Description for Buick Riviera 1972

You are looking at a 1972 Buick Riviera Boattail with a 455 Big Block, "Rivvit". I bought this car from an older gentleman who said it had been in a barn for about 20 years. He said the owner died of kidney cancer and his parents put it the barn then this guy bought it from them. I then bought it from him and started fixing it up. I put a new radiator, had the transmission rebuilt ($1300) New brakes all the way around and new wheel cylinders, new brake lines, new master cylinder, new plugs and wires, new wheels and tires (I still have the original wheels and they will go with the car + the original spare). I had the gas tank relined and painted (the don't make a new one for the 72's). All new blinker bulbs around the car. The interior is in great shape. No cracks in the dash (I bought a dash mat to keep it out of the sun). Car has crank windows, but does have a working AC. The drivers seat has a split in it but other seats are in excellent condition. No rust in the floor boards or trunk, around the edges of the fender wells are starting to rust a little. If I was going to keep it, I'd fix the rust and repaint it. Still original paint and it does have blemishes and it does need repainted unless you like the original patina look (which many do). The drivers side windshield wiper doesn't work. The motor is good, I think an arm slipped off inside or something. Passenger side works fine so if it rains you could always stretch your neck out to look out that side... :)
Everybody should own a Buick Riviera Boattail at one time in their life. Car is a head turner. Everywhere I go in it people come over to talk. If you are wanting a cool car that you don't see everyday this is it. This car instantly makes you popular.
If you want me to ship the car I will work with you on how to get that done paid by the buyer.
