1964 Buick Skylark Convertible
A few of you had asked to see this Buick, that you had seen in the back of
a previous video. It's a 1964 Buick Skylark Convertible. It's powered by
the original 300 Cubic Inch V8, factory rated at 210 HP and 310 LbFt of
Torque. Overall, it has been really well preserved. It's a nice solid
car, that runs well. It could definitely use a good bath right now, as
it's pretty dusty at the moment. I hope you find it interesting, thanks

1965 BUICK SKYLARK CONVERTIBLE SOLD Drager's 206-533-9600
1965 BUICK SKYLARK CONVERTIBLE. # 444675H121712. I like finding cars
like this. I got the original window sticker with it showing it was sold in
Mountain View California. Also the Protect-O-Plate showing it was sold to
the first owner 11/27/1964 living in Saratoga California. Im not sure when
it came to Washington but I got a lot of receipts from as far back as 1993
in Seattle. The receipts show the engine was rebuilt 2004. When I bought it
the owner had bought a new carpet kit but had not installed it so my son
Andrew did. You will see current floor pan photos. Floor pans look great.
The window sticker shows wire wheel covers and they are still on the car.
Another neat thing that shows on the window sticker Custom Trim Bucket
Seats. You can expect to find a few spots in the paint and it has some,
nothing big. Minor rust bubbles too. The top is old and shows age but
should last a long time. For me the top is alI ways down except when my
wife wants it up. Its triple white. V-8 with automatic transmission. Power
steering. Power brakes. Power top. Came with front seat belts and the rear
seat belts have been added. In the trunk we found very small rust holes in
the floor. All serviced and safety checked. Installed new wheel cylinders
on the front along with new front brake lining. You will like driving this
car. Every Buick I have had in the 60s I have liked. They are great cars.
You can drive this Buick anywhere. Im looking forward to driving it a lot
before its sold. Im pricing it to sell in this market. I have found them
for sale from rough cond. to fine from $6,000 to $28,000. Cond. # 3-.

1965 Buick Skylark Gran Sport hardtop
Beautiful car, with a Wildcat engine...401 c.i. behemoth. Is it any wonder
these cars could GO! Buick was certainly not going to be ignored within
General Motors..and could be very competitive with Chevelle, GTO and
Cutlass ! The ingredients were the same...big engine, relatively small,

Bad-Ass Buick: 1955 Special - /BIG MUSCLE
• Harry Fisher
In stock form, the 1955 Buick Special could best be described as a "nice"
car. It's not drop dead gorgeous like a 1959 Impala, nor does it have the
panache of say a 1956 Chrysler 300. You see the '55 Buick Special was a
working mans car. It had room enough for the whole family, a decent
power-plant thanks to its 264 cubic inch V8, and style that was, well...
above average. Harry Fisher or "Uncle Harry" as most people know him, saw
the old Buick a bit differently though. He knew that with a few little
touches (like a 502 cubic inch big-block, modern suspension, and a new set
of wheels) that this old Buick had the potential to become one of the
baddest hot-rods around.
JOHNNYLARK'S Stage-1 Buick 455 Skylark with "TA286-08H" Camshaft & 1.6 Rockers!!! 5-30-2013
This was a COOL DAY! I finally met "Johnnylark" of V8buick.com at the Home
Depot Parking Lot MUSCLE CAR MEET.
YOU MUST SEE THE "entrance" Johnnylark made with this Buick 455 Stage-1
Skylark's TA PERFORMANCE "286-08H" cam CHOPPING like crazy accompanied by
his TA PERFORMANCE 1.6 ROCKERS!
Johnny & his COOL son "John" made my day. In the video I recorded prior to
this one ... I stated that there's NO Buick Muscle Cars attending ... and
felt disappointed until I heard ... we ALL heard this Buick 455 Stage-1
This is a very similar cam to that I have in my '87 Stage-1 Buick 455 Regal
(currently at the Dyno
The guy in the white wife-beater suggesting that Johnny "reverse it in,"
actually stated a few seconds before that ... "A car like THIS shouldn't be
over there by itself." Classic!
JOHNNY IS THE COOLEST!!!

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)
1966 Buick Convertible Barn Find Rescue, Part 1
This is the story of a '66 Buick Special convertible that had been
abandoned in Arizona in 1978 by the family of Rick Pewe, editor of 4-Wheel
& Off-Road magazine. In 2011, the guys from HOT ROD Magazine, in
conjunction with Rick, spent four days bringing the car back from the dead
with plans to drive it home from Phoenix to Los Angeles. This is part 1,
with the hacking fun the guys had rescuing the car. Look for part two,
loaded with road-trip hilarity. The story is printed in the September 2011
issue of HOT ROD Magazine.
