Classic Car Overview
Now for sale in our Houston showroom is this gorgeous 1968 Buick Skylark GS California. This is a true Skylark GS California, not a clone. However, it has been painted in the Skylark GSX motif. The black stripes have been masterfully painted on, and the entire yellow and black paint scheme has been clearcoated with numerous coats, leaving it glass-smooth. This 1968 Buick Skylark GS California underwent a rotisserie restoration at Diaz Classics in Corcoran, CA, which did the complete package. In addition to being a numbers-matching car, it also has all of its original body panels. A hood tach was added to enhance that muscle car look, as well. Pop the hood open, and youll find its original 350 CID V8, which is now topped by a FiTech Fuel Injection system, custom cast aluminum Buick valve covers and aluminum intake manifold. Backing the 350 is its original 2-speed Powerglide automatic, which was redone at the same time the engine was. The pulleys are all done in body color, and a big aluminum radiator with twin electric fans help keep the 350 running cool. A Davis Unified Ignition HEI distributor provides the spark delivery. Headers handle the exhaust scavenging, sucking those spent fossils out into a custom Pypes Performance dual exhaust system, and help give it both better breathing and providing a nice muscle car rumble out back. A SunPro 3 gauge cluster was installed in the dash to help monitor key engine functions, and it looks like it was made to be there. This 68 runs and drives like a true muscle car, and certainly better than it did when it was new. It has upgraded sway bars (both front and rear), and the unsprung weight has been reduced by adding custom rallye-styled aluminum wheels, which are wrapped in BF Goodrich gForce Sport Comp2 radials (245/45ZR-17 front, and 255/45-ZR17 out back). It is raw, powerful, and sounds great. The interior of this Skylark GS California is no different than the rest of the car, in that it is super clean, and sports some nice modern upgrades. The seats are tastefully done in cloth and vinyl, with custom GS embroidery on the front buckets. The restoration of this car was very well done, and provides the essence of what muscle cars are. When youre cruising in this bad boy you will not go unnoticed!
