1971 Buick Centurion Convertible

The Buick Centurion had a short run, having been made from only 1971-1973. It was intended to be a sporty middle-value car from Buick. The body looked very similar to the Buick LeSabre and Buick Century, and in fact, sometimes its name "Centurion" was confused with the Buick Century. This classic car has at least some sentimental value to me, because my Dad had a 1973 Buick Century and my grandparents had an early 1970s Buick LeSabre that had very similar (if not the same) headlights.

In 2011, this brown convertible with 54K original miles was sold at an auction in Colorado for $6500. If you love the Buick Centurion, I hope you enjoy the photos and videos below!

  • 1971 Buick Centurion The passenger side had two glitches that would need to be addressed in a restoration project.

    1) The body had a small dent (a "ding") on the passenger side toward the back. It can be seen in the walk around video below.

    2) The sporty metal lining that went across the passenger side door was missing.

    Emblem The emblem on the hood had a unique Centurion design.

    I certainly do not want to be a "kill joy" about the inside, but I found the interior and overall design inside to be underwhelming. The steering wheel is so boring! Everything lacked pizzazz.

    Having said that, the car's interior was in very good shape.

    Wheel Cover Love the sporty wheel cover and circular design around the wheel.
