𝟭𝟵𝟲𝟯 𝗕𝘂𝗶𝗰𝗸 𝗥𝗶𝘃𝗶𝗲𝗿𝗮 From the late '50s to the late '90s, there was a car segment specific to the US, called the Personal Luxury Coupe: a luxurious 2-door that had a massive V8 engine yet prioritised comfort over performance. Ford was killing it in this segment with their Thunderbird, and the Riviera was Buick's response. The name was chosen to reflect the affluence of the French Riviera 🥂💎 and was even launched at the Paris Motor Show in 1962. It's now one of the most sought-after cars of that era. Legendary car designer Bill Mitchell was actually inspired when he went to London 1959, and there he faintly saw an old Rolls-Royce in the fog. He thought “If we just let the air out of the tires . . . just lower it a bit.” (#stancenation🧢) There was his answer. Back in the '60s, many American cars featured a certain design feature called "Coke-bottle-styling", where the bodyline would suddenly curve up after the doors. You can't see it here so swipe to see it on a pristine one. It's said to be one of the most beautiful American cars ever built, and it's easy to see why 🤤 Swipe to see another feature introduced a few years later, with headlights that disappeared into the grille, basically pop-up headlights but almost 20 years earlier! Powering this particular car was a massive 6.6-litre V8 engine called the "Nailhead", making about 325HP, and it was very fast in a straight line, even quicker than some Ferraris and Aston Martins of the time! Buick had a total winner; the people AND the press loved it. They even had to limit production in the first year to 40,000 cars so that there was some exclusivity to owning one. Swipe to see one suuuper sexist 😅 commercial of the 1964 Riviera, as well as some footage shown to the public during its launch. This particular one was owned by a member of the royal family of what used to be known as the princely state of Barwani, in Madhya Pradesh. Now it's all set to be restored in Mumbai by @allanalmeida and his crew @allanrestoration
