About Centurion

  • Southern Comfort buys Centurion in 2006
  • Here’s a little info on Chevy Centurions… Centurion is the leader in automotive conversions and is well known for their crew cab conversion trucks featuring the most popular Chevy 1500 using 100% GM parts that are warrantied through your GM dealer. They are known for building extremely rare models that few have heard about… or ever seen! The 1997-1998 half ton models are hard to come by and if you do they are still worth a pretty penny! The 97-98 1500 crewcab/short bed is extremely rare so if you own one then you have a needle in the haystack! Centurion Conversions had a very limited production number of these trucks. Aprox every 4 months one was picked off the assembly line and sent to Centurion. After the conversion most seemed to have been purchased by GM employees. The 4wd models were fewer and started just under $40k at $39,975. All GM dealership brochures in the 90’s only offered a standard & extended cab in the 1500 series trucks… however a limited amount of 2500 & 3500 crew cab longbed W/T (work trucks) were available by special order only. Centurion Conversions were bought out by Southern Comfort Conversions 1/24/06… link
