1953 Buick Skylark
Created for Buick’s 50th anniversary, and one of three cars promoting General Motors’ design leadership, the 1953 Buick Skylark was quite an anomaly for the stoic GM division. It was created on the Roadmaster convertible platform, and much of the car is essentially handmade by altering Roadmaster components. The 40-spoke wire wheels were produced by Kelsey-Hayes, and collectors consider them among the most beautiful wheels ever created for an automobile.
