Remember that the late hockey player was given the 1971 Riviera as a gift on the ice of the Colisée de Québec before the final game of the President’s Cup, when he was playing for the Remparts in the Quebec Junior Hockey League. The car was in the team’s colors: vintage red with a white interior and a white vinyl roof. Lafleur kept it for several years.

It turns out that the owner of PG Appraisal, Pierre Grenon, also had a Riviera of the same year and the same color.
