The Riviera has been Buick's personal luxury car since 1963 and has consistently been a style leader for Buick. The sixth generation Riviera(79-85) is still one of the best examples of American personal luxury ever built. The Riviera shared it's chassis with the Oldsmobile Toronado and Cadillac's Eldorado, while managing to look statelier then either of them. In fact, the first year of production for this body(1979) won Riviera the Motor Trend car of the Year Award. 1985 would be the last year of this beautiful body style which earmarks it as the most desirable from a collector's standpoint.
This particular example was purchased new at Rorick Buick in Carlsbad, CA and has been a southern California car it's entire life. It benefits from an outstanding color scheme of cotillion white with dark burgundy leather interior, and is loaded with rare options like drivers memory seat, twilight sentenal lighting, concert sound system with equalizer and electronic touch climate control. Very few of the Rivieras have the leather interior which is a very big plus for this particular Riviera. This Riviera is a sight to behold and only has 43k miles.
