This 1962 Buick Skylark has a very straight body, and all the glass and crome is very good. It has surface rust in side do to the wet wether we have here in the Seattle area. It was left parked outside with a side window down before I got it.

I listed it last december on an ebay auction, but bids were not high enough so I decided to keep it.

Now unfortionally I want to sell it. I have spent more time and money on it, but for the good.

I bought a very good red interior for it. (orig. from a 62, so it is old, but pretty good) I also bought brand new red carpet, and had the door panels repaired with red carpet.

I started repainting the interior red, but only got one door done. So sad to say, the painting needs to be done on the interior. Big job, and  I lots interest and don't have the time to finish. So I'm calling uncle before I get too deep into it.

There are no holes in the floor boards. I rust proofed the interior bottem with pro 15. To stop and seal the serface rust. Overall it looks great and makes a nice finish.

There is some rust in the body, but not allot. The paint is daul, and will need repainting of course.

The motor starts and runs very good. The sell also includes a rebuild 2 speed transmission. The one that is in it works great in forward, but slips in reverse.

 

Overall, feel it is a great car to restore and would make a very nice daily driver while you restore it.

Buick Encore takes a hit of Mokka to tackle Dakar

Wed, 03 Sep 2014 07:58:00 EST

There are many vehicles we'd consider taking racing. Even on a cross-country rally as punishing as the Dakar. But a Buick Encore? That's not one that would enter our motorsports-based consciousness. Yet it's basically what General Motors is entering in the South American rally raid this year, and you're looking at it.
Unveiled at the Moscow Motor Show, this rally machine is based on (or at least billed as) an Opel Mokka - the name that GM's European brand applies to the vehicle Americans know as the Encore, Buick's subcompact crossover. Only it's obviously been extensively modified. It's got a ten-inch raised suspension, a 137-gallon fuel tank, carbon-fiber bodywork and... hold on, we're sure we're missing something here. Oh, right: a 6.2-liter V8 kicking out 340 horsepower and 487 pound-feet of torque to all four wheels through a six-speed sequential gearbox.
In other words, this is not the same Encore (or Mokka) you can pick up at your local Buick, Opel or Vauxhall dealership. It's not even close. It's not even recognizable as such, really. It was unveiled alongside a more sedate Opel Mokka Moscow Edition and a slew of other local debuts for the Opel brand that you can read more about in the (translated and original) Russian press release below.

GM warning 800,000 owners that their cars may need oil changes more frequently than they say

Fri, 05 Apr 2013 18:32:00 EST

The days of changing your engine oil every 3,000 miles are long gone thanks to most cars having automatic oil monitoring systems, but about 800,000 General Motors vehicles apparently have incorrect monitoring software that is leading to premature engine component wear. According to Autoweek, certain 2010-2012 Buick LaCrosse, Regal, Chevrolet Equinox and GMC Terrain models equipped with 2.4-liter four-cylinder engines could be going too long in between oil changes resulting in a higher-than-normal number of warranty claims for the engine's balance chain. The balance chain links the balance shaft to the crankshaft, and a worn one can produce higher noise levels.
As a fix, GM dealers will be reprogramming the software for the monitors in an effort to reduce the interval between oil changes, which varies based on driving habits and conditions. Through February 2015, the software update will be done at no cost to vehicle owners, but since this is not a recall, after that point, it will be up to the discretion of dealers as to whether or not they will charge for the service. What isn't immediately clear is whether GM plans on giving assistance to out-of-warranty customers who are experiencing engine issues from the worn chain.

Buick Envision to go on sale in third quarter of 2015

Mon, 06 Oct 2014 14:14:00 EST

Following an earlier concept and successive teasers, Buick revealed the new Envision crossover a little over a month ago. The thing is, it was launched in China, for China. The question, then, is whether it will make the jump to the North American market. And the answer is: quite possibly.
According to division sales chief Duncan Aldred in speaking to Edmunds, Buick is looking into the prospect of bringing the Envision to the US: "We can't confirm anything, but clearly it is a very nicely designed and executed product that is very much a Buick," said Aldred.
If and when the compact crossover would appear in US showrooms, it would slot in between the smaller Encore and the larger Enclave. It would likely be offered in front-wheel drive, all-wheel drive and mild hybrid configurations. Sources expect it to arrive in the third quarter of 2015 as a competitor to the likes of the Mercedes GLA, Lexus NX and Lincoln MKC.
