Subsequently, it became uglier down the line, right until the sixth and final generation, which shared many components with the era's Chevrolet Malibu, Pontiac Grand Am, and Oldsmobile Cutlass. Buick pulled the plug on it after the 1998 model year, and they do not seem interested in this nameplate anymore. But why would they, when they only sell crossovers in our market?
Now, that is a completely different topic unrelated to this story, which is dedicated to one interesting 1969 Buick Skylark Custom. Part of the second generation, it is in great condition all around, or so it seems anyway. It has a white exterior with a matching roof, a white cabin, and a 350-ci V8 under the hood, hooked up to an automatic transmission.
The 5.7-liter power unit was one of the three V8s available for the second-gen Skylark, with the other two having displacements of 6.6 (400 ci) and 7.5 (455 ci) liters. The base flavors of the car were offered with a 4.1-liter straight-six back then. The transmission options comprised one three-speed manual and two automatics with two and three forward gears.
Sporting many things in common with a plethora of other GM-made vehicles, including the Chevy El Camino, Pontiac GTO, and Oldsmobile Cutlass, the second-generation Buick Skylark is regarded by many as one of the best-looking, together with its predecessor. If you agree and consider lending some of that unused garage space to one such model, then this white copy is worth checking out.
Said to live in Oregon, it has 7,837 miles (12,612 km) under its belt at the time of cataloging, and since it looks good all around, it likely underwent restoration. Unfortunately, the Garage Kept Motors ad, which you can access here, doesn't reveal anything about the potential work, and it doesn't say anything else about it. Well, make that anything bar a major detail, which is the asking price.
The vehicle can become yours in exchange for $24,900, which is $200 short of the 2024 Malibu's MSRP. That kind of money can also buy you a Trax small crossover or a Trailblazer, but neither is as cool as this Skylark. You will have to cough out in excess of $31,000 for a new Camaro, and this makes this Buick even more appealing if you ask us. Do you agree?
