Seller's Description:

1958 Buick Special. The king of chrome!  The 58 Buick had more chrome than any other car in history. One of a kind!  Best styling of 1958.
Beautiful car. All original. One repaint to original color. No rust. Looks really great! Just a few minor scratches here and there from regular wear. Floors are solid.

Runs and drives well. Original 364 Nailhead engine runs quietly and smoothly.
Ultra rare manual transmission. (3 on the tree).  Less than 3% of 58 Buicks came with this. Very few still exist.

40K on odometer. Assumed to be original. Motor rebuilt and clutch replaced many years ago. Driven little since. Newer exhaust. Expensive wide white wall tires excellent.

Interior is good except drivers seat back will need redone as it is torn at the seem. I have a blanket over it for now. Carpet, headliner, door panels all look good. Back seat still has original plastic protector on it.

Chrome is generally in good condition. A few very minor dents, dings. Some pitting in a few places. No cracks in glass and all windows work properly.
I can't think of anything that needs attention on the car to be driven regularly. It is turn-key ready to go!  Head turner! Great cruiser! You will be the talk of the town in this car!

No 3rd party calls. I don't need help selling it. Partial trades may be considered, but not preferred. No lowball offers. Out of state or international buyers welcome.  I have contacts with a good domestic shipping company.

Only listed 2 years ago :)

Thankfully, the phone number is listed from the ad.

We can call, if interested, to see if the car is still available.


I once called about a 1985 Riviera from 5 years previous.

I had printed out and saved the computer listing.

The car was still available, the price was down, and I bought it!
