Harry's Thoughts

I love the menacing look of these cars. Only the 80's would produce such a design!

THE ESSENTIALS

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 daniel@classicpromenade.com

The Buick Regal is an upscale mid-sized automobile that was first introduced by Buick for the 1973 model year. The model was originally positioned as a personal luxury car, and typically offered in both coupe and sedan forms until 1997, when the Regal became sedan-only due to the decline of the personal luxury coupe market. For certain model years between 1973 and 2004, the Regal shared bodies and powertrains with the similar Buick Century, although the Regal was positioned as a more upmarket vehicle. In February 1982, the Regal Grand National debuted, which was named for the NASCAR Winston Cup Grand National Series (the "Grand National" term was part of the Cup series nomenclature until 1986). Buick had won the Manufacturers Cup in 1981 and 1982, and wanted to capitalize on its success: "What wins on Sunday, sells on Monday". These 1982 cars were not painted black, which may confuse those not familiar with them. All started out as charcoal gray Regals that were shipped off to a subcontractor for finishing. Originally intended for a run of 100 units, Cars and Concepts of Brighton, Michigan, retrofitted 215 Regals with the GN package. Most obvious was the light silver gray firemist paint added to each side. Red pinstripes and billboard shadow lettering proclaiming "Buick" were applied. The wheel opening moldings and rocker panel moldings were blacked out using black vinyl tape. Finally, a front air dam and rear spoiler were installed. On the inside, special "Lear-Siegler" seats were installed. These seats are fully adjustable and were covered with silver brandon cloth with black vinyl inserts. The front seat had Buick's "6" emblem embroidered onto them. Also, a special clock delete plate was added to the instrument panel which contained the yellow and orange "6" logo and the words "Grand National Buick Motor Division".)
