Classic Car Overview

This 1971 Buick Skylark has a terrific vintage style with the cool two-tone, sleek hardtop profile, upgraded overdrive transmission, and an impressive 455 V8. So at a price like this, youre looking at quite a tempting big power cruiser. The best Buicks of the 70s were both premium and powerful, and this one delivers it all in the first impression. It has a muscle car-like hardtop profile similar to its Chevelle sibling. But theres an extra hint of sophistication with the sharply pointed front end and a hint of an extended rear (it gives a bird-like beak and wingtips to this Skylark.) You see it well on this example because the panels look particularly nice. Its finished in a shade of green that is pure 1970s cool, and the white roof looks like vinyl from a distance, but its just a well-done durable paint separated by trim. Form-fitting chrome bumpers, correct/classic badging, and classic Buick Rallye wheels complete this vintage and attractive total package. The green interior looks quite original, and it has the kind of earth-tone you love on a 70s machine. Buicks touch of premium is seen again in details like the pattern on the seats cloth insert coordinates with the door panels. And theres wood-like trim on the dash, doors, and steering wheel. This was an intermediate car in the 70s, but by todays standards, that means plenty of room for family and friends. You can even keep them all happy with the AM/FM radio. But even if its just you going solo, this Buick will keep you smiling. The dual-spoke steering wheel gives you a view of the full round gauge pack with large speedo and tach. Plus, the auxiliary gauge under the dash and B&M lock-up converter controller are an indicator that youll love whats under the hood. This may look like a classic/premium Skylark, but under the hood lurks the heart of a GS 455-style beast. The 455 cubic-inch V8 has the tidy kind of style that will make you want to show this off everywhere. The bright red block, matching Buick valve covers, and clean overall look shows there was a solid investment. In fact, we have thousands $$$$ in receipts documenting this motors rebuild. It now includes .030 bored over, Speed Pro forged pistons, Moly rings, ported heads, an Edelbrock intake, a four-barrel carburetor, headers, and more (call for the full detailed list.) Its also supported by the right pieces, like a full MSD ignition package and an aluminum radiator. The transmission is now an upgraded four-speed automatic that you control the mild or wild with the lock-up converter. Plus, you have power steering, power brakes, front discs, a rear sway bar, and a Positraction rear end for all-around good driving. The sale comes complete with build receipts and maintenance records. If you like your classic coupe to be both distinctive and powerful, dont let this custom Skylark slip away. Call today!!!
