An official member of the 836 cars assembled during the last model year of the original Skylark, this investment grade Buick is one of the rarest and most desirable ’50s collector cars ever produced! The beneficiary of a thorough, frame-off restoration that was completed sometime around 2009, this killer drop-top is one of the coolest Buicks we’ve ever seen! The restorers began by stripping the car’s smooth, Harley Earl-designed body all the way to bare metal. When that heavy cleaning was complete, solid panels were assembled into a clean profile that presents largely blemish-free surfaces. After that thorough test fitting, a silky coat of correct Arctic White paint was capped with correct Black vinyl and teased to a glossy, show-stopping shine. And today, this Skylark’s prestigious appearance is a lust worthy representation of one of America’s most glorious eras of motoring. Lift the car’s ‘alligator hood’ and you’ll find a 322 cubic inch Fireball V8 that props a correct Roadmaster assembly stamp in front of a correct 1165165 casting number. Nicknamed the “Nail valve”, and eventually known as the “Nailhead”, this fully detailed mill employs greater lift and better duration to create a Kansas-flat power band. Behind that mill, a new-for-1953 Twin Turbine Dynaflow 2-speed twists power to a factory rear end. At the edges of that drivetrain, Dynaflow-mandated power drum brakes initiate quick, drama-free stops. Turns come courtesy of Dynaflow-mandated power steering. And everything rolls on familiar Kelsey-Hayes wires, which spin 7.60-15 BF Goodrich Silvertown whitewalls around “SKYLARK” branded center caps. As one of the most exclusive ’50s classics money can buy, this investment grade Skylark combines a fine restoration with an era-correct drivetrain and acute attention to authenticity.
