Caprice Running Gear: 1953 Buick Special Riviera Coupe
This car looks familiar. But sometimes, they all look familiar, and with the flood of fabulous tips that deluge DT’s inbox each day (seriously, thanks for all the tips!) I’m never sure if I’ve seen something before. Find this 1953 Buick Special Riviera Coupe running on a Caprice Classic chassis and running gear offered for $9,500 in Ft Myers, FL via craigslist. Tip from Dascpcu.
This repeat offender was featured here in Nov of 2016 for $9,500…eventually the price should drop.
This as actually an amazing deal. This car definitely benefits from the new chassis and drivetrain.
A few details would make this car perfect.
New wheels or period correct hubcaps / moon disc
Period correct steering wheel
I would want a nice bench seat with tuck-n-roll
