February Car of the Month

Car of the Month 1954 Buick Skylark Convertible

● Engine – 321 CID

● Horsepower – 200 hp V8 Fireball engine

● Transmission – Twin-Turbine Dynaflow auto

● Curb weight – 4,430 lbs

● 0-60 time – 12.3 seconds

● ¼ mile time – 18.7 seconds

● Top speed – 104 mph

● Number built – 836

● MSRP price – $5,000.00

Only 836 Skylarks (all of them convertibles) were produced in 1954 and offered at the then-exorbitant price of $5,000.

This rare classic’s yellow color was a dramatic departure from the dark colors that typified cars from the mid-1940s to mid-’50s.

Designed by Harley Earl and chosen by GM to celebrate Buick’s 50th Anniver-sary, it was the first car with fins of a magnitude that sug-gested they would be around for a while.

Other features: 40 spoke Kelsey-Hayes wire wheels and all-leather upholstery accented with painted dash and chrome.
