Nice car !


Is the transmission the 400 Turbo-Hydramatic?

or the 380?

or a 2-speed automatic?


Is the engine actually a Chevy 350,

or a Buick 350?


Does it have the Optional Full Guage Package,

or just the lights for Amp / Oil pressure / Temp ?


Where are you located  beyond the Area Code?


Does it have:

Cruise Control?

Power Front Disc Brakes (were not standard even with Power Brakes)?

Tilt / Telescope Steering Wheel?

In the absence of answers from the owner, I can answer a few of the questions. I owned a '72 that was nearly identical to this 30 years ago. They all had power tops, so there is nothing unusual about a power top in a 1970s Skylark convertible. This one has the disc brake emblem on the brake pedal, so we can assume the front brakes are discs. This one does not have a tilt steering wheel lever on the steering column so it is not a tilt wheel, and Buick never offered a telescopic wheel on its mid-size cars. The automatic transmission will be a three-speed transmission, not a two-speed. And I do see a power seat switch, which the seller does not mention. Engine should be a Buick 350, since Buick was still making its own 350 V-8 in 1971 and 1972.
