1968 Buick Skylark Custom, GS400 TrimFrame on restoration last year. This started as a 1968 Skylark Custom Convertible only 8500 made. I am the 3rd owner, the previous 2nd owner said it belong to an elder couple in North Seattle that used it on sunny days around Seattle always garaged. He was going to restore it but never had the opportunity. I have owned it since 2011 and started,,, then finally finished what you see here. Always garaged by all three owners. Come with a California car cover.
I decided to go with a 1969 GS 400 look with the 1969 functional ram air. There is so much to list and I probably have $40K into the Buick. The paint and body work is stunning. I will summarize the best I can, please ask any questions.
New Paint and upholstery, New Carpet, restored professionally, hundreds of hours of block sanding, all panels, fenders, hoods, we taken off and painted separately and then painstakingly put back on with proper alignment. The paint alone over $16K.
The dash is original, I was going to restore, repaint or replace it.
Professionally rebuilt transmission, Refurbished wheel well trim, New drum Brakes all around ( they work just fine over the discs). New radiator and heater core, restored factory Rochester 4 barrel, New distributor and wires, New Dual exhaust and mufflers, New Bilstein shocks with 2" Eibach lowering springs the stance is a wow factor, New Radio with AM/FM MP3 player, New stainless steel wind trim, New hood springs, B.F Goodrich Radial T/A's on Buick Rally wheels including the spare. Sound deadening under carpet, New door locks and handles, New Convertible top with New Top Frame assembly, New weather stripping all around, New windshield, New Grill ( I preferred the 68 look but you can change it to a 69 if desired) New front fender wells, Front bumper rechromed, New GS console for your drinks, the arm rest folds down as you can see. Period Sun Tachand Moon Gauges, the list goes on and on. This is a very nice driving car, smooth, fast and comfortable. This 60's muscle car drives very nicely with the power steering. It has the same A body as most of the other GM cars of the era, GTO, Lemans, Chevelle, Cutlass, etc.
I put as many pics as eBay would allow. There are pics of the build also. I will assist the shipper as I can but it is up to the new owner to figure the shipping costs.
This a bargain for what has gone into this car. Let me know if I can answer any questions. I will consider best offers as well. I have to pay the fees for eBay to make it beneficial for both of us.
