1976 Skylark S/R

Recommended Posts

This past summer I bought a 1976 Buick Skylark S/R. It is mostly original Texas car which now has 39,000 miles. It is a very nice car to drive, has ps, pb, cruise and ac, bucket seats. In the late 90s I had a 76 Skylark coupe and sold it because it was too new to be an old car. I usually have 40s and 50s cars. I think this one will be a keeper.

Wow, that thing is NICE! And nicely equipped. If you are a Buick Club of America member, I would be pleased to have you write up an article about the car and send me more photos so we could put it in the magazine. I don't think we have ever published an article on a Skylark S/R.  They must be rare.

Sorry Pete, I am not a member of the Buick Club of America. I have not researched the production numbers for my car but I think it is fairly low. I have paperwork for it from when it was purchased new in New Mexico. The original Buick 8 track tape player is still in it and even the 8 track tape that was supplied by the dealer. I forgot to mention above that it has the V6, the famous oddfire engine.

The Buick Club of America Board of Directors won't allow me to print articles on non-members' cars, unfortunately. Sure is a nice one, and it has to be rare.

 

Just checked the production numbers for the 1976 Skylark S/R 2-dr. coupe: 3,880. Yes, that's a rare one.

Thank you Pete, the previous owner thought it might be  around 1700, but I think that would probably be for the hatchback.
