    Default 70 Skylark Custom Grill

    I'm looking for a correct grill for the 70 Skylark Custom Conv. It seems the GS grills are everywhere, but not the Custom ones. Prefer with no cracks or pitting, and complete with badging if possible. Needle in a haystack? Love the one year only parts...

    Thanks,

    Very hard item to find, most are broken where the studs enter the grill....be prepared to wait....I have only found 2 decent ones in 25+ years of yarding......contact Bruno here and he may have one.....or www.mrbuick.com he is parting out some cars.

    i have one thats has a small crack on the bottom, it came out of a body shop from the 70s, and it has ALL the chrome still on it..i never saw a survivor like this the edges are actually chrome plated, no studs broke, no other issues, just a small crack right in the middle on the bottom edge..it would actually glue, and it would be very difficult to see..

    Hi Mark, it still has the Skylark and tri-shield badges too? If so, you just sold it!

    No, it was replaced at a bodyshop, so they transfered the embs to a new grill, the owner never threw anything away, i helped him clean out his shop when he sold it, and he gave me all the 60s/70s stuff for the help.the shop actually close in 91 and the building was sold to be torn down and become a QT...

    Mark, Sorry, I misunderstood. I thought you were still checking it out for the badges. Without the badging, that just puts me looking for a different needle in the same haystack! If others are interested in the grill you have, go ahead and let them take it.

    Thanks for checking,

    Dave,
    Just checked my grill. It is in bad shape, but the badging looks good. If you can't come up with anything, at least I can supply you the badges.
