1965 Buick Skylark Coupe
Monee, IL 60449
From around 1956 until the mid 1980s, Dodge, Plymouth and even Chrysler squads were the most ubiquitous police cars in North America. In fact, the biggest department, the NYPD, used Plymouth and Dodge squads almost exclusively until the rear-drive M body car was finally axed in 1989.
The no-frills Savoy two-door sedan was home to another engine of considerable repute, the infamous 413 Max Wedge, a Super Stock monster block Chrysler introduced in the spring of 1962.
Classic Car Overview
This car has been in the family since it was new. My grandparents ordered this car in 1964 and took delivery of it on January 8th 1965. For nine years it was garage kept. My grandfather was a retired Chicago fireman so the car was kept spotless. In 1974 my grandparents decided to give me the car for my high school graduation. The Buick had 34,149 on it. The car was all original except for the two front tires. Through the years I bought other cars and drove them, just to keep “my baby” in the best shape I could. This car has been taken care of since day one, as a result, I have an unrestored original. Wear and tear items have been replaced. The outside and interior are original.
