Buick Skyhawk background information
The Buick Skyhawk is a passenger car produced by Buick from 1975 to 1980 and from 1982 to 1989.
From 1975 to 1980 the Skyhawk was only produced in a two-door hatchback version. This first series was rear-wheel drive. From 1982 to 1989 the model, this time with front-wheel drive, was instead available in two-door hatchback, four-door sedan and four-door estate. In the first period the Skyhawk was based on the General Motors H platform and was part of the subcompact car category, while in the second period mentioned the Skyhawk was built on the J platform and was part of the compact car category.
The first series of the Buick Skyhawk was a subcompact car that could seat four passengers. Introduced in September 1974, it was produced from model year 1975 to model year 1980. Considering only the 60 years that preceded the launch of the car on the market, the Skyhawk was the smallest model produced by Buick. This first generation of the model was derived from the Chevrolet Vega, with which it shared the H floor, wheelbase and width. This floor was also the basis for other models such as the Chevrolet Monza, the Oldsmobile Starfire and the Pontiac Sunbird. The Skyhawk’s competitors were the Toyota Celica, the Mercury Capri and the second series Ford Mustang. Offered with a two-door hatchback body only, this first generation Skyhawk was assembled in Lordstown, Ohio, and Sainte-Thérèse, Canada.
The second series of Skyhawk, which was based on the General Motors J platform, debuted in February 1982 at the Chicago Motor Show and belonged to the compact car category. Unlike the first series, it was front-wheel drive. Initially, the second generation of the Skyhawk was only available with two- and four-door sedan bodies. This second series of the model was extremely similar to the Chevrolet Cavalier, and had installed as standard the “122” engine (this is its abbreviation) with four cylinders in line and 1.8 L displacement overhead valves. It produced 88 HP of power and was powered by a double-barrel carburettor. As an option, the version with throttle body injection, produced in Brazil, producing 80 hp was available. A carbureted, single-shaft distribution engine was introduced shortly after the second series of the Skyhawk debuted in dealerships. This engine had a displacement of 2 L. This generation of Skyhawk had the engine in the forward position. Among the options, there was also a five-speed manual gearbox. The other transmissions available were a four-speed manual transmission and a three-speed automatic transmission.
