Barrett-Jackson countdown: 1953 Buick Skylark convertible

This is the seventh car in a 10-day countdown to Barrett-Jackson’s annual Northeast auction

In 1953, Buick celebrated its 50th Anniversary by releasing a limited run of 1,690 Skylark convertibles. Lot No. 653 is one of those.

This car underwent a full frame-off restoration in the early 2000s that was well documented. During the project, the car was given a new top and interior.

The Skylark has a Nailhead V8 engine mated to an automatic transmission. It is equipped with power brakes and windows. It also has a seat antenna and rides on Kelsey Hayes wire wheels.

Overall, the car looks to be in great shape.

Barrett-Jackson’s annual Northeast auction is scheduled for June 20-23 at the Mohegan Sun in Uncasville, Connecticut.

    Well, that is good to know. A “full frame-off restoration” includes a “new top and interior”. I was worried those smallish items may have been passed over in the restorer’s haste to finish.
