Vehicle Description

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.
