The 1956 Buick Centurion was first appeared to the general population at the 1956 General Motors Motorama Show. The Buick Centurion Concept was a two-entryway four-inhabitants roadster developed of fiberglass composite with a red abdominal area, a brushed metallic completion on the lower part of the body and an all glass “nursery” rooftop. It was controlled by a 325 hp V8 motor.
It highlighted “wing-sort” back bumpers, which saw the styling of the 1959 Chevrolet and Buick. Additionally, the Buick Centurion Concept highlighted a TV camera in the back to show activity to the driver through a TV screen on the dashboard, supplanting the back perspective mirror.
The front end of the Buick Centurion Concept was a progressive new plan with the long hood inclining toward the front and the grille and headlights recessed well behind the guard, which is a basic part of the body outline. Twin air scoops close to the sides and specifically before the windshield gave outside air to the inside of the traveler compartment.
The inside of the Buick Centurion Concept was trimmed in sumptuous red calfskin and fiberglass with arrangements in brushed brilliant metal. The directing section was situated in the focal point of the dash with a cantilever suspended guiding wheel like the controls in a plane.
A marvelous four-traveler car with a fiberglass body and an all-glass best, the red and white Centurion dream auto was outfitted with a TV camera mounted in the storage compartment. A beneficiary on the instrument board showed pictures from the camera, in this way rendering the rearview mirror out of date. The camera was mounted in a tailcone propelled by a plane warrior, a repeating subject in idea autos of the ’50s. A 325-hp V-9 motor gave push. Centurion is currently claimed by Sloan Museum.
