrel carbureted 455 CID V-8 and a TH-400 three-speed automatic transmission, this car generates an impressive 370 horsepower and 510 lb-ft of torque.  Other mechanical features include power steering, power brakes, and dual exhaust system.  Having just 48,500 original miles, and benefiting from a more recent rebuild, this car runs and drives as well as it looks.

Always well maintained, this car has received the following more recent updates:

  • New bushings
  • New shocks
  • New water pump
  • New heater core
  • New hoses
  • New electronic ignition & coil

Given the care this car has received, this 2-owner California car will likely delight for many more year to come.

One item of note is that minor imperfections in the finish and exterior chrome do not detract from the overall appearance of this car.

If a well-equipped second generation Riviera in a stunning color combination is what you desire, this is the car for you!
