The beautiful Buick Skylark Custom that you see here began life at the Fremont, CA plant and was painted Fire Red (75) with a Pearl White (155) interior. Additional options include power steering, power brakes, power windows, power top, tilt wheel and air-conditioning. The car was sold new in California and remained there with its original owner until 2011 when it was sold to a collector who restored it to GS Stage 1 Specification, an upgrade from its original specification. According to historians, only 81 convertibles left the factory with the Stage 1 engine option, so it is understandable that the unique configuration is often duplicated during the restoration of these cars. This particular restoration was of a rust-free car that received a 455 cubic inch big block engine built to Stage 1 specs. Additionally it received a 4L80 overdrive transmission, 12-bolt 3.42 posi-traction rear end and a custom stainless steel exhaust. All power options that were previously on this car were retained and are in working order today. The beautiful red paint is a PPG mixture that has been covered with a clear coat. The interior pieces were supplied by Legendary and a black Haartz cloth top was installed. All chrome was re-plated while the stainless was polished. Merging the power with the pavement are eight inch wide wheels from Wheel Vintique that are wrapped in appropriate BF Goodrich rubber. This is a great running and driving car that is very comfortable and reliable when you want it to be and a beast when you don't. It is offered at a fraction of the cost it would take to duplicate.
