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.
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
1953 Buick Roadmaster Skylark Convertible Red
A rare car...and very expensive when built..$5000! It served as a showcase
for some new, swoopy styling at Buick, and the new overhead valve V8
engine. Beautiful red paint and interior...great power accessories and
Dynaflow. Who could wish for more?
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!
1966 Mercury Comet Caliente Hardtop Blu
Beautiful condition! Nice paint, and the white interior with wood trim
really sets it off. Mercury interiors at this point were really spot on!
Notice the fender skirts..rare, I would say!

1970 Buick Wildcat, Convertible, 455 V8, Rust Free, FOR SALE!!
1970 Buick Wildcat, Convertible, 455 V8, Rust Free, FOR SALE!
This is a rust free Wildcat Convertible (Body Style 67) with the 455 V-8
and 83k miles since new. This is an incredibly rare Wildcat Convertible
with the highly desirable matching numbers 455 cu in big block V-8 with
Rochester four barrel carburetor. 1970 was the last year for the Buick
Wildcat and was the only year for the formidable 455 V-8!
This is likely that out of only 1,244 Wildcat Convertibles only about 200
were made in this configuration since the vast majority of the Wildcats
were specified with the 350... and what a difference the big block makes!
This example is presented in Signal Red and has seen one average quality
repaint since new. The coachwork has a few minor "door dings" and other
imperfections but overall is in good condition and the paint finish is
quite serviceable. We thoroughly examined this for bondo and rust and
found the body to be in very good condition with no signs of rust or
significant body damage. Overall this motorcar can be presented at local
car shows but in not a concours contender.
The interior is a combination of original and new replacement. There are a
couple of dash pad cracks and minor imperfection but overall the interior
is in good condition and very serviceable as is. The top is newer and in
very good condition. The chrome is in good to excellent condition. This
example is also equipped with factory air conditioning that is presently
The '70 Wildcats went out with an all new 455 cid V8, rated at 370 hp and a
pavement pounding 510 lb-ft of torque. This new 455 engine had a 10:1
compression ratio, a cast iron block, hydraulic lifters, five main
bearings, and a four barrel carburetor. This drivetrain provided
performance of 0-60 mph in 6.8 seconds and a top speed of 126 mph!
Unfortunately while at the top of it's performance peak, the Wildcat's
sales dropped considerably and the Wildcat was dropped completely from the
This example was sold new in Arizona in March of 1970. It remained in
Arizona except for a brief stint as part of a collection in Ohio (although
we are uncertain whether the car ever left the state). It is presently in
excellent mechanical condition as it has accumulated about 2,000 miles in
the last few months!!
This motorcar is in good condition overall and can be used for extensive
touring, car shows or as a daily driver!!
