To Be OFFERED AT AUCTION WITHOUT RESERVE at RM Sothebys Amelia Island event, 8 - 9 March 2019. Estimate:$150,000 - $175,000 Stunning Malibu Blue over blue leatherNumber 245 of just 836 Skylarks built for 1954AACA Bomgardner Award/National First Prize in 2009The limited-production Skylark made its second and final appearance for 1954 having been introduced one year earlier at the GM Motorama to celebrate Buick s 50th anniversary and the introduction of its new V-8 engine. The 322-cu. in. V-8 with a four-barrel carburetor was upgraded to 200 hp for 1954, and styling was updated to coincide with the rest of the Buick lineup. Like the original, the 1954 model boasted the trademark cutout wheel wells and side spear trim, setting it apart from lesser Buick models. Skylarks featured unique chromed rear tailfins that housed the taillights, a styling feature lifted from the Wildcat show car. For 1954, the Skylark shared its chassis with the Century rather than that of the Roadmaster. This reduced the wheelbase 3.5 in. to 122 and the overall length by 5.3 in. The resulting weight savings was surprisingly just 55 lbs. In addition to the big V-8, Dynaflow automatic transmission was standard, as was a power-operated top, power radio antenna, power windows, power steering, and power brakes. The unique wrap-around front windshield used for the first time on the 1953 Skylark reappeared on all Buicks for 1954. Just 836 were produced for 1954, making them among the most prized Buicks among today s collectors. The trim tag denotes that this Skylark is restored as-built in stunning Malibu Blue (11) over blue leather (67) and is a Model 4667SX, the special Skylark Convertible. This car is no. 246 of the 836 produced. It was restored to perfection by its previous owner prior to being purchased by the consignor in 2011. During his ownership, the car has been stored in a climate-controlled facility and has never participated in shows or concours. It has never been driven on public roads but has been exercised and run regularly at his home. According to the consignor, the car remains in exceptional condition as when it was acquired eight years ago.Following restoration, the Skylark received an AACA First Junior in 2009. That same year, it was the honored recipient of an AACA 1st Place National Award the Bomgardner Award acknowledging the outstanding restoration of a post-1942 vehicle at the Hershey Fall Meet.To view this car and others currently consigned to this auction, please visit the RM website at rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/am19.
