With its long, sleek look, concealed headlights and distinct nose, there is no doubt that the 1969 Buick Riviera is a cool looking car.
Eagle-eyed amongst you may have noticed that this Signal Red Riviera is wearing a 1968 Front Grill and Rear Bumper. This is actually because it is a very early 1969 and actually came from the factory that way!
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.
The Riviera enjoys woodgrained dash and door panel accents.
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.
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.
