    I'm assisting BCA/AACA Member in listing his '73 Boattail for sale. Nearly (literally) perfect, except for a patch a trim shop made for the right door trim armrest. Incredible show quality repaint (among the best I've seen). Gorgeous immaculate interior. New stainless exhaust.
    Performs flawlessly. Vinyl roof is mint ( no shrinkage at edges). All mldgs are intact & undamaged.
    Seats/carpet ate survivor all original and are near perfect if there is such a thing. No bolster wear. No heel pad wear. No collision history. Solid car from Indiana that spent last 15+ years garaged in TN.
    Odometer is over mechanical limits and believed to be 125k.
    Car needs nothing.
    Previous owner added under-dash gauges as he didn't trust idiot lights. They can be seamlessly removed.
    455 Powerplant performs as it should. No unusual noises, idors, leaks. Literally rides like new. Tires have minimal wear.
    If you drive this car you'll absolutely buy it. It's incredible

    The top ad is from a somewhat shady and ridiculously overpriced "classic car" dealer known as Hollywood Motors in West Babylon. The kind of guys that you need to count your fingers after shaking their hand. I've seen them selling rattle can painted over rust and call it a "full restoration". The guy hounded me for months to sell him my mint G8 GT for $12k when it had a rough trade in of $17k.
    No idea about the second one except the rear seat cover looks baggy.

    Look at the bottom of the driver's seat on the one from Franklin,Tenn. Tell me that hasn't been recovered. Look at the picture of the top of the back seat.It sure does look like cloth,not vinyl like the rest of the pictures. I don't believe you could get a rear mounted power antenna either. Maybe I'm being to critical but for the money I would expect better. Tom

    condition: excellent
    cylinders: 8 cylinders
    drive: rwd
    fuel: gas
    paint color: silver
    size: full-size
    title status: clean
    transmission: automatic
    type: coupe

    The " Boat Tail" was only made 3 years (1971-1973). I've owned this gem for past 25 years. All original 455cu inch 7.5 liter V-8. Was built for cruising and luxury back in the day.... AC, power windows, power seats, power mirrors. Over the years engine and transmission completely rebuilt, Edelbrock intake and high performance cam, dual 3" exhaust, Pioneer detachable CD, alarm, interior in excellent condition, body clean and straight. Mechanically perfect and runs strong. Has been garage kept for most of 25 years. Classic car, don't see many in this condition. Odometer has never worked, very low miles since I've owned as we didn't drive it often. $15,000 serious inquiries only, no trades.

    Original and extremely well maintained 1973 Buick Riviera GS.
    The California Car started its journey in Palm Springs and briefly stopped in GA before I got her.
    The re paint is in original color and it in very good shape. Mechanically is super sound with no leaks and matching numbers.

    A/C blows cold and has been converted to 134a.

    Still has original CA emissions. I do believe it has had an overhaul at some point since the oil runs clean and there are zero fluid leaks.

    New tire and recent brakes, as well as numerous other ongoing normal maintenance.

    Welcome to full Inspection by appointment.

    $21,900
