1968 Buick Skylark Custom (LARKIN)
Last updated Feb 17, 2011
imported last year for my wife. low mileage (59,000) californian car. once landed inspection lead to a quick body off rebuild to correct a chassis straighten job done at some stage of her life. New steering and Suspension went in with 3 inch lowering springs, 20 inch wheels, body left untouched (for now) new Sony mp3 player intalled hidden in glove box with 6x9's in the parcel shelf Amp / 12" Sub in trunk. engine and trans left origonal appart from installing a Pertronix ignitor II and flame-thrower coil kit. awesome cruiser!
numbers matching Buick 350/2 and ST300 2 speed auto. Dynoed to set mixtures/timing for our crap fuel and with some playing returned a very laughable 104hp ATW but with a whopping 503ft lbs of torque from nothing makes for a great cruiser.
only mods are 3 inch lowering springs and 20 inch wheels - robbed off my Impala while it sits patiently waiting for me to finish it! Pertronix electronic ignition (to help burn the crap they call petrol) and 2 1/2 inch X pipe exhaust system with 2 chamber flowmaster mufflers. hidden head deck install
