  • Restored example of Buick’s low-production, top-of-the-line, mid-century convertible
  • One of only 1,690 model 76X Skylark Anniversary Convertibles produced for 1953
  • Nut-and-bolt restoration in 2011 by Xcentric AutoSports of Ontario, Canada
  • Restored to factory specification, including respray, rebuilding various mechanical components, replacing the interior, installing a new top, re-chroming trim pieces, and much more
  • Finished in correct Osage Cream over white leather with black inserts
  • Powered by Buick’s first modern V-8 engine, displacing 322 ci and producing 188 hp
  • Based on the premium Series-70 Roadmaster chassis but with a look all its own, including no “ventiports”—a Buick signature styling cue—on the front fenders
  • Standard equipment beyond anything previously offered by Buick, including power steering, power brakes, and Dynaflow automatic transmission
  • Rides on chrome wire wheels with wide whitewall tires
  • Includes invoices and other paperwork for the 2011 restoration, reproduction period-style owner’s documentation, and a shop manual
  • Roadmaster Skylark Anniversary Convertibles remain highly collectible due to their low production numbers and unique bodywork
