I found this car on ebay.com. The previous owner is from North Carolina, but had stored the car in Pennsylvania for about 8 months. He had it since 1995 and has restored the mechanics, the electronics, and has had the car re-upholstered. The only thing left to do is a new paint job.
The car was originally from Odessa, Texas (i.e.- rust free) and has only been out of West Texas since 1995. I keep it in a garage to minimize exposure to moisture - a real problem here in Southeast Texas.
The Limited was the top of the line Buick in 1958 and is also the rarest - only 1,026 two door hardtops were produced. This car has every option that was available: Power windows, brakes, steering, antenna, and front seat; Wonderbar radio (signal seeking radio); autronic eye (automatic headlight dimmer); factory air conditioning; and it originally had "Air-Poise" suspension. The air suspension has been changed to regular springs and shock absorbers because there were many problems with the Air Poise design which finally prompted a factory recall in 1959. The air tank and operating lever are still present. I have a parts car with many good parts if I need them.
I can't believe how much interest in Buick Limiteds has exploded over the last three years! I guess everyone is getting tired of seeing '57 Chevys and are looking for something different (don't get me wrong, I love '57 Chevrolets, I think they are one of the prettiest cars from the '50s, but everyone has one. I go to shows and see 20 or more lined up, but you hardly see a Buick Limited.) Most '58 Limiteds are being purchased by European buyers, and most seem to be going to Sweden. When I bought my car, the seller barely made his reserve on it. If it was listed now I think it would sell for at least 75% more than I paid and I haven't done any restoration work to the paint or chrome yet. I do not plan to sell the car any time soon (or ever).
