    Hey all, new guy here tonthe forum scene as well as car rebuild scene. I picked up a ‘63 skylark a few years back and I’m finally getting around to doing something with it. The car sat for 20+ years with no love, it’s solid and complete car with all the trimmings. Got the Aluminun 215 in it hooked up to the 2 speed Dynaflow. It’s runs like a top but I’m needing to rebuild the trans and the driver/passenger floor pans. Seems it’s an odd ball transition year car so I’m just wondering where to look for parts or what others are compatible as far as floor pans. Found a rebuild kit for the trans but haven’t gotten it yet. Just looking for info from you all that have gone down this road before!
    Thanks in advance!

    Welcome to the club lol. I also have a 63 Buick Skylark. We have what is referred to as the Y body cars. The Y body includes all 61-63 BOP intermediate sized cars. They all share the same platform, just different outer skin.

    There is very little after market support for our cars. Mainly steering and suspension and engine parts. There is no after market sheet metal produced for our cars. And the 63 Skylark is a 1 year only body style.

    Good luck with your project. I'd be happy to help you out any way I can.
