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.

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!!
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 Buick Convertible Barn Find Rescue, Part 1
This is the story of a '66 Buick Special convertible that had been
abandoned in Arizona in 1978 by the family of Rick Pewe, editor of 4-Wheel
& Off-Road magazine. In 2011, the guys from HOT ROD Magazine, in
conjunction with Rick, spent four days bringing the car back from the dead
with plans to drive it home from Phoenix to Los Angeles. This is part 1,
with the hacking fun the guys had rescuing the car. Look for part two,
loaded with road-trip hilarity. The story is printed in the September 2011
issue of HOT ROD Magazine.
