    I currently found two, one local another in the state over but I'm looking at all options. I'm looking for either the car or the shell in good condition with minimal rot or rust. My goal is to drop an LS2 in with a five speed , do whatever need to be done to the suspension and customize the interior maybe even paint it to match my lightning gray GMC. I'd like to know a bit more about the car as I've never actually ever seen one and it seems like they are pretty rare.

    The 75-79 Apollo/Skylark is basically a Chevy Nova with Buick styling cues - front bumper is different, grille is different, front fenders are same shape but have the faux venti ports. The doors, trunk lid, glass, and interior body tub is the same. I'd be willing to try and find one in El Paso, but the interior will most likely be completely vaporized to powder. And the interior parts are not reproduced, don't believe any of them. Last coupe I saw in the U Pull it was four years ago, had bucket seats and sport mirrors to boot. Long gone, of course, but if one happens to come upon a car they just bought, you can buy it if you meet there price. Before the VIN is deactivated, and the car is processed, and goes to general population in the yard. Usually about a tripling in price. All about timing.

    I like the white one as it is all original. They seem to cost more than they did back then at MSRP.
    Just checked, posts are pretty old.

    Hey Jester.308, I recently did some trading and got a 1976 Skylark Coupe with a optional 301 Pontiac, air, pdb, cruise, it's been sitting for a few years and shows 64k on the odometer. This is a trunklid model [no hatchback] and no vinyl top either. It has 14 inch chrome rally wheels, a trailer hitch, and sport mirrors. The body has the original paint and some rust in the lower rear quarters, also the interior is a little rough from sitting outside and their is no title with it. I'm asking $1,800 and may sell without the engine and wheels for less if you don't want them. call 785-626-7736 or 785-626-9656 Thanks, Larry.
