Classic Car Facts

Buick’s Riviera was always a car of distinction.  As Buick’s flagship model, it exemplified a unique combination of styling, luxury, and sportiness that appealed to the well-heeled.  And top in exclusivity at almost twice the cost of a coupe—and exceeding the cost of many Cadillacs—was the gorgeous Riviera convertible.  Introduced in 1982, it was the first convertible GM produced since the 1976 Cadillac Eldorado.  Just 1,248 were made.

This stunning 1982 Buick Riviera Convertible is finished in White and has a beautiful luster.  Its finish is further enhanced by an abundance of chrome and brightwork that is in excellent condition.  Its complementing Claret pinstripes and chrome wheels add additional notes of distinction.

The interior is similarly refined, featuring luxurious Claret leather seating areas and rich wood appliqués.  The seating areas, carpeting, dashboard, and door panels are in excellent condition. Its full-feature AM-FM stereo radio with cassette tape player will add to your driving pleasure.

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

  • Power windows
  • Power door locks
  • Power driver’s & passenger’s seat
  • Power driver’s & passenger’s recliner
  • Power antenna
  • Air conditioning
  • Full-feature AM-FM stereo radio with cassette tape player
  • Cruise control
  • Tilt steering column

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

Powered by a 4-barrel carbureted 307 CID V-8 and a four-speed automatic transmission, this powertrain is considered to be one of the most reliable of its time.  Having 124,000 miles, this meticulously maintained car runs and drives as well as it looks.

Minor imperfections in the finish and chrome do not detract from the overall appearance of this car.  In addition, the car could benefit from new rear trunk lift supports.
