Collectible Classic: 1953-54 Buick Skylark
Offered only as a convertible, the Skylark was designed to exude an aura of power and unrestrained elegance, with its low windshield and open wheel wells.
In the early 1950s, Buick dazzled the automotive world with two concept cars, the XP-300 and the LeSabre, low-slung two-seaters that pointed to the future. Inspired by the tremendous reaction to his “dream cars,” Harley Earl conjured up the Skylark to celebrate Buick’s golden anniversary in 1953. The ne plus ultra of the Roadmaster series, it was essentially a handbuilt factory custom.
