Take a look at this mostly original and tastefully restored 1965 Buick Skylark convertible. The Buick has its original 300ci 310 Wildcat V8 engine with original rebuilt 2 barrel carburetor and backed up by the original and rebuilt Super Turbine 300 3 speed automatic transmission. Under the hood there is a new battery, new radiator, new alternator, power steering and two new horns. The completely original body has been repainted in its factory Astro Blue with dark blue manual convertible top and new convertible boot to match. The exterior is accented by the polished trim, full bar rear taillights and re-chromed front and rear bumpers. On the inside the Buick has been treated to new vinyl door panels, new carpet and new bench seats in the front and rear. The interior also consists of its original dash pad, original radio, original steering wheel as well as a restored speedometer, fuel gauge, oil pressure gauge, temperature gauge and generator light in the dash. This Skylark rides on 14 inch thin white wall Kuhmo tires with Buick spinner style wheel covers. Put the top down in this classic Buick boulevard cruiser or just enjoy a smooth and comfortable convertible ride anywhere you go!

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.

Thirty years ago in October, I went to buy a 1965 Buick Skylark hardtop, found out it was a four-door and decided to pass.
The first picture is why. The second picture is when. The third picture is now. Remembering Dad (and having a mid-life crisis.)
