1972 Buick LeSabre Convertible Gold SumterFG040713
Now this is a FULL sized car! Plenty of room for a cruise! Hard to
believe that all this luxury was in the lowest priced series Buick!
Competition within GM was pretty great...the pitch could easily be made
that for the cost of a Pontiac, you could move up to a Buick...which made
the folks at Buick happy...and at Pontiac, sad!
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."

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.
