Buick Skylark race car 001.MOV

First , the Supercharger "rattle" sound in engine bay is quite normal , and comes from the bearings of the Supercharger. This goes away over 800rpm, and so you will not hear it when you drive. New setup with E85 fuel.... (1978-79 Buick Skylark Custom Sedan) Not original engine - it is a redone ZZ4 block with completely rebalanced rotating assembly ,forged crank and so on- with forged pistons , Dart Pro-1 heads (225 type) , modified by myself , Voodoo 1:7 rockers and much more...and Weiand Supercharger with "Superchiller" Intercooler system (pumps and reservoir in trunk...) , "Proform 850" race carburator with E85 plates and some other mods... this is a one-off engine. Driveline is accordingly to engine , with 10-bolt 3,73 / 4,11 "detroit locker" and all that is needed - "c-clip eliminator kit" , competition engineering "slide-a-link" and all the rest. Car is always considered for sale , to the right person ! (owned by myself since 1987 , so I can guarantee the history of this very rare and completely rust free car... I have all original parts in storage, so it can be taken back to complete original condition.) I can even sell Engine without the car ! Not very expensive compared to build cost - which is high. Can be tested on/off track. Buyer must be a licensed racer, because of the nature of this engine. It is wild.... (shipping not possible , will only trade in person , but I answer email.)

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.





1953 BUICK SKYLARK -- A SIX SEATER SPORTS CAR
1953, the 50th anniversary of the Buick motorcar, there appeared this Buick Skylark, one of three GM special editions. The Oldsmobile created the 98 Fiesta convertible, and Cadillac created the El Dorado convertible that were the other two divisions vying for attention. The Skylark was based on the Roadmaster chassis wearing cut down doors and a lowered beltline and top, rounded wheel openings, and wire wheels. The powerplant is a V8, 322 cid with 188 bhp. So you have a sports car that seats six with a powerful engine to boot. There were 1,690 of these Skylarks manufactured and it cost a whopping five grand to buy one of these. By the way, those Kelsey-Hayes wire wheels had a total of 40 spokes. This is a rare example of Buick's experimental car and one hardly ever gets to see one in person. Enjoy looking at this and as always thanks very much for viewing this 1953 Buick Skylark convertible.

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 chopping "Sinister-Like." This is a very similar cam to that I have in my '87 Stage-1 Buick 455 Regal (currently at the Dyno Shop). 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!!!





1965 Buick Skylark Gateway Classic Cars Chicago #681
One look at this 1965 Skylark and you will realize this is not your Grandpa’s Buick! This thing not only looks tough, but has the performance to back it up. This vehicle has had a lot done in the past 10,000 miles since rebuild including full air ride by Ridetech, 2 inch drop spindles, tubular A-Arms, adjustable ride height and a numbers-matching Wildcat 310. The 18” front and 20” rear wheels and nitrogen filled tires were replaced approximately 1,000 miles ago. In the mid 1960’s it was common belief that smaller vehicles of the time should be made in unit-bodied construction but Buick stuck with the full frame which makes modification and upgrading possible on this A-Body Beauty. This car really represents the best of the best with original styled interior features and stock body complimented by the new wheels and tires and adjustable air suspension. The Wildcat 310 was known for reliability and performance and this one is no exception. The attention to detail and amazing paint quality and finish is sure to demand a second look on the road. Investment quality convertibles from the 1960’s are becoming harder to find and this is your chance to own one that was done right with very close attention to detail and original attributes. Located in our Chicago showroom, this 1965 Buick Skylark Convertible can be seen including an HD video and pictures at www.gatewayclassiccars.com.

Bad-Ass Buick: 1955 Special - /BIG MUSCLE
Owner: • 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.
