($125) ** Custom Trim W60-40 Notch Back Front Seat, Custom Seat & Shoulder Belts, Rear Compartment Cigar Lighter and Litter Container. ($200) The car was sold to its original and only owner, a retired GM employee and as previously stated was always garaged and covered. It is completely original throughout with its original floor mats and will be sold with two sets of original keys, its original owners manual, window sticker and new vehicle warranty manual dated May 25th, 1973 from Liberty Buick of Wilmington, Delaware! It has a very rare and desirable GS package model with options of a factory custom power 60/40 seat, custom short vinyl roof and the very necessary factory options of AC, PW, tilt wheel and speed alert. The $200 GS performance package of wide tires, uprated suspension, shorter final drive and tighter Turbo Hyra-Matic transmission was the deal of the decade and as worthwhile now as it was then! Its original Autumn Gold paint was a Riviera only color option in 1973 and the car still boats its original Custom Short Vinyl roof in original white covering and also boasts a virtually flawless all original interior including the dashboard, steering wheel, carpets and seats. It's original spare wheel and jack are in the trunk. Recently purchased from the son of the original owner whose father had cherished the car since new. As previously stated, the car was always garaged and covered and has no history of any accidents or rust with the floor boards, trunk and all the typically rust-prone areas completely solid and always rust free - obviously an always garaged and cherished driver since new. The 455 4 barrel V8 engine with only 53K original miles is extremely strong and powerful and this particular car drives absolutely magnificently - must be driven to be fully appreciated - drives straight as an arrow with no strange road wobbles, shakes or rattles - a truly remarkable daily driver that will give any modern day sports car a run for it's money! The suspension is tight and smooth and the steering is excellent. All the power options are working as they should. The transmission shifts smoothly through the gears, there are no noticeable oil leaks and the temperature always remains cool. This is a rare opportunity to own a great daily driving and never abused example of an always garaged and rust and accident free 1973 Buick Riviera GS with extremely rare factory custom options as listed on the cars original window sticker, obviously a one of one only example! To find another one owner all original example like this with only 53K original miles would be virtually impossible! Simply one of the finest collectible Boat Tails available anywhere and a very rare and highly desirable and collectible unabused example of one of the outstanding GM designs of the early seventies, a sure-fire investment that's sure to appreciate over the years for any classic American muscle car collector or simply any Buick enthusiast looking for a third generation Riviera!

    - In fact many statements made are incorrect, some are really amusing to those that know these cars
    – For example No Boattail has an original factory leather interior – or a factory big block 350 engines, but many seem to believe they did.
