1963 Buick SkylarkMy wife is selling her 1963 Buick Convert.It is a nice driver with an older restoration. The paint isn't perfect with some scuffs and light scratches, but presents well.
It is really fun to drive with the V8 and four speed transmission.The 215CI motor surprisingly has decent power. It feels like a bigger motor than it is. The motor reminds me of a 283 that I had back in the day that acted like a 327.The exhaust sounds great and you get looks wherever you go.
There is some rust through in the floor pans where your feet sit. It has an older patch job, so the floors are safe and feel good under your feet, but you can see the rust through when you look under the car.The trunk looks great.
The drivers door handle works from the inside, but it is sitting crooked. I haven't taken the panel off to see why it is sitting off center.There is a battery draw as the car sits. I disconnect the battery if it is going to sit for more than a day.There is an antifreeze leak at the moment that I intend to have fixed before the auction ends.The oil leaks out of the drain plug, but again will be remedied soon.
If you are looking for a show car this isn't it, but if you want a cool cruiser then a convertible is hard to beat.
I intend to get more pictures and a video of the car driving. Right now I am just getting the listing started.Thanks for your interest.
