1965 Buick Riviera Gran Sport - Engine & Chassis
The Riv is powered by a dual-quad, "Super Wildcat",
425-cid nail-head V8; rebuilt and updated with Edelbrock carbs and Mooneyes
air and valve covers. Throttle and kickdown ends are Lokar.
A modern 4-wheel disc-brake set up from Stainless Steel Brakes
provide stopping power for this brute.
Here's a good look at the Riviera's cruciform frame.
Airbags by Air Ride Technologies cushion the ride. A 9-inch
Ford rear end from Currie puts power to the rear wheels and a Quickor sway
bar keeps it all in place.
