As one of the nation’s oldest car manufacturers, Buick has been a mainstay through many generations of fine motorcars. Starting in 1899, the Buick name has been guided by some of the most influential people in automotive history with David Dunbar Buick, Billy Durant, Walter Marr, Harley Earl, and Walter Chrysler, to name a few. In the 1950s, Buick was on top of its game with the Special, Super, and Roadmaster, but a new model called the Skylark made its debut in 1953 as the absolute finest in the Buick family. Selling for the cost of a new Cadillac, the Skylark left no doubt that it was a special car for the truly affluent.

The stylish side of Buick is portrayed nicely in this 1954 Skylark in Roman Red that features all of the fine attributes that characterize a glamorous car from the 1950s. Buick pulled out all of the stops in the design for the Skylark as demonstrated by its contrasting black wheelhouses, chrome wire wheels, and rounded rear deck that featured two large jet-like tail fins grafted onto the body. This Skylark has been treated to a full restoration and has been driven sparingly since. All chrome including its large grille, massive bumpers, trim spears, and unique Skylark emblems shine like new. The interior is upholstered in fine red leather with black accents on the dashboard. An attractive gauge pod houses all instrumentation and this Skylark still retains its factory radio. Power for this cruiser comes from a 322 cubic-inch Fireball V-8 in an engine compartment that is nicely detailed with correct colors, wiring, and hoses. Power reaches the rear wheels through Buick’s Dynaflow automatic transmission. As a top-of-the-line car, this Skylark boasts power steering, power brakes, Easy-Eye glass, Selectronic AM radio, Weather Warden heater and defroster, dual side view mirrors, power-assisted top, power windows, four-way seat, and telescopic antenna. Since its high quality restoration, this fine car has belonged to two fastidious and discerning custodians of world-class vintage automobile collections who have a great appreciation and eye for milestone automobiles.

Buick’s Skylark was certainly one of the most beautiful cars on the road in the 1950s, but its high cost proved to be too much for the motoring public and it was canceled after a two-year production run. The name was revived in mid-1961 as a luxury trim package on the Buick Special, but it was not the same. With just 836 built for one-year-only production, this Skylark represents a unique opportunity to acquire a car that was glamorous then and is even more so now.
