When's the last time you saw one of these offered for sale? Only 1 out of 5 1954 Rivieras was a Century. 1954 was the year that Buick reintroduced the Century. It shared the smaller wheel base of the Special but had the big Roadmaster engine. The engine was a 322ci nailhead with a 4 barrel carb and produced 200 hp. In 1954 it was one of thethree fastest production cars made. It earned the title "Banker's Hotrod". The roofline is also different from the Super and Roadmaster.
This car has spent its entire life in Texas and Arizona and in absolutely RUST FREE. It has had one repaint and that still looks good, The upholstery and carpets are also in good shape. The bumper and grille have been rechromed and the stainless is excellent. The tires are Coker Classic bias plys and are in good shape, the spare is new. The engine was rebuilt in 1989 and since I bought the car I have spent over $5,000 correcting mechanical and other issues. A partial list of the improvements made are, new master cylinder, rebuilt fuel pump, addition of auxillary electric fuel pump with under dash toggle switch. repair of all guages, repair of speedometer, odometer reads 29+K miles but I doubt if that is accurate. Complete new windshield wiper assembly, new horn relay, repair and lube of all cables associated with heat and defrost, much electrical rewiring to ensure that all lights work properly. Repair of the optional WonderBar Radio (a $1000 item today) new sending unit in fuel tank. adjustments made to improve steering,
adjustments to the synaflow transmission to ensure that it locks up in park. Hoses replaced as needed.
