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!
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 Buick Limited Convertible
Here is a 1958 Buick Limited convertible. This is a very rare car all
totally original. Is currently in the Tune Up Shop in Costa Mesa California
for some minor repairs.We are making the throttle activated starter switch
functional and overhauling the numbers matching carburetor. It will be
perfect when we are finished. Directly following our repair it will be in
the Balboa Island Parade.
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!

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.

'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
