Description
322cid/188hp Fireball V8 engine with 3-speed Dynaflow automatic transmission, 4-wheel power assisted drum brakes, power windows, power top and power steering. 1 of 1690 produced. This white Buick Skylark had a restoration about 10 years ago and is a matching numbers car. Solid and rust-free. Presented with a new frame-on body repaint in 2008 with red and white leather interior and accented by a new black convertible top. Chrome and stainless steel bright work was also refurbished at that time and is in great shape along with the stunning Kelsey-Hayes wire wheels and spinners. The eye catching red and white leather interior was restored with all upholstery components in good condition. The Skylark displays a correctly restored and refinished steering wheel along with new, correct and properly fitted red carpeting. The trunk area is equally presentable, fitted with correct style trunk material with sides trimmed to match. The underside of the trunk lid has been refinished in body color white. A wide white wall spare tire, mounted on an original chrome Kelsey-Hayes 40-spoke wire wheel, is located and secured in the proper location. The extensively detailed engine compartment reveals the 322cid overhead valve Nailhead V8 engine. Under side of the hood, firewall and fenders are finished in white. The under carriage has a nice appearance, with the floorboards refinished, along with the frame and driveline components.
