    Hi Guys:

    Looking into buying another '65 Skylark Gran Sport. I'm fairly flexible - so anything from a rust-free project to a daily driver/survivor - but something I can still “tinker” with. $16k or less (if I had to throw out a number). What is out there?

    Coupe or convertible
    manual trans
    Cars that retain original appearance
    Cars located on West Coast

    Open to:
    Post cars (if manual trans)
    Ordinary Skylark (especially if convertible or manual trans)

    Very rusty cars

    Thanks for the leads everyone!

    None of these are quite right for me - but much appreciated!

    The search continues.

    Hi Mike!
    Sounds like a great car. I'd really like something I can "tinker" with a little bit rather than an awesome frame-off car like yours. Thanks!

    I have a `65 Skylark Sport Coupe. Midnight Blue and black interior. 300-4 V8 and 2spd (I know you wanted a stick, but???). It's a California Black Plate Car and now in Phoenix, AZ. It's an excellent candidate for anything. Not a pristine survivor, not a rust bucket, not taken apart. It's an ok driver. I have tons of parts for it to upgrade the suspension, brakes, etc. Also have a BRF code 200R4 (I know, but???), gears and LSD for the 8.2 rear. I don't know if I'll ever get to it, that's the only reason that I'm mentioning it. I love the body style. I thought if I offered it, I would want it to go as a package. I'm not at my regular computer so don't have a picture at the moment.

    I have a '65 convertible Skylark. 300-4bbl, just finished rebuilding the motor. Has a new top and mostly new interior. Red w/black interior. Could use a little tinkering but nearly done. Would have to get close to the number you have to spend. I'm in Portland OR area.
