RealRides of WNY - 1967 Skylark

This 1967 Buick Skylark is just one of the many mid-sized cars the Flint manufacturer was offering 53 years ago. In one brochure, actress Delores Wettach told us “I’d put my dog in it and go for long rides in the country… anywhere. Or better yet, I’d use it to take my mother to Alaska in.” Model Penny Ashton was featured singing the praises of the low-end Buick Special (“[it] would make anyone look good.”)while model/actress Jean Shrimpton said of the high-performance GS 400 “…it’s very fine and very young, it’s quite casual and relaxed.” Actor Lloyd Bridges (bottom photo) was employed to show off the Skylark’s interior. We saw today’s RealRide a couple of summers ago at the Quaker Days Car Show in Orchard Park.
