Riviera Hardtop
The 1951 Buick Roadmaster Series 70 Riviera hardtop was the top of the line closed automobile offered by Buick. The Roadmasters exclusively were fit with the large, straight 8,320 cu.in. 'Fireball' engine. The Buick automatic transmission was shift-less and called the DynaFlow, and was known for its smoothness in operation.

This car was displayed at the 100th year anniversary celebration in 2003 in Flint, Michigan - the birthplace of Buick. The hardtop design gave the sportiness of a convertible but with the comfort of a closed car. The original price for the Riviera Hardtop was $4,145 with around 12,901 examples being produced. The Riviera Hardtop rested on a 126.25 inch wheelbase while the Riviera Sedan was given a 130.25-inch wheelbase. The Sedan version cost $3,200 with a total of 48,758 examples being produced. The Other two Series 70 bodystyles available were the two-door Convertible and four-door Estate Wagon. The Wagon cost nearly $4,000 while the convertible fetched $3,450. The estate wagon was the most exclusive with only 679 examples produced. A total of 2911 Convertible Roadmasters were sold.
