1971 BUICK SKYLARK POST BODY SHELL
Permalink  
 


100% Rust free body shell from out west. This is a bare body shell and doors, with a clean title. You would need a donor car to complete this project, but this is the cleanest body I've seen in years. Original paint still on floors, cowl, etc.. Would be a beautiful post sleeper! $1500

Please call or text Eric for details. (234) 855-6670. Thank you!

Anyone know if a Skylark 4 door hardtop frame is the same length? There's a 29000 mile example for sale near me.

No such luck, the early a-bodies use the same frame, 2 and 4 door. The '68-'72 a-bodies grow 4 inches between the wheels for a a 4 door.

Damn. This 4 door would yield a ton of parts (with chrome that good I'd be converting a 71 to a 70:
Plus it has tilt and the gauge package with speed alert. Can't imagine many 4 doors had that
Not worth buying if the frame couldn't be used though.

I know of a few bare 2 dr. frames that could be used in conjunction with that 4dr.. that would make a killer donor car!

Very nice looking shell. One doesn't see nice rust-free metal around here. I always joke N.E.Ohio is the worst corrosive area in the nation. Around 1970 General Motors did a corrosive study and Youngstown was "ground zero" in the worst place in the United States. They had a 75 mile radius of Youngstown. Cleveland and Pittsburgh were in there also. Salt and pollution from the steel industry were some of the causes given. I live near the Lordstown GM Plant. Good luck with your sale. Ken

Just thinking out loud here... I wonder how hard it would be to cross the border into Canada with just a shell and paperwork?

Honestly, I don’t know.. I guess if I mailed the title so it could be transfered into your name, that would help. The car does have an unaltered vin tag that matches the title.

 You have to hire a broker because you are not bringing it in as a parts car. Also, you have to have a safety done on it in the first year (unless the rules have changed) which would sure be a stretch on this car. But it sure would be great bones for a project car Todd.

Does the safety inspection rule apply for all Canadian provinces?
