Hemmings Find of the Day – 1968 Buick Skylark

Published in blog.hemmings.com

Restored 1968 Buick Skylark for sale on Hemmings.com. From the seller’s description:

This is probably one of the finest ’68 Skylarks on the Earth. I started with a 40,000 mile car and spent about $30,000 recreating an exact replica of a car my grandfather purchased new and I rode in as a little kid down to the smallest detail. Some of my earliest memories were riding in his car. The car is finished in Aqua Mist poly with a black interior, 350 2 barrel, Powerglide, power steering, AC and rear defroster. His car had dogdish hubcpas, a St. Christopher on the carpet tunnel and static straps hanging from the rear bumper. This car is a dead ringer for the original one.So that is the explanation for why I spent so much money making this car so nice. So what this means for you is you have the chance to buy what is likely the nicest example of a ’68 Skylark to be had. The car was completely stripped down and disassembled just short of doing a frame off. This car was originally a silver blue and I changed it to the Aqua Blue Poly to match his car exactly. The motor and ttrans were just freshened with new seals and freeze out plugs, etc. as they only had 40,000 miles on them. The car received: all new brake system, front suspension, rubber seals all over, replating of bumpers, 7.75 x 14 tires, gas tank cleanout and new sender, radiator boil out and repair, AC work to make it all functional, on and on to make it like new. The interior was in great original condition and just required a new carpet and a recovering of the front seat with correct black vinyl to exactly match the back seat and door panels. The car was completed in early 2012 and is very well sorted out. I have never had the car judged anywhere but I bet it could win an AACA senior award. Additionally I have a set of four Buick road wheels that were on the car I started with, they will need some light work. I also have a set of four full size hubcpas if you dont like the poverty caps. You will not be disappointed with this car.
