In this corsair of the highway you live a motoring life like nothing you ever knew before-feel joyously free as the winged creature that gave its name to this Buick. The 1953 Buick Skylark Convertible (Model 76X) is styled for those whose motoring tastes call for extra flair, whose choice runs to slick beauty and rakish lines. Note the chrome plated wire wheels, each with 40 individual wire spokes. With the top up, the Skylark stands less than five feet high, luxuriously fitted with soft-tanned choice cowhide available in four handsome color combinations. This modern American sports car is in strictly limited production. On the Roadmaster chassis of 121 1/2-inch wheelbase, it has the phenomenal performance of the 188-horsepower V-8 Fireball Engine combined with Airpower carburetion, an 8.5 to 1 compression ratio, zeroback-pressure muffler, and the sensational new Twin-Turbine Dynaflow Drive. Added to these features as standard equipment, Skylark also has Power Brakes, Power Steering, Easy-Eye Glass, Selectronic Radio with electrically operated telescopic antenna, and white sidewall tires.
