The Gran Sport name has been used on several high-performance cars built by Buick since 1965. In the GM brands hierarchy, Buick was surpassed in luxury and comfort appointments only by Cadillac, which did not produce performance models. As a result, the Buick GS series were the most opulently equipped GM sport models of their era.
The Riviera Gran Sport was a high-performance luxury version of the Buick Riviera, produced from 1965 through 1975.
In 1965, it was called Riviera Gran Sport and the later models were still officially called Gran Sport but showed GS badges instead of Gran Sport. Unlike the mid-size GS models, the Riviera and Wildcat GS package included a standard 3.42 positraction rear axle until 1973. The 1965 (and optional in 1966) Riviera Gran Sport also came with a 425 cubic "Super Wildcat" engine, with dual carbs and dual snorkel chrome air cleaner. You could add H2 option (Ride and handling package) for even better road handling. Shorter gear ratio for steering, 1 inch lower suspension.
This Welly 1/24 -27 scale diecast model represents a 1965 Buick Riviera Gran Sport.. The doors open revealing the interior details such as seats, steering wheel, and instrument panel. The hood opens showing a detailed engine. The wheels are free rolling and made of rubber.
