Automotif CCCLVII...

Here's an immaculate 1973 Buick Centurion convertible in Silver Cloud. The Centurion nameplate was Buick's shortest-lived one. It was the sporty version of Buick's full-size platform, replacing the Wildcat in the catalog for the 1971 model year.

1973 was the last year for the Centurion, and came with a 350 4-bbl V-8 as the base motor. An optional 455 4-bbl bumped the power to 250 SAE net, from the 175 bhp of the 350. (This was a sign of the times, since the 1971 and '72 model years featured only the 455, with no lesser engines offered.)
