1987 Buick Grand National Gateway Classic Cars #1182
For sale in our Chicago showroom is this gorgeous 1987 Buick Grand National. Built as the evolution of the Regal T-type, and often seen in its signature black paint, the Grand National has developed a strong cult following. It shouldnt be a surprise, as these were faster than the same year Corvette right off the showroom floor! With 235 horsepower and 330ft-lbs of torque, it was certainly no slouch. The secret was under the power bulge hood. A 3.1L V6 with a fairly large turbo slapped on for good measure. Couple this with a 4-speed automatic overdrive transmission and 3.42 rear axle ratio, and Buick has a recipe for success. This example has only seen a hair under 40,000 original miles and has plenty of care taken over the years. In the last few years, the owner wanted to bring the car to its full former glory with a few modern touches. The interior was gone through and cleaned up and looks as if it was just delivered from the dealer. A fresh coat of the signature black paint was laid on thick and looks deep enough to go swimming in. The aftermarket radio will give you the ability to use a modern device to hear the classics with ease. Turn the key and this baby sings right to life. Mash the gas and watch iconic 80s digital dash light up like a Christmas tree as the boost gauge climbs pushing the speedometer higher and higher. One ride and youll understand how these cars are held in such high regard. Lower mileage examples are becoming less and less common, especially those with an untouched engine bay. Options on this 87 Buick Grand National include: Air conditioning, AM/FM/CD Player, Cruise Control, Power Brakes, Power Steering, Power Locks, Power Seats, Power Sunroof, Power Windows, Tilt Wheel, Traction Control, Seat Belts, Cloth Interior, and Rally Wheels with Radial Tires.
