Classic Car Overview

1965 Buick Skylark Convertible Known for its prolonged singing while soaring, the European Skylark is oft seen hovering over large farmland expanses and open country. The Skylark line of automobile produced by Buick, from 1953 through 1998, has seen many variations and iterations of design and performance. Soaring over roads, this Skylark has sung its tune for a few generations, some of the hippest during the 1960s. This 1965 convertible example of the Buick Skylark provides the viewer of it with a combination of 1960s cool, and early muscle cars disguised as family sedans. One of only 598 produced 4 speed manual convertibles, not counting the ones that are no longer with us it is definitely lower! This year Skylark, sported some fab seats with tuck and roll and plenty of buttons, a long trunk deck with a bar of rear taillights stretching from rear quarter to rear quarter A pointed nose raked forward and overall thinner and wider car, gave the impression of speed and style. Exterior A white repaint, covering original blue, covers the exterior surfaces. Virtually dent and ding free, the exterior presents beautifully. Some slight areas of orange peel paint, a few touched up chips and at the lower doors just a smidgeon of rust bubble is noted. The iconic Buick trio of front quarter venting are present on the car and are covered in chrome. Grille, dual headlights and surrounds are in good condition with mirror-like finishes and a Grand Sport front badge. A black canvas top is clean with no tears or rips, and the rear window is scratch and sun fog free, can be electrically raised and lowered. 5 spoke rally steel wheels chromed, with Buick center logo hubs, are wrapped in thin redline tires. A rocker trim runs the length of the lower part of this car and shows in good condition as well. Front and rear bumpers are blemish free. Interior Newly minted in 2007, the interior vinyl is in excellent condition. Beautiful white vertical ribbing is covering the 2 bucket seats in front, and bench seating in back. Also, plenty of buttons lined up on the backs as well as some side chrome trim and the seats are just fab! Door panels show white vinyl trimming, horizontal ribbing, and more buttons, and have plenty of chrome accenting attached. A panel of black carpet is on the bottom. A 4-speed manual Hurst floor shifter, and an amp gauge is within a small center console which starts at the front of the buckets and rises to the dash. Dash chrome and black trim is in good condition with just slight tarnish and minor scratching; however all gauges and knobs are clear and working. The upper padded dash is crack free and in black. Black carpet floods the floors and Buick 3 shield badges are on rubber floor mats. Drivetrain A 401ci Nailhead Wildcat V8, fully restored in aqua paint is now within the clean and restored engine bay. It is not original to this car however is all buttoned up for the restoration. This is attached to a 4-speed manual transmission, which is original to this car. The 445 on the air cleaner denotes torque not horsepower or displacement. Undercarriage Nice and clean with no rust, very structurally sound and lots of black undercoating. Floorpans and rockers are smooth, rust free and straight. Rear drum brakes are seen and for the front, new updated to disc brakes. A stainless-steel X pipe dual exhaust snakes its way rearward and is looking nice and polished. A like new fuel tank hangs off the back securely, and no runs drips or errors are to be seen throughout. Drive-Ability A quick starter, and effortless drive for the test area. Smooth acceleration, and a smooth ride too all in comfortable confines of the convertible top. I imagine dad behind the wheel, flat top cut, Wayfarers, white shirt and thin necktie, with mom next to him with her Oliver Goldsmith Manhattans, silk bandanna covering her low beehive, and matching paisley dress, rolling down the highway with top down smiling and just enjoying life. This convertible is drive away condition, can be you, 55 years later with that same smile, and sense of satisfaction in your 1965 Buick Skylark Convertible...goose it!
