Vehicle Description

Rare Find - With the recession that hit in 1958, every automaker saw a sharp decline in sales from the years prior. Buick went from selling over 700k cars in 1955 to only 244k in 1958! So finding anything from 1958 seems to be getting harder and harder as the years pass by, and finding one like this with all the history and in this condition makes it an even greater find! Born at the South Gate, CA plant, this 1958 Super Riviera 4dr hardtop was sold new in San Jose, CA in February, 1958 where it stayed with the original owner until she moved to WI in 1976. Standard equipment included the Variable Pitch Dynaflow transmission, power steering, padded upper dash, deluxe steering wheel, Foamtex seat cushions, full wheel covers, clock, trunk light, and license plate frames. Optional items checked off on the order form include heater/defroster, Sonomatic radio w/ manual antenna, Safety group F (back up lights, glare proof mirror, parking brake, padded lower dash, safety speed warning buzzer), windshield washer w/wide angle wipers, E-Z eye glass, power brakes, chrome door guards, dual exhaust, and autronic eye w/map light. Once in WI the original owner continued to enjoy this rolling artwork until she finally decided to trade it on a new car in 1982! An employee of the dealership, an avid collector, purchased it for his enjoyment and owned it until 2000, when he sold to the most recent owner, who maintained it nicely over the past 20 years. From what we can tell it has received a partial (or full) repaint at some point in the original color, and the third owner had the front seat reupholstered in 2004, along with new carpet and door panels. The rest of this car is all survivor. Runs and drives excellent! Recent service work includes all new wheel cylinders, oil change, front wheel bearings, water pump, and some much needed exercise. The greatest part of this car? Every single service record from 1958 to 1982, folded up neatly in the glove box when we found it. Additional receipts from the third owner for the interior work also included. If you are a fan of the late 50's GM cars, don't let this one get away! Reasonable offers encouraged, financing/shipping available, and we sell worldwide!
