Description

Lot #1241 - Buick Skylarks represent the last of the great hand finished cars from GM in the fifties. This is rare body #669 of only 836 units made. Standard Century convertibles were taken off the line and received the distinctive hand finished "Skylark" finned rear deck. Other custom features borrowed from Buick`s experimental car, "The Wildcat," included the removal of the "portholes," flat stainless sweep spear, full wheel cutouts with painted coves, full "Skylark only" leather, and Kelsey-Hayes wire wheels. Skylarks sold for more than a Cadillac. This beautiful California Skylark has benefited from a complete "body-off" restoration to a high quality professional standard in 1995. A pictorial documentation is included. Recently the car has benefitted from a cosmetic freshening done to the highest possible standard to allow the new owner the option of Concours showing and pleasure/tour driving without devaluation. Equipment includes Buick`s Fireball V8 engine, Twin Turbine Dynaflow, Power steering, power brakes, 4 way power seat, power top, windows and Telescopic antenna, Easy eye Glass, Selectronic radio, Weather-Warden heater/defroster, and Whitewall tires.
