The basic Skylark was available as a two-door hardtop coupe or a four-door
sedan. The Skylark Custom came as a two-door convertible coupe, two-door
hardtop coupe, four-door hardtop sedan, or four-door sedan.
The previous V6 was discontinued and the associated tooling was sold to
Kaiser Industries, which used the V6 in its Jeep trucks and sport utility
vehicles. The base engine in Buick Skylarks (and Buick Special sedans)
became a 250-cubic-inch inline six-cylinder engine using a 1-barrel
Rochester carburetor (borrowed from Buick's sister Chevrolet division) that
produced 155 hp (116 kW) at 4200 rpm.
Optional on the Skylark and standard on the Skylark Custom was a new 350
cubic inch V8 engine using a 2-barrel Rochester carburetor that produced
230 hp (170 kW) at 4400 rpm. This engine was based on the previous 300- and
340-cubic inch-displacement V8 engines. The Buick Special name was dropped
after the 1969 model year.
For 1970, the mid-sized Buicks once again received new sheet metal and the
Buick Skylark name was moved down another notch, replacing the previous
Buick Special. The Skylark became the entry-level Buick available in two-
and four-door sedans with the 250-cubic-inch inline-6 as standard and the
350 cubic inch V8 (260 horsepower at 4600 rpm)
available as an option.
Replacing the previous Buick Skylark was the Buick Skylark 350, available
as a two-door hardtop coupe or four-door sedan with the 350 cubic inch V8
as standard equipment. This 350 cubic inch engine was a different design
then the Chevy's 350 CID engine (4.000 in × 3.48 in) the Buick design had
a longer stroke and smaller bore (3.80 X 3.85 in) allowing for lower-end
torque, deep skirt block construction, higher nickel-content cast iron, 3.0
in crank main journals, and 6.5 in connecting rods, the distributor was
located in front of the engine (typical of Buick), the oil pump was
external and mounted in the front of the engine, the rocker arm assembly
had all rocker arms mounted on a single rod and were not adjustable. The
Skylark Custom continued to be available, also using the 350 cubic inch V8
as standard equipment and still available as a two-door convertible coupe,
two-door hardtop coupe, four-door hardtop sedan, and four-door sedan. Buick
Gran Sport models continued to be available as a separate series. The Buick
Sport Wagon name was now used on a conventional four-door station wagon
that no longer featured a raised roof with glass panels over the cargo
area, or a longer wheelbase, as in the past. It now used the same 116 in
wheelbase as the Buick Skylark four-door sedan and the now-discontinued
Buick Special four-door Station Wagon. It became, in effect, a Buick
Skylark four-door station wagon in all respects but the name.
1972 was the last model year for the mid-sized Buick Skylark. During this
model year many pollution controls were added to the Engines, Compression
was lowered, engines had to accept leaded and unleaded gas, and spark
timing was retarded (no vacuum advance in lower gears) while driving in
lower gears to reduce emissions. For 1972, the base Buick Skylark used the
350 cubic inch V8 with the 2-barrel Rochester carburetor (now putting out
145 horsepower) as
standard equipment. A new federally-mandated system to calculate power was
put into effect that year, and the actual engine performance was probably
comparable but slightly lower because of pollution controls in the 1972
model year to the 230 hp (170 kW) that was listed for the previous year.
The Skylark 350 now used a version of the same V8 engine as the base
Skylark, but with a 4-barrel Rochester carburetor that generated 170 hp
