For Sale: 1987 Buick Regal in Kentwood, Michigan

Vehicle Description

GR Auto Gallery is pleased to present this 1987 Buick Grand National for sale. The Buick Grand
National offered here is powered by the original 3.8L Turbocharged V6 with an intercooler.
Power is sent to the rear wheels through a 4-speed automatic transmission. The Buick Grand
National was the car to beat at the time of its production as it could outrun any V8 at the time.
Setting this example apart is the sheer amount of work that has been done to ensure driveability
and performance. Within the past five years it has received all new stainless brake and fuel
lines, rubber brake hoses, all new brakes, shocks, other suspension bits, Comp Cam valve
springs, a Roller Master billet timing set, the original radiator was re-cored, and a completely
new AC system. Also installed were new tires, a new water pump, new u-joints, and the original
radio/cassette was overhauled. The selling owner also notes that a few performance mods were
installed that are undetectable to maintain a stock appearance. Performance upgrades include a
3-inch stainless downpipe, 2.5-inch stainless dual exhaust, a Red's Modified high-flow fuel
pump, 42-pound injectors, a larger TA49 turbo, and an RJC power plate. Following the
installation of these upgrades this example was tuned by Brian Lorenz at Lorenz Racing.
The exterior is finished in the original color black paint which shows well. Throughout the car,
you will find the Grand National logo. The exterior, as part of the Grand National package, also
features sport body-color mirrors. A note from the selling owner states that the trunk lid and one
quarter panel were repainted due to some cracking in the paint.
Moving to the interior you will find a two-tone cloth interior that is in immaculate condition. There
are no rips or tears to be found in any of the seats. The interior features many creature comforts
to make this performance car more accessible to the masses. These include cruise control, air
conditioning, a tilt steering column, and an electric rear window defogger.
Mechanically this car is in good condition and comes with a thick folder of recent maintenance
and receipts from the upgraded parts. With the sport suspension and turbocharged engine, the
Grand National is truly an amazing car to drive and this is your opportunity to get behind the
wheel.
In 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". After a brief sort of experimental run, the
Grand National returned with an ahead-of-its-time turbocharged 3.8 liter V8 matching the power
of the big V8. While restrictions were high at the time, these mean road warriors were definitely
in the front of the muscle car pack in the 1980s. According to Motor Trend: Values are climbing
and will continue to for prime, unmolested examples. Please call or email with any questions or
