Was this sale a market indicator or auction fever carried to an extreme?
There were just 836 Buick Skylarks produced in 1954. Each came fully equipped with leather interior, full power equipment, special ornamentation, and open wheel wells with Kelsey-Hayes wire wheels. This low-mileage 1954 Buick Skylark received a complete professional restoration, which was completed in 2003. It is finished in its original color, Condor Yellow.
This beautiful Skylark has received numerous awards, including “Best of Show” at the National Buick Skylark meet at the Petersen Museum in 2004. It was also judged a new “Gold Senior” at the Buick Club of America event in Dallas, Texas, where it scored 392 out of 400 total points. It is considered by many to be one of the finest in the country.
