The burgundy leather interior is a great complementing standout color to the bright white exterior. It appears to be original, and it still matches nicely on the seats, carpets, and dash. The burled walnut veneer is some of the most handsome trim for any car in the 80s, and as expected with such an expensive convertible, it came loaded. This one has power seats, power windows, tilt wheel, cruise control, the original AM/FM/cassette stereo, provisions for air conditioning, and a power convertible top. In other words, it has everything you want for a cool comfortable droptop cruiser. Under the hood is the optional 307 cubic inch V8. It looks so honest that we believe the mileage is correct, and we suspect the powerplant is original to this car. The V8 motor was a valuable piece to give the Riviera the right kind of torque to move it around with authority. The attitude on this one was to be the comfortable cruiser that took the place of the Cadillac convertible that ceased production a few years prior. That’s why it came with luxury driving features like the grand touring suspension, and four-speed overdrive automatic transmission. This is the kind of classic that you’re not intimidated to take on the long trips, thanks to power steering and four-wheel disc brakes.
