The 1953 Skylark, was built as a limited edition (1690 cars) to commemorate Buick's 50th Anniversary. Each Skylark was custom built to order with the owner's name, Bob Hope, embedded in the steering wheel. The Skylark was only available as a convertible with a design that spoke of class and performance. This is arguably one of the most collectible Buicks ever.
Here is the 1953 Buick Skylark Convertible owned by Bob Hope. Pulling up to the Palm springs Country club in this back in the day must have turned some heads. A great year for this car.
