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)

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
Buick - History Documentary (1995)
This video is a wonderfully-done documentary, written and produced by
Michael Rose, on the history of Buick as presented in 1995 from the History
Channel's archive. Here is Michael's description of the video verbatim:
"No one would have believed that the tinkering of a plumber would turn into
the foundation of the world's largest corporation. But it did. David Dunbar
Buick invented a process to adhere porcelain to tubs and other bathroom
fixtures. But the Scottish immigrant dreamed of making a mark out of the
bathroom, and set to work building a car. By 1900, he enlisted the aid of
another inventor, Walter Marr, and they built their first vehicle. Their
invention attracted the attention of one of Michigan's wealthiest men,
William Crapo Durant, the president of the world's largest buggy-building
business. As soon as he drove one of Buick's early creations, Durant
realized that the days of the horse and buggy were over. He teamed up with
Buick, and the two went on to make history. By the thirties, Buicks were
regarded as some of the finest cars ever made. From the first Buicks
through the birth of General Motors and into history, this is the
compelling story of the partnership that eventually became the basis for
the largest company in the world."
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

Redline Review: 2013 Buick Encore
A tiny footprint, spacious cabin, and surprising driving dynamics will
surely impress any shopper who has yet to see what the Buick brand has
available. The 2013 Encore is certainly a strong and unique offering in a
class that will surely get more crowded in the coming years. Only a lack of
few premium features and perhaps more power hold it back from being the
best-in-class offering; but, those of you who need a small premium utility
vehicle should place the Encore high on your list.
