For Sale: 1971 Buick Skylark in Lutz, Florida

Vehicle Description

A good Buick is premium, distinctive, powerful, and a great value. That's why this 1971 Buick Skylark Custom convertible is so appealing. It has a beautiful color combo, the best interior options (including cold-blowing A/C), and a proper V8 under the hood.


The Custom trim of the Skylark upholds the premium end of the model line, and this one does it quite nicely. You see it up front in the mirror-like shine of the bumper and headlight surrounds. The profile has a good panel fit and doors that close with confidence. And in the rear, few companies could integrate the chrome bumper into the sheet metal design better than Buick. The factory-correct Fire Red paint has a terrific gloss and shine. And when combined with the white convertible top, you have the all-American appeal of a Coca-Cola bottle. This red also gives it a bit of a sporting attitude, and that continues with details like the bright dual exhaust tips. And Buick's Mag-style Rallye wheel package is truly an iconic finishing touch. But more than just a great package, this one is desirable because it's rare. These premium Custom convertibles had a price that rivaled the GS models, and so less than 4,000 were produced in 1971.


If you like the way this one looks with the roof in place, then you'll love how the factory-correct pearl white interior gives you a similar color combo when you're open to the world. This has a highly original style that appears well-respected, right down to the working courtesy lights. There's seating for six total, so there's plenty of room for family and friends. And features like the retro-style AM/FM stereo and cold-blowing air conditioning are great to keep them all happy. But all you have to do is fold down the armrest on the front split-bench, and this Buick offers plenty of individual comfort. In fact, this is a very driver-oriented setup. The three-spoke Buick steering wheel gives you a nice view of the sporty round gauges, and they even cleanly installed a tach under the dash. Plus, this has a rare combo of power windows and a power convertible top. So you never have to leave the driver's seat to open this one up to the world!


The bright Dante Red of Buick's own engine block is something we all love to see when the hood is open at the car shows. And this one really looks fantastic with a very clean and correct presentation, right down to the factory air topper. The special Buick motors provide big torque from a small package and a unique sound that's music to a Buick lover's ears. Out on the road, this drop-top earns its easy cruising reputation with features like the three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, power brakes, front discs, and rear sway bar.


You get rarity, distinction, and vintage appeal - all in one very affordable package. So if you love a red drop-top that loves to cruise, you know you need this Skylark. Call today!!!
