In 1965, the stylists under the tutelage of Bill Mitchell pulled out all the stops and designed headlamps hidden behind clamshell doors, which covered the headlamps in this one-year-only offering. This design was originally to be introduced in 1963, but GM body engineers axed the idea, citing cost and the time required to develop it. Other than the covered headlamps, the 1965 version had a mild update on the grille, the rear quarter trim, the rear end, and a new rear bumper wheel now housed the taillamps.
Buick also introduced the Riviera Gran Sport or GS package-option code A9-in 1965, on several cars throughout its line, including the Skylark, the Wildcat and the Riviera.
As with all photographic prints, it is best to mount under glass or plastic. Do not touch the surface of the print as it will leave fingerprints. DO NOT GET WET.
