1971 Buick Riviera Boattail on 2040-cars
Aberdeen, Mississippi, United States
I am selling my 1971 Buick Riviera with 111,724 original miles on it. It has the original 455 with 4 barrel carburetor, has lots of power and runs very well, never presented me with a problem or failed to start. Has AC (currently not working, has no belt and needs charge I'm sure), power windows (all of which function), power steering and disk brakes up front. The only issue with the engine is the carburetor, the linkage on the passenger side of the carb is missing (can be seen in pictures) which causes the 4 barrel not to open properly. It makes for a good cruiser as is but if you punch it, it will stutter since it's not opening up. It does run great aside from this issue, a new carb or a kit would fix this. Has a new dual exhaust ran and sounds awesome. The body is in good shape with very little rust. There is a little on the top side of the door jam, a spot along the lip of the hood, and a little in the lip in the trunk under the rear window but it isn't rusted through, just surface rust all of which can be seen in the pictures. I believe this is due to a leak in the rear window, bad seal or something along those lines, just haven't had the opportunity to deal with it and since I keep it in the carport it hasn't really been a problem. The drivers side rear floor pan has been patched and is strong but not a professional job has can be seen if you crawl under the car. The interior is in decent shape, the rear seats need cleaning up and there are 4 cracks in the dash, I took a picture of the worst one. Also, the headliner has been removed. The bucket seats that are in it now are not original, but I do have the original bench seat that came in the car. It is complete but could use recovering as the passenger side seams are splitting and there's a large tear in the driver's side. Speaking of the driver's side, the door handle is broken on that door. It can still be easily opened from the outside but a replacement handle would be ideal. Has $1,000 worth of American Racing wheels which give it a good stance. Tires are fair but could use replacing, more so up front. All in all this is a good solid car, a great driver and with a little work it could be in excellent shape. I drove this car to a wedding recently and put over 400 miles on it in a weekend, it's the only classic I own and will leave home in without my toolbox. Comes with some original pamphlets and also some service records of the car that were kept. I have tried to mention everything about the car and believe I have done so, but feel free to ask any questions. I can be reached via message through eBay or on my cell at 662-315-1337, text or call. Thanks for looking, Thomas.

Following the introduction of the updated 2014 Buick LaCrosse and Regal, the oldest vehicle in Buick's lineup will be the Verano, which was just introduced last year. Having such a fresh product mix bodes well for Buick as it tries to create a new image in the US, and after checking out the amount of luxury being stuffed into the new LaCrosse for 2014, GM's awkwardly positioned brand may finally have the ability to stand out.

Granted, the model unveiled was the all-new, top-of-the-line Ultra Luxury Interior Package, but this package brings top-notch leather and soft suede covering everything above the beltline as well as real ash wood accent trim throughout the cabin. While there was no mention of price, we don't expect this model to come cheap in terms of what we expect from Buick, although it will likely be competitively priced with similarly equipped rivals like the Acura TL or Lexus ES. Adding even more to the LaCrosse's interior, dual eight-inch displays make up the gauge cluster and center stack, and the number of buttons on the center stack have been greatly reduced, creating a cleaner look for the instrument panel.
Another big change is the next-generation of Buick's IntelliLink infotainment system that brings with it all of the recent enhancements of the Cadillac CUE and Chevrolet MyLink systems. Differentiating itself from other GM infotainment systems, the new Buick IntelliLink stands out by allowing users to customize the apps they can add and not just being limited to what GM sees fit.
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."
Let's get the most pressing bits of this story out of the way right off the bat: What we see here appears to be a new compact crossover from Buick. According to the spy photographer, this machine may be a little bit smaller on the outside than the current Chevrolet Equinox and GMC Terrain 'utes, which makes sense since recent rumors suggest GM's small crossovers will migrate to a new platform that will mark a convergence between the automaker's Delta (Chevy Cruze, Buick Verano) and Theta (Equinox, Terrain) platforms. This Buick would likely use this new D2UX platform.
We've been expecting Buick to unleash a crossover to slot between the very small Encore and the very large Enclave, and various rumors have indicated that the model may be known as either the Anthem or Envision. It's worth mentioning that Buick had planned, back in 2009, to release a vehicle in the compact CUV market, but abandoned those plans after a particularly poor reception.
And now for something completely different... Take another look at the spy shots above, and pay special attention to the cylindrical device mounted to the vehicle's roof. We can't say for sure what it is, but our spy photographer opines that it looks quite a bit like the 360-degree Lidar camera equipment used by Google for its autonomous cars. Is General Motors working with Google on autonomous car technology? We don't know, but you can definitely consider us intrigued.
