1969 Buick Skylark convertible frame/suspension walk around
This is my first video upload on Youtube...so take it easy on me..:)
This is the 69 Buick Skylark convertible I am working on. I have the frame
and front suspension done so I thought I'd make a video of it. More videos
to come on the rest of the car...including the big block 455 build.
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!
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.
1953 Buick Roadmaster Skylark Convertible Red
A rare car...and very expensive when built..$5000! It served as a showcase
for some new, swoopy styling at Buick, and the new overhead valve V8
engine. Beautiful red paint and interior...great power accessories and
Dynaflow. Who could wish for more?

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)
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!!!
