1957 Buick Riviera
1957 Buick - Special 40 Riviera
"Wow!" is the exact reaction we have heard from anybody that has laid eyes
on this car. It is truly the type that leaves you speechless as you walk
around it trying to take it all in. Yes beauty is in the eye of the
beholder but we have yet to find a single person who doesn't agree this may
be one of the most gorgeous cars they have seen. It has undergone a
complete restoration and is without a doubt one of the nicest out there.
The process took 18 months to complete with no corners cut along the way.
It has remained in Texas its entire life and since being finished has only
been driven 100 miles to insure everything was working properly. The 1957
Buick Special 40 Riviera body is laser straight and looks amazing from
front to rear. From the side these cars were similar to the tri five cars
but with quarter windows and other unique body accents like the side trim
they really take it to the next level. The car is painted in a Red
Metallic 2 stage paint that makes the perfect combination with all that
chrome. You would really have a tough time finding a better color. There
is just something about the look of this car that grabs you. We have seen
50's Buicks in the past so we aren't unfamiliar with these cars but this
one is just something special. The large front bumper and grill have an
excellent finish as does all the other chrome/stainless on the car. In
fact 14K of the invested dollars went strictly towards the chrome/stainless
work. It has all of the correct style emblems throughout and all are
cleanly mounted as is the front fender accents on both sides. All of the
glass is in good condition and the windows have been covered with a nice
tint. The car has a great stance and one of the best choices in the
restoration process had to have been deciding on white wall wrapped Kelsey
Hayes wire wheels because they look perfect on the car.
The drive train of the car as well as the interior and underneath is just
as nice as the top. Under the hood is a 364 c.i. 250hp Nailhead motor that
has been finished out in a nostalgic original style. This isn't a car
where you need a bunch of bolt on chrome to get attention because the
beautiful original appearance has just as nice of a finish. All of the
painted components look like new and everything is very cleanly done. The
engine compartment gets just as much respect as the body of the car does.
A 2 barrel carburetor is in place which has been adjusted to a nice smooth
idle. The car was equipped with factory AC originally and this system is
still in place but has been upgraded with a more modern compressor. Other
nice luxuries include the power steering system which makes it extremely
easy to drive. It has dual Exhaust
routed out of the back which deliver an awesome sound. An automatic
transmission backs up the motor and sends horsepower through the
enclosed drive shaft to the 3:58 gear rear end. A 20 gallon fuel tank is
in place which is plenty to keep this 122in wheel based machine rolling for
a good while.
If all of that doesn't have you convinced that you won't find anything
better then the interior is sure to be the icing on the cake. It is done
in a 2 tone brown leather and was extremely well done. Apart from being
very comfortable it just looks awesome! Little touches like incorporating
the leather into the dash pad and glove box door create a look that you may
have never seen before. On the dash you will find a lot of the original
style components but features like the gauges have been fully restored. A
vintage AM radio is in place but this is strictly for licks. A hidden
AM/FM/Satellite/MP3 stereo was added and hidden to preserve some of the
original look of the dash. This allows you to have the best of both
worlds, the vintage look everyone loves and the modern sounds that only a
new stereo can provide. The steering wheel was also fully restored and is
But wait! Theres more! The trunk is done just as nicely and a custom boot
was made to hide away the spare. Look around at other cars out there and
you will find yourself always thinking back to this one. There aren't a
ton of these out there on the market and those that are come no where close
to this classic!
Don't miss this chance because it won't be around for long!

Buick Family of Radios (1995)
The "1995 Buick Family of Radios" video is from the Know-how Series
(KH-179) and explains the AM/FM radio/cassette tape/CD combo head unit,
including its features, functions and minor troubleshooting tips and
solutions. Also included is a discussion on tone equalization, speaker
response characteristics, and cassette tape head cleaning. (This very
similar radio style was used by Buick for many years following 1995 and
into the early 2000 models.)
1996 Buick Riviera (Supercharged 3.8 V6)
This is an amazing nice car, we bought it in Arizona in 2001, and have had
it ever since with absolutely NO problems. It has some small dings in the
doors from inconsiderate people in parking lots and the chrome wheels are
beginning to flake severely, but looks fantastic for a 13 year old car in

Showing my Riviera and what I've done to it so far. I'm not planning on
getting too crazy with it, probably some chrome 20" 100 spoke wire wheels
and probably replace the interior lights with some green LED's.

Bad-Ass Buick: 1955 Special - /BIG MUSCLE
• Harry Fisher
In stock form, the 1955 Buick Special could best be described as a "nice"
car. It's not drop dead gorgeous like a 1959 Impala, nor does it have the
panache of say a 1956 Chrysler 300. You see the '55 Buick Special was a
working mans car. It had room enough for the whole family, a decent
power-plant thanks to its 264 cubic inch V8, and style that was, well...
above average. Harry Fisher or "Uncle Harry" as most people know him, saw
the old Buick a bit differently though. He knew that with a few little
touches (like a 502 cubic inch big-block, modern suspension, and a new set
of wheels) that this old Buick had the potential to become one of the
baddest hot-rods around.
'66 Buick Back From The Dead! - HOT ROD Unlimited Episode 5
On this episode of HOT ROD Unlimited, we raise a '66 Buick from the dead.
After spending 33 years sitting outside in the desert, the broken down
Buick Special is revived by David Freiburger and Mike Finnegan of HOT ROD
and Rick Pewe of 4-Wheel & Off-Road magazine.
Rick's mother bought the car when it was near new and parked it when the
transmission failed in 1978. In 2011, the guys spent two and a half days
wrenching on the car, with the hopes of driving it home from Phoenix to Los
Angeles. Come along for the ride and see what happens!
HOT ROD Unlimited appears every other Friday on the new Motor Trend
