Vehicle Description

1969 Buick Skylark GS California

Up for sale is this beautiful 1969 Buick GS California Edition. This is a pretty rare car with only 3574 made, I believe.
This car has enjoyed a driver quality restoration. The biggest opportunity for improvement on the car would be its paint and interior pieces. In some spots of the body, the paint is fairly thin. Additionally, there are imperfections here and there. There are a few interior pieces where the glue is starting to separate.
The car had a lot of work completed around 2015-2017. I have binder full receipts that indicate that. I did not do the restoration on the car. Most, if not all of the work, was done in Arkansas.
This is a true 1969 Buick GS California Edition w/ the Ram Air Hood. With that said, there have been some modifications to the car.
The car has the 350CID engine with 10:1 compression and a .507 lift cam. It is paired with the TH350 transmission with a shift kit installed. It has a 3.42 ratio positrac reared and differential out of a 71 Olds Cutlass with a TA Performance rear end gridle cover. It has a stall in the 2300-2800RPM range, new rear axles, new fuel tank and sending unit, new A/C components with MSD ignition.
The car originally came with a bench seat but that was traded out for a set of bucket seats and a Chevelle center console. It looks significantly better in my opinion.
This car runs and drives very nicely. It has more than enough power and turns heads everywhere it goes. My favorite thing about this car is the fact that a lot of people do not know what it is. It is a unique car with a cool history and plenty of talking points.
This car comes with a binder full of receipts and a photo album showing the restoration process to an extent. Clean Arkansas title in hand.
