You are looking at an automotive anomaly: quite possibly the only American Muscle car ever produced where you actually want the 6-cylinder! Thats right, this beautiful 1987 Buick Grand National with the 3.8 liter turbo V-6 motor is in unbelievably nice condition and ready to be enjoyed. With complete original documentation, service records, and a clean CARFAX, this Buick is probably one of the cleanest around.
True, this car is built on the GM G-Body platform, but this is NOT the same car as the Oldsmobile your grandma used to go to church and bingo! No, the Grand National’s Turbo V-6 put out 245hp and 355lb-ft of torque. This subtly menacing car can do 0-60 in 4.8 seconds, which is still a respectable number by today’s standard. More interesting though was how the Grand National embarrassed the competition of the day, putting up better numbers than the Corvette, Camaro, Firebird, and Mustang.
This particular Grand National was originally purchased at Childress Buick in Phoenix, Arizona, and it has spent its entire life in the area. And in a garage no less. Be sure to see the photos showcasing the rust free body, frame and undercarriage. The car comes with it’s original dealer paperwork, sales receipts, books, manuals and some service records. The current owner is undoubtedly a car enthusiast and has taken great care to maintain this vehicle; this car has not been abused or driven hard!
Mechanically, this Grand National is in very good condition. The entire drivetrain is largely stock and original with the exception of a few bolt on parts, including an upgraded transmission pan, larger down pipe, Duttweiler intercooler, and a high performance fuel regulator. The catalytic converter has also been removed (its a dummy). We will note the air conditioning does not work, the owner claims the vehicle needs a new compressor. The transmission was fully rebuilt using all heavy-duty performance parts, and we mean every part that was able to be upgraded was upgraded.
Cosmetically, the interior is completely stock and original. There are a few very minor cracks in the dash, but overall the condition of all interior pieces are very good. Accessories function properly, the seats have maintained their shape, the roof liner does not sag, and the vehicle is free of stains or smells. On the exterior, the paint is overall excellent. Not factory new, but extremely good. We did not find any dents, scratches, or blemishes worth mentioning.
If you’re in the market for a Grand National, you’ll know most are either heavily modified, rebuilt, from out east, or are priced ridiculously high. This Buick, however, has none of those concerns and is priced competitively.
This vehicle can be viewed at our Phoenix Showroom. For more information, contact Daniel at +1.917.890.4230 or firstname.lastname@example.org
