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.
1969 BUICK SKYLARK CUSTOM
1969 BUICK SKYLARK CUSTOM Before and After clip. Took about a year to get
to this point. New Paint, new Chrome, New Shocks with Air shocks in the
back, GS 15 Rims with 235/60r15 rubber, Grill teeth fixed and painted, New
Seats. Still needed is.. Steering wheel refurbish and maybe new carpet. O
yea.. Still need to install the window felts. That is about it !! So all

how tight she is with no rattles or squeaks . Doors close like a vault and
are tight ! Engine idles and runs fantastic !! Even after more than 40
years !! I wish GM, actually I wish all car manufactures still made cars

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
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)
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.
