This is probably a long shot but I'm looking for a rear window for a 61 Buick Skylark 2 door. I believe that 61 and 62 Pontiac Tempest and Olds F85 use the same rear window.

Now that'll be a search. The only "pre A" car I've seen in the past fives years was a F85 four door that is radomly driven.

It is a cool car and not one that you would see very often. Its 99% complete too with the aluminum engine. I'm going to try to straighten out the rear valance panel before going to replace it. Found out a regular cab 2 wheel drive Colorado is close in wheelbase so I might update the suspension that way.

Jeff,
My neighbor had one some years back. His was a '62 2-dr Buick Special with the aluminum 215 V-8. It was in relatively decent shape except for one side quarter panel that was crunched a bit. Cool body style.
I know this doesn't help you, but I'll keep an eye open for you.

Racers put 421s in the 63 Tempest/Lemans back then.

Do the Buicks have transaxles, or was that just a Tempest thing?

Just the Tempest. It predated the Vette with the transmission in the rear. One of the reasons that racers liked them.
