Manufactured between 1961 and 1963, the Skylark was related to the Oldsmobile F-85 and the Pontiac Tempest. Buick's claim to fame was its amazingly light and powerful, all-aluminum 3.5-liter V-8 engine. After the 1963 model year, the tooling for this mechanical marvel was sold to the English Rover group, where it served faithful duty for three decades in many different applications, such as the Range Rover and the Morgan V8, just to name a few.
In 1963, the body was restyled and minor changes made to the interior, particularly to the dash and instrument cluster. Engine choices were a standard 198 cu in V6 with a twin-barrel carburetor and an optional 215 cu in V8 with 155 HP (two-barrel) or more powerful four-barrel 200 HP. Transmission choices were a 'three on the tree' manual transmission, a floor shift Borg-Warner T-10 four-speed manual, or a two-speed Turbine Drive automatic. The two speed "Dual Path Turbine Drive" automatic was a Buick design and shared no common parts with the better-known Chevrolet Power-Glide transmission.
This Skylark convertible spent most of its life in Texas and arrived in the Midwest 8 years ago, the ’63 has been garage kept and well maintained through all of its life. It is powered by the 215 cu in V-8 engine and 2 speed Turbine Drive automatic transmission. The arctic white paint and body are straight and the blue vinyl interior is nice too. It is perfect for top down cruising!
