The Buick Century named so for being the companys first model to reach 100mph, it was regularly advertised as the bankers hotrod in the mid-50s and rightly so with a 322ci V8 producing 236hp. This particular Buick is a Century Riviera which was a higher trim level that sported power steering, power brakes, dynaflow automatic transmission, E-Z-Eye glass, back up lights, parking brake warning light,
windshield washer, and a glare proof rearview mirror. It also came equipped with the Sonomatic radio, a Weather Warden heater/defroster, and whitewall tires. It was built in Southgate, CA and spent its entire life in the Van Nuys/Santa Monica area until it made its way east to Ohio a couple of years ago. The consignor is a Buick Club of America member and this numbers matching beauty is believed to be original miles with 54,499 on the clock. Even though Buick made some 80,000 Centurys, it would be mighty challenging to find another Century Riviera Coupe in this extraordinary condition. To go along with its breathtaking condition, it is also famous for being featured on the Price Is Right in 2012 and on the cover of Buick Bugle magazine in February 2013 in which a 3 page article was written on it. It also has won numerous best of show honors. Recent maintenance and repairs include: front wheel bearings, rebuilt generator, under hood insulation, switch to electric wiper motor, refurbished gauge cluster, clock, and speedometer, refurbished back seat rest, and it very recently underwent a meticulous detail to the paint, chrome, interior, and engine bay. Finding any car of this vintage in this state of preservation is almost unheard of and with the 50s classic market remaining steadily strong, this 55 is truly a rewarding investment. Call today!
