For Sale: 1987 Buick Grand National in Lavergne, Tennessee

Vehicle Description

This 1987 Buick Grand National has been given big investment within the last few years to keep it both stock and sharp. So while we love all of the turbo-powered GNs for their dark and aggressive attitude, as you look closer at this one, you'll also see the level of respect and restoration that you really want in your classic.

You already know the legend. General Motors had a short run of Buick coupes that looked mean and had the performance to back it all up. Its Regal siblings have a great creased appearance that instantly conveys a feeling of premium. But where they liked to use chrome to make a statement, this one reserves the brightwork only for the wheels. That sends a very different message. The blacked-out trim, the power dome hood, and the subtle ducktail spoiler all give this car a look that commands respect - and it all came directly from the factory that way. And we're told the respray of the sinister black paint happened just over a year ago. And everything from the fit of the sheet metal to the newer bumper filler pieces makes sure the light rolls evenly across the body - no matter if it's radiating the noon sunlight or a full moon night.

The correct black and gray is freshly detailed. So the bucket seats up front look great, and yours even power adjusts to the ideal driving position. So they do a terrific job of balancing out the Buick's comfortable image with extra bolstering for the Grand National's added performance. As a true high-end sports coupe, this comes loaded with all the best features. It includes power windows, power locks, cruise control, the factory AM/FM/cassette stereo, and cold-blowing air conditioning. This one has been looked after so well, right down to details, like the correct-spec replacement power antenna. The three-spoke steering wheel and the tilt column were designed to give you a clear view of the gauges. That's important here because you have the cool horizontal tach and the upgraded 145 mph speedometer.

What makes this one so special is what's under the hood. The 3.8-liter fuel-injected V6 turbo motor turned this Buick into a Corvette contender. And because the powerplant is so essential, this one has been kept in show-ready condition. It's not just the clean style and factory decals that make this so attractive. This is a thoughtful setup, right down to the new hood mat with correct Grand National graphics. Such a clean style and overall respect make for a strong-running turbo powerhouse. The four-speed automatic transmission is not only there for quick shifting action, but also it's for overdrive comfort. And this mix of comfort and performance extends to the fresh undercarriage with newer bushing, shocks, springs, and powder-coated components. It makes for a confident driver that includes power steering, power brakes, front discs, and sway bars front & rear.

You're looking at one of the most desirable machines from the 1980s. And you already know the price doesn't get any better for a complete and maintained Grand Nationals. So this is a case of calling us today, or you might regret it tomorrow!
