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.

About the Artist:

James Knake is a professional illustrator/graphic designer with a B.F.A in Illustration from Ringling College of Art & Design. He has had a fascination with cars since he was a young boy. Always playing with car toys and building models. While in high school, he was hanging around with the guys who had Camaros, GTOs, Mustangs, anything fast with a big motor! James became obsessed with Muscle Cars from the 60’s and 70’s. After high school he purchased an old beat up 1967 Pontiac Firebird for $300 and proceeded to spend his time fixing it up and learning on the go. Bodywork, engine rebuilding, electrical systems, you name it. He sold that car years ago, but his love for classic muscle cars continues to this day. Now James has turned his attention to illustrating them. He decided to start painting some of his favorite cars from the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s.
