Vehicle Description

This vehicle is a 1964 Buick Skylark Coupe. I found it in the city of Orange, CA, sitting in a yard since 1979 with just over 55,000 on the odometer. The original 300ci motor was missing the carburetor, the intake manifold, and one of the heads. I took the car apart and sand blasted everything possible. The interior was all cracked and faded. After all the parts were sandblasted or cleaned they were painted and the assembly process began. The body and all the panels where straightened, primed and painted. The paint is a Porsche white (sandweiss) and was applied everywhere, the inner fenders, the engine bay, the trunk and then coated in 7 coated of clear (I used the entire product I bought). The bumpers are color matched, which adds to the clean line. All the side molding and nameplates were kept off the car. The grill and tail section are painted black, as well as the window trim. New front and rear windshields where install, the side glass is original. The underside was treated to undercoating before being placed back on the frame. Interior of the car was done in white; the dash was cleaned and painted. The original dash pad was beyond repair and finding one even in descent condition was not happening. I sand blasted the one I had, taking all the old foam off. Realizing that it looked cool I straighten it out a little and primed and painted it black. I installed a cd player, four speakers, a sub; a four hundred watt amp runs everything nicely. The steering wheel, center console and floor shifter were taken from the wildcat. The car had a bucket option with a really rare center console, but the seats were gone when I found it. I found seats out of a 97 Camaro, kept the original rear seat and had everything re-upholstered in white vinyl with blue stitching to match the carpet and door panels. Original style and rubberized sound deadening was used on the floor and roof. The motor along with the transmission was pulled from a 1965 Buick Wildcat. After taking the motor out and having taken the heads and oil pan off, I learned it had been bored over .30 and that all the cylinder walls were in good shape, compression was proper. A mild cam (from TA performance) was installed along with a set of their headers, specific to the motor and frame of the car. I cleaned everything and painted the motor red. The exhaust is 2-? inch all the way to a set of 50 series Flowmaster mufflers. The exhaust was installed nice and tight to the body so that it cannot be seen easily and exists at the rear axle, that was all painted black. I had a transmission shop look the transmission over, they installed new seals and gaskets, they were not needed but I wanted new ones. I cleaned and then painted the transmission a shade of aluminum. The motor was installed using factory plates and motor mounts that were re-rubberized by Steele Rubber Products. An open-air filter was installed on top of the factory carburetor; a mechanic rebuilt it. A new water pump was also put in place and a seven blade fan to make sure we don\'t make a mess of things, after doing so I realized that a four core radiator would be more fitting to help keep things cool. The car was then set on 17x8in and 17x9in rims. A master cylinder and proportioning valve where installed along with a disc brake conversion up front and 2 inch drop spindles with new springs, new drums and pads out back. A drive shaft was found, balanced and installed but the original non-posi rear end was kept. I installed a beefy 1-1/4 inch anti-sway bar in the front and anti-hop bars in the rear. A video of the car can be seen at http://youtu.be/KRSY2k0JbwY. Please no low-ball offers. This is one of those rare opportunities, so if you want a car that is not like all the rest then this is a car for you. THIS CAR IS BEING SOLD AS-IS.
