Make no mistake, this car changed automotive history forever. In 1963 there was nothing remotelylike this on the road. It was a radical and daring departure from typical automobiles. Deeply sculptured front styling features dual ribbed pods patterned after the radiator grille of the LaSalle,which was a GM brand phased out in 1940.Rear styling is restrained and sleek, and carries a strong European influence.The Riviera  was originally commissioned as a Cadillac, and in fact was to be named LaSalle.Buick Division lobbied strongly for the car to bolster weak sales, and successfully swayed management and was awarded this landmark car.
It is interesting to note that this was the car of the stars in the sixties. Frank Sinatra was photographed driving a first generation Riviera, and Leonard Nemoy, Star Trek's Spock owned one during the filing of the TV series. 
Good, stock, quality first -generation Riviera's are getting more and more difficult to find. Even more difficult are those that have solid original bodies as this car does.As well as all fully loaded factory options for that year.A very scarce few remain in this incredible color combination.
