Centurion is one of the lesser known names in Buick history, around from 71 to 73. It replaced the Wildcat Custom. This one is in perfect condition! Too bad the hood wasn't up to inspect the engine compartment. Looks like a very cabable, powerful family cruiser.
1966 Chevy Impala SS 396 Convertible Gold
Beautiful car, great cruiser! This gold paint was very common at the time,
and this one is in perfect shape. Note the two tone interior....an off
white and that gold is repeated inside. Automatic, 396 c.i. engine. Note
the surfboard...this one is at the beach...New Smyrna FL!
1963 Ford Ranchero Blk
Nice Ranchero, based on the Falcon! You can see how they utilized just
about everything from the Falcon including the interior and that 260 c.i.
V8. This one appears to be in really good condition. The perfect little
1969 Chevelle SS Hardtop Red
Great car...and the proper color for it! Too bad reflections interfered
with the interior shots..but I felt I had to record this car!
1958 Lincoln Continental Mark III Convertible Coral
This was a new look for Lincoln Continental...a huge car, that definitely
made a statement! Even the headlamps were different..canted at an angle,
like no other car. Luxury in every respect...in some ways it reminds me of
the last Packards.
The competition was stiff here at the top of America's luxury brands!
1975 Buick LeSabre Convertible, FOR SALE www.columbiamotorcars.com
1975 Buick LeSabre Custom Convertible The upscale LeSabre Luxus designation
was dropped and replaced by the LeSabre Custom nameplate. 1975 also was the
first year of the catalytic converter, and standard high energy ignition
which was part of GM's Maximum Mileage System at the time. The 1975 LeSabre
was the first to require use of unleaded gasoline, due to the advent of the
catalytic converter. The LeSabre lineup offered a coupe and two sedans
while the LeSabre Custom lineup offered the coupe, two sedans, and the only
convertible in the Buick lineup. 1975 would be the final year for the
LeSabre Custom Convertible with around 5,300 examples rolling off the
assembly lines. Engine offerings were simplified and reduced to just two
including the standard 5.7-litre V8 (350 CID)and a four-barrel carburetor
or optional 7.5-litre V8 (455 CID) with a four barrel. Bodylines on the
1975 were somewhat softer than the 1974 model featuring round headlights
side-by-side and a cross-hatched patterned grille that flowed across the
front of the car and under the headlights. Turn signals were located in the
front bumper. A Buick tri-shield hood ornament was standard on the Custom
Series and optional on the base series. The three-hole 'ventiports' were
moved from the hood to the front fenders. Slightly larger taillamps than
the 74 draped the back of the car with back-up lights positioned in the
center broken up by the license plate. Four-door pillared sedans received a
new small third windows to emulate the six-window "Colonnade" styling of GM
intermediates while four-door hardtop sedans had new opera windows. Inside,
a new flat instrument panel shared with Electra and Riviera replaced the
wrap-around cockpit dash of previous years and featured a horizontal sweep
speedometer that read to only 100 mph compared to 120 mph in previous years
and also included kilometer readings. Otherwise, interior trimmings
received only minor revisions. Convertible production for both the LeSabre
Custom and the Centurion convertibles were not very abundant in the years
1971 to 1975. The rarest production in that time was the 1971 LeSabre
Custom with just over 1,800 units built, and the most produced was the 1973
Centurion with slightly over 5,700 units built. Due to this very low
production volume and the end of the full-size convertible era, this may
make this series of ragtop LeSabre Custom and Centurion Convertibles quite
collectable - depending on the vehicles' overall condition. The convertible
mechanism used was called the 'scissor top' that folded inward on itself,
instead of straight back. This was featured on all GM full-size
convertibles from 1971 to 1976.

1967 Buick Skylark Convertible
I thought you'd like a look at this very nice 1967 Buick Skylark
Convertible. It's not a show car or anything, but it is a nice looking
driver. It's still powered by it's original, numbers matching V8 and
automatic trans. The exterior has been repainted and they've installed a
new convertible top. It really is a nice solid car. A little painting
under the hood and it would be really sharp. I hope you find interesting,
thanks for watching!

as longtime friends, while the melody changes hands from guitar to organ to

1965 Buick Electra 225 Custom
Unedited video of my '65 Buick Electra 225 Custom.
I have brand new radial whitewall tires & a donut for the Exhaust. Just have to finish waiting for spring
to arrive again so I can start driving it on the road (too much road salt
to drive it this winter.
To all that ask, I am not modifiying this car, as its in far too good a
condition to do anything to it, aside from tires & a headliner. This is not
a racecar, or ratrod. This is a classic from American car history. :)
