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.

1975 Buick Electra 225 Limited Landau Impala Caprice Chevy Park Avenue ?
Buick Electra 225 Limited Landau... Just like its Relatives in the Chevy
Oldsmobile and Pontiac Brands The Impala, Caprice or Nintey Eight Oh lord
lots of other Classic 70's GM cars and i do like them all . This car could
be a Park Avenue I am not sure and am checking the rear suspension to see
if that helps. it definatly top of its class coupeWhether your a Chevy
Oldsmobile or Pontiac fan You just have to give a hat tip to the biggest
baddest Buick made in this year I think...;-) These are Great cars the
Sedans were the Longest car made I Believe. This car Sports a 455. I do Not
know how to tell If it is the Park Ave I am leaning towards No because of a
consule but cars were ordered every way you could Imagine back in the day
and i just do not know how to tell If it is a Par Ave They only made 35 of
them in this year and i doubt i would sell it. Make sure and check out My
other Videos I have over 625 of them. http://www.1ownercarguy.com and you
can call me anytime 406 544 6919. Nathan Wratislaw AKA 1 Owner Car Guy
1975 brought about changes in all of General Motors C-body cars. In 1975,
all Electra 225 coupes had fixed rear side windows and center posts. 1975
also brought along a newer front end and interior design. Rectangular
headlights became standard on all GM C-body cars, along with many others.
This supposedly would allow engineers to lower the front end to reduce wind
resistance, but this wasn't very apparent with the new design. The Electra
received a new metal "eggcrate" style grille, which covered most of the
front end, and wrapping under the headlights. The grille included running
lights on either side. There was a choice of a base model Electra 225 whose
trim and appointments were upgraded to the same level as the previous
year's Electra 225 Custom and an upscale Limited. The 1975 Electra was also
the longest Buick ever built at 233.4 inches (5,928 mm), which is over 19
feet. These cars dwarfed the newer front-wheel drive Electras and Park
Avenues in sheer size and weight.
Power windows and a power driver's seat became standard on all Electra
models in 1975. Also new to the standard equipment list were radial-ply
tires. The 1975 Electra was one of the first GM vehicles to offer an Air
Cushion Restraint System or "airbag".
Inside, a new flat instrument panel (shared with LeSabre, Estate Wagon and
Riviera) with horizontal sweep speedometer (silver facing with black
lettering) replaced the wrap-around cockpit dash of previous years and door
panel trim was revised. The speedometer was scaled back from 120 to 100 mph
(160 km/h) and kilometer readings were added.
Technical changes for 1975 included the addition of a catalytic converter
and electronic ignition to not only meet the stringent 1975 and later
emission requirements, but also extended routine maintenance intervals, and
improved fuel economy and driveability which was a must in the era
immediately following the 1973--74 energy crisis, but also spelled the end
of dual Exhaust systems and mandated
the use of unleaded gasoline as the converter could be rendered useless if
contaminated with lead. Axle ratios were also numerically lowered to aid in
improving gas mileage. The 455 four-barrel V8, now rated at 205 horsepower (153 kW), was
retained as the standard and only available engine.
Electra Limited Park Avenue
The Park Avenue, originally an interior comfort and appearance package,
gave buyers ultra-luxurious pillow-topped seating, a center console, velour
headliner, thicker carpet, and an upscale door panel design. The Park
Avenue's seats were designed by Flexsteel. This seating design was shared
by the Cadillac Sixty Special with the Talisman (1974--1976) option and
stayed with Park Avenue through the 1980 model year. Many Park Avenues were
built with the full size center console (unlike the Sixty Special's
Talisman's half console), which eliminated the 6th passenger, in the front
middle, between the driver and front passenger. 1975 also offered a more
luxurious Park Avenue Deluxe, which was sold only in 1975, and included
every option available on the Electra (posi-traction, 15" rallye sport
wheels, rear automatic leveling, etc.). The Park Avenue Deluxe was an
expensive option not popular with buyers; only 37 were built. The Park
Avenue would remain as the top level trim package through 1990. In 1991,
the Electra name would be dropped and Park Avenue would replace it as the
flagship Buick sedan.

Bad-Ass Buick: 1955 Special - /BIG MUSCLE
• Harry Fisher
In stock form, the 1955 Buick Special could best be described as a "nice"
car. It's not drop dead gorgeous like a 1959 Impala, nor does it have the
panache of say a 1956 Chrysler 300. You see the '55 Buick Special was a
working mans car. It had room enough for the whole family, a decent
power-plant thanks to its 264 cubic inch V8, and style that was, well...
above average. Harry Fisher or "Uncle Harry" as most people know him, saw
the old Buick a bit differently though. He knew that with a few little
touches (like a 502 cubic inch big-block, modern suspension, and a new set
of wheels) that this old Buick had the potential to become one of the
baddest hot-rods around.
