This is a very rare find, a highly optioned RHD GS Coupe (conversion done by Bill Buckle Autos, Brookvale 1970) I am told on good authority that they were one of the best conversions in Australia.

Factory disc brake front end, chrome rallye wheels, strato bucket seats with console floor shift. Total 1970 production of 37,336 Rivs of which only 3,505 were GS’s

According to my research, the 70 Riviera GS came with Heavy duty suspension, (includes different shocks, springs, heavy duty track bar) 3.42 Positraction Rear and Chrome air cleaner cover.

This year model has the most powerful 455 Buick engine made, before emission regulations were introduced.

The 95 year old gentleman has been the proud owner of this Buick since 1971 but hardly driven in the last 20 years. Always registered and Insured and currently registered until June with the special NSW plates.

It has only 64,600 miles on the clock and apart from some minor rust spots and paint blemishes it’s very dry, straight and complete. Need new roof rail and door rubbers and steering box is leaking. Drives and stops well. Chassis and floors dry and rust -free. It starts easily and runs well without any knocks or smoke. I’m helping the seller with this sale so please contact me by email or call me with any questions. All reasonable offers will be considered. More pictures available on request.
