If you're a collector, then you're on the lookout for a highly original Buick Grand National that has exceptionally low mileage and outstanding paperwork. And that's exactly why you're going to keep reading all the details on this standout example.
We love these cars because this was built in the grand tradition of great GM power machines. Just like how they started the muscle car wars with GTO and sneaked some big power coupe out the back door, the Grand National was the one they never saw coming in the 1980s. The Buick Regal's conservative looks were transformed into something sharp and powerful once the full midnight package was applied. It's an important distinction, because this black paint shows all signs of being the complete original factory application. And on a car that has averaged less than 450 miles annually, it retains an impressive gloss that tells you it has been respected for decades. In fact, the consignor says this is an all-original presentation, and it looks outstanding, right down to the details like the polyurethane inserts on the bumpers. This has all the sporty style you love, like the power bulge in the hood, integrated full-width rear spoiler, and bright factory wheels with the proper Grand National logo center caps. So this is the kind of overall quality mix of originality and performance that will get you invited to car shows.
The interior is loaded, comfortable, and of course, highly original. The low mileage means you're going to see few signs of anyone spending time in here. So you get to appreciate the crisp look of everything, right down to the Grand National logos in the bucket seat's wide headrests. This time capsule experience is also a luxury one with power windows, power locks, power steering, cruise control, an AM/FM/cassette stereo, and the factory air conditioning blowing nice and cold. The three-spoke sports steering wheel is on a tilt column. It has a well-done design that gives you a clear view to the full instrument package - including the cool horizontal tach and turbo boost gauge.
The engine bay's presentation is so fresh that you even have the correct hood insulator that helps announce this special motor when you open it up at the car shows. When people peek inside, they'll see an extra tidy-presentation of the numbers-matching 3.8-liter turbocharged V6. And while there are hardly any miles on this example, you also can see they have maintained this properly over the years, including a newer mass air flow sensor, Optima red top battery, and exceptionally tidy hoses. This boosted motor helps the Grand National live up to its mean-machine looks. These were known to be contenders to beat out GM's top-dog Corvette. Plus, this features like front disc brakes, sway bars front & rear, and a limited slip rear end make sure this handles like a proper turbocharged sports machine should. But remember, the four-speed automatic transmission is not only there for quick shifting action but also for overdrive comfort.
The sale comes with all the right paperwork, including the original window sticker, owner's manual, title documentation, service manuals, and maintenance records. This is a low-mileage time warp of one of the most desirable cars of it's era. Don't miss out, call today!
