1971 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 1971 Buick Riviera redesign was a dramatic one. It had many of the same design cues as the 1963 Corvette Stingray but on a 122-inch wheelbase. The concept car which foreshadowed it was the Silver Arrow III, which was even more radical. Under the hood the Riveras 455 cid V-8 developed either 315 or 330 horsepower in Gran Sport form. The horsepower drop was caused by compression reduction to 8.5:1, in preparation for unleaded gas. The interior was luxurious, with leather and vinyl upholstery and a wraparound dash with full instruments, console and floor-shift Turbo-Hydramatic transmission. As might be expected from the radical design, buyers were polarized. Only 33,810 bought the new model, 5,000 less than the 1970 offering. As is often the case, though, fortune favors the bold. The boat tail quickly became a crowd favorite, and good examples still draw crowds. This is coming out of a high end collectors estate, and there are several others to choose from. Extra parts are available.
