1958 BUICK ¡§WELLS FARGO¡¨-
Built Especially for Dale Robertson.
The Buick Division of General Motors itself produced a factory custom edition which was designed exclusively for western television star Dale Robertson. The 1958 Buick Limited convertible, featuring built in western holsters and a carbine rack, was called the Wells Fargo.
A main feature of the special Buick was its fancy interior with its bucket seats, natural calfskin carpeting and a console fitted with a pair of lever-action carbines.
Buick stylists completely reworked the exterior and interior of the show limited. Authentic western
glamour was added with the gun racks, leather work and solid walnut paneling, while the sleek lines of modern automotive design were retained with
Lucite paint, sparking chrome and such touches as flip-up interior door handles.
Interior styling was in the western motif, with the traditional flowing floral patterns dominating the hand-tooled leather inserts on the inner door panels and seats. Upholstery was in natural Danish calf. The floor was carpeted in natural Jersey hide, which was used also on the lower areas of the door.
