1987 Buick Grand National Coupe (Turbocharged)
1987 Buick Grand National Coupe - Turbocharged, Inter-cooled 3.8 SFI ... over 14 thousand invested in restoration and improvements over the last three years alone. This is a Matching Numbers GN. Check out the VIN on the trunk sticker against the title. the goal was to keep this car as close to stock looking and performing as possible, with the exception of an upgraded coolant system brand new triple core aluminum radiator with twin electric fans and runs on synthetic coolant. This engine will now stay cool on the hottest sunniest days in Las Vegas an issue for most GN owners, with the black hood soaking up the sun.
Other upgrades include brand new premium reissue stock 15-inch Rims that are uncannily attractive aluminum replicas of the originals, at 40 lbs lighter for the set. They have a correspondingly new set of Michelin Defender 215 65 15 tires. All new fuel and transmission lines, seals, gaskets and filters. In the pictures you will see a new oil pump, master cylinder (brakes) and brake lines. Fresh oil and transmission fluid. Front end clip all new, including grill with upgraded grill emblem, new rubber bumper fillers and match painted, new headlights and new flat black painted bezels, turn signal and fog light lenses and lights, new front bumper match painted. Window tint looks like new. This is the highest HP best performing GN of all the years... no T-Tops, Power Windows, or Power Door Locks.
In addition to the front clip the rear clip also received new bumper fillers and match painted, repainted rear bumper. The body paint is very presentable, with just a tiny ding dent on the passenger door you'd have to look for. No rust on the exterior. Interior in excellent condition. 88,550 miles on the odometer. Driven less than 400 miles over last three years during restoration, and not at all this summer. I have a folder of all paperwork and receipts for restoration for this car since day one.
This GN turns heads at auto shows and on the road. I'm not selling it because I want to. I had brain surgery recently, resulting in the loss of peripheral vision in my left eye. I can no longer drive. It's time to pass my labor of love on... Now it's your turn to be the Darth Vader of your neighborhood. If you've been looking for a GN, this is the best for the money available in the Cleveland market at this time. I'm firm on my asking price of $24,000. I have at least 28K invested in the car, 40K total counting the 12K that was invested into the car during the first restoration, between 1997-9.
The rims that will be sold with the car are the 15" stock-looking type in the solo wheel pic, with the "turbo 6" center caps and new Michelin Defender tires. They were made F-o-r this GN, and wouldn't look right on any other car. Comes with Buick Grand National car cover.
I have a second set of brand new rims with performance tires that I ordered for this car. They are featured in the main ad pic, and are Chip Foose aluminum 18" x 8" with Continental performance tires. Size 245 45 ZR 18. The wheels and tires have approximately 100 miles on them. Just $1500 extra for the set of Foose wheels with tires if purchased with the car. A $4200 investment in wheels and tires you can have for just an additional $1500. They are featured in the main ad pic... This should sell quickly at $25,500 total for the GN with both sets of new wheels and tires.
Note. Absolutely no trades whatsoever! Will be sold for cash money before I sign over the clear title, and you must show me the money before you test drive the car. You must show me your DL and POI before you test drive it, and must come to Elyria to see the car, as I don't drive anymore.
This is a must see American Classic and everything within works well
