Description 1974 Buick Riviera GS Stage 1, 3:42 posi, buckets, sunroof, loaded



this 74 Riviera Stage 1 GS was sold new in Oklahoma, it has the proper W in the VIN that denotes it as a true Stage 1 equipped car.
there were 4,119 74 Riv GS built, and 1,698 Stage 1 74 Rivs.
there are no figures on how many Rivs had both the GS and Stage 1 packages.
it was originally a white car but had a complete color change many years ago to a brick red.
I bought it in 2008 and imported it to Canada.
odo reads 42k, I assume its 142k but I have no way of knowing for sure. It runs & drives like a 42k car.
in order to register it, it had to pass a strict inspection and everything had to be as new.
the original motor had been replaced with a warranty block years ago, this was rebuilt about 10 years ago. 
it was painted metallic pearl red in 2012.
these pics were taken yesterday which was a cloudy day - when the sun is on the car the paint glows like it is on fire.
it is loaded with options, including some that were added by the original owner whose family kept the car until around 2010. 
it has a power passenger bucket seat and power moonroof that weren't available in 74.
other options include pw, p locks, p trunk, p drivers bucket seat, cruise, tilt, amfm 8 track (not hooked up),
I swapped the original 3.23 posi axle for a 3.42 axle from a 71 riviera gs
I also upgraded the front and rear sway bars to thicker ones, the front end is rebuilt, the rebuilt trans has a shift kit, and new heavy duty rear coil springs were installed as well as new brakes u-joints mounts etc.
It has :
rare dual snorkel Grand Sport air filter cap
digital tach in place of the clock (a clock will come with the car)
Comfort Grip Rally steering wheel
fender top light monitors
cornering lights
dual remote sport mirrors
new door, window and trunk rubber weatherstrip seals inc door handle gaskets - trim was removed when car was painted.
4 note "locomotive" horn
console shift
I dont know if there is a working power antenna or not, Ive never checked.
the headliner and door armrests have been redone in a much higher quality material than original
upgraded lower door panel trim & courtesy lights
new sunroof seals and drain tubes
new door pins
a/c changed to 134a, prob needs a recharge
4 newer Michelin whitewalls on buick chrome wheels
Michelin spare tire, never been on ground dual exhaust has a nice rumble
this car runs and drives very well, and thanks to the thicker front & rear sway bars it corners surprisingly flat.
there is no rust, some rust repair was done ahead of the rear wheels - new metal was installed.
the turn signal lever has snapped, a replacement has been installed but needs to have the wiring for the cruise control run through the steering column.
the wiper switch is loose in the dash, and the door mirror adjustment levers are stiff.
the car needs some upholstery work and some paint touchup on the lower dash to bring it to the next level.
I would not hesitate to drive it from coast to coast

the car could be delivered to Seattle WA for expenses
