1973 Buick CENTURION - 455
1973 Buick Centurion 455 -- I've owned this car for only about a year, I just ordered a new car and don't have anywhere to keep this. The original owner bought it in Washington state, and as far as anyone can tell, it has always been a Pacific NW car, therefore NO salt exposure. The odometer shows 76030, it appears to be original miles but there's no way to verify. This is a relatively high option car, with power windows, tilt wheel, power driver seat, and A/C. The car drives well, strong engine, transmission shifts firmly and shows no slip. Paint is good, glass is good, tires are good. Upholstery is decent with only a few minor cracks. A few minor issues that would need to be addressed to really make it perfect. The top is in excellent condition, and the scissor mechanism functions ok, however the cables need to be reattached to the #2 bow (to correctly guide the fabric stack) but they are in excellent condition. LR power window needs new guides but the motor is good. Occasionally the oil pressure light comes on when the car warms up but the mechanics tells me it simply needs a new pressure sender, otherwise the engine runs cool and strong. Also, the car includes a rare fiberglass parade boot with fabric storage case. This is a nice car that only needs a few little things to make it perfect. I simply don't have the time or expertise to do it myself, and nowhere to park it even if I did. If you have specific questions, send them to me and I'll try to get you a response ASAP. As a 43 year old car, it is obviously being sold strictly as-is. Pickup in Portland, OR, or I can help arrange trucking to your location. I've tried to describe what I know about the car in the short time I've had it but I make no guarantees. It is advertised locally and subject to sale at any time.
