1965 Buick Skylark skylark

First let me say that I purchased this from a gentleman who owned this car for more than 25 years. This car was his baby but it was just time for him to let it go. I purchased this car with the intentions of keeping it for a long time. I was going to paint it a different color. Car is plated and insured in my name. I have been driving the wheels off it and it gets a ton of compliments. A car has surfaced I want to purchase-this must go. I reserve the right to pull this auction should the other be sold before I can get my hands on it.
Within the last 2000 miles the following parts are new
The engine was totally rebuilt
The trans was totally rebuilt
Water pump - power steering pump-Alternator-voltage regulator-battery-battery cables-starter-radiator-fan shroud-cap-points &condenser- wires and plugs-hoses and belts-fuel pump-wiper motor and pump- front end was rebuilt-1 1/4 front sway bar added-heater core and blower motor (heat will run you out of the car) -Pirelli tires-shocks-exhaust-rear springs- complete F41 boxed control arms with rear sway bar-complete disc brake kit on front-new brakes on rear-relay-oil and water sending units-Custom Auto Sound Stereo (original included and reportly worked) New parts not yet installed -Door-roof-trunk-cowl weatherstrip kit as well as window felt kit-(he was saving these for the new paint)
Interior is all original except the radio, this included the floor mats. Front bucket seat needs recovered and carpet shows some wear. Headliner is in good shape but shows discoloration.
Body is a good solid body with multiple scratches and small dings. Paint on car is over 25 years old except were previous owner tried to touch some up. You will want to paint the car.
Everything works- except the key buzzer-
What does the car need?
Paint and some light body work
front seat covers
one of the rear window is slow going up so it may need a new motor someday
The carb has been rebuilt but it has a stumble when you first take off until its warm. The accelerator pump is weak - I believe it was weakened by the alcohol in the gas.
I will stop the auction at anytime for $7800 in cash. I will also give you a $200 dollar discount if you can pay me in cash, as long as the other car still available.
The longest I drove this car was 80 miles one way. I truly believe you can jump in this car and drive it out of state.
I live one hour north of Indy. Delivery maybe available up to 200 miles one way, but you must call first. 765 206 0350 Steve.
