Buick Skylark Restoration Part 1
This is the beggining of the restoration to a very rare motor car. According to the official registration plates this vehicle saw life in South Gate CA as a limited production model. It is our intention to return the condition to better than new. This will not sit well with the puritan but will secure the vehicle for many years to come. The shell will be returned to metal and we will build from there. The engine and gearbox are finished and will be the subject for a further video.
1969 BUICK SKYLARK CUSTOM WITH L77 350 4B WOW !
Love this car.. Pulls strong and you can feel it !! Even up here in Colorado.. rated at 300hp and 400 ft lbs. Under rated it seems.. I use 2 gals of E85 per tank to rid it of detonation and advanced timing 2 degrees more.. It is a blast !! But.. On a Sour note.. I was just hit in the butt by a Teen yesterday.. Damage to bumper, Trunk lid, paint and Steering wheel is cracked. Bummer.. Kid was given tickets and had insurance. Bummer is... Denver Bumper is closed so the Rear bumper will have to be sent off to Salt Lake City for Triple Plated American Re Chroming.. Not sure how long this will take.. Anyway.. It can be fixed... Not so sure about my neck... Should have seen the VW Jetta that tagged me.. Wow !! Enjoy the ride..
