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.
