This is a 1:18 scale die-cast model of a Buick Riviera GS (Gran Sport).
The Riviera was radically redesigned for the 1971 model year with flowing boat-tail styling and a two-piece fastback rear window, inspired by the 1963 Corvette Sting Ray split window coupe. It also sported two large deck lid louvers on the trunk lid.

    Wasn't that about the ugliest design ever? Raspberry award that.

    I had one just like that ,but the tan body was sligthly darker.When my daughter was born I took my wife to the hospital in the Riv on an icy night.The water pump was shot and it over heated. I kept going. I had to burn rubber through black ice up the last 100 yd hill to the hospital.

    This is magnificent, I could look at these cars of yours all day long. What beauties ! I love the look of the back of the car, if it were backing up you could easily imagine that was the front of the car coming at you !~

    That's it! It's built backwards!

    This was Telly Savalas's ride in the Kojak series.

    Did the original have those louvers in the trunk? I don't remember them. Very nice, and the vinyl top detail is awesome!

    The 1971 Riviera featured a "Full-Flo" ventilation system and two large deck lid louvers are prominent on the trunk lid. (Unfortunately, under certain conditions a vacuum was created that sucked rain and exhaust back into the car and the "Full-Flo" ventilation was redesigned and the louvers were removed from trunk lid for the 1972 model year.)
