1968 Buick Skylark GS Additional Info:

1968 buick GS350 w/455 conv. 400trans ps manual drums. Red/black
The good:
Fresh 455 conv done in aug of 19. Rebuiltinternals with a howards cam. Aluminum radiator, dui hei dist 750 quick fuel carb. New fuel sending unit. New master cylinder. Brand new cooper tires. New front drums, huband bearings. All headlights and tailights work. Non original paint is a 3 footer. Looks decent and shines. I have both hood spears in great shape. Front seats seem to have been redone before me along with the carpet. Headliner and back seat are in good condition as well.
The OK:
Bumpers and chrome have signs of wear. Dont know if they can be cleaned up or need to be rechromed. Dash pad is good but metal face and cluster could be freshened up. The paintlike i said above shines nice but you will see imperfections with a closer eye. There are some bubbles forming on the bottom of the fenders and back end of the 1/4s. The metal behind it and around appear to be solid. The doors and fenders need some minor alignment. The drivers door handle is a bitch to push in but has never failed me. The passenger window seems to be the wrong glass as it doesnt sit well when the door is shut. The door panels are decent but could use some love. The windlace is hanging down above both rear side windows. The rear int lights need to be screwed in and needs covers for them. The radio is missing. The speedo and odo are inop. Have not worked since i purchased it. I dont know if itsa bad speedo cable or if the cluster is bad. There is an exhaust leak on the left side where the manifold bolts to the down pipe. Will need new mufflers due to the crappy 350 that was in there. Mufflers are blown out. Pipes are good. Just terrible down pipes and mufflers.
I didnt list a bad because i really dont see anything bad on this car. To me this is a car that an avg person could tinker with and havea presentable local cruiser for avg money. Its not going to win any awards but will still turnheads.
I will be able to answer any questions to the best of my abilities. Happy bidding and please only bid if you are serious!!
