Comments: "When I bought this car from a Buick dealer, in Roseburg, Oregon, I was told that I was the second owner. This was in 1967. I then sold it in 1969. It was a trade-in. The car was very clean and straight. At the time the license plate number was KAV 267. The valve covers were "465 Wildcat". It didn't have A/C or cruise control. I would like to find this car and restore if possible."

Bought this car from my grandfather in Florida in 1987 and I had my first date in it with my current wife. I think the Riviera is the reason why she married me? :) Thanks, Brian."

I had car for about three years, and then it was traded in Lubbock, TX around 1972 to an unknown auto dealer. Have the MSRP sticker for this car, would be willing to give (current owner) the sticker if we could see the car again or maybe even ride in it. Car was hit in the front some time but was repaired and looked really nice after in was repaired in 1971. Had a lot of fun with this car when I was a kid and would really like to see it again, or ride in it, or if possible buy the car back."

Comments: "Looking for our family's '63 Buick Wildcat: Black body, red interior, hardtop, bench front seat, stainless steel panels on the fenders and two on the rear. Unsure if it had A/C or power windows; don't think so. Purchased new in '63 on Long Island, NY north shore. Sold in Roslyn (L.I.), NY in late 1973 to Cunnigham. Cunningham sells vehicle to an "auto buff" in Glen Cove (L.I.), NY. Trail goes cold from there. No VIN to supply...but this helps: The following 6 digits would be production # (6J1 = Flint, Mich., plant, '63 Wildcat; 6J3 = Linden, NJ, plant, '63 Wildcat; 6J5 = Wilmington, DE, plant, '63 Wildcat.) I am aware of two identical cars in NY, one two hours north of NYC and one near Buffalo. Neither of these is a match. Owner's manual is probably with the car, if it hasn't gone to salvage yard. Don't think car would have been painted another color with black body/red interior."

I would love to have it back. I left the car at that address because I had no place to keep it after moving back to town. Any info or leads much appreciated. I'm also looking for another one. The vinyl roof was red and there was a paint stain on the back seat. That car was my first love."

Comments: "My grandparents had a 1958 Roadmaster 75 four-door, black exterior with the black cloth and silver leather/vinyl interior. I can remember riding in it while sitting on the rear armrest, back before seatbelt laws. All of the details of the car fascinated me. Being very young and only as tall as the door handles, I would have a close up view of the chrome details, especially the rear quarter panel details. After my grandfather died, my grandmother (to my disappointment) traded this car for a 1966 Buick Electra. Being seven years old at the time, I had no say in this or even knew she was getting a new car until she came over with it.

Although it is a longshot that it still might exist, I remember that it was in very good condition when traded in October 1965. I have found some old service invoices for it with the mileage and VIN number. In November 1961, it had 26,000 miles and in October 1962, it had 30,000 miles. Based on this, I would guess that it had somewhere between 40,000 and 50,000 miles on it when it was traded. It was traded to Haverty Buick in Portland, Maine in October 1965. Given that people were always asking to buy it when she had it, it probably sold quick. Given its good condition and low mileage, I'm hoping that subsequent owners took good care of it and that it still exists.

The VIN number was 7E7003880. It was a black Roadmaster four-door with a black and silver interior. Options included a radio, heater, Autronic eye automatic headlight dimmer, and air suspension, which was replaced with coils around 1959. I would love to know if it still exists, and most likely (over the wife's objections) would want to buy it."
