1972 Buick Skylark

1972 Buick Skylark with a Hi-Compression Buick 350-4 I've had this car since October 8th 2010, I'm a senior in High School and it is my first car, my dad payed for half of it and I payed for the other half. I pay for the performance goodies that go into it and the occasional parts that break too. I love driving this old monster even though premium gas prices are outrageous but the rumble and roar of that massive V8 are well worth it. I take pride in this car and my dad and I do most of the work on it ourselves, it's somewhat of a father-son project. We've done nothing but make this car a heck of a lot better than it was when we got it. In the great words of GS Club of America, going fast with class, that's what these Buicks do. Detials: Stock HP: 175hp (for 1972 Buick 350-4 8.5:1 compression) Rear-wheel HP: 226hp @ 4326 RPM (should be a little higher with the Hyfire and Mallory coil) Rear-wheel Tourqe: 307.8 lb-ft @ 3372 RPM (should also be a little higher) Net HP: approx. 260hp Compression: 9.5:1 (not sure, but definitely higher than stock because without prem fuel I get spark knock with the correct fuel to air mixture) Rear-end gears: 2.73:1 Open Differential (plan on getting a Limited Slip one) Transmission: turbohydramatic 350 (with a shift kit for fun :D)

Johnnylark's 1972 Buick 455 SKYLARK is a TORQUE-MONSTER!!! 7-3-2016
Johnnylark is THE-MAN. The TA Performance camshaft he has is the one a step down from my TA290-08H ... and it sound DEVASTATING. Ever since my Holley 850 and engine's TOTAL timing was "tampered with," my 455 does not sound like Johnny's (as they did sound identical since day-1) anymore. Tyrone and my timing lights do NOT read TOTAL timing, that why my motor is currently experiencing "extreme detonation/pinging above 3000-rpm with an extreme loss in POWER. Tyrone is getting his brother's timing light that reads TOTAL timing this coming week. Then, my total timing will be set 33-34 degrees total. The video prior to this one is FIRE 👍👍💪💪💯💯💯💯 ... really shows the TORQUE of Johnny's 455 Buick ... but needs editing before I can upload it. No lie ... his Buick 455 "PULLS LIKE A DAMN FREIGHT TRAIN ... in ANY GEAR!!!"





1972 Buick Skylark
http://www.barnfineclassics.com/inventory/1972-buick-skylark Here's an amazing survivor Skylark! It has a great running original 350ci V8 and turbo 350 automatic transmission, power steering, power disc brakes, factory air conditioning, and upgraded dual Flowmaster Exhaust! Everything under the hood is stock! It does have a new battery and new points though! The interior is all original except the carpet has been replaced at some point, and the dashboard remains unmolested and in complete working order. All the lights, wipers, signals, and the blower are working great, it has nice glossy green paint, and very nice glass. It has the original 14 inch Buick wheels with 215/70/14 Firestone raised letter tires, and it is believed to have only 81k miles on the car! This is a fantastic car that is ready to be restored a little more!
