The third generation of Buick Riviera bought about stunning boattail styling that was largely influenced by fastback models of years prior, along with similarities to the Corvette Split window produced in 1963. This model was only produced from 1971-1973 making them rather difficult to find today with all the right appeal, condition, and options!

This February 1972 built example sold new from O.C. Shreffler & Son based in Manteno, IL on October 31st, 1972. It comes with some early mileage documentation supporting the mileage throughout the late -1980’s reading 55,336 by 1989. It then fell into the hands of Buick enthusiasts, Mac & Sue Hubert who would proudly show it professionally with just repaint to the exterior at any and all local car shows and Buick events all through the 1990’s! As a multiple award winner, many trophies will be included for the next owner, along with a hand-painted presentation board! Awards include 1995 Buick Nationals- Heartland Region with a Class “O” 1963-1981 Silver Award scoring 380/400 points.

It traded hands again to a longtime St. Louis collector and friend of the St. Louis Car Museum. With too many cars and custom cars to finish, he felt this car was not getting the attention it deserved. We acquired it and gave it a thorough service to include new distributor, cap, rotor, points, condenser, plug wires, spark plugs, vacuum advance, new exhaust mufflers, new fuel pump, rebuilt alternator, and new shocks! To say it runs well is a vast understatement! As a true road-going car of the early 1970’s, it leaves little to the imagination by way of sincere comfort and driver feedback! It really grants the driver effortless steering control along with unbelievable torque, power, and interior comfort. Included for the next owner will be the original owner’s manual, maintenance booklet, consumer insert, copy of window sticker, and factory delivery worksheet. Please feel free to call with any questions, to schedule a viewing appointment, or make an offer! Thanks for looking!
