Buick Century Sport Coupe
It’s not really the official name, but the Century coupe for 1976-1977 was such a radical departure from the rest of the Century lineup, we’re giving it its own page here. The coupe got new squared off fenders and horizontal quad headlamps, while the sedan/wagon kept the rounded swooping fenders and gained vertically-oriented quad headlamps. To differentiate between itself and the Regal, Century received a slightly raked back nose. T-tops were available, and for 1977, a ‘Highway Economy Package’ was offered. This consisted of the 231 V6, and economy-minded automatic transmission, a 2.56 rear axle and a special switch that cutoff the a/c compressor when you went full throttle. A 350 V8 was also available for those who wanted to suck down more gas. As for 1978, all Centurys were back on the same page as far as appearance, so be sure to check out the rest of the Century timeline.
