The 1967 Buick Skylark is one of the many great classic cars and when fully restored is definitely a showstopper. First produced in 1953, the car stayed in production for an impressive 46 years, during which time the overall design changed dramatically.
Keeping a car updated
Changing technology and fashion are a big influencer in the evolution or a car’s design. Everything from the interior to the exterior shape can be changed, modified and restyled to suit the modern trends. Like many cars that have survived through the ages, the Skylark was no exception.
Features of the 1967 Buick Skylark
By 1964, the Skylark was running in the same group as the Oldsmobile F-85, the Pontiac Tempest and the Chevrolet Chevelle due to its newer intermediate-sized chassis.
The car we feature here today is from 1967 and would originally feature the 225 cubic inch, 3.7 liter V6 engine – all other models, excluding the 4-door hardtop, came with a 300 cubic inch V8.
When looking back on old classics, Buick cars make a number of appearances, the Skylark whoever is somewhat anonymous amongst the thousands of movie cars. There are debates over a background appearance in the 2013 film Blood Ties and the 2003 film Uptown Girls, neither of which have been confirmed.
However one sighting we do know for sure is in the 2014 movie Beatles.
Why this car is such a favorite
Given what we know about the 1967 Buick Skylark, it’s clear to see it wasn’t top of the range compared to its competition. Produced as a cut above the Buick Special, the Skylark was a more luxury car for its time and has definitely left a mark in the world.
50 years on, the Skylark is still being lovingly restored by car enthusiasts all around the world and is being displayed at a wide variety of local car show.
