Lightly modified and heavily preserved, this monochromatic marvel is the kind of collectable that, unlike the plume of untouched G-Bodies currently clouding the hobby, can be driven AND admired. And whether you're looking for a modern muscle car that has some serious upside, or just a choice ride to chase the sun in, it's your chance to become the king of cool!
A TRIBUTE TO WINNING
Capitalizing on the success of winning NASCAR's 1981 and '82 Manufacturer's Cups, Buick kicked off the Grand National legacy by introducing a specially tweaked version of their 1982 Regal. However, it wasn't long until GM's conservative luxury crew assumed the full identity of renegade performance division by slathering black paint over highly modified G-Bodies that featured unique and menacing aesthetics. Sold new by Peacock Buick of Vienna, Virginia, this coupe features sinister GM code 19U Black that highlights crisp, original sheetmetal. The car's vertical panels center straight surfaces in even gaps, showing no signs of damage or accident repairs. Topped by great looking, factory-correct trim, the finish on those panels is every bit as glossy as it is deep. And that paint plays well with the number one 'must have' for '80s GM classics: factory T-Tops.
If anyone ever creates an ultimate engine survivors list, Buick's stalwart, 231 cubic inch V6 will surely be at the top. Introduced as the Fireball, and eventually renamed the 3800, its early '60s design was sold to Kaiser, bought back by General Motors and, with the help of turbos, superchargers and continuous improvements, would remain one of the company's core powerplants until the turn of the century! In 1986, the Grand National's turbocharged 3.8 liter, which had already benefitted from sequential fuel injection and distributorless ignition, saw significant mechanical changes that included a new air-to-air intercooler, adjustments to its Garrett turbo, improved upper and lower intake manifolds, and a redesigned exhaust system. By 1987, those carefully calculated tweaks were good for a newly impressive 245 horsepower and 355 lb./ft. of V8 slaying torque. And the car's drag strip scorching performance would not only best GM's own Camaro and Corvette, but also catapult it to the forefront of '80s performance! This low-mileage Buick mill is 100% stock inside and out, featuring a fresh appearance that's ready for lots warm weather and tons rich boost. And naturally, the numbers-matching engine floats a correct 25526109 casting number in front of a matching 457447 partial VIN.
A PROVEN PLATFORM
With that kind of power on tap, it should come as no surprise that the bottom of this Buick features a host of hot hardware. Behind the raucous 6-cylinder, a VIN-stamped, “BRF” tagged 4-speed twists power through big, 3.42 gears that offer a great combination of starting line grip and high-speed cruising ability. Factory power steering makes easy work of quick turns. Power-assisted stops are provided by a familiar combination of discs and drums. Aftermarket exhaust pipes charge rowdy Hooker Aero Chamber mufflers. And torque meets the pavement through chromed factory wheels, which spin 215/65R15 BF Goodrich Radial T/As around turbo-themed center caps.
TRADITIONAL BUICK LUXURY
Inside this awesome street bruiser you'll find a correct Gray and Black interior that's virtually spotless. Typical Buick fashion dictates more comfort than sport, but then, that's what GM's entry luxury brand has always been about. And naturally, that means this Grand National is loaded with all the features you'd expect including power windows, power locks, climate control, Cruise Control and a tilt steering wheel. In front of that wheel, Grand National-specific Lear Siegler seats feature 6-way power adjustment for the car's driver. Opposite those seats, factory gauges inhabit a blocky dash that's free of warps and cracks. And beneath that dash, a factory console frames an elegant factory shifter.
