This next car is something else. It has that sweet 64 Buick Skylark hardtop shape that is undeniably sexy, and a built 327 V8 with a huge gas spewing carburetor, built powerglide 2-speed tranny, and the worlds smallest gas tank. I challenge you to find a car that would require more trips to the gas station than this car on a trip from LA to Vegas. But my kids need to go pee every 35 seconds whenever we are on a road trip, so perhaps this would work okay. I wonder if you could zip-tie a car seat to a roll cage… Find this 1964 Buick Skylark offered for $9,500 in Santa Rosa, CA via craigslist.

I am selling this 1964 Buick Skylark, a car that was originally built in Fremont California. This car is a Beast !
It was built as a street driven bracket car back in the 70’s. It has a Balanced and Built 327, Steel crank, Pop-up pistons, Pink rods, Deep sump oil pan, Dual remote oil filters, Re-worked cast iron GM 202 heads, High-lift solid lifter camshaft, Crane cam roller rockers and Stud girdles, Air gap intake manifold, New $1000 Big Brawler carburetor, New MSD distributor, Coil and wires, Aluminum radiator, Electric water pump, Electric fan, Optima battery, New high-torque starter, High-end 1 7/8″ primary headers, Race mufflers, Built powerglide transmission, 3500 Stall converter, Shift kit, deep finned aluminum B&M pan, Driveshaft safety loop, Built 12 posi-traction rear axle (street friendly with no spool), Chrome diff cover, Old-school chrome ladder bars that are tied into the frame with DS loop (see pic), Small fuel cell in trunk with Holley electric fuel pump located under trunk pan near tank, New brakes all around, New front shocks, Air shocks in rear, Weld Drag-lite 15″ wheels all around, new tires in front and M/T slicks in the rear, Body is in great shape, as it probably hasn’t been on the road much since being built in the 70’s, Decent glossy paint, No dents, I don’t see any rust on the body, and floor pans are real nice with just some surface rust, Trunk pan was replaced due to leaking trunk seals, Rear fender lips have been professionally radiused with original lip, Hood and trunk lid lift off, Old-school snorkel hood scoop,
All exterior trim is there, All glass is there, New drivers side mirror, I have the headlight buckets and lamps for front, but cavities are blacked out with sheet metal inserts, New door locks and keys, Bumpers are pretty straight, as is all the trim, Aluminum panels in the interior, switch panel, New tachometer, Guages, Roll bar, Racing seats with newer seat belt harnesses, I have a refreshed instrument cluster pieces, No heater box or rear seat, New ignition switch with keys for dash, complete wiring harness from headlamps to tail lights, New color-coded wiring diagram.
I bought this car, mainly to turn into a Pro-street car. You see the typical Chevy and Ford everywhere, but this is a different breed, same A-body car as the 64-65 Chevelle’s, It is a attention-getter for sure and turns heads wherever I drive it… Lot’s of thumbs up.
It could use wider rear tires, as they spin quite a bit when shifted into 2nd gear. It wouldn’t take much to make this car a street-pounder.
Feel free to ask any questions that are Not already answered in the ad, as I have Nothing to hide.
I have a clean title in-hand.
