Description:

1962 Buick Skylark Special 78,670 Original Miles

Introduced in the middle of the “compact” era this upscale small Buick was powered by a unique and snappy aluminum V-8with automatic transmission, that produced 190 horsepower. With a Rochester 4 barrel it was capable of 0-60 in 9 seconds. Only 8913 were built and according to DMV records there are only 128 convertibles registered on the road. Making this a "EXTREMELY RARE CAR". The car is Regal Red with solid GM white interior. The car was repainted at least once in its life and retains a good shine but is not without flaws. it is a nicely maintained driver and is a matching numbers car.It runs great and is fully capable and dependable for touring, club outings and general fun in daily use. I would not hesitate to drive it anywhere. I believe the odometer to be 78,670, It was owned and garaged by a Elderly Man that really took care of the Car
