Skylark Convertible
Designer: Harley Earl
Chassis Num: 17057172
Sold for $115,500 at 2017 Bonhams.
This Buick Skylark was given a no-expense-spared, nut-and-bolt rotisserie restoration. Since the work was completed, it has been driven a few hundred miles. It is finished in Mandarin Red with a white convertible top and a two-tone red and white interior. The Fireball V8 engine displaces 322 cubic-inches and is fitted with a single Four-Barrel carburetor. There is a Twin Turbine Dynaflow automatic transmission and four-wheel hydraulic drum brakes.

This Skylark has appeared at numerous events including the 2008 Greenwich Concours d'Elegance, where it took home an award for being the most outstanding open car in its class.
