Designed by Hot Rods and Custom Stuff, the classic luxury coupe was heavily revamped with the shop cutting the roof by 3.5 inches and reshaping the body to reduce panel gaps.
The shop also removed the door handles and installed 18-inch alloy wheels that mimic the look of the originals. Of course, one of the car’s most notable features was the custom paint job that took about 1,500 hours to complete.
While the exterior is widely customized, the cabin still has so much of an old-fashioned charm that it was left mostly in stock condition. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing as some of the attempts to combine modern technology with classic style come with mixed results. Regardless, the car features two-tone leather seats, bright chrome trim, and peel-off carpet.
To ensure the car rides as well as it looks, the Riviera has been completely restored as the shop has rebuilt the engine and transmission. The car was also equipped with an airbag suspension, an upgraded air conditioning system and an improved alternator.
