Buick Grand National Swap: 1968 Buick Skylark

When I first started reading about this next car, I have to admit that it got my nose crinkled up a bit. Why would you put a later V6 into a classic American muscle car when V8 power/torque/noise is so affordable…and then I thought…because you can. And because the Buick Grand National V6 was a turbocharged thing of beauty and not some junky Camry/Accord fuel saver. Nose un-crinkled, acknowledging positive head bob engaged. Find this 1968 Buick Skylark Buick V6 Turbo swapped offered for $14,999 in Lindenhurst, NY via craigslist. Tip from Cory.
