This incredible looking 1963 Buick Riviera makes a change from all those Geneva debuts and garish SUVs. No part of the Riviera has been left untouched. Custom-made by Fesler for Tony Diaz, the co-founder of toy maker Ronin Syndicate, the instruction was to create sinister looking car with a 1930’s gangster vibe. All that exterior aggression is matched by a LS-1 Corvette powerplant coupled to an automatic gearbox and custom exhaust system. It features custom vertical headlights, shaved door handles, LED strip taillights, 20-inch Fesler deep-dish alloys, and an awesome flat-black paint job.
This 1963 Buick Riviera, however, is unique, as is its story. He was looking for something menacing for his daily prowl, and the long and low stance of the Riviera , coupled with the special wheels, flat black paint and subtle details really get the job done. It's really hard to innovate in the world of modified muscle cars, and while you can get a great result if you opt for the right model and modifications, chances are somebody has already done it bigger and better. Power and performance figures have not been released, but unless it has loads of it, chances are this will not be the best car to drive around a corner when you are in a hurry. The car was modified by Fesler, which left no part untouched. First off, the coupe model features an LS-1 Corvette engine, which is coupled to an automatic gearbox.

Obviously the final price is going to depend on the actual condition of your car.
Critical questions are:

A '63 Riveria in excellent original (nonrestored) condition with fewer than 75,000 miles is worth between $12,000 and $16,000.
If your car has been in Illinois for a long time, rust is going to be a big concern. The '63 Riviera is a very popular car for restoration, but there are enough of them around in very good shape that the the price drops pretty quickly if there are any of the problems I mentioned.
