'73 Centurion Convertible - Mike Sparks

A few pics of my '73 Centurion Convertible are attached. I bought this car with 56K miles from the original owner in Oct of 2000, she had received the car as her mother's day present in May of 1973. The car was used sparingly and had all the service receipts documenting mileage. Josephine(the owner) was 5' tall and 98lbs and the only problem I had with the car was getting the seat to adjust back to accomodate my 6' frame. The car has had one repaint in original dark taupe color, and the top was replaced along with the seat inserts (Josephine didn't like the vinyl, it burned her legs in the hot Texas sun) done in a high quality velour in the original pattern/color. I've rebuilt the carb, installed gas shocks new tires added dual exhaust, and converted the a/c to R 134A. The 455 runs quiet and very strong, cruising well above the speed limit in complete comfort. Just what you'd expect in a Buick. When i finish restoring my 61 26 ft Airstream we hope to combine the Buick and the Land Yacht and travel to the coast in style.
