Chassis #: A1055245

The Buick Skylark was a limited-production vehicle that made its second and final appearance in 1954, having been introduced one year earlier at the GM Motorama to celebrate Buick's 50th anniversary and the introduction of its new V-8 engine. Power was from a 322 cubic-inch V-8 engine with a four-barrel carburetor that was upgraded to 200 horsepower for 1954, and the styling was updated to coincide with the rest of the Buick lineup. Styling features included the trademark cutout wheel wells and side spear trim as seen on the original design, helping to set it apart from the lesser Buick models. The Skylark was given unique chromed rear tailfins that housed the taillights, a styling feature lifted from the Wildcat show car.

The 1954 Buick Skylark shared its chassis with the Century rather than that of the Roadmaster. This reduced the wheelbase 3.5 in. to 122 and the overall length by 5.3 inches. This resulted in an unusual weight savings of just 55 lbs. Dynaflow automatic transmission was standard, as was a power-operated top, power radio antenna, power windows, power steering, and power brakes. The unique wrap-around front windshield used for the first time on the 1953 Skylark reappeared on all Buicks for 1954. Just 836 were produced for 1954.

This particular Buick Skylark is finished in Malibu Blue (11) over blue leather (67) and is a Model 4667SX, the special Skylark Convertible. This car is no. 246 of the 836 produced. It was given a restoration by its previous owner prior to being purchased by its current caretaker in 2011. It has been stored in a climate-controlled facility and has never participated in shows or concours. It has never been driven on public roads.

This car received an AACA First Junior in 2009. That same year, it was the honored recipient of an AACA 1st Place National Award – the Bomgardner Award.
