1953 Buick Skylark

The 1953 Buick Skylark convertible was the centerpiece of Buick's 50th Anniversary. The Skylark came with standard equipment beyond anything previously offered by Buick. Based on the premium-series Buick Roadmaster chassis, the Skylark had a look all of its own. The Kelsey-Hayes 40-spoke chrome wheels are acknowledged by collectors as among the most beautiful wheels to ever grace a production car. Powered by Buick's first modern V8 engine, this car's performance matched its racy appearance. Sales in 1953 totaled just 1,640 units, making the Skylark a rare and collectible car.
