This second-generation Riviera is a beautiful car, similar in design to the attractive, first generation Riviera. Sleek lines, curves in the right places, just the right amount of chrome trim, and a luxurious, modern interior. This car has styling cues and features of European GT cars of the day. Adding credence to this car are a stack of receipts, an Original Window sticker, and Protect-O-Plate.
This sleek car rolled off the assembly line finished in Arctic White. Recently it was treated to a slightly more modern paint treatment - white pearl metallic. Hideaway headlights and thin horizontal tail lights help to keep the look of the car clean and simple. Much of the trim looks to be original and does show some age, but for a car sold new 51 years ago, this Riviera looks great. 17” Rally wheels have been added to give a sportier look to this otherwise handsome car.
The interior is finished in the factory correct Blue Vinyl trim with wood and aluminum accents. The horseshoe shaped gear selector sits in the optional, 'full length' wood trimmed center console, and bright aluminum trim mounted horizontally along the length of the lower dashboard adds some contrast to an otherwise blue interior. Blue bucket seats, center console ignition switch, tilt steering wheel, three point seatbelts were just a few of the interior highlights of this '68 Riviera.
Another similarity of the European GT cars of the time is the high horsepower engine under the hood. Although the 360 horsepower 430ci V8 is mated to a recently rebuilt automatic transmission rather than a notchy manual transmission like a GT car from overseas, this car is a pleasure to drive and has plenty of power underfoot. Air conditioning, power brakes, and power steering are other handy options found on this car.
This sleek, American luxury coupe is turn key and ready for a new garage! Get the look and power of the European GT cars of the late '60's and early '70's in a much cheaper package with this awesome Riviera.
