1964 Buick Skylark

Sporty Buick Convertible

Restore or Drive

VEHICLE DESCRIPTION:

VEHICLE HISTORY: The current owner purchased this car in 1991. He and his wife drove it a bit, but it needed a little sprucing up. In 1993 it was repainted and new upholstery installed. They took this sporty convertible to their summer house on Put In Bay, Ohio and it remained there ever since. It was driven only on nice days, and in all the island parades. They enjoyed it immensely over the last 25 years, but have sold the cottage and this Skylark is ready for a new owner to enjoy!

MARQUE HISTORY: For 1964 the Buick Skylark became its own model in the Buick lineup. See the below link for all the details: http://www.hemmings.com/magazine/hcc/2008/12/1964-1965-Buick-Skylark/1735071.html

VEHICLE CONDITION:

We do a mechanical and cosmetic inspection to each vehicle before listing it for sale. This report is included below will provide a reasonable description of the vehicle condition. Older vehicles are subject to normal wear and tear and we have tried to indicate the overall condition of the vehicle to the best of our ability. But, we can not always find everything that is not perfect with a vehicle, so independent inspections are welcome and encouraged. We drive each vehicle approximately 20 miles, but this is no indication of its long term road-worthiness. The only guarantee with an older vehicle is that someplace, sometime, something will need repaired!
