1963 Buick Riviera
Car for sale by Auto Market King in W Pittson, Pennsylvania 18643
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.
Classic Car Overview
The new Riviera rode on its own 117-inch wheelbase chassis and the standard engine was a 325 bhp, 401 cid V-8. All Rivieras had the 2-speed Turbine Drive automatic transmission, power steering and power brakes, while air conditioning was a $350 option. A tilt steering column was fitted, along with cruise control. The body was remarkable, a combination of curves and planes with very little brightwork. Side widows were frameless and the doors built with a separate skin, so the mechanism could be precisely adjusted. Doors were so long they had two interior handles, one for the rear seat passengers. The interior was luxurious with vinyl, cloth and vinyl or optional leather bucket seats in front, mirrored in the rear with a depressed center section. Two separate pods of gauges came from the Electra, but the dash swept down to a center console where the gearshift, headlight and wiper switches were located along with front and rear ashtrays, lighters and courtesy lights.This is coming out of a high end collectors estate, and there are several others to choose from. Extra parts are available.
