1978 Buick Skylark

For 1978, Buick produced 114,220 examples of the Skylark, most were fitted with the V-6 engine. Just 17,116 were equipped with a V-8. The Skylark was available as a coupe, sedan, or as a hatchback. The entry-level model was the 'S' version, and it was available only as a coupe. The S/R version of the prior years was replaced with the Custom Skylark as the luxury edition model.

Powerplant options included the standard 231 cu. in V-6 with two optional V-8s. The standard gearbox was a three-speed manual unit.

Styling remained mostly unchanged. Upfront, the grille was restyled very slightly with a pair of horizontal dividers bands to the vertical-bar pattern. In the back, the wraparound signal/parking lights were divided into three sections rather than two.

The Sport Package included black paint accents on the front grille and around the headlamps. It also added the black accents to the back window and side window frames. The Sport Package had ER78 x 14 blackwall steel-belted radials, a ride-handling suspension, four body color choices (silver, yellow, bright red, or dark gold), and black sport mirrors.
