Classic Car Overview

The Buick Riviera is a personal luxury car that was marketed by Buick from 1963 to 1999, with the exception of the 1994 model year. As General Motors first entry into the personal luxury car market segment, the Riviera was highly praised by automotive journalists upon its high-profile debut. The ground-up design that debuted for 1963 was also Buicks first unique Riviera model, and it pioneered the GM E platform. Unlike its subsequent GM E platform stablemates, the Oldsmobile Toronado and Cadillac Eldorado, the Riviera was initially a standard front engine/rear-wheel drive platform, only switching to front-wheel drive starting for 1979. While the early models stayed close to their original form, eight subsequent generations varied substantially in size and styling. A total of 1,127,261 Rivieras were produced. The Riviera name was resurrected for two concept cars that were displayed at auto shows in 2007 and in 2013. Third generation (1971 1973) The Riviera was radically redesigned for the 1971 model year with flowing and dramatic boat-tail styling. Designed under Bill Mitchells direction, it was penned by Jerry Hirshberg, future head of design for Nissan, mating the two-piece vee-butted:792 fastback rear window, inspired by the 1963 Corvette Sting Ray coupe, to the Rivieras platform. The design was originally intended for the smaller GM A platform or its related GM G platform as shown by subsequently shared final full scale clay model of the A platform based boat tail Riviera. Given the late stage of the 1968-72 A/G platform evolution and accretive cost to add another version to it, GM Management decreed that the next Riviera use the full sized GM B platform body-expanded for 1971 by 3 in (76 mm) in wheelbase and more than 120 lb (54 kg) heavier- which produced controversial looks, making for a sharp departure from those of the Toronado and Eldorado. (Collectible Automobile ran an article about 1971 76 full-sized Buicks in which one sketch design for their 2-door coupes which was rejected resembled the 1971 73 Riviera). For 1973, the Riviera underwent a number of changes. The front bumper was redesigned to be thicker and featured bumper guards as standard in order to meet 1974 impact-bumper standards, the grille was switched back to horizontal slats, and the front lamps were moved from the bumper and were now integrated into the headlights, wrapping around the corners of the car. Sluggish sales of the third generation Riviera led GM to believe that the boattail deck lid was too radical for most customers tastes, so in 1973 it was blunted and made slightly shorter. The taillights, meanwhile, were moved down from the sheet metal and into the bumper, and the rear license plate location was moved from the left side of the bumper to the center.
