Additional Info

The 1958 Buick Limited Rivera was
available as a 4-door hardtop, a 2-door hardtop and a convertible.  This car is a 2-door hardtop and there were
only 1,026 made.  This makes it a very
rare model.

The
1958 model is remembered by many enthusiasts as the zenith of automotive
excess: the largest cars with the most lavish trim. In period literature, Buick
proclaimed that the new lineup “looks and feels like flight on wheels.” Dubbed
the “Air Born B-58,” the 1958 Buicks were considered to be immediately stunning
to the eye with a big, bold presence. The cars were stated to have been “born
out of more aviation principles, starting with the extensive new use of
aluminum throughout, than any car before.”

Along
with the look of flight being part of their design philosophy; Buick wanted the
car to be associated with the principles of flight for their mechanical
performance, accomplished by the 364-cid, 300-hp “nailhead” V-8. The Limited
featured the Flight Pitch Dynaflow transmission, which featured three turbines
and a variable-pitch stator.

Few
American cars of the era were more chrome-covered than the 1958 Buick Limited.
True to the Limited heritage, the 1958 Limited was the top of the line,
carrying the same dynamic “Fashion Air Dynastar” styling as other Flint
products of the year, including a remarkable grille composed of 160 faceted
chrome squares.

The
platform is on a longer 127.5-inch-wheelbase chassis, for a total span from
nose-to-nose of over 227 inches. Distinctive to the three Limited body styles
were the “hash marks” along the rear fenders. The Limited was also the only
1958 Buick model that featured the distinctively beautiful, bright lower rear
quarter panels that blend impeccably into the massive rear bumper. Chrome bands
surround each wheel opening and the taillight towers are dramatic in
presentation and also unique

This car has mainly been stored
inside.  The body number is “4837X” and
the serial number is “8E[hidden information]”.

It has 77.015 miles and runs and
drives great.

Other features include a clock, beige
leather and cloth upholstery (code 763), Wonderbar radio, power windows, power
front seat, power steering, power brakes and it also had air conditioning.  The seats, carpet and door panels in the interior
are a little worn.  The dash is in great condition
as is the headliner and the upper chrome mouldings.

The exterior paint is weathered but
there are no major dents or rust.   There is a crack in the front windshield.  Most of the exterior stainless-steel trim is
in nice condition.  There is a small dent
on the upper left quarter panel moulding and minor dents on the wheel-well
mouldings.  The tail light bezels are a
little pitted and the right rear bumper extension has a little rust but the
front bumper and grille are in very nice condition. The undercarriage also has
a little surface rust.
