1965 Buick Skylark Special

1965 Buick Skylark Special

The Special, along with the upscale Skylark, were redesigned for the 1964 model year. The Skylark was expanded to a full top-line series while the Special was more the base model with  more limited range of body styles. This particular car is a well optioned Special with amenities such as Airconditioning, optional V8 and power brakes & power steering. Produced in Fremont CA, the car stayed its entire life in California.


The car was 6 years completely restored by a retired Buick mechanic. It’s repainted in its original and typical-Buick color Turqouise Mist. The paint presents very well and is significantly better than the average American paintjob. All chrome shines good with just a tiny dent in the rear bumper. New tires are installed on the color-matched wheels with Buick ‘dog dish’ hubcaps. We have additional pictures of the underside that underline how clean & well restored this car is!


The interior is completely redone during the restoration. The seats were redone in gray which matches great with the turquoise accents in the interior. A new GS-styled steering wheel is installed as well, the original steering wheel comes with the car too. All gauges and warning lights work flawless and the AC blows cold.


Mechanically everything works as it should. The original 300ci “Wildcat 310” has been rebuilt during restoration and runs as it should. The original rebuilt transmission is the standard ‘Super Turbine 300’ 2-speed automatic which shifts great. All fluids were replaced as well as spark plugs, coil, spark plug wires and distributor.


Overall this is a very clean, well restored car that’s ready to cruise!
