Is this the meanest 1961 Buick Skylark you have ever seen?

This beautiful 1961 Buick Skylark belongs to Royce, who is also the man who build this custom car at his home. It’s  388 ci SBC engine with a th400 w/Gear Vendor transmission. That giant thing sticking off the top of the engine? Oh, thats a 8-71 Hampton Blower.

    My husband did a 62 with a full drivetrain out of an 86 GN. It’s a baby GN. Full Buick all the way!

    My first car was a 68 Skylark in the burg. So I got a thing for Skylarks lol. However this one makes me think about fuel everytime it breaths. lmao

    A guy on our block had a 4726 hemi in his street race car. When he wrecked the car, he put it in his moms old Lancer-(Valiant). He would see other cars and tell folks “I bet I could beat that with my mom’s Valiant”.
