1964 Buick Skylark

This is a great little cruiser fresh out of the barn and there is no reserve on the auction.This is basicallyroad ready for some Spring/Summer cruising with a patina look to it or a very straight forward restoration with some paint and a new top and very light restoration in the interior and you have a really nice car and possibly flip itand make a buck. It is very complete and all original car that will need very little whether you fully restore it or just to cruise around as is or while you restore it.

Finish -- Grade C-: Older repaint of the original Wedgewood Blue color paint faded probably would buff out ok. Body -- Grade B: Very nice body I took photos of some rust in the rear wheel wells. Front passenger fender has some filler in the bottom of it. Solid floors. Trunk is solid but with a a hole on one side and a very poor fiberglass patch on the other as shown in photos

Interior B: Great all original interior no rips in the original upholstery. Carpet is a little discolored but no holes or major wear spots. Great door and rear panels. Dash is clean and will just need some light cleaning and restoration. Factory AM radio works could use a speaker.

The convertible top needs replacing and the power top motor would not activate when I hit the switch. These are pretty easy to service and parts are readily available. Wipers work great no turn signals but parking lights come on. No headlights when the switch is turned on maybe the headlight switch or lamps? Fuse?

No noises or knocks cold or warm. Runs smooth under acceleration.No serious leaks just some light weeping around the valve covers.

New gas tank and sending unit.Runs well!!!


This is a great little car that needs a little if any work to have a lot of inexpensive fun with. I seriously considered just keeping it to tool around in to the beach this summer or run errands in as is. I figured I would drop the top and just leave it in the garage.Currently it needs anexhaust that would be about $200 installed.

That said it is an awesome base for a restoration that requires no real serious repair. Repaint this car and add a new top/repair the power top and some light restoration on the interior and under the hood and you have a great restored car worthy of local shows. If you are a paint and body car you have a great investment! Even if you are not convertibles are excellent investments and hold their value well.

I have tried my best to represent this vehicle as honestly and completely as possible however there are no warranties given or implied and this vehicle is sold as is.

Shipping is the responsibility of the Buyer however may I suggest two great local shippers that will help you get your car from Traverse City to anywhere in the US including to international shipping ports for international buyers. I have used both and advise you call both for a quote and problem free fast shipping.
