An Alpine CD stereo has been professionally installed and speakers replaced. The air conditioning is working as well, it underwent a complete rebuild in 2008 with receipts to verify.
Under the hood is the 455 c.i. 4bbl. V8. The only engine available in the '72 Centurion, this powerplant was rated at 250 net horsepower. The engine compartment features air conditioning, power steering, power brakes, and the factory California smog equipment intact throughout.
