Skylark Restoration Parts
Reproduction Car Parts for Your Classic Skylark
The Skylark is a passenger car produced by the Buick division of GM. The model was made in six distinct generations, during it’s 46 year run. Over this period the car's design changed dramatically because of changes in technology, personal tastes and needs, and improved standards applied over the years. The Buick Skylark was actually named after a species of bird called skylark.
In the middle of the 1961, the Buick Special Skylark made was first introduced to the public. As a luxury trim level, it was the Buick Special Skylark based on a two-door coupe and featured its Skylark emblems, taillight housings, lower-body side moldings, turbine wheel covers, and a vinyl-covered roof. The 1961 Skylarks had three Ventiports or louvres on each fender and a plush all-vinyl interior was standard. Bucket seats were available as an option or an upgrade. The dashboard instruments were rather minimal and consised of only a speedometer and fuel gauge.
From 1964 through 1998 the Buick Skylark was no longer a trim level but it’s own model. It went through several drastic changes from medium-sized designs to being considered compacts. In the 1970s, GM produced some Buick muscle cars with large powerful engines like the 455 and the 468 to compete with the Torino and like models.
