1964 Buick Skylark Convertible Beginning with the 1964 model year, the dressed-up compact Skylark trim level had enough sales to merit its own separate line. Along with the lower-priced Special from which it was derived, the model would move to a new 115 in (2,921 mm) wheelbase intermediate-size chassis shared with the Oldsmobile F-85, Pontiac Tempest, and new Chevrolet Chevelle. Both Buicks had a length of 203.5 in (5,169 mm). The basic V8 option was a 300-cubic-inch, with cast-iron-block, aluminum-heads, and a Rochester 2-barrel carburetor that generated 210 hp (160 kW) at 4600 rpm. OUR VEHICLE All-vinyl SADDLEl bucket seats on the convertible . Buick's traditional VentiPorts were integrated into the front half rub strip that runs the entire length of the vehicle, with later versions appearing vertically stacked as on the Buick Wildcat. The 1964 Buick Skylark Convertible in Surf Green, is a good driver condition, nice interior. 300-V8, Automatic, PS, Power top. Runs and drives well, top has no rips ,tears or leaks. Our car is in incredible dry condition on the undercarriage, trunk, and engine bay. A very good driver indeed with very respectable straight body panels, paint, stainless, and chrome. interior is in beautiful shape considering the age and wear. There has been some repair work over the years to rear wheel wells and rear quarter bottoms. Otherwise there is no clear evidence of body panels being patched nor replaced. Good honest car.
