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.

Classic Car Overview

This 1973 Buick Riviera is one of the most daring designs put to sheetmetal. So when it retains its big V8 and its premium features, and also offers a custom appearance, it creates one of the best all-round classics... and its available right now for a terrific price. This car knows how to make an entrance. The factory-correct burgundy paint was given a quality respray later in life. So it retains a nice gloss that loves to let the sunshine highlight the cars style. And theres a lot to check out on the 3rd-gen Riviera. The pointed front end is even more pronounced on this example because theres special split front bumper and extended grille to really show off this cars style. Theres a design line that starts here and flows outward on the long hood until it melts with the door line. The rear fenders have of one the sportiest kick-ups ever given to a car. And it all flows toward the back where you have Corvette Sting Ray glass. And we all love how the edges of the rear taper inward to draw even more attention the special boat tail rear. This was the final year for such a bold design, and so its great to have one that looks this special. And as a true premium Buick, you even have the right touches of classic elegance, like the vinyl roof and Cragar wire wheels. The deep red presentation continues inside, and so its very cool to have the survivor-level Oxblood interior. The button-top seats have a great period-correct look, and theres plenty of wood-like trim on the doors and dash. So it truly feels like a classic American. Another great trait of a vintage Buick is plenty of room for family and friends. But all you need to do is fold down the front armrest to remind you this is a personal luxury cruiser. Youll slip behind the three-spoke steering wheel, and that gives you a commanding view of all the features that surround you. Its a driver-oriented setup that includes power windows, power locks, and cruise control. You even have factory air conditioning and the Sonomatic AM radio there for display. You can service these two items to have them function again, but for now, they really complete the time capsule feeling inside. Under the hood is the bold red block of the massive 455 cubic-inch V8. Buick didnt make them any bigger, and so these have a reputation for serious power and torque. This is an era-correct block and many of the factory correct pieces are still in place. The motor inhales deeply from a Quadrajet four-barrel carburetor, and it exhales with a sweet sound out of the dual exhaust. Youll really enjoy taking this Riviera out on the town, because the TH400 three-speed automatic transmission is known for being both stout and smooth. Plus, theres power steering, power brakes, front discs, and deep tread on good cruising tires. Complete with owners manual, this is a classic coupe with a big V8 and a striking design. Its a package that youd expect to pay a ton more to get, so you know this deal will be going fast. Call today!!!
