The 1954 Buick Skylark Convertible was one of Harley Earl's masterpiece designs of the '50's era. There were only 836 hand built Skylark's that made it to the general public back in 1954. This Skylark is No. 342 out of 836. It has spent most of it's life garage kept in Florida. Previous owner just didn't drive it any longer and said it's time for a new home. This Skylark was purchased to be driven and enjoyed and not put on a shelf to be admired only. It has 81,800 miles on the original drive train. The exterior of the car was restored back in 2006 and still looks great. The rust free body was refinished back to the factory color of Arctic White and it's looks very nice. Freshly buffed it out and the finish looks beautiful. All the chrome has been refinished and looks near show quality. The interior, which is still mostly original, is an area where although looking very presentable, can use some restoration in order to bring it up to the next level. The soft boot is in great condition and fits. It was about 34 degrees when the pictures were taken and it wouldn't stretch for all the snaps to fit. The glass is in very good condition except for two small rock chips in the windshield. The window frames do show signs of some pitting. The engine bay is clean and original but not show condition. The trunk is very solid, but could use some new floor and side matting. The undercarriage is very solid with no rust through issues anywhere. It's been driven but maintained and shows typical road dust and dirt. The complete exhaust system is fairly new. The Kelsey Hayes wire wheels and Coker Tires are in excellent condition including the spare. Mechanically, the power windows, power top and power seats all operate very well. There are no oil leaks of any kind underneath. The car runs and drives out very well. The carburetor was just rebuilt and it runs and idles like a Swiss watch! Electrically, the clock is the only thing currently not working. All interior lights work along with the instrument panel lights. All exterior lights are working as they should. There are three large totes of spare parts, some NOS in boxes, that will be included with the sale. All original owner's manuals, shop manuals and receipts are included.*** FINANCING AVAILABLE *** SHIPPING AVAILABLE *** CAR LOCATED OFFSITE
