Quote from Original Literature

1958 Buick Sales Flyer
Sparkling new styling, spotlighted by a handsome new grille design unique in the automotive industry, enhances the 1958 Buick Century Convertible with the verve and dash of a sports car. The new Century, like all other cars in the Buick line, is equipped with dual headlights and a daring new fender and hood line that accentuates the new low silhouette . Buick's improved variable pitch Dynaflow transmission is standard on the Century. The revolutionary new flight pitch Dynaflow and the new miracle air ride are available as optional equipment. All 1958 Buicks, except the Special, are equipped with air -cooled aluminum brakes on the front wheels.
