1969 Buick Riviera GS

With its long, sleek look, concealed headlights and distinct nose, there is no doubt that the 1969 Buick Riviera is a cool looking car.

This Verde Green beauty has covered just 37,000 miles with just two owners since new. It’s a factory GS which is basically a sport suspension option with exterior emblems to highlight that fact.

This view shows the great lines of the Riviera and it also highlights the optional vinyl roof (original to this car costing an additional $128 when new).

As a personal luxury car the Riviera came with power steering and power brakes as standard.

Inside, the luxurious interior of the Riviera was available with bucket or bench seats.

Under the hood is the biggest engine Buick offered, as was standard in the Riviera, the 430 cubic inch (7 liter) V8. With a 4 barrel quadrajet carburetor and connected to a Turbo Hydra-Matic (TH-400) automatic transmission it managed to output 360 horsepower. The chrome air cleaner lid is the only engine difference seen on cars with the GS option.

In addition to the vinyl roof mention above, the original owner of this car also opted for an AM radio ($88) and power windows ($110).

It was a great year for the Riviera and it was selling better than ever with 52,782 of them sold for the 1969 model year at a base price of $4,701. Only 5,272 of that total had the GS option.
