1972 Buick Skylark 455,
My 72 Skylark 350 sport coupe, I've had it about 10 or 11 years and I
bought it from the original owners family after he had passed away. It used
to be a grandfathers car now it's just an old guys toy. Soon after I
bought it I installed a warmed up 350 and it ran real good. One day I
wanted more so I built a .030 over 455 and that's when the trouble started.
The original owners name Was Charley Daniels(no not that one)May he rest in
peace because lord knows, When ever I start this thing up nobody rests in
peace. Mwuh hah ha hah ha ha
1972 Buick Skylark ride
This is a video of my late brother Andrew and his 1972 Buick Skylark.
Andrew was undergoing chemo at the time this video was shot so it was one
of his last rides in the car. He had the car for 20 years and performed
all sorts of modifications on it such as rebuilding the engine, converting
the car to a five speed manual and toughening up the suspension. The car
is a Buick 350, 4 bbl and five speed. Andrew passed away on December 31st,
2006. The music is from King Crimson.

made 792hp/701tq at the flywheel on a superflow engine Dyno. Chassis Dyno showed 618rwhp AT 5500 ONLY
- data did not log up to the 6800 it was run to due to a Dyno error. Based on the 70hp
increase from 5500 to 6800 rpm on the engine Dyno (horsepower peaks at
6800rpm), we are guessing we have around 670-690hp at the wheels. Car will
be back on the Dyno in
the spring. Engine built by Mike Lewis of Lewis Racing Engines,

Summit Race Mufflers on a '72 Skylark
I recently put Summit Race mufflers on my 1972 Buick Skylark. I love the
sound and the best part is the mufflers cost $28.95 a piece! Forgive me for
the poor quality of sound from the bad mike and the dirty undercarriage of
65 Nova / 2.5" X-pipe system / Racepro
This 1967 Nova has a Pypes 2.5" header-back system with a performance
enhancing X-pipe. The owner chose Pypes Racepro mufflers for their mild
sound and great flow rating.
