Vehicle Overview

1968 Buick Skylark convertible with very low original miles! Documented 25,000 mile car. The car is a rare color combination with the white and red interior and black top. The interior and top are original to the car. The body has had one repaint back in the 70s. There are just a couple rock chips but otherwise it is in fantastic condition. There is absolutely no rust on the car, it is as clean underneath as the top. This Buick runs and drives like a new car. The car came with the following factory options, power steering, power disc brakes, power windows, power seat and tilt steering column. I have the original build sheet in perfect condition.  Engine is the Buick 350 4 barrel, noted Buick Carb builder in Texas rebuilt the Q jet and the engine runs out flawlessly. Smooth idle, no hesitation and power through out the rpm range.  

The car came with a dealer installed under dash AC system, it was removed and the compressor system from the engine. Because the front part of the engine area had to be disassembled to remove the compressor and brackets, a decision was made to pull the radiator and had it flushed, and repainted. The original tags are still in place. Repainted the engine, installed new alternator brackets and alternator, and a new fuel pump. Fan shroud was cleaned and detailed.  All new radiator hoses were installed. The engine runs as smooth as new and has never overheated or given any reason for concerns. Transmission was serviced this spring, and shifts correctly, and the rear is a 2.73 open gear. Installed all new dual exhaust, with factory OEM style mufflers. It is quiet, but allows the engine to breath and run nicely. On a trip up the Mississippi into Wisconsin and Illinois and the car averaged 18 mpg on the trip, not too bad for 1960s technology.

The disc brakes from the factory were getting sticky from sitting, so he opted to replace them with a new modern set.  Also added a rear sway bar to let the car handle better. By installing the modern style disc brake calipers, He was able to add a new set of the Buick Rally wheels in 15x7 and new BFG TAs. He opted for the red bird center caps, instead of the traditional tri shield style. With the new disc brakes, he chose to replace the original factory master and booster with a new unit, He had the replacement built to directly copy the factory original, so it all looks period correct for the 68. You will notice there is even the factory tag hanging from the vacuum line that is coded for disc brakes. That has been on the car since new, and even though it's a paper tag, still looks near new.

The interior on the car is in absolutely beautiful condition, no tears, or issues, it all looks near new and the top is in like condition. The windows go up and down well, the top mechanism works correctly, and because the door and window seals are all still soft and flexible, it seals out wind noises very well. As stated the top is in the same condition as the interior, and fits and looks great. The 8 track is a dummy and houses a cd player. Chrome and trim on the car is in fantastic condition and really looks as though it may be 7 years old instead of 47 years old. I would hope any perspective buyer for this car to come look it over in person and drive it, I do not feel you would be disappointed with the overall condition of this wonderful Buick.
