1958 Buick LIMITED Chrome Everywhere Description:

1958 Buick Limited Convertible

MAGNIFICENT & RARE !

Absolutely breathtaking 1958 Buick Limited Convertible. Everything about the car is terrific and a very rare car. 1958 Buick'sare the pinnacle of 1950's chrome and design flair. These Limiteds are RARE...RARE...RARE.

History

Owned by one family until about 8 years ago. I have a scan of the original owner’s certificate. That owner apparently performed the restoration and passed a few years later. The car was sold at auction to a dealer whom I purchased the car from.

Exterior

Beautiful repaint in a silver blue which was the original color. There are essentially no blemishes in paint, chrome, glass or stainless. The car is absolutely breathtaking. This particular Buick is referred to as the most heavily chromed and flashy car ever made in the 1950’s. Modern radial tires are mounted on steel rims. I think the rims were originally painted red per photos I've seen. I did not pain the rims as the color looks unpleasant IMO.

Interior

The seats were recovered before I purchased the car. Two-tone blue seats are trim code 712 per my original 1958 Buick Showroom album. Carpeting appears to match the original but is wearing so I'd recommend replacement. I sourced original Limited fabric for the trunk in the correct color from SMS and was installed beautifully.

Mechanical

Engine history is unknown however it runs beautifully with no missing or vibrations. Starts right up even after sitting for a few weeks. Compression checks out fine. Engine compartment is all correct. Brakes all excellent with no leaks. Rebuilt Flight Pitch Dynaflow works perfectly! If you don’t know these transmissions, they are incredibly complex and parts availability is low. A local multi-decade experienced shop disassembled, inspected and resealed the unit.

Undercarriage

Completely detailed to absolute beauty! Also installed is a complete factory correct exhaust system. The classic “Buick Burble” sound is there!

Driving

The car drives wonderfully, shock absorbers are not weak and no vibrations exist. I recently went through the documentation and old receipts that came with the car. Appears the car went through a reconditioning in 1989-1991 which included rebuilt engine, steering & suspension, paint & interior.
