'87 Turbo "T"

What a complete shitshow!!
Jul 28, 2020
Putting my 1972 Buick Skylark Custom for sale. Need to free up some garage space. Lifelong CO car. Originally a 350 car. Asking 13k OBO.

I have put a good amount of work into upgrading(a bit) and trying to bring it a bit more into modern times. Body will need some TLC but not a rust bucket. Will need new lower fender patches. Floor and trunk are solid. Core support is also very solid. AC car however, I removed it. Still have all of the parts to reinstall.

Interior is in good shape. No cracks in dash pad. Everything works. Radio, clock, rear defroster, & map light. Has front bench seat that will need to be recovered and new foam. Headliner is in great shape. Rear seat & tray are in great shape. Door panels are in great shape. Driver side will need a new armrest pad. Carpet is in good/decent shape.

New vinyl on roof. Only two minor holes needed to be filled in. Roof & lower window area by trunk are solid. Roof is completely rust free.

I have documentation from Sloan/Longway. I also have found one of the build sheets. Have the dyno numbers from the build as well. I also have the original temp tag from 1972. Also have the GM service manuals & the assembly manual. I’m sure I missed something but I think I’ve covered most of it. I have all of the paperwork, build receipts, & can answer any questions.

Serious inquiries only & I don’t need any help selling. DM me for more info. Have 30-40 pics but with the server issues I can't load here.
