Big car, big engine. That's what the big Buicks were all about and this year is no different. The big Buicks include the LeSabre, Estate Wagon, the Centurion, Electra 225, and the Riviera. The next model year, the Century was retained but the Centurion was dropped. Centurions came in a hardtop sedan, the hardtop coupe, and the convertible coupe. Only 2,396 Centurion convertibles were made this year and it would cost you about $ 4,600 at the dealer, more or less. This gargantuan behemoth weighs in at 4,396 lbs., and so that's one reason it has that gargantuan engine, the V8, 455 cube, 250 horse with the 4 barrel carb. Sales of Buick are still good despite the impending Mideast gas crisis. In fact, the 17th million Buick was made this year, a '73 Century Regal coupe. A fresh front end graced these Buicks but otherwise changed very little from the previous year. Take note of the features this big Buick shows. The massive front bumper with dual horizontal headlamps on each side of a busy grille, that huge 455 engine, the attractive rally style wheels, the wrap-around the driver's knees instrument panel, the 3 spoke steering wheel, the comfy vinyl interior, the taillights inlaid within the rear bumper, also notice the Roman Centurion badge on the trunk lid. There were 21 colors offered for Buicks this year. Oh, those were the days when you could special order your car / paint. This is finished in a color simply called " Brown ", and has the gold pinstripping accent to go with it. Enjoy this last year of the Centurion model and many thanks for viewing this 1973 Buick Centurion convertible, a big and rare Buick.
