  • The year 1953 was a watershed for the Buick division. Not only did it mark Buick’s golden anniversary, it also saw the advent of the proprietary V-8 engine, which later came to be known as the nailhead for its vertical valves. The engine was dramatically shorter, lower, lighter, and more powerful than the lauded Fireball straight eight that had been the company’s mainstay. The new engine, combined with Buick’s trademark Dynaflow transmission, proved to be a winning combination for the higher trim levels. Among the most memorable models for 1953 were the Rivieras, which included a handsome pillarless hardtop. At its introduction, the design was marketed as “stunningly smart.”

    Atop Buick’s product line, in both style and price, was the Roadmaster, identifiable by its quad ventiports on the front fenders and chromed trim panels.

    The magnificent 1953 Buick Roadmaster Riviera Hardtop Coupe featured here is finished in stunning Mandarin Red over black with a black top. Recipient of a no-expense-spared restoration, this multiple show winner is among one of the best examples to come to market in years. Winner of the coveted Senior Gold award at the 2011 Buick Club of America nationals. Just released from a long-term prominent private collection and is now ready for its next caretaker. Incredible opportunity to own one of the best examples of a 1953 Buick Roadmaster Riviera Hardtop Coupe, offered to the most demanding collector investor or enthusiast who understands and appreciates this great American classic.

    Financing

    Finance rates as low as 5.9%.


    We know that classic car financing can pose a unique challenge. Although a vintage or exotic car can be an excellent investment, some financial institutions attempt to apply standard “used car” rules for financing a classic car, which in many cases can make loan approval difficult.


    We work closely with many banking institutions that understand and recognize the collector value of classic cars and view them as an investment, which allows us to help you get the financing you need so that you can have the car you have dreamed of.


    Terms available up to 144 Months


    If you have any questions, feel free to contact us, (314)291-7000 or credit@schmitt.com
