1987 Buick Grand National--11,691 Miles!! Yes, 11,691
The Grand National, the only real GM muscle car of the ‘80s, is unique in a number of important respects:
• It is a 2-owner car with a reported (and documented) 11,691 miles since new!!
• It is believed to have been built on the last day Buick produced the GNs
• The original window sticker is included in the car’s documentation.
Almost Showroom Quality!
This GN is almost showroom fresh: great paint, like-new interior, very clean undercarriage.
Like all Grand Nationals, our ’87 is finished in black; but unlike some GNs, the paint is in excellent condition. The deep black finish gleams and has great depth.
The body and underside of the car appear to be free of rust and corrosion, other than minor surface rust on the unpainted surfaces. Precisely what one would expect on such a low-mileage car that has been garaged.
The underside still shows some of the original factory assembly markings.
The seat upholstery black and gray cloth with the GN logo on the front seats and appears brand new. The black carpeting is likewise as new and is additionally protected by GN-logo floor mats.
The door panels look new and the dash pad is in excellent condition.
The headliner appears perfect as well.
What made these cars a legend was the power plant: a 3.8 liter turbo- charged engine with an intercooler that generated 245 horse power. While that may seem tame by muscle car standards, these cars were able to go from the showroom floor to the track and turn 14-second quarter miles. It was rumored at the time that the GN was faster (and more powerful) than the Corvette but for marketing purposes that fact wasn’t advertised.
The engine on this GN starts right up, runs smoothly and goes like a thoroughbred when the turbo kicks in. The engine bay is very clean and detailed.
The transmission is so reliable that Buick never offered the GN in anything other than an automatic. It is quick-shifting and reliable, operated via the shifter on the console.
The rear axle is fitted with a 3.42 limited slip rear end, allowing the full torque of the engine to reach the pavement
This car is equipped with factory 15” aluminum wheels with a new set of 215/65R15 Uniroyal Tiger Paw tires. The car is safely and quickly brought to a stop with Buick’s power front disc/rear drum braking system.
• Comfort and Safety Systems
This is a car that is as much as home going to church as it is going to the track. Seating for 5 with climate-control air conditioning makes it a pleasure on family trips, with plenty of trunk space for golf clubs, luggage or groceries. The driver’s seat has the optional 6-way power controls to adjust to almost every driving position.
The original radio (that will also go with the car) has been replaced by a high-tech, in-dash Alpine GPS unit that incorporates AM/FM/Satellite radio as well as a CD player with iPod/iPhone and Bluetooth connectivity.
Of course all of the gauges, lights and other safety features work properly. Power steering and power windows complete the package.
A Perfect Example of Detroit’s ‘80s Muscle Car
With only 11,691 odometer miles, this Grand National is truly a rare beast that quickly turns into a family pussycat. Designed to be a barn burner, the car immediately accommodates family usage with A/C and all the power options. But make no mistake, this GN is a lion-eater in disguise: once awakened by the competitive challenge, let the Mustangs, Camaros, ‘Vettes and Mopars beware because this Buick can take them all.
