I’m not sure what was more delightful to me on this gorgeous February 18th…the warm sunny 21 degrees in Boulder Colorado, the mountains, or this dazzling white 1965 Buick Skylark I found while running some errands.
As you can see this one really shone and stood out amongst the crowd in this parking lot.
The Skylark is all chromed up and sparkling bright! It has so many unique chrome features that you will soon see close up in greater detail.
So, where does one start?
Well lets take a look at this wonderful chrome boat tail very similar to the one we saw on that 1973 Buick Riviera seen in Toronto. Spread those wings and fly! Nothing like a chrome bumper but this one is just wild.
Those chrome strips look so cool intermingled between the red of the tail lights.
Next lets take a look down the side of this popular Buick from the 1960s. Look at that side view mirror, they have gone to the trouble of stamping the Buick logo right into the chrome, unbelievable. Today, they would probably just slap a sticker on and call it a day. This is what Endangered Cars is all about – the pride once put into the manufacturing of cars, and just how shockingly different the admirable quality is in the final product.
Here’s a close side angle view of the front bumper. That’s some shine. Just look at the beak on this baby! I can only imagine the kind of dent this bumper would carve into today’s cars. Love the chrome Skylark badge on the side, simply incredible.
Here’s another angle of that front end.
Until today, I had completely forgotten about these old triangular front windows that you could just push out a touch for a fresh breeze. Amazing…so cool! I can’t help but think these were quite popular back in the days when smoking was also more popular.
And now for more chrome, what a solid rear bumper. Just and incredible looking shape to the back.
And here we have a very proud Buick logo on the rear bumper. Unreal. So much care went into this striking 1965 Buick Skylark.
Lets turn it around and look at the front.
Now, for something completely different, lets take a look from the side view. I’m kind of kicking myself for not moving my blue Mazda 3 in the background, but I was blind in awe. Although, it does provide some nice contrast.
So much chrome up front, great looking grill.
Now this is one simple dashboard. Not too many distractions in those days. Love that 4-speed stick.
And finally, another side view this time from the left hand side.
And so…there you have it a 1965 Buick Skylark in fantastic condition!
