I know, I know not another Riviera – but the triple brown of this car just sucked me in and wouldn’t let me go. Between the beautiful deep caramel paint, the honking 455 under the hood, and the low price, it doesn’t get more “affordable personal luxury” than this. The color on the door is just slightly off, so any prospective buyers would be wise to check for collision or rust damage in that area, but aside from that it looks fantastic. The Rivi had gotten pretty bloated by this time, and any sporting pretensions were pretty much gone by this point, but I bet it’s a fantastic highway cruiser and way more comfortable than almost any other car you could buy for six grand.
