1961: Buick announces the Skylark
After hours: Limited Edition Buick Skylark (ad from 1961)
When day is done and your Skylark calls, get set for wonderful things. The minute you escape into its magic world, you’re free of the bonds of the ordinary.

Buick announces the Skylark Convertible! (1962)
Exhilarating as the first, fresh breath of spring — the daydreamy new Skylark convertible. Buick’s happy-medium-size version of top-down adventure surrounds you with a luxurious vinyl interior. Front bucket seats. Automatic top.
And how this light-hearted beauty moves! With its flashing 190-h.p. aluminum Skylark V-8 engine with a 4-barrel carburetor. And its choice of standard 3-speed transmission, optional Dual-Path Turbine Drive or floor-mounted 4-speed synchromesh stick shift.

We said our Skylark might just be the perfect car for you. (1980)
We didn’t realize how many of you there are. A little over a year ago, when our new Skylark made its debut, we knew it had all the things it needed to be a very popular item.
Front wheel drive. Clean, classy lines. Impressive mileage. Lots of room.
The 1983 Buick Skylark
Can you find the economy car in this picture? As unlikely as it seems, you’re looking at it. That stylish Buick Skylark.
For, in spite of its good looks, comfortably appointed interior and generous room for five, Skylark definitely falls into the economy category. As far as mileage estimates go. (Estimated highway: 42; EPA estimated MPG: 27)
But, between fill-ups, you’ll probably completely forget that Skylark is an economy car. You see, one of the nicest things about the economy car in our picture is that nobody pictures it as an economy car. Go see the 1983 Buick Skylark at your Buick dealer’s now. Buckled up, of course.
Use estimated MPG for comparison. Your mileage may differ depending on speed, distance, weather. Actual highway mileage lower. Some Buicks are equipped with engines produced by other GM divisions, subsidiaries, or affiliated companies worldwide. See your Buick dealer for details.
