This highly optioned 1958 Buick Convertible is an awe inspiring piece of automotive art. The 1958 Buick was a low production, one year only, design. The drivability and comfort is second to none. Out on the open road the 364 cid engine has the power and the torque (380lb ft) to keep grabbing for more.
The well sorted power brakes & power steering make this car enjoyable in both city and open road settings.
This Buick is a joy to own and a joy to cruise.
