To Be OFFERED AT AUCTION WITHOUT RESERVE at RM Sothebys' Arizona event, 16 - 17 January 2020. Estimate:$100,000 - $130,000 Offered from the Roadmaster CollectionBeautifully restored; finished in Arctic WhiteOne of just 836 examples built for 1954AACA National First Senior award winner The Skylark concept was first displayed as a General Motors Motorama car in 1952. A limited-production version of the Skylark was offered the following year to celebrate Buicks 50th anniversary, joining the Oldsmobile Fiesta and Cadillac Eldorado. Affectionately known as the dream car Trifecta, these top-of-the-line 1953 models established GM as the styling leader for the 1950s. The Skylark was offered with a number of luxurious features as standard equipment, which led to its steep price tag and limited production with 1,690 produced in 1953. The 1954 Skylark offered a departure from its predecessor by introducing more of a performance element to the top-end luxury model. The aggressive styling shared attributes with the Wildcat II concept car, and the 200 hp V-8 OHV engine was placed in a Century chassis that was both shorter and lighter than the Roadmaster version. Skylark production was extremely limited in 1954, the final year of the model, with only 836 examples built.The 1954 convertible offered here is an exceptional example of what many consider Harley Earls finest production convertible design. Fully restored in a stunning shade of Arctic White with Matador Red wheel wells and matching red leather interior, it rides on Kelsey-Hayes 40-spoke wire wheels. The performance of the 200 hp Nailhead V-8 pairs perfectly with the smooth-shifting Dynaflow automatic transmission. Numerous factory power amenities add to an already impressive car. A wonderful example in every regard, this Skylark holds the distinction of earning its AACA National First Senior award in 2011.When it comes to mid-century American motoring, few carry the prestige of the Buick Skylark. Revered in the period for its dramatic styling, luxurious appointments, powerful engine, and limited production numbers, the Skylark remains a highly desirable and exceptionally collectable automobile that represents Americana at its very finest.To view this car and others currently consigned to this auction, please visit the RM website at rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/az20.
