This is a sleek and luxurious classic that has all the right features you want: from an A/C interior to the numbers-matching V8 under the hood. So we're surprised, too, that a classic drop-top like this is still affordable today. That's why it's time to get your hands on this 1968 Buick Skylark Custom convertible before someone else discovers its value.
You paid more for a Buick back in the day, but not everyone was willing to invest in premium. So a '68 Skylark Custom convertible is rare with only 8,188 produced. But there's a lot more to love here than just rarity. The added expense for these was all about style. The sweeping sides look great, with a contoured trim piece that seamlessly swoops over the front fenders and through the door line. It helps to highlight the curves that make this Skylark look like a bird of prey. Buick seemed to like showcasing the most dramatic lines, so the front end is dominated by shiny chrome and pointed sharp edges. It's even more striking in the rear where the tapered trunk meets the form-fitting bumper to create a look that is positively European. Overall, it's an amazing work of art that car companies wouldn't even attempt today, and you can see all of it so well thanks to great care. That means big picture items, like a quality look to the white convertible top and a sharp-looking respray of the factory correct Teal Blue Mist. Even the details are nice, like newer door seals. So this has been a loved convertible, and the whole presentation really shows it.
While we like the way this one looks with the roof up, with the flip of a switch, it powers down to reveal an even more impressive interior. After all, the shining blue vinyl inside harmonizes with the shining blue exterior vinyl to have a very well-coordinated total appearance inside and out. There has been a solid investment here so that this has a terrific stock style, right down to the trim on the seats and the taut door panels. But if you look a little closer, they also intergraded some great upgrades to makes this classic an appealing modern cruiser. For example, the factory air conditioning is now blowing cold with modern R134a refrigerant. And the classic Delco Buick AM/FM radio was restored so that you can now also plug in your phone or iPod for modern music. Plus, the updated three-spoke sports steering wheel goes with the front bucket seats and center console to really make this feel like a driver's classic.
Under the hood this car proudly shows off its original numbers-matching 350 cubic-inch powerplant. The clean and correct engine bay has bright Dante Red paint on the block, and some well-done maintenance within. For example, the ignition has been upgraded to a useful electronic unit, but it still has a retro-style cap. And the entire cooling system was recently serviced, including a new water pump, thermostat, coolant, and cap. It makes for a smooth running and driving example of everything you want in a vintage drop-top. That also includes nice cruising features like the two-speed automatic transmission, power steering, power brakes, and updated front discs.
This Skylark comes with its original warranty card, owner's manual, and maintenance records. This level of presentation is usually reserved for high-dollar classic, so you better hurry before this bargain is gone. Call today!!!
