Super rare 1958 Buick Limited Riviera Coupe unfinished project
Top of the line Buick for 58
Only 1026 built,
Hard to find model, rarely for sale, a blue chip investment
Not to be confused with a Special or Super the Limited has its own unique body and trim


Car came to England in 1995 and has never been on the road here.
It was repainted in the factory colour of Reef Coral around 15-20 years ago,
The engine and transmission were checked over and cleaned and painted,
The steering, brakes and suspension were gone through and cleaned and painted
The underside of the car was cleaned off and rust protected and painted
The car was partially reassembled then put back into storage and has sat ever since

The car needs finishing but is 99% all there,
The body is very straight and rust free, some minor panel alignment maybe but overall excellent
The paint is mostly good bar a few chips and storage marks, i have a little of the paint left for touch ups,
Glass all good, interior is all there and usable but needs some refitting
Chrome and stainless is mostly good with a few areas needing redoing

I have fitted a new correct carb and starter solenoid, bought a new correct long battery(not shown in the pics), new AC plugs and leads,
the car now starts on the original foot starter and runs well
The car 'yard drives' but wants going over as it was reassembled some time ago, the engine wants fine tuning, the brake vacum tank is missing, the gear shift collar is damaged but i have sourced another.
There may be some other jobs to do as you'd expect on a car thats been laid up.

Trim tag decodes car as Reef Coral and White, AC and Air Ride suspension
The AC stuff is mostly all still with the car, like most the suspension is now on springs
I have original handbooks and shop manuals etc for the car
The car is now UK registered with V5 in my name, part of my own collection, never before offered for sale on the open market

Buick Limiteds rarely come up for sale in the USA let alone Europe, this is a £50k plus car done, i only know of one other Limited coupe in the UK

I'm not totally sure i want to sell this car, it was destined to be a keeper but i have lost some of my storage, i dont need to sell it but it's just sitting and deserves to be finished and back on the road, its a project but a fairly easy one , you cant drive it home it needs to be collected/trailered, i know what it is and whats its worth so no timewasters please, i have lots of photos and video for genuinely interested parties.

Email for more detailed photos , search Mister Motorama on Youtube for videos

Viewing by appointment
The car is currently in a secure storage facility in the Oxfordshire/Bucks area,
i can arrange for it to stay there until the lockdown passes for a reasonable fee if required.
I can also help arrange transport if required

Offered at just £29,995
