77 buick skylark
Hi, this is my 77 buick skylark. This is one of the first cars that me and
dad restored. This is also the first car that I ever painted. The engine is
a 358 sbc we custom built. It is bored and also has stainless stell valves
too much more to list. Can't remember the duration of the cam though. We
just put this engine in new about a year ago and has over 4,000 miles on it
now. It still has the stock open rear and factory stall converter but still
has plenty of power. I will upload a speed clip later on. Thanks again for
1965 Buick Skylark Gateway Classic Cars Chicago #681
One look at this 1965 Skylark and you will realize this is not your
Grandpa’s Buick! This thing not only looks tough, but has the
performance to back it up. This vehicle has had a lot done in the past
10,000 miles since rebuild including full air ride by Ridetech, 2 inch drop
spindles, tubular A-Arms, adjustable ride height and a numbers-matching
Wildcat 310. The 18” front and 20” rear wheels and nitrogen filled
tires were replaced approximately 1,000 miles ago.
In the mid 1960’s it was common belief that smaller vehicles of the time
should be made in unit-bodied construction but Buick stuck with the full
frame which makes modification and upgrading possible on this A-Body
Beauty. This car really represents the best of the best with original
styled interior features and stock body complimented by the new wheels and
tires and adjustable air suspension. The Wildcat 310 was known for
reliability and performance and this one is no exception. The attention to
detail and amazing paint quality and finish is sure to demand a second look
on the road.
Investment quality convertibles from the 1960’s are becoming harder to
find and this is your chance to own one that was done right with very close
attention to detail and original attributes.

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.
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
Transmission: turbohydramatic 350 (with
a shift kit for fun :D)
