This is a stock 1972 Buick Skylark convertible in desert yellow with a white top and sandalwood interior making it an eye-catching classic beauty. The power convertible top is new including new hydraulics and new motor and is in excellent condition with a glass rear window. The Skylark sandalwood color interior seats and black carpet were both replaced about 10 years ago and are like new. The car was recently painted desert yellow and is stunning. The car is free of dents and rust. It has been garaged and kept out of the elements. It has had only two owners, the original buyer and me. I have owned this vehicle for 20+ years. It is a 350-2 V8 engine. The engine and transmission were rebuilt 20 years ago and only have about 5,000 miles on them as the car has only been driven for pleasure on sunny days. The automatic transmission shifts like new. It has power steering and power brakes. It has five rally wheels. This car is very reliable and runs excellent. It has been meticulously maintained. The air conditioning works well and will deliver cold air. The following work has been completed: a complete tune-up, all new brakes and wheel cylinders installed, four new Cooper Cobra Radial GT tires installed and alignment done, newly re-chromed bumpers, a new battery and recent oil change. The following three items have been replaced and the original items have been kept and will be included with the purchase of this Skylark. A newer radio has been installed. The original radio works. The clock has been replaced with tach. The original clock works and was converted to a quartz movement. The radiator has been replaced with a heavy duty aluminum radiator. The old radiator which has a small leak is an easy re-core if new owner wants to replace the heavy duty aluminum radiator with the original radiator. The front seal of the transmission has a leak. It leaks about one and a half quarts a year. I have all of the parts for the seat belts which need to be installed. The seat belt parts will be provided with the purchase. If you want a good-looking, reliable, everyday classic cruising automobile with power that you can drive anywhere this is your car.
Buick launched its compact Special sedan for the 1961 model year, mid-way through the selling season, it added a sport coupe called the Skylark, a name last used by the GM division in 1954.
My Dad and I bought this in 1984.
In addition to Cadillac and Oldsmobile, Buick celebrated its golden anniversary in 1953 with a special edition convertible.
Created to celebrate Buick’s 50th anniversary, the Skylark joined the Oldsmobile 98 Fiesta and Cadillac Series 62 Eldorado as the top-of-the-line, limited-production specialty convertibles.

Priced at $11,800 or best offer, the Pick of the Day is a 1963 Buick Skylark that might be a nice starter car for someone looking to get into the classic car hobby.
Thirty years ago in October, I went to buy a 1965 Buick Skylark hardtop, found out it was a four-door and decided to pass.
The first picture is why. The second picture is when. The third picture is now. Remembering Dad (and having a mid-life crisis.)
