White letter tires The Sun Coupe package itself was available only
on the Skylark 350 Sport Coupe. Produced only for a single model
year,it is a very rare item indeed. Estimated only 1600-1800 were
made. As mentioned, the sunroof is of the sliding, folding,
accordion-like vinyl type--more often recognized on the Volkswagen
Beetle/Bus. Surrounded by a color-matching custom vinyl top, the
opening measures 42 x 50 inches when retracted. Unlike the
electrically operated steel sunroof found on the Riviera and
Electra 225 Sport coupe, this sunroof is operated manually. A
chrome-plated combination handle/latch is located in the center of
the forward edge--a twist and pull gets the job done swiftly, a lot
faster than a convertible when rain threatens. You don't have to
pull off the road and stop to do it, either. Your eyes will
certainly notice more about the Sun Coupe than just its top.
Gold-colored "Sun Coupe" script is positioned on the C-pillars. The
boxed "350" emblem underneath accompanies the Skylark badge at the
aft end of each rear quarter panel. Even more interesting is the
aforementioned vinyl roof: Another option, it covers only 90
percent of the car, running from the windshield to the vicinity of
the C-pillar. The paint stripe seen on this Sun Coupe was also an
option, starting at the base of the A-pillar, running towards the
rear along the top of each door, up the leading edge of the
C-pillar and along the back edge of the vinyl top. The other
options on this car, power steering, air conditioning, dual outside
color keyed sport mirrors with drivers side remote, bucket seats,
storage console and chrome Buick Road wheels. This car also has an
aftermarket radio. This is a very nice driver car ready for fun in
the sun and cruising!
