Buick is a company known for making some of the most awesome under appreciated cars of all time. There are many reasons why this was the case, but one of the main ones was in the styling, which was often times unappreciated by the customers, as it failed to capture the imagination of their targeted audience. Still, with a bit of hard work and dedication, everything is possible.
Just take a look at this wonderful vehicle. We are talking about the 1972 Buick Riviera Boattail, just in case you haven’t recognized it. No blames there, as this car was heavily customized, and now, it just looks completely jaw-dropping. This prestigious vehicle was being manufactured for over 30 years, and the one from the video belongs to the third generation. These models were quite a bit different than the previous ones, sporting a massively redesigned rear end, commonly referred to as boattail. It was powered by a huge 455 engine that was slightly down on power compared to the similar Gran sport. Not to say it was a slouch, as it still was able to produce 255hp! It’s a shame that this generation never reached more commercial success, but that is what makes it even cooler today. Just check out the video, and let us know what you think of it. You will fall in love with it, guaranteed!
