1954 Buick Skylark



The 1954 Buick Skylark was radically restyled and featured elongated wheel cutouts with the interior of them being available in contrasting color to the body color. The trunk was sloped into a semi-barrel shape. Taillights were housed in large chromed fins that projected from the tops of the rear fenders.

The car was now based on the all-new, shorter Century/Special chassis and not the top-of-the-line Roadmaster chassis like the previous year.

Horsepower was improved to 200hp, as well as torque, which was rated at 309 lb-ft of torque.

With radical new styling and the car being based around what was perceived as a cheaper chassis, sales plummeted and the Skylark began its brief hiatus until 1961.
