[column grid=”2″ span=”1″] The Buick Skylark first appeared as a limited production model in 1953 and 1954 and was then discontinued and disappeared from the market. It would reappear in 1961 and serve as the basis for the mighty Buick GS line. 1970 saw the peak of Skylark performance with the two-barrel 350 gaining 30 bhp to 260 bhp, and the four-barrel gaining 5 bhp to 285 bhp. Buick was selling well at fifth in the nation during the 1960s. In 1970 Buick continued the Skylark line as the lower priced bread and butter model that came equipped with muscle.
