This is a 1966 Buick Skylark Grand Sport that's been modified with a 396 big block and 4 speed M20 Muncie transmission. My uncle owned this car from 1973 through 2000 when I took ownership. When my uncle had the car he installed the big block, Muncie, and console from a 1967 Chevy Impala SS. He also replaced the bench seat with bucket seats from a 1968 Pontiac Bonneville. In 2007 I "freshened" the car up and did the following. The engine received all new seals, Melling oil pump, water pump, .....
fuel pump, Crane PowerMax cam & lifter, Trick Flow chromoly push rods, Crane valve springs, Harland Sharp roller rockers, Comp Cams double roller timing set, Edlebrock Torquer 2 manifold, Demon carburetor, Lokar throttle cable, MSD Pro-billet HEI distributor and ceramic coated headers. It's cooled by a Griffin radiator and a Spal fan with a Spal pwm controller. The transmission was also rebuilt with quality parts and a new Hurst shifter. Hays street/strip clutch kit and ARP bolts. A Ford 9" rear axle was installed with 3.73 posi traction differential and 11.5 disc brakes and new drive shaft. All new stainless fuel lines, brake lines and Pypes exhaust. Center Line Sundance Series Legend wheels. I also added power brakes with 12" rotors in the front and 11.5 in the rear, upgraded power steering box to a close ratio box and installed a steering column from a 1968 Olds 442 for safety. Hotchkis coil springs and all Moog front end joints. painless wiring harness. The interior received new carpet, seat belts, door gaskets and window felts. This car looks as it did in the 70's I have not done any body work. I kept my efforts to keeping the car looking as it did all these years while making it safer and more reliable to drive. Have many receipts. Also have trim pieces, extra trunk lid and other small parts.
