This car could be anyones pride and joy,.And back then in the 70's they were trying to promote cars like the Chevette and Pinto. People still wanted cars with character, style, and power. Not a tin can, throw away econobox. This car still had close to 300 horses ! These cars run and drive like they are on a cloud, With its 455 V8 you will have plenty of power and can still squeal the tires . The interior is as comfortable as any Buick made today. These cars were made for 6 people to ride in,not your typical convertible of today. Equipped with all the power options, it was luxury packed in a convertible shell for you to enjoy. Even with the big 455 V8, if driven conservatively, can achieve close to 18 MPG on the long trips. Keep in mind the car was designed for comfort, style and power, not fuel economy.The Centurion, named for a 1956 General Motors Motorama concept car,. Built from 1971 to 1973 it was availablein all the body styles including the short lived convertible.Buick kept the Centurion in production only through 1973. only a little over 5000 of these were made ,The car is for sale locally and your encouraged to call and make an offer.
