1972 Buick Skylark GSX Tribute
This 1972 Buick Skylark CSX Tribute is one sharp looking muscle car. A thorough rotisserie restoration has left it with a magnetic appearance you can't help but gawk at, and during the process it was outfitted with professionally built big block power under the hood and a host of outstanding upgrades to give it the performance and handling very much befitting a classic modeled after Buick's top of the line muscle cars of the early '70s. There's little doubt that this well-configured Buick could make its presence felt both on the boulevard and on the local car show circuit. Its Royal blue exterior, accented with painted white striping, makes a great impression right off the bat with its strong shine and smooth texture. Peer through the clear front windshield and you'll see one of the coolest vintage style cues GM ever came up with - the singular hood-mounted tach and, unlike so many of its counterparts, this one is fully functional. Take a lap around and you'll see its body lines are tight and uniform, the bumpers both fore and aft are straight and clean, and there's a great looking fiberglass spoiler mounted on the trunk that sports a sharp GSX sticker. A white vinyl convertible top stands by to protect you during inclement weather. The fetching white interior has a great classic look that's a fitting accompaniment to the high impact exterior. Both the front buckets and rear bench seat are in great shape. Despite their vulnerable color, you won't find much in the way of discoloration or other signs of wear - and they're very comfortable. The factory instrument cluster sports easily readable gauges that are joined by aftermarket oil pressure and water temperature gauges just below. Air conditioning was a fairly rare option back in the early '70s, but not only is it on board here, it's blowing as cold as you could want and with plenty of conviction. Your audio needs will be very capably looked after - the Kenwood AM/FM/CD player features both auxiliary and USB ports to accommodate a wide array of inputs, while the JL subwoofers and amp in the trunk add plenty of heft and bottom end to the sound filling the cabin. Raise the deck lid in back and you'll see that the trunk is clean and sturdy and a full size spare is standing by. This ultra-sharp Buick is powered by a 455 cubic inch crate V8 whose displacement alone would make it a force to be reckoned with, but it offers plenty more than that. A pair of aluminum heads, an SPX intake manifold as well as Haltach tuned port fuel injection have been added to the mix to not only take its power game up a few notches, but to provide adjustability and dependable all-weather starting as well. This sizable engine pairs with a 3-speed automatic that's also performing at the top of its game, so this potent drivetrain combines functionality with a low-effort driving experience. A well-respected Hotchkiss suspension and traction bars have been added to give this classic Buick both surefootedness and handling characteristics that likely exceed those of its upper crust inspiration. Its factory power steering is in good form to provide smooth navigation, while power brakes that feature discs up front team with an upgraded master cylinder to bring quick, easy stops. It's sure to turn heads everywhere it goes as it cruises on a set of 15" Buick rims wrapped with BF Goodrich T/A radials with massive, asphalt grabbing 295s in back. Front to back early '70s awesomeness, combined with some great modern touches for an enhanced driving experience - this 1972 Buick Skylark CSX Tribute is a rare find. Call today!
