Seller’s Description:
Absolutely breathtaking 1958 Buick Limited Convertible. Everything about the car is terrific and a very rare "survivor" car. 1958 Buicks are the pinnacle of 1950's chrome and design flair. These Limiteds are RARE...RARE...RARE.
History
Owned by one family until about 12 years ago. I have 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.
Interior
The seats were covered in the original Buick upholstery before I purchased the car. Carpeting appears to match the original. I sourced original Limited fabric for the trunk in the correct color and was installed beautifully
Mechanical
Engine history is known however it runs beautifully with no missing of 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.
EXTRAS
I have acquired two fantastic options that are not currently installed. Both are available at additional cost.
First I have a complete original air conditioning system. This includes all mechanical components, dash controls, vents, etc. Compressor, evaporator and condenser have been rebuilt at considerable expense. This also includes all dash vents, under dash ducting, dash operational controls, and under dash and behind fender heater and condenser units.
Next, I have a complete original rebuilt headlight dimming system. This includes the dash mounted sensor, wiring, and proper control box that is mounted behind the left kick panel
Work/Repairs Needed
The foot operated starter engage switch on the carburetor can be hooked up, but I prefer the momentary toggle switch under the dash.

Price: $165,000 negotiable ​​
