.There is a lot of nice rivieras on this site that I am sure look better than mine but I like it.
The interior is mint and was well taken care of, it looks better inside than the pics show.
I hope to repaint it this fall after the boat goes into winter storage it has the peeling clear coat on the back. There is like no rust on it even though it is a Mn car.
It had 140000 on it when I bout it in Nov. I paid 1400 for it put new tires and a battery on it right away, It had a check engine light on I took care of with a new crank sensor.
While I had the belts off for that I noticed the supper charger had quite a bit of play so I Put a new coupler in and while I had the super charger of went ahead and did the intake gaskets, chaged the transmision filter and fluid. It runs and drives like a new car. The only thing Ive had to do since is put new shocks on the rear.
It had new struts,new radiator,and new brakes and calipers all the way around just before I bought it.
This car is a lot of fun to drive, I only keep a car around to save gas and miles on my truck( which I still prefer to drive)but at gas prices where they are 25 mpg is better than 15 mpg.
I ended up with this car after my 22 year old son really needed a car and had no money so I gave him my 94 lincoln mk 8, and found this one on craigs list in the twin cities for sale from the original mechanic owner.
