  1. It is a "Special Car Order" SCO code. I wish i knew what the special order color was so I can repaint it back. The origal color was a bit darker and less green more grey appearing. Is there any way to document what the original color was? It was originally owned by a member of the Lammerts family like the fabulous Samoan Bronze 65 GS so I wonder if they ordered several in Cadillac colors?
  2. Here is my newly acquired 1971. Oklahoma City car since new. The 65 I bought several months ago. It is also a 1 owner local car with a 425 and SCO Paint.
  3. Mine looks darker and more grey than green in low light
  4. I too have an SCO 1965 Riviera. The original owner's daughter said its always been "greenish" but darker. It was repainted in the 80s or earlier. The jams and under the decklid look like a grey with green metal flake. I really want to find the original color. Mine was also sold at Lammerts in Niagra Falls like the SCO Samoan Bronze GS. This one went to Mr. Lammerts daughter in law in Oklahoma City.
  5. Lance, my interior is in pretty sad shape. The leather is still good but the cloth inserts, headliner and dash need help. I would love to see some photos of your interior to know exactly how mine should look. Was yours an air ride car?
  6. I feel very fortunate to have found my Limited. I have had a 58 olsmobile Ninety Eight Holiday Sedan for a while and recently aquired a 1958 Cadillac Fleetwood Sixty Special, both local one owner cars. My partner in crime and I laughed and said we needed a 58 Limited to round out the GM Chrome Trifecta of 1958. Knowing how rare and expensive Limiteds are, we didn't see it happening anytime in the near future. Imagine our surprise when she turned up on Craigslist 10 miles from home! The listing just said "1958 Buick Riviera Sedan." I have found 3 rusty areas, small spots in both rockers and 1 small spot in one of the rear wheel wells. The floors are fairly solid and the rear bumper appears very solid. Its a 1 family owned car sold new here in Oklahoma. She was parked outside in 1976 after a small front end collision that damaged the bumper. She is a very early car (Body 99) and was originally equipped with Air Suspension. She is black with silver and black interior. What interior does yours have?
  7. I know the feeling. There have been times when my 56 Caddy was the only car at the house I could get to start or drive. Have any pics of your 58 Limitted?
  8. The weather finally cleared up enough to get her moved to the shop. I've sold my 40 LaSalle and 54 Cadillac Sedan so she will have an indoor spot soon.
  9. In 1958 Cadillac offered a standard deck and an extended deck in the de Ville and 62 Series. The extended deck cars outsold the std or short deck models. The extended deck was the same length as a Fleetwood Sixty Special.
  10. We got her moved just before the snow and ice storm hit. She got her first bath in 37 years. I think the paint might even polish up pretty well too! Most people dont travel with polishing compond but we do! Helped kill time waiting for the trailer.
  11. Well, we got her dug out from her 37 year resting spot and didn't even hit and trees or the 64 Cadillac parked snugly next to her. I found one of the missing Limited scripts but none of the diagonal hash marks as of yet. The only rust I've found has been a smal patch in the right rear wheel well and under the moulding on teh right rocker panel. Im sure we will find more when we peel the old carpet out. She already looks liek a different car.
  12. What options were available on a Limited besides airconditioning? I thought everything was standard. this car does not have wonderbar radio, auto dimming or air suspension. Mine appears to have never had air suspension but does have a/c, wonderbar, dimming and power antenna. http://ps.getauto.com/dealer/details/158503/000000008E1052188/
  13. Does anyone know if there is a registry of surviving 58 Limiteds?
  14. The limited is a little rougher than I would have liked (aren't they all?), but it is a local car with all history and I've certainly bought worse! We will pick her up this weekend or early next week. It has the black cloth/silver leather interior. The drivers seat is worn out and everyhting has a layer of Oklahoma red dirt. In this family since new, she was parked in 1976. i think a good bath and some aired up tires will make it look like a different car. The poor girl does need some dental work however.
  15. Thank you for the welcomes. It has A/C, Auto Dimming and of course power seat and windows but shows no evidence of ever having air suspension. My Oldsmobile is an Air Ride car, however. It was replaced by the dealer around 1960 but some of the components are still there. This Limited is body number 99. I wonder if any earlier cars are out there? Here are Blanche (58 Olds) and Bertha (58 Caddy).
  16. Here's a Fall/Winter scene from last week
  17. Hello everyone. My name is Jim Jordan. Ive always said I needed a 58 Limited to go with my 58 Fleetwood and 58 Ninety Eight. never thought that would happen until one popped up on Craigslist less that 15 miles from me in Oklahoma City. I am now the proud owner of this 2 owner Black sedan that has been parked since 1976. It appears to have all options except air suspension. It will be a long slow process to get her back on the road but Im glad we were able to save her.
  18. This project car has been parked since 1952. It is rough but complete. The floors are rusty but frame is solid. I believe it to have been a TX and OK car. One of 125 built, this car was originally finished in Antoinette Blue with Red Leather. It has optional radio, fresh air heater with under seat units and is equipped with very rare dual sidemount spares. The car appears complete less the radiator. Even the detachable "center window pillars are there! there are also many duplicate parts such as bumpers and transmission/driveline. Located in Oklahoma City, OK. Email for more detailed photos.

  19. I'm told it was in the South also (Kentucky or Louisiana). Was wondering if the west coast sighting wasn't in fact, the recently restored 49 Coupe De Ville show car. The 49 spent time in San Diego
  20. Thanks guys. Now what are the y worth and where is the best place to sell them. I'm at a complete loss on this stuff.
  21. I purchased a 1940 LaSalle Series 50 Convertible Sedan at an estate auction last weekend and these fenders were piled in the car with the rest of the LaSalle Items. I am trying to figure out what the are from and how to sell them. So far, the consensus among my friends and i is 1935 ish Auburn. Any guidance is appreciated. Thanks in advance, Jim
  22. If you can email me the registration info you have I might be able to get some more info. I am in Oklahoma City where all past registrations are kept on microfilm. Allante93jj@aol.com
