245 Buick Riviera in turquoise with cast wheels

40 GBP

These cars are wonderfully photogenic, apart from brown marks on the chrome that some develop! Produced in three main colours - dark blue, light blue and gold - and this scarce turquoise with the cool trans-o-lite headlights and rear lights and nice spoked wheels or, in this case, cast louvred wheels.

I have seen a gold version with these so presume they were put on late versions of this long-running car. They’re not at all common, though, and it took a while to find this. It has a strange mark on the inside of the windscreen but otherwise is excellent and totally original.
