Where is it?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know where this 1958 Buick is or the story behind it?   Lots of "Special" treatments to it.  Bucket seats, red plaid interior, red accents in the side moldings and the list goes on.... Interesting !

This photo shows a display of 1958 GM cars that received special attention from the "Damsels of Design".  

 

Here is the complete story.  The photo in the original post shows the Feminine Auto Show in GM's Styling Dome:

Thanks Centurion.  The photo I posted, I saw on Ebay.  I have seen this photo and others before but have always wondered what happened to the cars after the show?

Those seats in that Corvette remind me a little of the seats in my former 95 Riviera.  Comfy!

Thanks for that link!  Interesting to see all of the cubbyholes, drawers, pouches, pockets, and such in those cars!

Anyone notice the extra trim on the Limited?

 

Actually I did not till you pointed it out Adam. Good Eye.

 

With the length of the rear quarters that trim would certainly be some custom work.
