1953 Buick Skylark -- description

Owned for over 30 years by the same family this stately drop-top is fresh out of an extensive 5-year restoration that ensured a 100% factory-accurate appearance. The restorers began by thoroughly stripping the car's curvaceous mostly handmade body. When that heavy cleaning was complete all those Harley Earl-designed panels were assembled into a correct profile that presents largely blemish-free surfaces. After that thorough test fitting a correct coat of Mandarin Red paint was teased to a gloss...y 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 which wears a correct "V2248507" assembly stamp and twists a stout 188 horsepower into 300 ft./lb. of low-end torque. Behind that mill a new-for-1953 Twin Turbine Dynaflow which wears a correct "J" assembly stamp twists power to a 10-bolt rear end. At the edges of that drivetrain power-assisted drums initiate quick drama-free stops. Turns come courtesy of factory power steering. And everything rolls on restored wire wheels which spin 7.60-15 Coker Classic whitewalls around white inner fenders. An excellent mix of new world style and old world luxury this Skylark's correct interior is the perfect place to parade down Main Street. The car's plush benches are stuffed with thick padding covered in pleated leather and trimmed in era-correct hardware. In front of those seats a Mandarin Red dash hangs a correct Selectronic radio a classy clock and chrome-trimmed gauges behind a textured instrument panel. And in front of the driver an intricate color-keyed steering wheel spins a full horn ring around a customizable centerpiece. Combining a thorough restoration with acute detailing this investment grade Skylark is one of the best classics money can buy! Call click or visit for more information.
