In '53 the Skylark convertible was inside Roadmaster series, and that way we have listed these in the site Buick Roadmaster Skylark [76-X]

Interesting.
Never in my life have I heard it referred to as a "Roadmaster Skylark", just "Skylark".
Was the Roadmaster nameplate on the car?

Standard Catalog does say Roadmaster Skylark. Only 1,690 made.

"A very special 1953 Roadmaster model was the 76X Skylark Anniversary Convertible. It was on the Roadmaster chassis, but had its own fenders with open wheel houses, painted white or red, and did not have any Ventiports. A lowered top, 40-spoke Kelsey-Hayes wire wheels and a full complement of luxury accessories were included. The Skylark had its own slim, cast sweep spear moldings and special body side emblems on the rear quarter."

Yes, it was so visually different I never really thought of it as a Roadmaster.
Again, did the "Roadmaster" name appear anywhere on the car, inside or out?

I think it only says SKYLARK, in the badge beside the rear wheel arches.

As far as I know these were built from Roadmaster panels which were then sectioned to give the lower look. I have not seen one in pieces but I believe that when the door panels are off the body join can be seen.
