Only 1,026 1958 Limited Riviera coupes rolled off Buick's assembly line and very few remain, few if any as pristine as this low mileage beauty. I purchased the car in 1991 with 19,000 original miles. As of January 2002, the odometer only showed a low, low 25,800 miles. With Laurel Mist and Polar Mist two tone paint, absolutely mint original black Mojave Cloth and silver leather interior, this Limited is loaded with luxury options. The plush original carpeting and extremely rare original Buick "Carpet Saver" floormats are like new. I spent countless hours meticulously and authentically restoring the engine compartment to show-winning perfection.

The 1958 Buick Limited has more chrome and stainless steel trim than any car ever manufactured. The brightwork on this Limited was either restored by one of America's finest chrome platers or replaced with brand new original parts. The powerful "B-12000" 364 cu in. engine is unrestored and doesn't need to be, however I did repaint the engine as part of the engine compartment restoration. The super-smooth Flight Pitch transmission was new for 1958 and standard equipment on the Limited. This triple-turbine wonder was the newest and most advanced version of Buick's famous shiftless Dynaflow transmission. The Frigidaire factory air conditioner was completely restored and works perfectly. Other accessories include a Wonderbar signal-seeking radio with foot switch for changing stations, power antenna, tissue dispenser with its original Kleenex box, "Speedminder" speed warning buzzer, under-seat heaters, power windows that zip up and down, 6 way power seat, clock, and power brakes. Everything works as new.
