Buick Riviera (1969)


Buick Riviera (1969)

Rarely are Buicks used as customized cars, as their luxury street-fighter status has often meant they belong to muscle-car enthusiasts. In the right hands, however, they can be made to look good in any style, and this smoothed-out Riviera is a prime example. Externally the body has gone through a 'shave' which means all the superfluous trim and badging has been removed and the resulting holes filled in. To complement the style, concentric ring smooth hubcaps have been fitted, which blend well with the stock front and rear deep fenders. The suspension is all coil spring and even in stock form they're firm, but this owner has taken more coils out of the springs which has stiffened up the ride still further. The interior is an immaculate mix of white leather tuck 'n' roll and the stock dash equipment, plus some custom-fit stereo equipment.
