Description:
1973 Buick Century Luxus 2-door Coupe, 350-2 barrel V8 engine, 175 HP, automatic transmission, factory A/C. Power steering, power brakes. A rare and lucky find - everything absolutely original/stock, unrestored except for a new coat of paint in the original color applied in 2012 and a Panasonic radio/cassette that has been installed in the 1980s. Blue plate California car, originally purchased in Pasadena, stayed in one family since 1973 (with two registered owners) until I bought it in September 2012. Very little surface rust, barely visible, no rust on frame, always well maintained. Always garaged except for occasional street parking in the last few months. No repairs necessary or coming up, except new seals/gaskets for the valve head covers. I just put on new tires and put the original rims back on, had front wheel bearings replaced, engine and brakes serviced. Tranny, engine, cooling system, carburator all in excellent shape. Registered through April 2014. 5 digit odometer shows ~37k miles, judging from the original maintenance records and engine performance it's possible it really is 37k and not 137k as the car's age would suggest. The car comes with original owner manual and maintenance records from 1973 through 1978. There is one small crack in the paint in the rear passenger side window area and one small scratch on the trunk lid, both very minor and barely visible and they do not affect the overall visual appearance of the car. Other than that no dents or dings, chrome is flawless and like new, trim is complete. Glove compartment needs new lining, other than that interior has some minor cosmetic age-appropriate wear, but seats, carpet, headliner, door panels etc are in excellent shape and all original.
In recent years the car was driven only occasionally, just enough to keep it maintained and running smoothly. I drive it mostly for fun and mostly short distances. Starts without problems every time and runs and drives excellent. I have to sell to raise funds and hate to part with it. It's a lot of fun to drive, but I have to to make room for something smaller. I have lots more pictures that I can send and I'll be happy to answer any questions. All reasonable offers considered. I prefer to sell locally, more or less. Trades considered.
