1966 Buick Skylark

The 1966 Buick Skylark was an intermediate model that featured a lower body molding that ran the full-length, simulated vent grids on the front fenders and wheelhouse kick-ups. The name 'Skylark' and emblems appeared on the fear fenders. Inside, notchback seats were standard in the front of the four-door hardtop and optional on all other models. Bucket seats were optional, as were headrests. Body styles included a coupe, sport coupe, hardtop sedan, and a convertible.

Standard equipment included custom-padded seat cushions, glove compartment lights, courtesy lamps, ashtray, and Deluxe specific wheel covers.

For those seeking more performance, buyers could purchase the Skylark Gran Sport. They were equipped like the Skylark, with GS emblems on the instrument panel, Gran Sport nameplates on the grille and deck, and a 401 cubic-inch V8. However, the engine was listed as a 400-CID engine, to get passed GM's restriction on over 400-CID engines in midsize bodies.

The GS models were void of hood ornaments, the interiors were all-vinyl, bright simulated air scoops, side paint stripes, and a blacked-out grille.
