Description

STRONG MERLIN 540 V8, 5-SPEED MANUAL, PWR STEER/4-WHEEL DISC, DUAL EXHAUST, COOL

A fully custom-built 1966 Buick Skylark coupe with a screaming Merlin 540 V8 motor, five-speed stick, and four-wheel disc brakes. Oh yes, this is a restomod and pro touring machine that's built to look as mean as the motor. So when you see a price this affordable, you know it might not be around long enough for you to read the rest of this description.

The paint's satin finish gives this a more modern and meaner attitude. It almost feels like this car has gotten in a few street fights during its day. Taking the shine away creates a new form of distinction. It highlights all of the design lines. Some of these were created by Buick fifty years ago, like the full-length body crease; and others are part of the new performance image, like the custom cowl hood. And speaking of the hood, take some time to notice the darker paint applied there. This not only covers the front area, but also detail lovers will notice it flows to the roof pillars to create a subtle two-tone effect. The full grayscale package means the shining chrome bumpers and upgraded 17-inch Boyd Coddington polished alloys fit into the car's look even while providing an interesting contrast to the paint's matte finfish.

The moment you open the door, you see more investment integrating the right modern pieces. The front seats are borrowed from a Cadillac CTS-V. So not only are they leather with a comfortable suede-like insert, but also they are power adjustable and offer far superior bolstering than anything that came out of the '60s. And the full dark package feels right with tis car's attitude. Your left hand will love the grip of the sports steering wheel, and your right one may never want to leave the cue ball shifter. The dash is a custom layout that contains a full white face gauge package, including speedo and tach. They all provide crystal-clear and complete info, which is just another indication that there is something really special under the hood.

Sure, there's some shine in that engine bay, but one look at that V8, and you really know it's ready for asphalt combat. It's a 540 cubic-inch V8 from the wizards at Merlin. It's a big investment on performance, but it's worth it for a truly hardy setup. This has also has been further enhanced with more go-fast goodies like aluminum heads, an Edelbrock intake, and a Quick Fuel carburetor. Plus, it's backed up by reliable components like an aluminum radiator, electric fan, Holley electric fuel pump, steel braided lines, and full MSD 6AL ignition. Those headers also add to the performance, and at the same time, contribute to the fury that barks from the FlowMaster dual exhaust. Best of all you can control this intimidating sound and stay in the powerband as long as you like thanks to the complete control provided by the TKO five-speed manual transmission. Making sure this total package hooks up with the pavement is a stout Ford 9-inch rear end. Complete with upgraded suspension components (w/air ride rear,) power steering, and the grip of drilled & slotted four-wheel disc brakes w/ZR-rated tires, you're looking at a muscle machine that can literally run circles around many modern cars.

While the sale comes complete with the cool/classic owner's manual, you really know the full appeal lies in the big $$$$ spent on turning this Skylark into a bird of prey on the streets. It's a mean-looking and fast-driving total package that is surprisingly affordable, call today!
