For 1969, Buick offered a cosmetic update on its popular sport coupe, the Riviera. That year saw new side body brightwork, including new wheel arch trim and a new lower body molding with argent silver accents. Out front, the famous Riviera retractable headlights and integrated front bumper and grille were used again for 1969. Inside, Buick offered a variety of interior options, including bench, bucket, and notchback front seats. The interior was available in a variety of configurations, including various combinations of vinyl and cloth seating surfaces. A wood-grain dash, unique to the Riviera, was standard.

At $5,331, the Riviera was the most expensive Buick offered in 1969. Nevertheless, it is reported that 52,872 Rivieras, including the car offered here, found owners that year. This Riviera is reported to be a two-owner, unrestored example and is presented in its original Code 82 Olive Beige paint with Buckskin Tan vinyl interior. The 60,740 miles shown on the odometer is said to be the original mileage. It is well equipped with power steering, power brakes, power windows, six-way power seat, tilt steering wheel, and a factory AM-FM radio. The car also has factory air conditioning, which has been converted to use modern R-134a refrigerant. The consignor reports that all accessories, except the clock, are functioning properly.

Having been well preserved and meticulously maintained, this original and rust-free Riviera is a fine example of Buick’s top-of-the-line offering. Included with the sale are the original factory owner’s manual, warranty book, warranty ID card, accessories booklet, jacking equipment, including instruction decal, spare tire, and a custom car cover.
