On initiative of Harlow Curtis (general manager Buick, becoming a chief executive General Motors afterwards) in the second half of 30th a company passed to new denotation of the models. So models 60 Series began to be named Century. Buick Century used popularity among politicians and businessmen. Under a hood an engine stood power of 120 hp. Able to disperse a car to 95 miles at o'clock. This was one of the most powerful and rapid cars of that time. In 1942, the connection with First World War, producing of model ceased temporally.
A production was renewed only in 1954 and, certainly, already in a new design.
The model row of Century besides sedan began to offer a basket all-round craftsman (Buick Century Caballero). In 1955 to order of travelling patrol of the state California a company Buick creates 2-door sedans that were not accessible wide public. In 1959 Invicta comes on changing of Century. At that time, the car almost to none, that is only good, not otherwise. And it is very, very cool. At least, this is not a drawback, in that, strictly speaking, and expects creators.
Only in 1973 the model under the name Century again appears in motor shows. At this time Century successfully competes at the market with Pontiac Grand Prix and Pontiac Gran Am.
Produced, as well as before, in a few modifications: rear-wheel drive sedans, compartment and all-round craftsman.
The next updating waited Buick Century in 1978. The 2-door version got a basket fastback (aero back). Complemented is the model row as usual sedan and all-round craftsman. A car notably diminished in sizes and on several hundred pounds became easier, than his predecessor.
In 1982 the renewed appeared front-wheel drive Buick Century on the new A- platform. This generation appeared a long-liver, lasting to 1996, certainly, not once exposed to updating. First serious facelift followed in 1986. Then new back lanterns and changed grate of radiator appeared in 1989.
The form of side windows slightly changed also. From the same year to the car the new engine of V6 began to be set by volume of 3,3 L. The grate of radiator changed the look as early as 1991 and 1994, but every time these changes already were not so cardinal and noticeable.
Buick Century periodically got new options and technological novelties. For example: new technologies such as opening a door without a key a modern stereo system, and many other. The car got new brakes. The complete set of elements of passive safety included two air pillows and seatbelts with inertia spools.
In 2004 the model of Century was taken off from a production.
