This is Art Deco at its finest. Very rare 2 door fast back with Dynaflow transmission. I havent seen another one like this anywhere including an extensive search of the internet. You will occasionally find the 2 door out there but not with the dynaflow. This was the first year that they offered it and the only ones I have seen them in were the 4 door version. The car is an older restoration and is ready for someone to either restore it or make a sled head out of it. I recently had the oil changed and the brake cylinders replaced. The tires are very good. The gas tank does need to be cleaned. The paint on it is starting to peel. The interior was re-done in crushed velour and looks good if you think crushed velour looks good! The engine runs but lacks power. Not sure if its the carb or the head needs to be re-done. The car is complete! I even have a few extra trim pieces a radiator and a custom tow hitch in case you wanted to pull your old air stream or tear drop trailer around with you once you re-stored this beautiful car. I have the vehicle for sale locally and reserve the right to sale it as such. Shipping will be the responsibility of the buyer, however I will help out anyway that I can. PAYMENT: A non-refundable deposit of $500 is to be made within 24 hours of the end of the auction. The remaining balance is to be made within 7 days.
The Buick Envision crossover is supposed to have its big reveal on August 28 and be on display at the Chengdu Motor Show, but apparently the new midsize crossover just can't wait to meet its public. Car News China caught a completely undisguised example parking outside of the convention center where the show is held.
The Buick designers are going right down the middle with the styling with nothing too flashy to turn off potential buyers. Still, it's a handsome CUV that kind of looks like a stretched Encore from some angles with vents along the hood, a large greenhouse and a prominent crease running down the side.
This new midsizer is hitting the Chinese market first and reportedly rides on GM's Delta platform that's also found underneath the Buick Verano. According to Car News China, prices there are between 160,000 yuan and 220,000 yuan ($26,000 - $35,800 at current rates). However, it's also rumored to eventually make its way across the Pacific to give Buick buyers in the US an option between the Encore compact crossover and larger Enclave.
It's nighttime in China, and Buick has just concluded an evening event the day before the first - and only - press day of the Shanghai Motor Show. The star of this evening's party was the Buick Riviera concept vehicle, a plug-in electric hybrid coupe that the automaker says gives a glimpse at its future design direction, not to mention resurrecting some nomenclature from the brand's history that includes a similarly named concept from 2007.
The shape of the Riviera is said to be inspired by water. While the traditional Buick "waterfall" grille is present, the front end gains a more aggressive note thanks to what appear to be vertical air inlets below each headlight.
As for the concept's drivetrain, Buick says it uses General Motors' new dual-mode wireless plug-in hybrid electric vehicle propulsion system, or W-PHEV for short. The keyword there is 'wireless,' as the Riviera can charge its onboard battery packs with a traditional cable or wirelessly via a "sensory recharge panel" underneath the car.
The options sheet of the 2014 Buick LaCrosse gets all kinds of fancy with the addition of the Ultra Luxury Interior. Pointing its Tri-Shield logo at the world of haute luxury, the cabin treatment combines sangria leather with ebony accents, shadow tamo ash wood trim and a microsuede headliner to "drive fashion forward."
You'll need to start with LaCrosse models with the 3.6-liter V6 and either the Leather, Premium or Premium II trims to go all Brioni and Buckingham on the cabin, and the privilege package will run you $2,495. We're told that you won't find such contrasting hues anywhere else in the class, though, and that kind of exclusivity might make any price a bargain.
You can find more information on the Ultra Luxury Interior in the press release below, along with some intensely fashion-foward gobbledygook.
