I owned a 65 Buick Special convertible back in the late 70's while in high school. Virtually identical to your Skylark. Beautiful car and a real conversation piece back then. It was the go-to car for crusin' on Friday and Saturday night.  It was always trouble free and never let me down.  I sure do miss it.

Good move, restoring that Skylark.  It is quite pretty in that colour. 


My dad bought a 1964 hardtop, 300-4V, new; it was white over red, with a white bucket seat interior.  It was also his first car with A/C.  No power steering, but he was plenty strong to manhandle the wheel.


A neighbor had a 1965 Skylark convertible, black over yellow, with a black interior.  It was pretty cool, also.
