HIGHLIGHTS: Unmolested 1980s American Icon! This Grand National has been kept true to its original form and remains unmodified. With a recent repaint and a well-maintained interior, this Buick will not disappoint!
BODY OVERVIEW: The body is clean and straight, with all of the proper emblems and trim still in place and in good condition. It has been repainted, but there are no indications that this car has been fully taken apart or restored. This example has been very well-preserved. Though it hasn't been stored in the original plastic inside a shipping container for the last 30 years, it has been well-maintained!
With just over 100,000 miles on the odometer, the body on this car is in remarkable condition for a car of his age. Additionally, lots of the weatherstripping has been replaced to keep this car looking factory fresh.
PAINT CONDITION OVERVIEW: This car was repainted recently, and it shows! Because the fresh paint hasn't been on it very long, there is a distinct lack of dings, dents, and other body damage. Black paint shows all body flaws, and this car is truly in great condition.
INTERIOR CONDITION OVERVIEW: Stepping inside this Buick has got to be what it feels like to step through a wormhole into 1987. Everything inside this car is just so gloriously 1980s. Slide the seat back, adjust the tilt steering column to the correct height, and you don't even have to start the car to feel like you're going for a ride! The interior is in excellent original condition, looking as if this car has half the indicated mileage. The interior is as complete as it is clean, with minimal wear and no cracks or other damage. The only note worthy item is the back of the rear seats are starting to show a little wear that is only visible if you are looking through the rear window. Otherwise, this is a clean car!
MECHANICAL OVERVIEW: Under the hood sits the original 3.8-liter turbocharged V6. This engine has been properly maintained, and runs like it should. This is a fun, fast, and unique little car! The turbo-V6 was not only innovative for the time period, but made for a serious street car. Just about anyone who remembers when these were new will tell you what street beasts they were!
This car drives straight, shifts smoothly, and has the all-around feel of a well-maintained car. This is a turn-key vehicle ready to hit the asphalt!
WHAT YOU'LL LOVE ABOUT THIS CAR: If you love Regals, Grand Nationals, G-bodies in general, or cars from the 1980s you'll love everything about this car. Plus, the original interior is in fantastic condition!
WHAT YOU MIGHT HATE ABOUT THIS CAR: If you loathe anything newer than 1973, this is not the car for you. If you live and die by V8s, but don't have an open mind, this car is also not for you. Other than that, there's not much bad to say about it!
DOES IT NEED ANYTHING? This car is turn-key as it sits, and needs nothing to be enjoyed as is. All the hard work to bring it back to looking nearly new has been done! All you have to do is enjoy it.
WHAT BUYER IS LOOKING FOR THIS CAR? Anyone looking for a classic 1980s American Icon! This is the perfect statement vehicle for anyone that came of age in the 1980s, and one of the most sinister looking unmodified cars out there. The buyer looking for this Grand National wants a car that is nice enough to show off, but not so nice that they are afraid to hit the streets in it every chance that they get.
