Vehicle OverviewThis is IT! Your last chance to own a NEW 1982 Buick Riviera Convertible!
This car is located in a car collection in Plano Texas.
When it comes to the 1980's there were only a handful of cars that truly defined the era. Emerging from a dark period when American cars had become so bloated and obese-lathered with padded tops, pillowed seats and massive bodies laboring on spongy suspensions-Detroit was trying mightily to catch up with the steadily increasing influx of lighter, more fuel efficient and, frankly, better built imports.
When the Buick Riviera burst onto the scene in 1979, it was truly an unforgettable and much-needed boost of confidence to the nameplate that had graced the "Riv's" of the 1950's and 1960's. By the mid 70's, Buick had lost its way and was slapping the Riviera nameplate on an overgrown behemoth that looked more like a 2 door Estate Wagon than anything else. But then the E-body Rivera emerged with its trimmer, more athletic physique with crisp, starched lines and a subtle elegance that said, "the Riviera is back in the game."
But the best was yet to come...
In 1982, Buick introduced the first convertible to have emerged from the bowels of Detroit since 1976-and it was unforgettable. The American financial system was recovering from an economy that was just beginning to rebound and Buick took a big chance on a high priced convertible. Consider this: a brand new 1982 Buick Riviera hardtop, a best seller for Buick, cost $14,898.45 (base price with freight)-not a cheap car by any standard. The 1982 Buick Riviera Convertible, a new untested car for Buick, cost $24,494.25 (base price with freight). Add some options and this car could top out at over $27,500.00. This was the highest priced automobile GM sold, and that counted the entire brand, including Cadillac.
