245 - Buick Riviera


Introduced into the Corgi range in 1964, the Buick Riviera was produced in gold, metallic blue and pale blue. It was given Glidamatic suspension and Corgi’s innovative ‘Trans-O-Lite’ front and rear lights – which could be independently operated by placing your hand over either the front windscreen or rear window.

Unusually for a Corgi it came with a rear tow hook, which could be hitched to a separately available boat and trailer (Corgi 104). The model sold well on both sides of the Atlantic – over 800,000 were produced – and remained in production until 1968. The most sought after version today is the version with wire wheels – as opposed to cast spokes or plain spun hubs. The Riviera and boat combination was also available as Gift Set (No.13).

My Buick Riviera

As an owner of a classic 63 Riviera, I am always looking for anything related to my car.
I have many pictures and model cars and I particularly like the model car I purchased from Corgi Model Club USA!
Details on this model are great and I have two on a shelf with all my others.
The corgi model is almost the same color as my real car too!

This model reproduces the original Corgi Riviera perfectly! It exceeded my expectations! The casting is crisp and clean. The paint is flawless and I love the color! The reproduction box is great as well!
