Gateway Classic Cars of Orlando is proud to offer this beautiful
and very rare 1953 Buick Skylark Convertible. The Skylark was
brand-new in 1953; its name was chosen to celebrate Buick's 50th
anniversary. This stunning automobile was based on Buick's
experimental sports car, the XP-300, which created a huge amount of
excitement in 1952. The 1953 Skylark was one of the most expensive
cars in Buick's lineup and today is a bona fide collector's item.
Built only as a convertible and based on the Roadmaster drivetrain,
these were the cars of the stars. The sole engine for the Skylark
was an all-new "Fireball" 322 CID V8 with 188 horsepower. New for
1953, too, was the use of the new 12-volt electrical system. The
only transmission used in the Skylark was a Twin Turbine Dynaflow,
which was an updated version of the original, introduced in 1948.
The Twin Turbine debuted in 1953 and used a four-element torque
converter featuring two turbines interconnected through a planetary
gear set. This setup gave a more positive connection between the
engine and the driveshaft. Options on this amazing 1953 Buick
Skylark Convertible include Power steering, power brakes, leather
interior, AM Radio, and Wire Wheel with wide whitewall tires. If
you want a show-stopping classic, then call today! This is the one
you want to own. Call today it won't last long. This 1953 Buick
Skylark Convertible is offered for sale by our Orlando Showroom and
