Vehicle Description

This 1987 Buick Grand National has the dark heart attitude we love from these turbocharged coupes. So it's hard to resist a numbers-matching and highly original example - especially since its loaded with all the best features, including T-tops.

This is a documented mileage coupe, and so it has averaged less than 1,400 miles annually. The condition of the body panels and their gaps prove that it's not only low-mileage, but also this one has been well-respected. These are absolutely mean machines with the black bumpers, blackout grille, and not a bit of shiny body trim. This famous black paint looks to be the original factory application. The finish is far from perfect, but it has the well-earned look that the survivor crowd loves. And the price on this Grand National does leave room in the budget for a respray, but there's always something extra attractive about originality. The power bulge in the hood, full-width spoiler, and Vector wheels are all part of a package that makes sure we never mistake this for any other kind of pedestrian Buick out there.

The interior is highly original and absolutely loaded. It starts with the attractive two-tone black and gray seats. They show the clean look of a low-mileage machine, and they are nicely detailed, right down to the Grand National logos in the front headrests. This has terrific features, like power windows, power locks, cruise control, power steering, alarm, center console, rear defogger, and the factory AM/FM cassette stereo. The air conditioning is blowing cold with modern R134a. So feel free to take out the T-tops and enjoy the open air experience even in the summer. And the GN was truly made for driving. Your seat power adjusts to the individual ideal driving position. The three-spoke steering wheel is on a tilt column to give you a clear view of the optional digital gauge package. Plus, this was upgraded with a large AutoMeter Autogage tach on the column and a boost readout on the A-pillar.

Buick's 3.8-liter fuel-injected V6 was given a turbocharger, and that really changed the game in the 1980s. It instantly turned this Buick into a Corvette contender. So with something this significant, it's great to have the numbers-matching unit under the hood. It's a true powerhouse, and it fires up and runs with the kind of gusto that signals it has been as well-respected as the rest of this coupe. Buick upgraded the suspension for performance duty with a thick sway bar in front and one in the rear. You also have power brakes w/discs up front and newer Kumho tires. But remember, the four-speed automatic transmission is not only there for swift shifting action but also for overdrive comfort. So while this is quite quick, it also still know how to be a nice cruising Buick.

The sale comes complete with the owner's manual and service manuals. This is a true icon with true low miles. So if you love a well-respected dark horse, call today!
