Quote from Original Literature

1958 Buick Sales Flyer
The 1958 Buick Super Riviera (Model 56R) bears a fresh new look of fashion from head to toe, bumper to bumper. It brings you a unique thrill of command in its price class with Buick's mighty B-12000 engine and a greatly advanced new Variable Pitch Dynaflow. The new Miracle Ride so renowned for its buoyant levelness and velvet cushioning that it is now setting a trend for the industry to follow. In every respect-size, power, ride, ease of handling-the B-58 Super is definitely the beacon-light buy of the king-sized cars.

1958 Buick Super Riviera Equipment

The Super series – presented here by the 1958 Buick Super Riviera – was the combination of the large Fisher body with lots of extra features for a resonable price. That made the Buick Super series one of the most popular car series of the 1950s.
