Description for Buick Riviera 1971

This is a stunning. one-of-a-kind 1971 Buick Riviera Boat-tail that has been turned into the coolest 71 you will ever see. The Boat-tail design was only produced for 3 years. as it was considered too radical for most customers!Over $10. 00 was spent on the Buick 455 V8 that was bored to 4. 35 inches giving 464ci. It has Wiseco forged-dished pistons. approx. 10. 5:1 compression. dual quad intake manifold. ported aluminum heads that flow 320 cfm. extra capacity oil pan & an MSD 6AL ignition box. The engine was built by PAE Enterprises in El Paso. TX. Jim is a renowned Buick engine builder. Most of his engines are built for drag racers around the U. S. A. The motor was broken in and tuned on Jim's dyno. It's got a monstrous 527hp @ 5600 rpm and 609 foot pounds of torque @ 4600 rpm. The radiator is custom built aluminum with two 1350 cfm fans to keep all that power cool. The body was stripped down to bare metal before it was painted. The rear bumper was de-chromed and brought in closer to the body. The headlights are custom-made Xenon HID. The tail lights are custom HID lights and they are sequential. The instrument panel was custom made by Dakota Digital. The front seat units are power seats out of a 2006 GM. The rear seat units were custom fabricated. The seats are top quality Scottish leather. The carpet is custom fitted British-wool broadcloth. The sound system is un-paralleled. From the owner of dfm Car Stereo. Shawn Brodoski: In my 20 years of experience creating custom systems. this 1971 Buick Riviera is one of my favorites. I used only the highest quality materials in creating the visually stunning trunk and audio system for this one of a kind classic. In the cabin. I started with an Alpine CD player and flash-drive installed in the dash. JL Audio speakers were installed in the front. and Polk Audio SR series in the back deck. Moving to the trunk. Polk Audio SR speakers flank two Alpine 4-channel amplifiers. A JL Audio 10 in. woofer was tucked away behind the amps to rock the crowd at car shows. Each piece in the trunk was hand-formed from fiberglass and carefully sculpted to perfection for the tightest fit. I then carefully wrapped each piece in the finest imported leather. Countless hours were spent creating the fiberglass inlays that were painted in red to highlight the amps and the speakers and they give a stunning contrast to the tan leather. I love the end result. and I truly enjoyed being a part of this project. The bagged suspension is incredible!!. It is an Air Ride Technologies Ride Pro 3 (4-way system) with remote control. two 3 galllon air tanks. 2 compressors and the Big Red Airvalve upgrade. The Big Red allows the car to raise and lower much more quickly and you can control each corner independently. High tech electronic control allows the user to program three automatic height presets with the optional Level Pro digital ride-height sensors. The system intelligently utilizes both air pressure and ride height information to accurately adjust the vehicle suspension level. It's got the Level Pro upgrade for Ride Pro E3 system (4 external sensors). double convoluted air springs in front and 2000 pound tapered rear air springs in rear with four billet aluminum adjustable shocks. You will be the center of attention if you take it to a car show. The car was shown at six car shows between 2008 and 2009. It won 2008 Cruise of Champions at Hot August Nights and it was featured in the Meguiars tent at Hot August Nights 2008.
