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.
