Spring is coming. It will be 19k in May. Looking to sell to fund new project.
Someone will secure a legit car that will only increase in value. You could not find a more solid better riding and running car for this price. If your shopping for a classic GM A body look around and find out. Only lowering price to sell quick to secure new ride. This car is a driver and should be driven and enjoyed. No its not matching numbers nor matching trans and for good reason. The original 3 speed was a dog set up (still have the trans and goes with car). With added compression from built heads and new TA Perf cam this car is great blend of usable Hp/Trq on both highway and around town perf. Ill included new flowmaster super 10s mufflers but removed because was obnoxious loud. The 50s sound perf and its not quiet.
This is an original, mostly restored and bullet proof 1968 Skylark. If you know Buick's you will appreciate this one very much. It has documented 43xxx miles. Solid and runs out perfect. Was originally purchased Ct as a 350 2 barrel three on the tree car. Since then the 3 speed was moved to floor and changed to a close ratio 4 speed. Floors, trunk frame clean zero rust/rot.
Body- was stripped to metal and painted by previous owner. Zero bondo and all original panels. Body panel gaps perf, doors shut perf and you do not slam them. Zero sagging. Was painted 2 years ago. All exterior trim intact.
Interior-was originally a 3 speed on column. Now four on floor. New clutch. Included is a 11' inch flywheel that wasn't needed for 4 speed swap. All interior is original and 100% wipers, dome light, dash lights and lighter works. Has stereo and it's updated professionally installed wt new speaker kick panels. Installed wt kit below dash. Not cut into dash. Original radio still in dash and turns on. Zero rips in seats or rugs. Custom no gloss walnut steering wheel just added with buick horn cap.
Wheels-new Cooper Cobra tires. 255 rear and 235 fronts wt new chrome Torque Thrust IIs
Exhaust-new flowmaster 50s. Tucked up and out of view
Lights-Updated Hella 4 sealed lights
Suspension-been rebuilt all new bushings through out and rear air shocks.
ENGINE- was new long block wt paper work when I purchased car. I had it then taken apart and added some needed HP and compression.
Steel ported and milled heads. Valve job and all head work performed by Boucher's in Rowley. They also milled heads .20 and added the springs guides and retainers.
Has TA perf stage I springs and guides. Added a TA perf 210 cam. This cam has slight lump at idle. Makes great vacuum and is matched with other engine mods perfectly. Not a over cammed dog. Matched wt a TA Perf Stage 1 ported manifold that was powder coated and topped off wt a Qjet performance, out of Texas, brand new 700cfm carb. Carb was built for engine. HEI ignition, hypo adjustable oil pump (60psi running and 40 idle). Never over heats ever. Lastly new black hooker headers and hypo gaskets NO LEAKS. Car revs to 5500...will rev higher but that's the power area and pulls hard. Will cruise on highway effortless 80mph. Postons(new) valve covers. Metal fuel line custom made, new plugs, new air cleaner, new wires, custom radiator over flow can as well.
I've got original protecto plate, orig keys and invoice when new. I've got paper work from all owners and ALL work done.
All receipts from work I've done. Work I've done well over 8k. Car is a pleasure to drive. It's sounds perf and is garaged year round. This Skylark is a great car and has around 350hp. If know Buick's and want one you know how they run and how hard to rebuild engine properly. I've won local car shows and was only one at Skips mega cruise night. Everything works including windshield washer, cigarette lighter, all interior lights heat and defroster. Floors frame and trunk are 100%. Original spare is in trunk.
Thank you for looking.
Ill discus price but be an adult and reasonable. Selling to buy a car got eye on. If doesn't sell I'll keep and not mind what so ever. Will not remove from garage wt out serious buyer on hand. If this was A body Chevelle it would cost 35k. I dont need help selling and dont be the person who makes a low ball offer and never even seen car in person. I dont want to hear about cars you've owned or what you think my car is worth.
I will include parts for 18k to clean shed and don’t need
3 speed Muncie
Carb parts
Extra air cleaner valve covers
455 rockers
Orig engine cam and push rods
