was a passenger car produced by the Buick division of General Motors.
The model was made in six production runs. In each run, the car design
varied dramatically due to changing technology and tastes, as well as
new standards implemented over the years.
For the 1962 model year, the
Buick Skylark became a model in its own right, instead of being a
subseries of the Special. The 1962 model used the same basic sheet metal
as the 1961 models, but was available in two new body styles: a two-door
convertible coupe (shared with the Special and Special Deluxe models)
and a two-door (pillarless) hardtop that was unique to the Skylark.
