The Buick Skyhawk was a compact two-door hatchback with rear wheel drive that was often noted as having an appearance like that of a Ferrari 365 GTC/4. The 1980 version was part of the first generation in this model of Buick and carried four passengers. The 1980 model was only available in the four-speed manual and three-speed automatic transmission, with a 231 cidV6 engine. Standard brakes included front discs and drums to the rear. Maintenance and servicing details are fully covered in our Skyhawk 1980 repair manual, available in both print and digital formats.
