Smartin's Next Flip - 1958 Limited in Laurel Mist


Recommended Posts

It looks like someone jumped it playing Dukes of Hazzard and that’s where it landed.

 

Boy those are long cars…

Certainly don't see many Limited coupes...

I agree.  1958 Limited convertibles were seen as more

"glamorous" and quite a few have been restored.  It's not

unusual to see a Limited convertible;  I'd rather see the

2-door hardtop, which is like sighting a rare bird.

It comes down to price for me and this guys language indicates he wants max dollar.  OK.  Someone go pay it.  
 

What bothers me is it’s present condition.  It was dumped there - years ago. And left to rot.  Now this seller knows what it is and instead of vetting potential buyers who are motivated to undergo the $150,000 restoration- he wants $7,000 or $10,000 or whatever.   
 

We ultimately don’t know the solidity of the body, interior and completeness of the engine bay- but to me it’s a max $4,000 car.  Max.  Just my opinion but there is a reason this super rare Buick halo car sits in the mud unrestored.

A car sitting on its frame in Brainerd Minnesota is not a happy place to be. Given that the dash is rusty,  I would expect the frame and floor boards to be paper thin.

Price now. $5,500.  

Still way too high for the condition and the unknowns. Probably a low-mileage car, given the lack of wear on driver's seat upholstery, but I'll bet the front suspension is badly rusted and the oil pan may have holes rusted through.
