Vehicle Description

1984 Buick Regal T-Type

While your average person might think there's nothing special about a Buick, real gearheads are well aware of the mad scientist engineering the brand was experimenting with back in the '80s. Cars like the 1985 Buick T-Type ruffled the feathers as they not only took the fight to Mopar and Ford models, but also gave Corvettes at the time some stiff competition.

For consignment, this wolf in sheep's clothing consignment car complete with turbo, new upgraded ecu, tons of suspension and driveline upgrades, and did I mention that the LM9 hot air turbo and V6 is long gone and the heart and soul of this gentleman's muscle car right out of 1984 is a modern 5.3 Liter LS V8. It is sporting a decent paint job, upgraded interior, and is a "mild' 590hp driver with plenty more left if you want to turn the wick up. Having the luxury of a Buick and the soul of a muscle car, we have a real storyteller on our hands.

Exterior
This Regal T-Type is draped in all white save for a few areas of touch ups and some waviness to the lower panels, but still presenting as very clean! The paint retains its shine, and depth. Straight steel panels mind their gaps and come together to create the iconic mid 1980's square and rectangle design. Up front a nicely painted white front bumper and grille surround show off the typical Buick class with a blacked out grille and headlight bezels, but as we move rearward on the hood there is just a hint of the teeth beginning to show in the form of a bump, which should serve as a warning that the luxury will come at a price. The remaining window trim, side spears, and surrounds have been menacingly blackened, to add yet another hint that there may be trouble brewing for a potential competitor. A nicely designed opera window is seen on the B pillar and affords the rear passengers to watch the world streak by. The rear is all straight and true, again, just beautifully preserved, and the rear bumper is just as snazzy as the front, in all its crisp white glory. Adding some bling factor are Digi-tails LED taillights resting just below the small trunk lid spoiler. For some added eye candy, 17" multi-spoke wheels are wrapped by skinny all-season radials up front and 275/50R17 drag radials in the rear. That will get you up the hill to fetch a pail of water, and then some!

Interior
A swing of the long doors, and shaking our hands is some tuck and roll velour fuzzy broadcloth in black broadcloth, a smooth gray vinyl armrest, and black carpet on the bottom. All in nice shape with just a few small nicks in the cloth. Moving our attention to the seats, we see Procar high back racing bucket seats with a mix of perforated black vinyl and smooth charcoal broadcloth. The driver's seat shows some wear in the form of some wear off and a light tear on the seat area, but I've begun getting picky, so we will leave it at that. A center console in light gray streaks up to the dash between the seats, houses a glovebox, and the B&M Stealth shift lever. The original dash has a more square and rectangle design here for the temp controls and just below are a trio of digital gauges for monitoring various engine vitals. The instrument cluster has been changed over to a Holley 7" digital dash and is a very clean installation. Another Holley 3.5" display has been installed on the lower right of the main cluster. A shout out to the rear bench, which is well preserved, and looks like it just came out of the showroom with a mix of black and gray broadcloth. Black carpet, clean and all good covers the floors and is protected by black carpeted Turbo 6 Grand National mats, and a charcoal headliner hangs tightly above. The interior is comfortable and fit perfectly for little Miss Muffet to sit on.

Drivetrain
Exactly what fables and legends are made of, all clean and ready to hand out a whoopin to any challenger that may cross its path. Residing in the fenderless engine bay is a consignor stated new 5.3 Liter LS V8 that was installed in August 2021. This mill is fed by a Holley Terminator Max EFI system with an ethanol content sensor. Deep within the block are forged Scat rods, forged Wiseco pistons and a Elgin .585 lift camshaft. Topping it off are Livernois 799 ported heads with a rocker trunion upgrade. This creates a final compression ratio of 10.2-1. A 2000hp capable Magnafuel fuel pump feed 210cc Bosch fuel injectors via Fragola -10 feed and -8 return lines. Helping cram more air into the mix is VS 7875 turbocharger with a large GN1 intercooler, CO2 boost controller, and a Holley Sniper intake manifold. Bolted to the back of the mill is a TCI Super Street Fighter TH400 3-speed automatic transmission with a cooler and cooling fan and a 2800rpm stall converter. Way back is a 10-bolt 3.42 rear axle with a Tru-Track posi unit, UMI support brace and Moser 30 spline axles.

Undercarriage
All black with only minor road dirt, but otherwise nice and clean, and structurally sound. We note an independent coil spring front suspension and a 4 link and coil spring rear suspension with Metco billet control arms. Strange fully adjustable shocks are seen on all 4 corners. Wilwood power disc brakes, fed by a hydroboost set up, are in charge of stopping both front and rear. We note a Denny driveshaft and for the exhale we see Holley/Hooker Blackheart turbo manifolds and Pypes Pro Race mufflers. All very clean and fully meaning business down here.

Drive-Ability
A quick starter, great handler and the acceleration is truly a smile maker. All in the lap of Buick luxury, she handled our test track without breaking a sweat but sadly we could find no challengers to take on and display the full brunt of the horses lurking under the hood. We did note a few frowns during our drive, the power locks are inoperable, the horn doesn't blow and both power windows are slow to operate both up and down, even with the doors open.

A great example, all nice, and all very powerful. Nicely taken care of and the drivetrain reads like a who's who of horsepower, you will not be disappointed on your investment on this one!
