One of the most stunning Harley Earl design exercises of all time, the 1953 Buick Skylark is one of the most legendary GM cars ever built. Part of Earl's "Triple Crown" of limited production, hand-built showcars for the public that were basically production versions of GM Motorama concept cars were produced to showcase GM's world leading designs. The "Triple Crown" consisted of the 1953 Cadillac Eldorado, the 1953 Oldsmobile Fiesta, and the 1953 Buick Skylark. Most consider the Skylark to be the best looking of the three. As Buick was 50 years old in 1953, the Skylark also served as a stunning anniversary special for the company. As an essentially factory-built custom, the Skylark had a number of firsts for Buick, many that were features first used on the Skylark and later introduced on regular production Buicks. Some examples include the first Buick V-8 engine; 12 Volt electrical system; cut-down door "sweep"; and more. The Roadmaster Skylark was one of the most expensive motorcars of its era with a price new of $5,000 which was $2,000 more than the more traditional 1953 Roadmaster. Even at this price, Buick was said to have lost thousands on each Skylark sold due to their essentially hand-built nature. Fenders, doors, and quarter panels were sectioned and modified by hand to create the perfect stance, along with a custom "chopped" and chromed convertible top frame, windshield, door glass, and specially constructed and lowered seats to compensate. The success of the Skylark was undoubtedly due to its numerous trendsetting features, such as V8 power, a 12-volt electrical system, full cutout wheel openings, and stylish "sweepspear" chrome body accents which would find their way onto future Buick models. Only 1,690 Roadmaster Skylark Convertibles were assembled for 1953; of which as few as only 100 are estimated to exist today meaning that examples today are highly sought after by some of the world??s most premier collectors.

We know that classic car financing can pose a unique challenge. Although a vintage or exotic car can be an excellent investment, some financial institutions attempt to apply standard ???used car??? rules for financing a classic car, which in many cases can make loan approval difficult.
We work closely with many banking institutions that understand and recognize the collector value of classic cars and view them as an investment, which allows us to help you get the financing you need so that you can have the car you have dreamed of.
