Footnotes

  • Introduced in the 1930s, Buick's straight-eights carried the company through to WW2 and indeed beyond, as its products of the immediate post-war years, like those of its major rivals, were revised 1942 models. The first significant styling changes arrived in 1949 and continued at regular intervals thereafter. For 1958 all Buicks were restyled, emerging somewhat bulkier than before while boasting four headlamps, additional chrome and more exaggerated tail fins. By this time the old inline engine had been replaced by a new eight of 'V' configuration.

    An example of Buick's magnificent, top-of-the range 'Limited' model, this 1958 sedan has the 364ci, 300bhp V8 engine and optional Dynaflow automatic transmission. The current vendor purchased the car privately in Uxbridge, Middlesex in 1980 and was told that it had been imported from Florida. A few years ago the engine was removed so that a piston could be replaced, and although it has since been reassembled and is believed complete, has not been reinstalled. We are advised that all detached trim items come with the car also. Sold strictly as viewed, this wonderful 'Classic American' is offered with old-style logbook, Swansea V5 registration document and a 1958 Buick Owner's Guide.

    No reserve.
