1963 Buick Riviera Coupe
From around 1956 until the mid 1980s, Dodge, Plymouth and even Chrysler squads were the most ubiquitous police cars in North America. In fact, the biggest department, the NYPD, used Plymouth and Dodge squads almost exclusively until the rear-drive M body car was finally axed in 1989.
The no-frills Savoy two-door sedan was home to another engine of considerable repute, the infamous 413 Max Wedge, a Super Stock monster block Chrysler introduced in the spring of 1962.

First the obvious, the custom two tone paint job with base coats and clear coat coupled with the one of a kind air brushed custom body stripe. This included the removal of the mirrors, door handles, antenna, moldings and badging. Coupled with this is the removal of the chrome tail light fixtures and dual head light fixtures which are replaced by flush tail lights and head lights hidden in the grill. There are driving lights in the lower bumper. All of the chrome is in excellent condition. The rebuild includes a custom hood bulge and modified front edge treatment. The grille shape was modified to match the hood and converted to the horizontal billet configuration.
When you open the hood you are sure this wasn’t your father’s idea. The 401 Nailhead Buick engine was rebuilt from the ground up to factory specs and then topped off with the Edelbrock 600 cfm dual quad carburetion system which includes progressive linkage tunable to your personal preference. Supporting the intake system is a high voltage electronic ignition system and a serpentine belt drive system for the accessories. The radiator is a grounded all aluminum unit. All of the accessories and engine system components are either chrome or machined aluminum. A Vintage A/C compressor is included. The battery is new this year.
The tinted windows, including the windshield keep the custom interior cool and hidden. Opening the doors reveals an entirely new custom interior. The seats, dash, rear deck, and door panels are reupholstered in custom gray materials and stitched in heave duty blue thread. The carpet and headliner are in a matching gray. The dash, center console, door panels and steering wheel are painted to match the exterior. The sound system is custom including custom interior and trunk speaker systems. Instrumentation includes new tach, temp, voltage and oil pressure gages.
Lastly the chassis is completely updated with a mandrel bent 3 inch stainless exhaust system including dual FlowMaster stainless mufflers. This is fed by the custom exhaust headers. The brake system is all stainless lines and new actuation cylinders coupled with a dual master cylinder. The suspension system incorporates an adjustable ride height air suspension system with a trunk mounted custom tank and air pump. All of the above rides on 20 inch custom chrome rims 10 inches wide which complement he air ride system and keep the horses under control.
