Streetside Classics is pleased to announce this gorgeous, survivor-grade 1950 Buick Super Riviera for your consideration.

The minty green paint is not original to the car, but that could be your little secret. It sports that classic single-stage look with the ideal 1950’s pale hue. It emits a luster like no other, and one that truly brings out the nostalgia in this classic. This model is also only the second year that Buick offered the now-famous, cool pillarless hardtop. Every classic design element of this car is just beautiful from the long front fender line to the rear wheel arch that mimics a fastback roofline. The bumpers on this example are in great shape with just the right amount of patina to make people really view it as the survivor machine it is. All in all, this is an impressive example of a vintage classic that has been loved for over 70 years.

The pillarless hardtop on this Super Riviera also allows people to get a good look inside. In the cabin, there’s more original styling to drive home the fact that this is a survivor-grade example. It’s complete with everything right down to the AM radio that is still fully operational. Sit in the driver’s seat and you’ll be transported back to the 1950s as you grip the original Buick Super wheel with a stylized center cap. Behind that are clear and correct gauges set in an original art deco dashboard.

The piano-style hinge of the hood is always something that draws crowds at car shows and events. As the people start to gather around this Buick, they’ll ooh and ahh at the motor’s original condition, right down to the correct carb and generator. Powering this beauty is a 263 cubic-inch (Fireball 8) straight-eight that is believed to be original to the coupe. These inline engines were known for being smooth–a feeling that is heightened by the Dynaflow automatic transmission.
