The 1987 Buick Regal Turbo was basically the sleeper version of Buick's Corvette-killer. So it's great to find an example with such low mileage that delivers its full incognito speed package that makes it an amazing classic.
The Regal Turbo was about delivering the Grand National's performance in a more Buick-friendly package. That means plenty of brightwork with the chrome bumpers, shining grille, bright headlight bezels, full window trim, rocker trim, and the proper Regal hood ornament leading the way. The factory-correct Medium Gray paint has been given a proper respray later in life to continue its dignified image. But as much as this wanted to fit in with the rest of the pack, they also couldn't resist the right hints that this was as special as its G-N sibling. That means you got the power hump in the hood, a well-integrated rear spoiler, and 15-inch sport alloys. And because the car has averaged under 450 miles annually, this unique total package of prestige and performance is so nicely preserved.
The interior continues this well-balanced approach. The multi-tone gray interior is highly original and has the velour of a luxury Buick. Of course, nicely bolstered bucket seats with a floor shift center console in-between is pure sports car. The luxury side is seen again with all the features like power windows, power locks, cruise control, power steering, tilt wheel, and the factory AM/FM/cassette stereo. The air conditioning has even been upgraded to R134a to make sure you're feeling good. The performance tingle in this luxury car returns the moment you grab the three-spoke sports steering wheel that gives you an excellent view of Buick's retro-cool digital dash.
What really makes this one so special is what's under the hood. The 3.8-liter fuel-injected V6 was built with a turbocharger and intercooler. It produced the kind of power that made GM's king sports car, the Corvette, very nervous. Plus, features like power brakes w/discs up front, wide Cooper Cobra radials, and sway bars front & rear help 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. It's all part of a package that lets you enjoy a comfortable Buick when you want and awake the sleeper at a moment's notice.
Complete with owner's manual, this is a speedy incognito machine that's an unbeatable package. So don't delay, call today!
