1976 Buick Skylark.jpg

Buick Skylark (X-body). 1975–9 (prod. n/a). 2-, 3- and 4-door sedan. F/R, 231 in³ (V6 OHV), 250 in³ (I6 OHV), 260, 301, 305, 350 in³ (V8 OHV). Initially two- and three-doors were called Skylark, though all Apollos became Skylarks in 1976. Essentially another Chevrolet Nova (1975–9) clone, rebodied from previous generation, but with Camaro suspension, which meant better handling and ride. Buick V6 eventually replaced Chevy six, proving slightly more reliable, though a fairly average 1970s’ American car.
