1973 Buick Centurion Convertible Maroon

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 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!





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 truck/car!





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!





1998 Mustang Convertible DkGrn
Nice car! As the sign says, it's for sale..not mine, but if you're interested, the phone number is there in the video. It has a Cobra hood and wheels..looks in good shape!

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. Call Dave at 781-385-9447 to find out more about this classic, or make an appointment to come and take a look. See more pictures at www.columbiamotorcars.com...

'66 Buick Back From The Dead! - HOT ROD Unlimited Episode 5
On this episode of HOT ROD Unlimited, we raise a '66 Buick from the dead. After spending 33 years sitting outside in the desert, the broken down Buick Special is revived by David Freiburger and Mike Finnegan of HOT ROD and Rick Pewe of 4-Wheel & Off-Road magazine. Rick's mother bought the car when it was near new and parked it when the transmission failed in 1978. In 2011, the guys spent two and a half days wrenching on the car, with the hopes of driving it home from Phoenix to Los Angeles. Come along for the ride and see what happens! HOT ROD Unlimited appears every other Friday on the new Motor Trend channel. http://www.youtube.com/motortrend Subscribe now to make sure you're in on all the action! http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=motortrend Facebook - http://facebook.com/motortrendmag & http://facebook.com/hotrodmag Twitter - http://twitter.com/motortrend Google+ - https://plus.google.com/101867967859016552744/posts Website - http://www.motortrend.com & http://www.hotrod.com

Buick - History Documentary (1995)
This video is a wonderfully-done documentary, written and produced by Michael Rose, on the history of Buick as presented in 1995 from the History Channel's archive. Here is Michael's description of the video verbatim: "No one would have believed that the tinkering of a plumber would turn into the foundation of the world's largest corporation. But it did. David Dunbar Buick invented a process to adhere porcelain to tubs and other bathroom fixtures. But the Scottish immigrant dreamed of making a mark out of the bathroom, and set to work building a car. By 1900, he enlisted the aid of another inventor, Walter Marr, and they built their first vehicle. Their invention attracted the attention of one of Michigan's wealthiest men, William Crapo Durant, the president of the world's largest buggy-building business. As soon as he drove one of Buick's early creations, Durant realized that the days of the horse and buggy were over. He teamed up with Buick, and the two went on to make history. By the thirties, Buicks were regarded as some of the finest cars ever made. From the first Buicks through the birth of General Motors and into history, this is the compelling story of the partnership that eventually became the basis for the largest company in the world."





1965 Buick Wildcat FOR SALE!
I am selling this and will list on WWW.ELDERLYIRON.COM and OLDFARMAUCTION.com in a few weeks after this has some time to percolate and get some views/interest. I bought this car from it's original owner's son out of Gardner Montana at the entrance to Yellowstone park. Just think of all the elk this car has seen! I assume the motor is no good and I tell you why in the video but the interior is all there and original. The bumper has one dent and on trim band is missing from the rear quarter other than that she is a nice straight car! Take a look at this and the other videos I am listing of vintage cars and trucks for sale. When you are done wander over to www.elderlyiron.com and have a look around there. If you are fan of vintage trucks and keeping them running then take a gander at elderlyiron's youtube channel. Be sure to catch a web episode of 'This old Truck' you will not be disappointed.
