Up for auction is a 1965 Buick Riviera. It is a Numbers matching Gran sport. it comes with 85% of the parts to put it together. I started to take it apart to restore it but have lost interest. So I decided to sell it. the car has the 425 nailhead with dual quad intake both of the carbs are rebuilt. it has the bs code trans and posi as well. it has power windows power antenna (but its missing) A/C. The interior is all original. the wood has some weathering to it but for being original its doing good. the door panels themselves are in good shape. It has cloth seats the front have some wear but that's normal but they are not broke down. The back seats just need a good cleaning. The dash board is in great shape with no cracks. the package tray has seen some better days but its there. the carpet is good. It is missing the brake booster and air cleaner. For the body I started repairing the floors the passenger side and back seat areas are done. The drivers side and the inside of the trunk needs to be done but the holes are not bad. Theres a crease in the drivers quarter, both the bottoms of the fenders and a few other small spots need to be repaired you can see in the pics. The hood is fixable its not the best but definitely not the worst. Ive done the best I can to describe it but if you wanna kno anything else about the car please ask. The car is being sold as-is. $500. deposit is due at auction end. Thanks for looking I had to relist the car due to the last guy backing out after he won it....

Just the other day, we told you about how Lincoln isn't really a luxury brand, according to Ford's head design man, J Mays. His argument was that Lincoln lacked the unique DNA to differentiate it from the rest of the market, although the arrival of the MKZ is beginning to change that. Now, we have this video from Autoline Detroit, where Jim Hall, an analyst for 2953 Analytics who was quoted in yesterday's Lincoln story, explains the influence of certain styling cues and how they impact the brands.
Using BMW (Angel Eyes) and Buick (Ventiports) as examples for small, simple touches that serve to distinguish the brand's vehicles on the road, Hall then points out how changing trademark styling features, as Chevrolet has done on the new Corvette Stingray, can hurt the vehicle's public perception. Take a look at the full video below for an interesting dive into what these styling features mean to their individual brands.
Considering that crossovers are a rapidly growing portion of the US auto market, it's not surprising to hear that General Motors is preparing to build even more of them. The company is investing $63 million to expand its Lansing Delta Township Assembly plant that builds Lambda platform CUVs like the Chevrolet Traverse, GMC Acadia and Buick Enclave.
According to GM, the expansion will add roughly 263,000 extra square feet of space to the plant. Of that, 181,000 square feet will be for an updated body shop with cutting-edge robots. There will also be 54,000 square feet of additional room in the paint shop and 28,000 square feet of more area for general assembly.
GM isn't saying as much, but there is the possibility that this extra space could allow for additional models produced at the factory. Cadillac reportedly dropped plans to build a three-row SUV on the Lambda platform earlier this year, however, dealers for the luxury brand were recently pitched the possibility of adding large and small CUVs, an ATS convertible or a sedan below the ATS.
With its first full year of sales in the bag, it's safe to say that Buick has a hit on its hands with the Encore. US buyers have snatched up 31,046 of the small, premium crossovers since the Encore went on sale in January of 2013, while 97,311 were sold globally (not counting its counterparts from Opel and Vauxhall).
While we liked the Encore when we first drove it, we'll admit, we weren't sure how the tiny CUV would do. In fact, the first thing Executive Editor Chris Paukert wrote about the Encore was, "We admit it. We have no earthly idea how this whole thing is going to shake out." But it's done well, and has been subject to heavy demand over the past year, blowing away the estimates of analysts, who, according to an August story from Automotive News, projected no more than 18,500 units would be sold in 2013.
"Right out of the gate, demand for the Encore was high," Tony DiSalle, vice president of Buick marketing said in a statement. "It accounted for most of the segment's growth last year and that's because it offers the right safety, technology and features in the right-sized vehicle for many customers."
