The GR Auto Gallery is pleased to present this 1966 Buick Skylark GS for your consideration. Powering this Buick is believed to be the original 445 wildcat V8 motor paired to a smooth-shifting automatic transmission. This Skylark comes in a beautiful bright red paint job complemented by a clean black interior and matching vinyl top. This Buick has had a complete body-off restoration including the rebuild of the motor and transmission about 6,000 miles ago. This Skylark is a great weekend cruiser and has only been driven on nice days. So if you are in the market for a clean Wildcat car this is the ride for you. Please call or email us for more information.

The 400 was replaced for 1970 with the Buick 455 cu in (7.5 L) V8 engine, used in the GS 455. The base model was rated at 350 bhp (355 PS; 261 kW) and 510 lb⋅ft (691 N⋅m; 71 kg⋅m) at 2800 rpm of torque. In the optional Stage 1 trim equipped with a single 4-barrel Rochester Quadrajet carburetor was rated at 360 bhp (365 PS; 268 kW) SAE gross at 4600 rpm and 510 lb⋅ft (691 N⋅m; 71 kg⋅m) of torque at 2800 rpm.8 As with all American engines produced prior to the 1972 model year, these were SAE gross ratings, which are generally significantly higher than SAE net ratings and are not indicative of what actual production engines produce in their "as installed" condition (with all engine accessories and full exhaust system in place). The fastest magazine test results from this period were obtained by MOTOR TREND Magazine, which managed to extract a 13.38 ET at 105.5 mph from their 3,810 pound GS Stage 1 coupe test car. Using Hale's Trap Speed formula, this result indicated actual "as installed" peak HP of approximately 360 SAE Net (ironically the same as its advertised Gross Figure, meaning this engine was very conservatively rated for that time period).
