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.

1971 Ford LTD For Sale
1971 Ford LTD Convertible for sale in Chicago, IL. This 1971 Ford LTD
Convertible is a true original. Unmolested, this 74 LTD has just 100,859
Original miles from its numbers matching factory upgraded 429 CID 7.0L 385
V8 engine. The vehicle has been repainted matching its original color from
the factory and is an ultimate cruiser for car shows, cruise nights, or
just to take out on the weekend to let the open road be your guide.
For 1971, the LTD received a more extensive facelift. In the rear, the
long-running styling theme of twin round or square "jet Exhaust" taillights were replaced by horizontal
taillights on all full-size Fords. The LTD lost its distinctive hidden
headlamps, but had the LTD grille badge, side trim, and tail which had a
center taillight featuring a center "third" brake light. For comparison,
this was an alloy trim panel on the Galaxie 500 while on the Custom 500,
the space between the taillights was body-color sheetmetal. The 1972 front
end featured flush grilles instead of the concave treatment of the 1971
models and an additional bumper bar extended across the center grille
section, while the rear received a large high chrome bumper into which
taillights were set. In the rear, the trunk lid was squared off.
This is a true original classic without the huge price tag associated with
it. This extremely clean and original 1971 Ford LTD Convertible is located
in our Chicago Illinois Showroom which can be reached at 708-444-4488 for

Motorama 1953 Set Up
In 1953, General Motors wanted to jump start consumer enthusiasm for its
new cars. The auto shows hadn't started back up after the War so they
decided to take matters into their own hands.
They staged a series of events dubbed the Motoraramas, launching at the
Waldorf Astoria in New York. Here thousands of people could see the new
cars and also some dream cars whipped up by GM's master of fantasy, design
chief, Harley Earl.
It was quite an undertaking squeezing an auto show into the Waldorf but it
paid off as the show stirred up excitement and generated countless news
articles that spread the word across the country.
