In 1958 Buick reintroduced one of their grandest named in the top-of-the-line LImited. It rode on a large 127.5-inch wheelbase and was given generous amounts of chrome, plus no less than 12 vertical louvers in the rear quarters. The front grille had 160 chrome square insets and twin chromium bullets flanked by turn signal lights that are housed in their own streamlined nacelles. The Buick name is spelled out in separate die cast letters and twin 'V' styled gun sight ornaments ride on each front fender. Also in the front are Buick's new-for-1958 quad headlamp set up. At the rear of the nearly 19-foot long body are twin jet-like fins that carry a sharp angle into tail lamps that are louvered. There is a large rear bumpers that runs all the way from the rear wheel arches and is smothered in chrome. The Limited name appears at the front of the rear quarter panel. The interior futuristic gauges, jet-like pods, and chrome.

This particular example is finished in Seminole Red with a matching red leather interior. It retains its AM radio and a clock above the glove box. It has GM's Autronic Eye that uses a light-sensing phototube to automatically switch the headlamps from high to low when an oncoming car approached. Power is supplied from Buick's 364 cubic-inch overhead valve V8 rated at 300 horsepower, mated to a two-speed Dynaflow automatic transmission.

Buick built just 839 examples of the Limited Convertibles in 1958.
