In 1986, the Buick Regal and its virtually identical cousin the Regal Grand National, wasn't selling in big numbers (only 2,384 T-Types, 5,512 Grand Nationals; built in 1986) but it was destined from the start to become a collectible classic car as it was attracting enthusiasts into Buick showrooms with its dramatic looks and turbo-charged 3.8L V6 engines with sequential fuel injection rated at 235 bhp. Virtually identical cousins, the T-Type had a clone but a clone with a twist, a T-Type with the Grand National package; it boasted a 'Darth Vader' look in monotone black only and retailed for an extra $635 and included the same turbo-charged engine, quick ratio power steering, an instrumentation group, sports mirrors with left-hand remote control, a four-speed automatic transmission, air conditioning and P215/65R15 black sidewall tires! These Turbo Buick's became one of the top muscle cars of the 1980's, as eventually demonstrated by the top-of-the-line renown and now legendary 1987 Grand National GNX (Grand National Experimental), made in partnership with 'McLaren Performance Technologies/ASC', of which only 547 were built and which boasted a further reportedly 41HP for a total of 276HP, although Buick famously underrated the GNX as actual output was closer to 300HP! A bigger turbo-charger and inter-cooler along with other enhancements gave this hot rod over 300 bhp and "Car & Driver's" test showed 0-60mph in 4.7 seconds, which amongst factory 1987 cars meant that only Porsche' 911 Turbo could match the GNX's acceleration!

In 1981, a major facelift to the second generation Regal gave it a more enhanced aerodynamic look and the car started competing on the NASCAR racing circuit where it fast became one of the favorites of several NASCAR racing teams. It won the Daytona 500 in the same year and a majority of the 1981/2 seasons races and the NASCAR manufacturers title in those same years. With its firm handling suspension, larger tires and sports wheels the car was an instant classic and marked the end of an era as the last of Buick's legendary muscle cars. 1984 was the first year of the Sequential Fuel Injection engine and Distributor-less ignition and considered by enthusiasts as the ultimate development of these legendary intercooled Regal's and Grand National's. The performance of these engines was well ahead of their time and the "small six"could easily match virtually any V8! Quarter mile performance was listed at 15.9 seconds compared to 15.1 for the Corvette!

In 1986 a modified engine design saw significant mechanical changes along with the already beneficial sequential fuel injection and distributor-less ignition system that included a new air to air intercooler, adjustments to its Garrett turbo, improved upper and lower intake manifolds and a redesigned exhaust system that boosted the performance even further from 200HP to a newly impressive 235HP + and 330 lb/ft of V8 slaying torque and by 1987 it had reached 245HP before sadly Buick dropped the T-Type package for both the Regal and the Grand National in 1987. The car's drag strip scorching performance would not only best GM's own Camaro and Corvette but also prove to catapult it to the forefront of 80's performance!

This particular example is a rare and mostly all original unabused example of a virtually fully loaded with factory options non-smoking owner's 1987 Buick Regal Grand National with some 11K original miles! The car has no signs or indication of any accidents or damage and has a clean CARFAX report also confirming the mileage as being original and with no history of any accident reports.

The 'Black' color paint is in exceptional condition throughout as is the original interior and the car drives exactly like such a well maintained and an extremely low mileage car should and must be seen and driven to be fully appreciated! The engine is extremely strong with spectacular acceleration and shows no oil leaks, the automatic transmission is very smooth shifting and the temperature always remains cool. 

You will surely look long and hard to find a finer and extremely rare unabused and unmolested and virtually fully loaded example of this exceptionally clean and increasingly collectible and desirable last of Flint's coveted final factory hot rods, a 1987 Buick Regal Grand National 3.8L S.F.I. V6 Turbo Coupe with only 11K original miles available anywhere else!
