The 1958 model year is revered for its extravagant and oversized cars with lavish trim. Among them, the standout is the 1958 Buick Limited, which revived the prestigious Limited name associated with Buick’s grandest and most expensive models.
With its remarkable “Fashion Air Dynastar” styling, including a striking grille adorned with 160 chrome squares, the Limited commanded attention. It featured distinctive rear fender “hash marks” and a luxurious interior. Powered by a robust 300-horsepower V-8 engine and advanced two-speed Flight Pitch Dynaflow transmission, the Limited delivered impressive performance.
Despite an unexpected recession affecting the automotive industry, the Limited endured as one of the rarest and sought-after Buick models. Only 839 Limited Convertibles were produced, making them highly coveted by collectors.
