    Default 71' Buick Skylark 455 4 speed!

    For sale is my 71' Buick Skylark 455 4 speed. I guess you can call it a GS tribute. I have copied and pasted below from a Word file I created on the car of what I have done do it. I have had the car since 06' and previous owner had paint and body work done. Its about 13 years old now and still is VERY nice.

    Couple photos pasted here and please click link for more and video from today. Car will be listed other places but would be nice if went to someone here. I also may include some nice Buick parts like 15" Powder coated steel wheels with VERY nice Buick poverty caps.

Top in very good condition no peeling or bubbling
    New Front windshield


    Probably much more I am missing which is why I put in word file to add or change. I am about the 4th owner and have done all the mechanicals in my possession. I had a Wildcat Engines built 455 in the car for about 2000 miles that had many issues which is why the recent rebuild now. In the last year with the new motor, 4 speed conversion, exhaust, new powder coated front end all new body bushings etc.. In this past year I have spent over $20,000 alone (parts& labor done right!).
    This car has been garaged for many years as proven by its condition. All the hard and expensive stuff is done new motor, new fuel system, new 4spd trans, new suspension front and rear, brakes, new exhaust, newer rear, new driveshaft, new core support, new inner fender well, all new body bushings. I am very meticulous about my cars condition and look. I have owned this car since early 06’ you will not find a car of this quality of parts and work at this price anywhere!
    This car flat out flies and pulls hard through the gears but is also tame enough for short trips or long cruises and you don’t need to keep filling it up with race gas! Jump in a drive it anywhere for years to come. Handles VERY well and excellent ride quality at all speeds.
    I have WAY over asking price into the car and have just lost some interest and have other interests that will keep me from this car. I have all the receipts for the work on this car.

    $21,000
    Please contact if truly serious about owning the car. Have many pictures and can take more.

    Wow is right! This is one of my favorite Buicks on this board. I've even used it as the background on my desktop - I have a soft spot for the '71s and it's built just like I would have done it. This car deserves a great home.

    Certainly does not help . Not ideal time to list a car but easy enough to do. No rush.

    I have Seen that the Car is also listet on eBay. I was asking to find out if you still Owned it because there it was listed by a Dealer. Do you have to wait for the end of the auction?
