EXTREMEMELY RARE 1985 RIVIERA CONVERTIBLE
ONLY 400 PRODUCED IN 1985
THIS IS A STUNNING AMERICAN CLASSIC
THIS CAR WAS THE LAST OF IT'S KIND,
RECIEPTS AND DOCUMENTS!
1985 was the last year for the Old Gal.
She was getting a little long in the tooth as the
body style had been around now for 7 years.
It was by far the most beautiful of all later year Rivieras
to come out of Detroit as the 1986 was anything but.
1985 was mainly carry over, not much changed.
This last year also saw a decrease in production,
with only 400 Convertibles being built.
Prices increased to $27,835.00 base with freight,
a $1503.00 increase.
The standard engine now, for the first time, was the 5.0 V8,
as the 4.1 V6 was dropped from the Riviera line.
Still available was the 3.8 Liter Sequential-port Fuel Injected Turbocharged V-6 engine option,
while lower priced at $735.00,
it still sold poorly and only 49 Riviera Convertibles received this engine.
If you were to order a 1985 Buick Riviera Convertible loaded
with all the options including the 3.8 Liter Sequential-port Fuel Injected Turbocharged V-6 engine,
it would set you back a whopping $31,247!
Not little money back in 1985,
heck it isnt little money today.
One thing all these Riviera Convertibles had in common was this,
they were only available in 2 colors,
White or Red Firemist,
all came with a white vinyl top,
'84 and '85 being the only years they were lined
and all had the Maple (name used only in early 1982)
or Claret Leather Interior.
These two names were mostly the same color,
very dark red, but the latter two years,
1984 and 1985 were a bit darker as GM changed
its vendor that supplied the leather.
Location Long Island, New York USA
