Up for sale now in our Houston showroom is this 1971 Buick Skylark Convertible. The Buick Skylark model was made in six production runs, for 46 years, over which the cars design varied dramatically due to changing technology and tastes and new standards implemented over the years. Created to mark Buicks 50th anniversary, the Roadmaster Skylark joined the Oldsmobile 98 Fiesta and Cadillac Series 62 Eldorado as top-of-the-line, limited-production specialty convertibles introduced in 1953 by General Motors to promote its design leadership. This second-generation Skylark convertible has been transformed to look like the ultimate Buick, the GSX. The GSX was Buicks answer to Pontiacs GTO Judge, Oldsmobiles 4-4-2 W-30, and Plymouths Hemi Cuda. This Skylark is equipped with the same 455 CiD V8 that came in the GSX that has been rebuilt with all new internals, balanced & blueprinted & features Fastlane Motorsports fuel injection system that has been tuned to the car. That monster of a V8 has only 2200 miles on it since the rebuild and it is paired to a 3-speed automatic transmission that has also been rebuilt and it shifts smooth and gives the car a sweet driving experience. The transmission has a stall speed torque converter installed on it for quicker launches. The car is shown in very nice yellow paint with matte black stripes on the side & of course the GSX hood with the stripes streaking down it. The body is in very good condition, straight & true. The bumpers, grill, trim, & emblems are also all in great shape. The car sits on its factory Buick 14-inch two-tone wheels wrapped in BF Goodrich tires with plenty of tread left on them. The convertible top new to the car, the car does not have the hydraulics hooked up so the top is currently manually operated, but can be converted back later if desired. The interior has been recently redone with the black vinyl seats (very comfortable), door panels, carpet, & dash are in like new condition. A small gauge cluster under the dash holds 3 gauges for engine management (oil pressure, battery voltage, & water temp). This GSX has a very cool feature called electronic exhaust cut outs that allows you to open the exhaust at the headers with the push of a button you will hear each & every power stroke of the engine when you want some noise! When you would like a quieter ride, you push the button again and it will close and flow out the tailpipes. If the car was not loud enough when you wanted it to be you also have a rocking stereo system throughout the car, featuring Kenwood CD player head unit that controls the JL Audio 1000 watt 5-channel amplifier that powers all the mid/high range speakers in the cabin of the car while also pushing the two 12-inch JL 12W3 subwoofers in the trunk. The car has undergone some recent service maintenance items have been performed on the car such as; new fan clutch, new 4-core aluminum radiator, new water pump, new control arms bushings, new idler arm, center link, tie rod ends, new heavy-duty clutch, new bands, resealed rear differential, new pinion axle seals, new axle bearings, new radiator & heater hoses, small items as well, & much much more. Other notable features include; power brakes, power steering, CD player with custom sound system, leather interior, seat belts, & more.
