1972 Buick Centurion

The 1972 Centurion featured minor appearance changes including a revised vertical bar grille and taillight lenses.

 

Under the hood, the standard and only available 455 cubic-inch V8 was rated at 250 net horsepower, which represented an "on-paper" decrease from the 315 gross horsepower rating in 1971. This was due to an industry-wide change in horsepower measurements from the gross method by a dynamometer outside a vehicle with no accessories installed to a SAE net method in which horsepower was measured as installed in a vehicle with accessories and emission controls hooked up. Turbo Hydra-matic transmission, variable ratio power steering and power front disc brakes were again standard equipment.

Sales climbed over 20%, to 36,165 for the model year.

  • Care

    As with all photographic prints, it is best to mount under glass or plastic. Do not touch the surface of the print as it will leave fingerprints. DO NOT GET WET.
