Vehicle description

Collector Car Gallery is honored to be able to offer this incredible example of a 1953 Buick Special Riviera hardtop coupe. This vehicle comes to us out of a large private collection. The vehicle has been part of the collection for many years and been maintained. The environment is museum-like and climate controlled. In person, the originality and quality of this 1953 Buick exceeds any description or photo. It is truly a time capsule. UNRESTORED with one repaint in the original Verde Green. The repaint shows incredibly well. The two tone white top of this car retains the original paint. All of the stainless and chrome is very presentable. Incredibly, the interior is completely original as well. There is minimal sun fading but the condition is quite remarkable. The underside is where this vehicle ""shines"". Upon viewing the underside, it is obvious this vehicle is an absolute time capsule that has likely never seen a rainy day. The underbody is dry and shows no rot anywhere. It really is quite incredible. The ORIGINAL 263ci Fireball Straight 8 engine and Dynaflow Automatic transmission are running as they should in perfect sync. The original jack and tools accompany this car as well as the original spare wheel. Some interesting original literature and ownership history is also present. This investment grade vehicle is in a class of its own. As the vehicle is viewed in its entirety, the 18,000 original mile claim becomes more and more legitimate. This 1953 Buick Special Riviera Hardtop Coupe can be shown and judged anywhere. Buick enthusiasts will flock to see this car in person. This vehicle would be an incredible addition to a serious collection as well as the perfect cruiser for someone who wants the best. Do not wait. There is nothing else like this vehicle available for sale anywhere in the world. Please call Rich (260)704-0234 for additional photos, video, or information.
