1969 Buick Riviera
Car for sale by Carroll St Auto & Collectibles in Manchester, New Hampshire 03102
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
With its incredibly solid west coast body and underside, this 69 Riv was the perfect blank canvas for customization. Using the two complementing colors of black and maroon, accented with tasteful pinstriping and silver leaf work, Brodie created a ravishing Riviera that neatly splits the difference between subtle and wild. A set of "one-off" custom 20-inch wheels wrapped in low-profile Hancook performance tires provides some added attitude.
Moving this rolling sculpture along effortlessly is the original and plenty potent 430 cubic-inch V8 with its 360 hp and 475 lb-ft of torque ratings. The engine compartment presents well with its factory valve covers and air cleaner accented with chrome. Added upgrades include a lowered suspension, the aforementioned wheels, four-wheel disc brakes and a dual exhaust system with rectangular chrome outlets.
Inside, the original interior further indicates the well-kept, low-mileage life this Riviera has led. Virtually all the option boxes were checked when this car was ordered, as it has A/C, power windows, locks and seat as well as a tilt wheel, speed minder and an AM/FM stereo with power antenna. Everything works, even the power antenna. The big Buick glides down the road smoothly and quietly, apart from the satisfying exhaust growl that comes when you step into the 430s formidable reserves.
If youre looking for something that can handle the dual roles of casual car shows and long road trips in style, this unique Riviera stands ready.
